Crafting is in our blood, along with playing! But wait --- it's all play and we love it!

The boys went back home today and it leaves me with an actual physical pain, the ache of already missing them is so strong.  We had a great week!  We went to New Salem, our Children's Museum, the zoo, the park, the barbershop, church, played pirates, dug holes in the back of the yard, went swimming, had picnic lunches in the back yard, played trains, crafted, crafted and crafted, watched movies, played hide and seek, visited the boys' great grandparents, and had a lot of laughs together.  They even had some silly time with my little button box hat:)  They actually cried, grinched and complained (as we packed up today) because they did not want their visit to be over.  That didn't help my aching heart too much!

This week, I will be back in my studio and will be creating some great, new projects to share with you.  Check back soon and thanks for stopping by my blog!

I can't wait to scrapbook these!

After a trip to Papa's barbershop, we enjoyed a trip to the park.  I know, with all our recent trips and fun at our house, that I'll have lots of great scrapbooking ideas coming up very soon!

A Day at the Zoo

We enjoyed a day at our Scovill Zoo and then fun at the playground there.  The boys really enjoyed it all!

Benjamin really wants a pet goat now.  Do you think his parents will be surprised when he shows up with a goat?

Beyond the Garden

Here's a bright layout with Beyond the Garden DSP.  I love the bright colors.  This would be a great way to use up scraps, too.  This is a great time to stock up on extra DSP, too.  Until the end of August, you can buy 3 packages of DSP and get another one FREE.  Time's almost up, though, so hurry and place your order.  With my free ribbon special going on during the same time, this is a GREAT time to place your orders and enjoy more product!
Notice the varying sizes of flowers in this layout?  I designed them on My Digital Studio so I could have the sizes I needed for this layout.  I used the coordinating stamp set for the lower portion of the page.  The stamp set is Fabulous Florets.  When I design pieces for my projects on My Digital Studio, I print them on our Whisper White CS so I get the same good quality product for my projects and they print beautifully.  You can choose whatever size and color you'd like to use, so the possibilities are endless.

Another Vintage Layout

Here's a layout we did at our Hostess Scrapbook Club.  I went back and added some extra touches with the Beau Chateau Side Notes.  They're found on page 190 in the Idea Book and Catalog.  They're just $5.95 and can be used on cards, projects or scrapbook pages for a quick touch of elegance.  The papers are Beau Chateau, found on page 184 in the Idea Book and Catalog.  Our Hostess Scrapbook Club is going to make a series of layouts using these papers.  I love the colors and the way they all coordinate.  You can look forward to seeing more layout ideas with these beautiful papers.

How would you like some free ribbon!

How would you like some free ribbon --- like a yard of EACH of the new In Colors?  Place an order of $25. (before tax and shipping) with me and get a free ribbon sampler.  I must receive your orders (with payment) by the end of August for this special offer.  That will be your last opportunity to order from the summer mini catalog, as well.  Your order may be from either catalog or some from each!  If you place an order online through my website, that will count, too.  I will order the ribbon on August 31 and let you know as soon as it comes in and I get it measured and ready for you. 

Place an order of $50. or more (before tax and shipping) and receive 2 yards of each new In Color!!!
While we're at it, how about DOUBLE BINGO POINTS?!!!  For every $25. you order (at one time), your already were receiving one BINGO POINT, but from now until the end of August, you will earn DOUBLE BINGO POINTS!!!  You will use these points at my Christmas party in December.  We are going to play Bingo for some great prizes and have a lot of fun!!!

Here's a peek at the beautiful ruffled ribbon.  You will love it!

A Trip to New Salem / Family Time Fun

We have the pleasure of taking some time to enjoy the boys being here with us this week.  Today, it was such a nice day that we decided to take a trip --- to New Salem, Illinois.  Benjamin is still quite 'into' all things Lincoln (and, thus, Aaron is too, as he will try to do whatever Ben is doing:)  It was a busy day and they boys really enjoyed exploring New Salem.
