Stampin up has partnered with Becky Higgins(creator of Project Life) to bring this amazing Scrapbooking series into their product line. I got mine yesterday and it is awesome. I have needed to catch up on scrapbooking for a while now, and with this I think it may be possible. A lot of the work is already done with the color coordinating products and journaling starters. Another big plus it that you know it will be good quality because SU don't sell junk!
Today I have a project with another retiring stamp set, Good Sport. I was asked by the SIU Saluki girls softball to come up with a table favor for their Senior Night celebration. They wanted the school colors which are maroon and black but the closest SU color is Cherry Cobbler. The yellow softball kind of clashes but that was ok with them so I got over it.
Here is 60 of them packed up and ready to go. Now to finish up two birthday parties today and clear my agenda!

I have been working on some flowers for a class as well as working on three parties and haven't had time for much else this week. I used various punches, dies, and fringe scissors to make these and then attached them to a gift bag. I have some made with stems as well and will share those tomorrow. TFSB!(thanks for stopping by!)

The retirement list is posted, you can view it by going here and here. I decided to post a card made with a couple retiring items, the Pop-n-Cuts card base die and the Zoo Review stamp set. The rest of this post is about family if you want to check out now.
Did you have a good Easter weekend, we certainly did, it was perfect! We had beautiful weather and lots of family time starting on Friday and going strong until late last night. The kids had a blast. I didn't get a picture of them doing Resurrection eggs but they enjoyed it and it is such a good teaching tool.
Empty Easter baskets on the front porch awaiting the Easter Bunny(we put one out for Shelby as well).
Enjoying the treats the Easter bunny brought(before bath time and getting dressed for church).
Ready for church minus Shelby.
After church, the hunt is on!
Ava and Chad posing together.
Dalton and Seth posing together.
My oldest daughter didn't make it in time for anything except dinner since she had to work. I managed to burn my hand early in the day while getting Resurrection Rolls out of the oven so I spent a lot of time with my hand in a bag of ice(even through church) . My husband insisted I go to the doctor but I couldn't miss out on any of the fun. Now, it looks as if I should of listened, it is probably going to require an antibiotic.

Have you thought about the Paper Pumpkin kits in the mail? I subscribed some time ago and haven't really had the the time to complete any of the kits yet. Sadie, my 10 year old, asked if she could start getting them and she loves it. She got her starter kit last month and this is her first card, I am so excited that she loves to stamp. She checks the mail every day hoping her next kit is there. Thanks for stopping by!

I love this little bunny from the stamp set Baby We've Grown. I found these carrots at the Dollar Tree and they are filed with Kool Aide, added some cute packaging and now they are ready for the Easter baskets. I had a fun day yesterday stamping with a brand new stamper and I have to say he is a natural.

Since I have been working on so many boy birthday parties lately, I decided to make a girl birthday card. Shelby and Sadie are both dancers and ballet is their favorite so I might give this card to one of them. I used some retired DSP along with Rose Red and Pink Pirouette card stock. Thanks for stopping by!

I found these little construction dies and couldn't resist buying them. We go to a lot of birthday parties so I know these will get used a lot. I used Naturals Ivory, Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, and Smoky Slate card stock. The wheels have Candy Dots added. Dalton hasn't seen this card yet so it may not last until the next birthday party. Thanks for stopping by!

I am still working on the caterpillar party but have run into a small problem, I can't fund the bubbles I used on the first set so I will have to wait to finish it. I made a little M&M tube as a candy treat and the bubbles will have all the things he ate through.
I think I have bought each of the kids their own book through the years. The one in the photo was Seth's and I always write them a message in the front of the book and date it. this one was given to Seth in 1985 for his second birthday. thanks for stopping by!

Sorry, just realized my camera must have a smudge on the lens, it could be cotton candy, funnel cake, ketchup, ice cream, or any combination of these things. I tried inking up a block and stamping it to make a background for this card. I like how it turns out different every time you do it. Off to catch up on laundry, thanks for stopping by!

I had planned to finish the rest of the Hungry Caterpillar party yesterday and share it with you today but between doctors visits, laundry stacked to the moon and back, and severe weather it didn't happen. So, here is a sympathy card using the stamp set Serene Silhouettes. The card stock colors are Soft Sky and Night of Navy.
We had a tornado warning party in the closet last night and the kids loved it so much they want to do it every night. We don't have a basement nor a storm shelter so after our town experienced a deadly tornado a couple years ago I cleared out a closet under the stairway and designated it the tornado party place. I put a few toys, radio, flashlights, batteries, blankets, snacks,ect in there. We were in bed when the tornado sirens sounded, so I ran to their rooms, woke them, and hurried into the closet. They were scared at first but then quickly settled in and Dalton even wanted to sleep there the rest of the night.

Isn't this beautiful! This is what I saw when I looked out the window this morning. This is a Star Magnolia tree that was already here when we bought the house. It is usually the first thing to bloom each Spring and I look forward to it. As you can see on the ground underneath, we had a storm last night that took a lot of the blooms off.
I am working on another birthday party, this time it is Very hungry Caterpillar. I have some other things made but haven't photographed them yet.
My Shelby made it home last night around midnight, completely worn out plus she had an allergy attack while gone which left her with an earache. The plane trip made the ear hurt a lot worse so we are headed to the doctor today before we take off for a couple nights in St. Louis.

I cut two trucks from a Cricut cartridge and then attached them to a Fancy Favor box. Thanks for stopping by!
