May's Workshop On The Go - Bella

This is the kit of the month class I will be offering for May. We will be completing this layout and two others in three hours, on evening in May. All you have to do when we are finished is place your pictures on the pages. In addition you will have enough left over supplies to complete 3 cards that come with the instructions and other projects you chose to do. Contact me if you are interested in attending or would like me to put together this kit to send out to you wherever you may be.

This was my January Club layouts. I haven't figured out how to turn my pictures, or remove them so I can try again, so your getting a sideways pic at the top. :)

Birthday Card

And here is the card I made to coordinate with the acrylic album, as well as a picture of the products used to create the album. Just a hint for those who are new to acrylic albums - there is a layer of film on both sides of the acrylic pages. Be smarter than me - don't forget to take the film off all the pages! Most just isn't good enough. I had to redo two pages that I'd left the film on. Thankfully, it comes off cleanly!

I have to tell you that I wasn't so crazy about the Daydream paper pack, until I got my hands on it. May have to come up with a reason to get a second pack. At least I've started to conquer my fear of cutting into that first perfect piece of paper.... :)

My first artwork

Well it's about time to get some artwork posted on here, after all art is what this blog is all about. My first post is of an acrylic album that I scraplifted from another consultant a while back. Will have to more conscientious to give other artists credit. I cre8ed this album for Rylie's birthday pictures with a CTMH acrylic album, Daydream paper pack and stickease. Not all the pages are included in this post, but you get the idea. Enjoy!

WooHoo!! I figured it out - post one picture at a time, at least for now. Here is a picture of Rylie with her cake...

Okay, so I've had some problems tying to upload my pictures. I keep trying, but so much for the Monday post schedule...my first post and I'm already delayed. Better luck tomorrow!! :)

WOW, I can't believe I'm doing this...Blogging!?! One week ago, blogging was the furthest thing from my mind. Yes, just one week ago. This goes to show you what one week will do for someone who is on holidays.

This has been a busy and cre8ive week for me. Very little was accomplished in my scrapbooking/card making world, but here are some of the other things we did: enjoyed a fun Easter with our very first treasure hunt (this will be our new family tradition), I made my favorite cake and cupcakes yet for Rylie's birthday, hosted her birthday party on Monday, Tuesday was busy perusing magazines for Rylie's bedroom decorating ideas, Wednesday - painted, Thursday - cleaned up and straightened Rylie's Room, Friday - figured out how to redo the bathroom, and Darren painted while I went on to do my income tax (yuck). Whoa, what a run on sentence - sure hope Ms. Long doesn't read this.
What many people don't know about me is that I can make designing a room last for months (sometimes years even), so it is a huge event when it all comes together. I have a little shopping to do to finish of the rooms, but will post pictures when they are complete.
I thought for now I will share my pictures of the birthday cakes/cupcakes, and a few pics from the party.
So back to my blog. My main goal with this blog is to share my paper crafting adventures with a little family life thrown in. It is my intention to update my blog and display new artwork at least once per week, I will start with Monday's for now. This will be the place to look for information on upcoming events, new products, and more. I sure hope you enjoy!!!
I still can't believe I'm blogging...............
