blog slackin'

cku was so much fun, i met so many awesome people. two of them are in this picture... from l-r is gabriella, renee, katrina and myself) i had totally expected to come back from cku exhausted and sick of scrapbooking (temporarily!) but instead i felt refreshed and wanting more! i'm still working on a couple of my projects, don't have a lot of time but i don't want them to sit unfinished! i'll post some pics from cku later along with some finished projects.

i got to have a nice getaway last weekend, teaching a couple of classes with love2scrap at their retreat in pigeon lake... heavenly!! i went last fall, LOVED it, and can't wait to go in october. we have friends and family down at the lake as well, so we all headed down for some r&r. that weekend they were opening up a new ice cream shop, daisy mcbeans (cute place!), and mikehiela got her picture in the paper, standing there, all cute with a cone in either hand... another one for the scrapbook!! good thing she's not shy... she's been on tv twice, as well (news programs) ... she loves the limelight!!

i thought these would look really cool in our regular living areas, not just our studios or bedrooms. i painted this 'h' set in times new roman, plain old black, sanded it up a little bit to distress it a bit, then rubbed some walnut stain into it to age it. this will have to sit in my bookcase until mytwo year old son is old enough not destroy it when i lean it up against the fireplace... or, maybe on the mantle. hmmm... Posted by Picasa

la letter 'e'

here's a couple more letters i wanted to share... the first one, a lower case 'e' set in times new roman, was done by our lovely and very own elizabeth , also known as jrabbit . elizabeth blended some mm paints, covered the lower part of her 'e' with crate paper, adorned with a heidi swapp flower and ribbon, mm brad, frame and bookplate. she attached her ribbon with a stapler.

can't wait to see your creations!!
