Birthday Card

Just thought I would post a birthday card I made for our nephew who is turning 2 next week. I thought it turned out so cute!

I made it using Cricut Design Studio - here is a link to the blog where I found the file:

Two New Archiver's Dies

I was lucky enough to find the new hippo and giraffe dies at Archiver's today. I made these magnets, which are now available in my etsy store:

As Long as I was At It

I thought I'd post a layout I made today from our trip.

The date stamp in the bottom right corner was made by a member of Willow Traders named Tara.

It is GREAT!!

New Stampin Up Card and a Quote

Here's a card I made from a new set of Stampin Up Stamps - it is from the set Friendship Blooms, a Sale A Bration set.

Here's a quote from a Stampin Up Stamp that I thought was funny:

If at first you do succeed, try not to look astonished!

Happy 90th Birthday and Other Things

Hi again,

Today is my Grandma's 90th birthday. Wow, I can't believe it. We are going out to lunch to celebrate and then hopefully Andrew will be able to have an Easter Egg Hunt at her house.

He's so good when he has to deal with all adults as he often does at family parties here.

Here's a page I made using the Zany Zinnia( )March Kit Spring Break.

Can't believe it's been 20 years since I graduated high school. But, Kathy and I have remained friends through it ALL. Husbands, kids, a different husband...

Yipee, Spring Break

You can't really understand how much you need spring break unless you're a teacher. It's a great time of year! But if there was no spring break...well who knows what could happen!

Here's a page I did of my new niece!

Also, I have these cute new penguin magnets up for sale in my etsy store. Check them out!

Here's the link to my etsy store.

I Have a New Niece!

My sister had a baby yesterday morning. Her name is Kathryn! I'm so luck to be an aunt to now three great kids! The older two (Ross and Emily) seem to be excited about the baby. I wish I could be there, but they live so far away!!

By the way, Happy Easter everyone! I am so lucky to be starting spring break tomorrow. We are going to have a great time with days off and visiting my friend Carolyn and her family in Tennessee.

So, I wanted to share with you Andrew's plan for our scrapbook store. He says that we should have our store in our basement. He has a plan for everyone in our family. I would check people out, he would call places to order more scrapbook stuff, and Mark - well - he would be the janitor. Nice, huh?? It's nice that he wanted to include everyone. He even says that he would let kids play with some of his toys while their mom's shopped. Hee Hee.

It's a Great Day in Illinois!

Hi there, it's a great day here in Illinois today. Okay, really it's a little overcast and kind of rainy, but my Illini won last night to make it one step closer to winning the Big Ten Tournament. I have to admit, I didn't have too high of hopes this year, as they haven't played well all year. But, maybe things are coming together!

I have Andrew all excited about it too! He says he would like to go to Illini College when he gets old enough. If he only knew how excited and happy that would make me and his Grandpa too.

So, finally I have time to scrapbook today. Hope to get a couple of pages or at least a card or two done. I'll post later if I have something to show for my efforts today.

Phew, what a Day!

Just got home from the annual Children's Carnival at the school where I work. It is a fun time, but exhausting too. We invited kindergarten and first graders from the school where my son attends. He had a GREAT time. I can't believe that I didn't take ANY pictures. Oh well, it's hard to take pictures and work at the same time.

All the same, here's a page I did recently.
