Jumping into June!

I haven't been such a very good blogger lately. It's been quite some while since I've updated anything, but hopefully that's all about to least for the next 2 1/2 months.'s out, and I intend to enjoy every minute of it. That means TONS of scrapping, organizing, and gathering new ideas and inspiration. And it begins THIS week. I am going to the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Arlington. My best friend, Jakki, and I try to make this a yearly getaway. Some years it hasn't worked out, but most years it has, and this looks to be another one of them. We're attending two of the cropping parties and taking one class. I plan to take lots of pics and share them right here.

For now, I think I'll leave you with photos of our May class. We had a blast "blinging" things up on these layouts, and they turned out pretty cute, wouldn't you agree?

St. Jude Success!

It's been a week since our National Scrapbook Day/St. Jude Charity crop, and I am thrilled to report the results!

We had 14 croppers in attendance, and together we raised $300 for St. Jude! I want to thank all the ladies who got donations, bought raffle tickets, and bid on silent auction items. Your generosity touches my heart, and I know St. Jude will be appreciative of you as well.

Rita Beck raised the most money individually. Because of her fundraising, she wins the Tote-ally Cool Tool Tote by All My Memories. Congratulations, Rita, and thank you for your hard work!

I'd also like to thank the following businesses who so generously donated door prizes for our day:

Amber's Beauty Parlor
Blue Moon Java
Butterfly Garden
CJ's Diner
Fanette's Flower House
JP Ranch
Loye's Pharmacy
Merle Norman
Oak Alley Boutique
South Beach Experience
Tangles Beauty Salon

Finally, a picture speaks a thousand words. Here are a few shots of our fun day together!

Join us next year for NSD!
