These past two weekends have been so fun-filled and crazy I have been passing out ont he couch every night before my regular blogging. Sorry! I have techinques to share but those can wait until this Friday, when I plan to truly surely blog.

On Friday I cropped at The Scrappin' Table with some friends and had a blast! And then if that was not enough, a few of the gal cropping talked me into going to a crop at Scrapbook Oasis the next day for even more scrapping. Super fun times!

I finally finished up my “Walk In My Garden” book for my class at Collective Journey later this month:




“Walk In My Garden”
4×4 Mini Book
April 19, 2009
@ Collective Journey
Redlands, CA
909-793-2200


There are tons of buttons, glimmer mist, and some really fun techniques to make this book special. I used Cosmo Cricket's Ever After paper line, lots of Quickutz flowers, and some Prima fibers and flowers to decorate the book. Each page contains quotes and poems all about children and gardens–perfect for a Mother's Day gift for mom or grandma (or even your daughter if she has lots of little ones). See you there!

ALSO, my fellow Zutter Zister Julie Kelley is in the running to win a ScrapBox organizational system for her stuff-she has no room is a totally mobile scrapper. She needs your vote to win! You can vote once a day until the contest ends. So please help out a fellow scrapper!! Her room is #36 of the rooms pictured so please vote for her HERE.

I hear sounds of the kids enjoying the new Wii games we got. They are on sale at Target, buy 2 get 1 free so we got 3 of course. So I'm off to play.

Happy Crafting!!
