Memory Works....

Took the plunge and signed on as a consultant for Memory Works - more for the discount to support my habit than to make any money....

I am awaiting the delivery of my "kit" and catalogs - can't wait to see what is in the summer edition.

Stay posted.

Perfect Bows

Flat Ribbon Trick for Card Making

Scrapbook Expo, NJ - 5-22-10

Had a great day and had great company at the Scrapbook Expo in NJ with Denise. My first "expo" - bought some stuff, not as much as I intended to but I controlled myself - lol. Took two classes - Card Tricks and Who Said Easy Needs to Be. Card Tricks was ok - Who Said Easy Needs To Be was by Story Tellers and it was interesting to see and work their scrapping projects.

I bought a ton of "bling" - $1 a pack at a great booth - tons of colors and who can go wrong for $1 a pack. Finally took the plunge and purchased the Glue Glider Pro with some refills (PermTac) - I also purchased one High Tac refill to see how that works. Stopped at the Croppers Delight NYC Booth and met Susie and Meryle - great people - can't wait to go to their 3 day crop in July - they also gave Denise and I a great bag to carry our stuff in. Purchased two more Nestabilities and one Shapeabilities Fancy Tags die. Got some other stuff, but no paper.

Just wanted to post a quick back soon!

Communion/Confirmation Card - Girl

Happy Mothers Day!!!

Well, here's my try at a communion and/or confirmation card for a girl - did a little scraplifting from SCS. A special friend's daughter is receiving communion so it motivated me to make a card - of course I made two - because all of you who know me know that I CANNOT give a card away if I don't have a second backup.

Comments welcome.

MIFD Inspection and Installation 2010

Another great year has gone by and we have celebrated with our "fire department" family. Inspection was great and the Installation Dinner at Lombardi's on the Sound was outrageous. I think everyone had a great time and congratulations to all the award winners. A special thanks to the Chiefs Office for all the hard work you put in all year that seems to go sometimes unnoticed. I'll post some pics later on today.

Missed National Scrapbooking Day though because of the weekend.....but there's always next year. I'll have to make up for it.
