I just had to use the back of this bunny. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it! You will not believe all of the amazing cards you will be able to make with these cute sets.

You will for sure see me around the Friday Night Chats and I'll be hopping along as Jessica continues to release new sets. Thank you Jessica for such a fun opportunity!

The set I've used today is called Dance. Jessica created it with her dear friend Linda in mind that lost her battle with Amyloidosis earlier this year. Jessica is donating $4 of each Dance stamp set to the Amyloidosis Support Group in Linda's name.

TSG43 birthday sparkles challenge

wishing you happiness

Today's challenge at the TSG blog is to make a sparkly birthday card. I used the Dream Big set from There She Goes and paired it with some of the sentiments from Treemendous. The papers are Cosmo Cricket Early Bird. I used these for two reasons. 1 I had it out and two strips perfect for my card just happened to be right there. So I used them! And 2, the yellow makes me happy. It makes me think of spring and not shoveling any.more.snow. Now I know there are folks that have gotten way more snow than I have and I shouldn't complain but I just can't help it!

We would love for you to play along! If you make a sparkly birthday card add it to the Mr. Linky on the TSG blog so we can see what you have created.

Hi there! I've been knee deep in elementary school yearbook stuff and haven't had time to make anything for a while. I finished up today and decided to pop into the scrap room for a bit. This one was quick and easy! I wanted to use my new Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety so I paired it with one of my favorite butterflies from There She Goes. I was going for a sunny and warm feel because we are so not that right now and I really, really wish we were.

some pages to share.

I went to Archiver's for a crop on Friday with some friends. We had a great time although I never get as much done as I hope! I got 3 done this time, so not too bad! :) I'm not even going to make you wait to see them all! Aren't I nice? Really I'm afraid I'll forget about them if I don't get them on here right now so here goes.

so fast

Don't you love these new American Crafts papers? Oh my goodness the sweetness pouring from AC's Dear Lizzie collection is killing me. Barb will have it in the store soon and she's got free shipping plus a fun ribbon promotion. For every $5 you spend in American Crafts products you will get a small spool of AC ribbon for free! Here is the link to all the AC stuff if you want to take a look and I will let you know the minute she gets Dear Lizzie in stock.

Basic Grey's Recess collection was perfect for these baseball pictures.

1st day

Here is some more Basic Grey for this 1st day page. I know it's a valentine
collection but I totally think it works here too!

I've got some cleaning to do and then I'm headed to the scrapbook room to get a few more pages in. It's a perfect snowy day for it too.

I spent some time at chess club today.

Who knew it could be so much fun?

I knew it could be serious.

It can also be emotional. (Really don't know what this one is :)...angry, sad. It's just chess!) For the record, she wasn't really upset...just messing around.

I can tell you though that I'm glad my little kiddos think chess is fun.
