August Layout Class

These layouts use papers and embellies from the gorgeous Sultry line by Basic Grey. We will play with paint on both of the layouts, so prepare to get messy!

(I'm still deciding on the perfect photos for "Pure Joy")

Passionately Pink for the Cure

I am so excited about this year's charity crop to benefit breast cancer research. This year, we will be working directly with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, rather than working under the umbrella of Scrapbooks Etc. magazine (as in years past). This is awesome, because SGK has hooked us up with a special team blog (we are the Passionately Pink Papercrafters - how d'ya like that?) as well as some other helps along the way. It's going to be great! I've set us a team goal of raising $500, and I know that with everyone working together, we can meet or beat this goal!

Okay, so, details for the crop:
It will be held Saturday, September 11, from 9 am to 5 pm at Emmanuel Baptist Church on Homer Road in Minden. The fee is $25, and this includes a donation to SGK, snacks, drinks, and lunch. To register online, simply fill out the form below. Be sure to indicate whether you will be paying by check or PayPal. You will need to register by September 1, so that I can get an accurate headcount.

If you won't be able to attend, you can still help out by donating on our team page. I also encourage you to ask friends and family to donate as well - the more the merrier! (Please note - giving a donation on the team blog is not the same as registering for the crop - if attending, you will need to fill out the registration form and pay your $25 crop fee to me.)

Altered Clothespin

This was one of those fun, experimental, try-out-all-your-cool-toys and techniques kind of project. It's paint, it's decoupage, it's making paper flowers, it's hand stitching, it's inking - it's heaven! Sooo much fun to make, and functional, too! I could see using the title "Memories" instead of "Recipes" and showing off favorite photos, or even a "To-Do" for a teacher's desk. The possibilities are endless.

And - I'm teaching this project on Saturday! Just email or call me if you'd like to participate.

Oh my! It's been nearly a month since my last post! Gosh, where to start? July was such a busy month, what with our vacation in Tennessee, and then our family get-together at Toledo Bend. But what's really been keeping me busy since that time is the precious little one you see in the picture. Her name is Penny, and she is the newest member of our family. Isn't she a-doggone-dorable? I had forgotten how much I love the pitter patter of little critter feet following me around. I guess I had also forgotten how destructive these little ones can be (she's discovered paper - I hope my considerable stash can survive!)...but all in all, she's a heart-stealer. Look for a "Puppy Love" layout coming soon! :)
