Catching Up!

Wow!  I've had a few busy weeks-in fact, a very busy month!  Where did September go????  I do love this time of year-the colors, the smells (my scensty is going full force!) and of course, the candy corn!!

I spent a FUN weekend at the Mall of American with my favorite people from Reminisce!! at Archivers Scrapfest.  Did I mention the FUN I had!!  Here's a photo of some special people:)


We spent three FULL days, running the Make and Take booth-where the lines were SO long and very patient ladies and gentlemen waited over an hour at times to do our projects.  Andria also had four classes each day (not Sunday) and I helped her Friday afternoon, with the layout class.  Love those layouts!  We were the hosts of a crop on Friday night and met some really nice ladies.  Here's the young lady who won the huge door prize Reminisce gave out.  wish I could remember her name.  She was so sweet!


Oh and that's Shelly behind her:)

And here's a good picture of Shelly:)  Someone should remind me to use a little bronzer or something!  Is that how you spell bronzer?  


Such a fun weekend.  We topped it off with a yummy dinner at Chevy's and a few adult beverages:)  Andria and Robin had to leave us early :(


Just this past weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing Lynne again:)  No pictures from our crazy, busy weekend, but it sure was fun.  She was taking some Vintaj classes in Galena, Il. and I was her taxi!!  I got some uninterrupted scraping time and just relaxed.  

Then back to Iowa City where we scrapped some more and she created some crazy cute stuff that you will have to wait to see.  But check her blog out in a couple of days!!

And because I know you've been dying for an update on my turkey-turns out there's THREE of them!!  (I know Lynne, you have lots more than me)


I know there's only two in this picture, but the other one is shy:)

Have a fantastic weeke everyone!!  So glad the rain ahs stopped and the sun is shining-off to walk my Millie!!

New Kits in the Sweet Tooth Store!!!!!!

With all the goings on with my family, I'm a few days late with the release of the newest layout kits from Sweet Tooth!  But I think they are worth the wait.  

First up, is a fun sports layout featuring the new "Making the Team" line from Bella Blvd.


I love the colors in this line-perfect for any sports team!  Included in the kit is a fun sticker sheet full of sports themed phrases and icons.  There will be leftovers from what you use with this kit!  This kit is just $13 and is available now!


The next layout was created with the "Nightfall" line from American Crafts.  They've done it again!  Perfect for all your fun fall activities.  This kit is just $15 and comes with a complete set of Thickers!  Plenty left over for other layouts!

Be sure to check out Shellys cards while you're there.  She used a gorgeous new line from Pebbles called "Fresh Goods"!

New Sketch!!

Good morning!!  It is a beautiful fall like morning here in Iowa and I LOVE it!  Looking forward to a LONG walk to burn off just a bit of the eating I did this past weekend!

Here is the newest sketch from My Sketch World!

I created this layout based on the sketch.  Loved using some of my Teresa Collins "Celebration" line.


Thanks for looking and be sure to check out the My Sketch World blog and see what the other ladies created with this sketch!!!

Another fun Mini!

I've had fun creating some mini albums this summer.  I wanted to share one that I made for The Scrapbooking Studio using a tag album from Pinecone Press and the beautiful "Timeless" line from Teresa Collins.  This album holds a lot and there are more available as well as the paper at The Scrapbooking Studio.


I decided to use this album for Molly's High School Graduation pictures.  I LOVED how it turned out!

I started the album with a few of her Senior pictures, taken by Shelley Haganman

Then a few photos before her graduation ceremony.  Typical Miss Molly:)


A few at the ceremony at Carver Hawkeye Arena.  Which wasn't the best for me and my lack of photography skills:(  but I got a few!



And finished up with some pictures from her party.  

And then my favorite Molly picture:)


Thanks for looking!  

Heading out to do some shopping with Katie!  She's home for a LONG weekend and we are going to enjoy!
