What kind of French Fries go in this box?

     Next weekend, I will be attending Consultant Camp, with my upline Dana and other consultants.  We had the opportunity to sign up for a Cricut Swap, if we wanted to participate.  I thought, of course, I want to do this.  Then I had to get my wheels spinning to make something great and creative.  I let my imagination go wild on this project.

     I decided to make a french fry box from the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge.  Then I made 5 tags from different color card stock.  I used Smoothie, Lagoon, Pear, and Creme Brulee.  The tags were then tied together with bakers twine to make a mini album.  I stamped on the tags and used stardust glitz, clear sparkles, and knotted clear beads on the bakers twine.

***warning there are many photos in this blog today...

        Isn't this cute???  I already know what photos I will  be putting on the pages.  Would you like to make this project?  I would love to do it with you and some of your friends at a home gathering.  Remember June is the super special of Buy 2 stamp sets and get one free.  Call me to book your party!!!!

Race for the Cure!!!!!!

   Last Saturday was the 21st. annual Race for the Cure.  We usually walk the race every year in honor or memory of family members who had breast cancer.  This year was a little more emotional.  It was my mom's first time walking as a survivor.  She has walked this race for her sister and grandmothers and cousins and friends but this was her first time in a pink shirt.  We were all choked up when she put on her pink shirt.  But the best part of the day was that SHE was THERE to celebrate being a survivor!!!!!

So the big message for today is to get checked out annually because we all have hope that there will be a cure soon.

Hugs, Holly

Last Weekend was GREAT!!!!!

   Last Saturday was the last mini 8 hour crop for the season.  I will start them again in September.  These mini 8 hour crops are so much fun for the ladies because they get to get comfy in my home and get all of my attention.  The crops are fun for me because I get to work one on one with the ladies.  The mini crops are limited to 8 people.  During the day you receive 3 stamp fairy presents, 2 prizes, technique class, dinner, and a chance to win of the bigger prizes. 

  The stamp fairy delivered 3 cute gifts.  The first one was waiting for the guests to arrive.  I gave the second one around 4:00 and the last was given around 8:00.

Large clothes pin clip with a Hello sign that has a magnet on the back for later use.

Treat bag with plain and peanut M&M with some pretzel sticks.  Great mid-day snack.

Some of the ladies received the mini stamp set and a few received the mini medleys because they got their stamp set at the March mini crop.

          We started our day with a technique class.  I taught the ladies all about liquid glass and spotlight stamping.  Everyone loved  them!!!
