Kinda Sad…

May 20, 2009

Yes­ter­day I received my com­pli­men­ta­ry issue of Mem­o­ry Mak­ers July/Aug issue… This lay­out is part of the “Trends To Try Today” arti­cle by MMM ’08 Staci Etheridge. It should­n’t be too hard to guess my trend… Glit­ter! I used pre-glit­tered pat­terned paper and chip­board let­ters, cre­at­ed my own glit­tered brads, accent­ed pat­terns on my papers using Stick­les and altered chip­board using loose glit­ter. Yes, I love glit­ter. It is sad to think that this is my last pub­li­ca­tion with Mem­o­ry Mak­ers. I have so loved work­ing with every­one and will cer­tain­ly miss them and this...

As soon as I got home from CHA I hit the ground run­ning. No time to relax for a sin­gle sec­ond. I guess I will do a lit­tle run down of what has been going on in my lit­tle neck of the woods… 1st… CHA was a blast. Going with Maya Road is always so much fun. I did loads of make n takes, gave away fun stuff and got to chat with lots of won­der­ful peo­ple. 2nd… As soon as I got home I had to instant­ly start on a lay­out for Mem­o­ry Mak­ers. It is going to be includ­ed in an arti­cle in the July/August issue. I am not even going to tell you what it looks like as you will know it is mine the sec­ond you see it. It uses...

Not being able to share…

Oct 7, 2007

This cute snowflake is going to be an embell­ish­ment for a mini album and believe me more will be made for hol­i­day projects, gift tags etc. Today I post­ed a lit­tle project using one of the “Tis the Sea­son” stamps designed by Sande Krieger and some shrink plas­tic.

While I was in Beau­mont Alan and Ans­ley switched my scrap­room and Ans­ley’s bed­room. I got a big­ger scrap­room and Ans­ley got the room with the pol­ka dots paint­ed on the walls (Ter­ri’s old room).

Talk about a phone call…

Aug 22, 2007

Get­ting the call from Pat­ty Craft say­ing I was a Mem­o­ry Mak­ers Mas­ter for 2008 is just so over­whelm­ing. I can hard­ly remem­ber the phone call. Mon­day, I checked the caller ID on my phone so many times to make sure I real­ly did get that call that I lost count.
