Sock Monkey

I can't believe how crooked the ribbon looks in this picture. I had to actually go and check the card to make sure this isnt what it looked like. Thank goodness it looks straight on the card. My son is going to a birthday party this weekend and the pair of them are monkeys when they get together. They remind me of Curious George.


Just for Soccer Stampin Up set. My son loves playing soccer, so have made the thank you card for his coach.

Where does time go?

It seemed like only yesterday I was posting my card to my website. I have been busy finishing up some layouts for swaps I am in. I will take some pictures and post them as well. I am away til Sunday then will post pics.
I was thinking of doing the 365 scrapbook, but if i cant post on my blog more than once a in the world will I keep up with the 365 days....
I do have pics of some other cards I have made.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend. We are heading out of town to go visit friends and the in-laws.

Under the Stars

I created this Card using Under the Stars stamp set from Stampin' UP. I got the inspiration from another the Stampin UP site. The challenge was for a group I am on using yellow and green.

Getting Started

Well I started this blog a year ago and all I managed to complete was the name of my blog. My life has taken a completely different turn in the last year and half. I have given up some old hobbies and started some new ones. My newest hobby now is Scrapbooking and Stamping. I am having fun incorporating stamps into my layouts. I decided to do scrapbooking the cheap way and use 8.5 by 11 paper. Well I have since learned that scrapbooking is not cheap no matter what size paper you use, and I didnt really like the 8.5 by 11 size, so I have moved onto the 12 by 12. I took some classes and was hooked.
I moved up to Campbell River and joined a Stampin Up club and loved the way all their paper and stamp pads match. I found I was spending quite a bit of money, so decided to join as a hobbyist. I have been teaching a few card classes.
My family has been supportive and enjoy looking to see what new things I have done. The kids love seeing what I have done with the pages for their scrapbook albums. My husband hates it when I drag out the camera, but has become a better sport as he knows he is not gonna get away without me taking a few pictures.
So when I am not scrapbookingor cardmaking, I am busy with my kids activities. The kids have me running just about everynight of the week. I also enjoy playing Wii games with the kids, watching the Canucks play hockey, and reading.
