…..and ……$22,100  was raised for the BC’s Childrens Hospital Foundation by BC’s Crop 4 Kids!!…WHOOHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!………Check out their blog for more details!!


what is it about monday….blechhhh! i think we all just tend to cram too much stuff into the weekend and come monday…we need a break…but it’s back to the routines on monday so no break time allowed…lol.
I had an absolute blast teaching my class at the BC Crop 4 Kids in Abby yesterday…and volunteered to teach another next year!! whoohoo!!!! Only next year I am planning on staying and cropping for the whole weekend instead of just running in, teaching, and running out again…lol.  Hubby has already been put on notice…lol!
Yesterday was a GORGEOUS day as well….warm sunny yummy….I took this photo in the parking lot at the convention center where the above mentioned crop was held…almost Oct and still they bloom!! gotta love BC hey!!! 🙂

I did manage to finish up this layout last night though, just an old photo of my littlest one when she was 5!! 🙂

What a busy day I have going on today!! I am teaching a class at BC’s crop 4 kids tomorrow in Abby so need to get and keep my ducks in a row for that…am also designing a card kit so need to keep that in the back of my mind for the moment, will also be involved in a super secret project very soon too so need to get some ideas rolling around in my head for that….(if my head explodes over the next few weeks you will know why…!!!!! I just hope life doesn’t throw me any curve balls in the next month!!!!!
On another note I have named another Fiskars product ….yeah!!!! The first was a stamp set called Flip n’ FLop, the second was a blue ink pad called Blue RIbbon Winner and now the third thing is a brand new squeeze punch they have coming out, it will be called “Getting Antsy”….you guessed it, it’s an ant…..LOL! 🙂 Love all their squeeze punches so this one will be no exception!! Can’t wait to get my sweaty little (big) crafty hands on that one and the scalloped circles… and the scalloped squares!! 🙂
My daughters birthday last weekend was a huge success….they had a “crafty” party! I gave them all little note books, scissors and gluesticks….dragged out a whole bin of my scraps, a few punches, couple lengths of ribbon and a box of dollar store stickers I’ve been wanting to pare down….well they certainly helped with that…!!!! I think they used half the box….LMAO!! But it was all good and they had a blast….kept them busy for over an hour and a half….lol!!

And here’s a layout and card from yesterday…managed to squeak these out amidst all the craziness… 🙂

….lotsa junk on these…inking, stamping, embossing, glossy accents, charms, bling, etc etc……used the Fiskars craft drill (with the smallest bit) for the holes at the top…worked like a charm! 🙂

I wasn’t happy with the binding and the lack of color on my CJ (which I posted previously) so I rebound it and added color with Rangers Stickles. It looks better than this IRL, there’s alot of texture that you miss in a picture….and the Stickles are dang hard to photograph correctly… I’ve also posted my two pages within the journal….can’t wait to see what kind of pages the other participants make!! 🙂

LOL…..just a funny for today 🙂 🙂
