May 19, 2010

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!! This has been a great weekend for me and I hope you had one too! I have my youngest home and we spent the day together shopping, watching movies and him playing his hand made guitar for me. I am posting so pics of his guitar that he made himself! It is gorgeous the pics don't do it justice!
It is so nice to have him home again!
I had a long talk with my husband's cousin Deb today and want to give a big shout out to her! She invited me to come stay with her and go to the Great American Scrapbookers Convention in Arlington, TX June 3-5! I am so excited as I have never been to anything like this before!
Wow! I was laid out for a couple of days with a bad case of the stomach virus! Feeling much better today, I only feel like a freight train hit me. Hopefully I will be back to normal soon.
I did want to post some picks that submitted for the challenges at Simply Scrapping today. The Under the Sea Birthday wishes was for the Stamp Challenge. Purple Lady Tilda was for the Card Challenge in which we had to create our own patterned paper, I created the patterned paper by stamping the flower images with Versamark and then sprinkling clear embossing powder over the stamping and using my heat gun, heat embossed all those lovely flowers. I then took my purple momento ink pad and a sponge and went all over the page, I then used a kleenex to wipe all the ink off of the embossed flowers. I also inked up my ribbon to match the paper! The next one is The End of Summer and I entered this is the Copic Challenge. Thank you so much for looking and any comments are greatly appreciated!
I just heard some bad news Ronnie James Dio died today from stomach cancer! Very sad the rock and roll world is truly going to miss him! Who will ever forget Rainbow!
Also, sadly my friend Lisa from The Purple Place had to step down from the Design Team at Colorful Creations and they have asked me to take her place on the Design Team over the Bi-monthly card challenge. I have given it a lot of thought since I am so very new to this. I have decided to give it a try and see if I can handle it. I thank Brenshevia and Toccara very much for having the belief in me to ask me to join their site. I hope you will join me and join in on the fun! Here is a link to the site.
