It's been a crazy summer, where has the time gone by, I am not complaining but wow have I been busy. From driving my kids around for playdates, skating, etc. For those who don't know me, I am also a nurse and there has been a baby boom in our area which means I am the lucky girl that gets to do baby visits. Also, this week has been all about workshops…why because of the awesome promotion stampin up has launched. I have been doing workshops, workshops and more… Getting an additional 35$ of hostess benefits is a great bonus to spend on new product for the 2010-2011 idea catalog.
Over the top Thursday is something I truly want to pursue. I want to create a project that I feel I have given it my best. Jordan's Too Great for Small dreams page means a lot to me.
Just finished workshop #3 for this week, it's been great, lot's of fun tonight and we booked 2 more workshops with these ladies. What a great bunch! We even decided that we would meet again in September but Lysanne's workshop will be in pyjas. Yes it's going to be a pyjama party! I just can't wait. I just love to stamp in my "jamies".
I just loved this picture, it was when my brother in law & sister in law got married in Jamaica. Jordan was super cute on the beach. She was only 2 1/2 years old. If you know me, you know I love it when everything matches. So for our family pictures, I bought clothes that coordinated. When I saw Elegant Soirée designer paper, it reminded me of the Jamaica pictures… and I needed to create. Yes, even if I am very busy, I still stamp for fun! I want my girls to have great memories of their childhood.
Why did I write too great for small dreams? If you don't know Jordan, all I have to say is our little girl knows what she wants, no one will be stepping on her toes at school. I am almost convinced that she will be following her daddy's footsteps and owning a few businesses. I hope they are stamping related do, lol. Ok, enough chatting about me: the distressing essentials kit, wow it rocks! you have got to try it out. I curled my flower petals, sanded my paper, placed my pearls with one of the tools and distressed my paper with the tea stain ink. Also, if you look at my second picture, you will see that the soft suede cardstock has been layered. Stampinup cardstock is over the top great quality. If you like layers, with this tool you can separate the cardstock. If you don't own this kit, you need to add it on your wish list.
