Today I have the privilege of seeing a friend of mine who is an awesome demonstrator, Deb Valder. She is holding her SU family meeting today and it involves swapping, snacks and STAMPING!!! I cannot wait! The theme for swaps is glitter and although my swaps pictured here may not look like they have glitter, believe me, the picnic table on my deck can attest to the fact. Too bad I can't take THAT! lol

Also pictured are two cards we did at Christine's workshop on Wednesday night. What a lovely group of ladies! It was sooo much fun. It was such a pleasure meeting everyone and I hope to see everyone again soon! Christine wanted to do a card with a cupcake theme. Unfortunately, I have no stamp sets with cupcakes so I improvised. I used punches and this is the result. Can't say the glueing of the sprinkles was much fun but the end result was tasty looking. lol

Below is a flip album that we did at 3rd Wednesday Club this month. Credit is due to Linda Heller from StampingSchool! Another awesome demonstrator!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the day!

How about THIS card!

This card is soooo sweet and cool. Amy made this card. The pic does not capture the beauty or talent of this card. Mostly though, it does not capture Mason's gorgeous eyes like his mom's. :) Amy is one talented stamper like many of you!! Thank you Amy for letting me share.

Thank you all for stoppin' by,

Updates for Stamp Camps...

(Top and bottom of 3x3 notecard box.)
...because I've been so busy with Relay for Life and all and oh yes, the new catalog :), I now have the opportunity to post pics of the 3x3 box for the stamp camp to be held on Monday, June 29 at 6:00 p.m. The cost is $15 and includes a packet of the designer series paper Parisian Breeze which is retiring along with embellishments to make the box as you see. You also make six 3x3 cards and envelopes are included. The paper choices from this packet are beautiful and it is textured, a heavier weight paper than normal. You do not have to make your box exactly like mine or your cards like mine. You DO need to bring an adhesive and a bone folder if you have one.

If you are interested in attending this stamp camp, please e-mail me or contact me by phone no later than this Thursday, June 18.
Keep in mind the Scrapbooking stamp camp on Thursday, June 25, at 6:00 p.m. with a fee of $10.00. For more details and other events, see my Events Calendar! :)

It was birthday greetings and anniversary wishes on Saturday here at the Clive household. Erin dropped Scout and Pace off for me and she and her mom took Trig for a few hours with things to do. What a fun day we had. This is a rare moment that Pace would let big sister near him but Nonny asked them to sit for a pic and it was THAT easy. lol
Scout enjoyed the scent of our new lilac tree here. She looked so pretty in her dress and braids. Her hair is actually down past her waist when not braided!
Pace was having fun on the porch playing with some wooden blocks and posing for Bop who held the camera. We walked up to the ballpark where there are swings and they romped around and we came back for lunch where they ate everything!

Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I'm another year older but I earned every one of them and wouldn't trade it for anything. :)
