Summer Sizzler

My local scrapbook store has a special going this summer (actually beginning in May). They are offering a Summer Sizzler Pass. The pass entitles the owner to one crop per month (May through August) for $5 each. Includes supper and hourly specials in the store. Oh, did I say it's a 12 hour crop each time.

Yup, you guessed it, I signed up. Couldn't pass that by.

Had so much fun!

Another crop last night from noon to midnight. Finished, from scratch, 13 pages; 2 pre-made pages; and journalling on one page. So that makes 16. I only stayed until about 10:15. I hit a creative wall, and just couldn't do any more.

I signed up for a 17 hour crop in April. It's from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. The plan is to make page kits to work from. I've got lots to do. Need to sort more pics, and get them organized. I bought a Creative Memories box, with zipper top. Hold 20 two pocket hanging files. I'm going to organize my pages in this box. I should have it all grouped and get lots done.

Have lots of pages to show you. Now I just have to get them photographed and posted. {{sigh}}

My friend, Susan

My friend, Susan, has such talent for making projects just pop. On Saturday, March 19th, she posted a  project that she had done, taking one stamp and making several versions using that one stamp. Susan loves Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi, so those influences are there, but she throws in her "Susan-ness." You have to see it >>>here<<<. Hope you enjoy it.
