Happiness is...

Great Weekend for Crafting!!

   Over this past weekend I hosted the Bracket Frame Workshop.   These ladies that came are soooo talented.  On Friday night Rita, Karen, and Patti came to work on theirs and on Saturday, Deanna, Kim, Meghan, Sandy, Karen, Arleen, Denise, and Michele completed their frames.  Each person created such a unique project.  I am so proud of each lady and their completed frames.  I will share with you all of the finished frames and their creators.

Didn't they all do a fabulous job?  You can order your frame kit from me for $20.00.  The next workshop will be the Home Sweet Home Star.  We will meet on April 19 and 20th.  You can chose your paper and embellishments for just $25.00.  Let me know if you are interested in joining in on the fun!!!

Spring is in the Air

   The new Spring/Summer Idea book is out!!!!  Yes I am yelling this great news.  The book is amazing :)

Today I held a gathering for a lovely group of ladies.  The hostess wanted to make Spring scrapbook page.  We created a page using Chantilly paper and Easter Wishes stamp set.  We added a bit of glitter on the eggs.  I think everyone had a great time and loved their project.

So what do you think of the layout?  We can create a layout at your home gathering with your friends.  Call or email me to set up your date.
