Cobble Hill Puzzle

I used to work on puzzles a lot when I was in my twenties. I saw this one at Hobby Lobby and decided to do one for old time sakes. Lol, took me quiet a long time to finish it. That's ok, I really enjoyed working on this. I'm certain I'll be looking to do another one.

Halloween Cards 2014

I've been creating some Halloween cards to give to friends at work. Have a few more to go. Hopefully I'll make enough for every one. Also have to get started on goodie bags...with tons of chocolate.

* Orange cards purchased at Hobby Lobby, "Paper Studio"
* Colored with Copic Markers and, or Crayola Color Pencils
* Black cat stamp w/pumpkins is a Hampton art stamp (Michael's)
* Pumpkin Girl (M268) is a Stampendous stamp
* BOO stamp from Stampabilities
* Both Pumpkin Girl and BOO stamp purchased at Hobby Lobby
*Majority of embellisments are from Michael's...Recollections

Have a few more ideas...see what else I can come up with.

Colored stamp images using Copic markers and Crayola color pencils.

Cats on pumpkins stamp is a Hampton art stamp. Pumpkin Girl (M268) Stampendous stamp.

Orange cards, "Paper Studio" from Hobby Lobby. Majority of embellishments, including paper, printed and white, washi tape are all Michael's, "Recollections". Didn't get to do any of the one with Bears, but this one. Mainly because it takes more time to color. I'm thinking of making a few more of the Bear cards for next year.

Scrapbook Convention

A couple of weeks ago, Rey, Meg and I drove to San Marcos for a few days so that I may attend "Creative Keepsakes" scrapbook convention. It's held every year at the Embassy Hotel/Convention Center. It was four days of creative scrapbook heaven. Had tons of fun and can't wait to attend again next year. Here's a couple of photos of Meg and I taking a lunch break at the Vendors Fair. Relaxed a bit and then headed back for some more shopping.

My partner in crime...Meg loves scraping just as much as I do. God...we had so much fun.

Scraps of Fun...

Ok,...I finally did it. I've been wanting to do this for quiet some time and I finally did it. I'm starting my one and only blog. I'm not that good with computers, so I know for certain this will be a learning process. I basically want to keep a list of my scrapbook layouts and other craft creations, including cards and mini albums. I also enjoy taking pictures, so I want to include some of these on my blog. Pictures of family, friends, pets and events is what I incorporate with the things I create. This is something I just want to do for myself...share with family and friends and any one out there that is interested in "Look"ing. Vi-

These are a couple of cards I made on mother's day a couple of years ago. First card I gave to my sis Brenda and second one I gave to my sis Laura...First card is pic of family on Thanksgiving and second is pic of Laura herself...
Later on, I would like to include the items I used to create these cards. For example...papers, stamps, decorations and cut outs.
