Happy Bird Day!!!!

Wow! It has been such a feeding frenzy today!!! What a great variety we've had at the feeders. In the past, it has meant either a snow storm on the horizon or better weather in the near future. Could it be SPRING is near?! Hmmm..... Central New York State, February still, ummm..... probably NOT!!!

I've decided to put the first ten blog stoppers here in a raffle who leave a comment about my blog or Stampin' Up! Better yet!!! Sign up as a demonstrator for $169, regular $199, a value of $355! AND get an extra stamp set of your choice valued up to $47.95. Okay, now seriously... Leave a comment. Someone will be drawn from the first ten comment leavers and you'll win this:

The Country Living Note Kit by Stampin' Up! containing Notes for You die-cut, double-mounted stamp set, 4 Whisper White gift cards, 4 Whisper White mini envelopes, 1 Always Artichoke Classic Stampin' Spot. It also contains tips and instructions! It was something that I received when I renewed my subscription to Country Living in the fall, a special that was offered to everyone!

I'll mail it to the winner if you are someone that I do not normally see. Good luck ladies!

I finally played with embellishing the cover of my 12x12 photo album! I'm really loving it. It's missing something but I haven't figured out what yet. I used one of the new texture plates for the Big Shot along with a few of the other Big Shot dies. Yup! My latest favorite toy. The letters are chipboard, colored with our markers and then just covered with a coating of Crystal Effects. How quick and easy is that?! Gotta love that new ribbon, too, huh?

Thanks for stopping by. ;) Don't forget to leave a comment for the contest above!

Projects Completed!

A while back, I had purchased a couple of scrapbooking kits from me (lol) to complete a couple of hanging projects for Scoutie and Pace to include a couple of pics each of them. I just couldn't seem to find the perfect pics of Pace to put on his and then, lo and behold, we had gotten the news that Erin was expecting again. Well, that meant that I (Nonny) had to order more chipboard. I already had lots of the scrapbooking kit because they come with so much. Trig's pics were actually harder to find because there have been fewer pics to choose from, being he's younger and because someone is almost always holding him. lol I had to crop Rachael out of the center pic. This was taken at the birthday party last week for Scoutie and Pace.

Last night, Rachael and I spent the night at Casey and Erin's to watch Pace and Trig because Casey and Erin had an 85th birthday party to go to, an Aunt of Erin's. We had a lot of fun. Scout spent the night at her other grandparent's house where she kept another of their grandchild company for the evening. Rachael and I cannot wait to do it again. It was a lot of fun. We must of really tuckered Pace out because everyone was up before him this morning. lol

Below is a picture of a very quick and easy photo book that I made for Erin before going over last evening. When we take pics of the kids, I always make sure we have extras developed so that we can give them to her. Inside this album are our Medium Translucent Envelopes that are holding the pics, back to back and you can very easily take pics out/put pics in. Using these envelopes for mailing are awesome too because then everyone gets to see your artwork going through the mail. :)

Thanks for stopping by. :)

I have Nancy's workshop to get ready for tomorrow and Club for Wednesday to get ready for. Yay! Cannot wait for either. I'm sure both events will be great and everyone pleased that they attended.
