And don't forget you don't have to use these exact Stampin' Up colors or products just use the same shades like I did! And if you are in need of some Stampin' Up supplies make sure to check out the fab deals and place your order with Samantha!

And next on my list of great things that happened yesterday is I have been asked to design for a new color combo challenge blog! It is a new venture for the Scrapmaster's Paradise, she has started a new forum as well as a color challenge blog in addition to the regular blog! Every Monday there will be a color combo posted and you can create a card, layout, 3D or altered item using the colors posted. Now she is a Stampin' Up demonstrator and has also started some super AWESOME Stampin' Up monthly kits that you can purchase as well, so the colors listed are Stampin' Up colors-but you do NOT have to use any Stampin' Up products at all on these challenges! So head on over here today and come play along! And if you are in the market for some great Stampin' Up products be sure to contact Samantha and she will take care of your needs! I hope to "see" everyone come join me there!
And my final piece of EXCITING news is a couple weeks ago I got an e-mail from EK Success looking for people who would like to become certified class instructors so I filled out the form thinking you never know-it can't hurt to try! Well guess what?! YUP! I was selected to become a certified class instructor for them!!! I have been assigned to a Michael's location and I am half way done with my certification! I am SOOO EXCITED!! This is going to be a 2 hour class once a week for 4 weeks, and the training I have completed so far is really packed with LOTS of great information! I CAN'T wait to finish the training and get started on my first class-the ideas are just flowing with how much fun I can make this class! And another cool thing is each week at least one EK Success tool will be highlighted and you will be taught the proper way to use it! How cool is that? How many times have you bought a new tool that has little or no directions with it and you are left scratching your head wondering how to use it? I know I have! So as soon as I have more info I will share I know you will ALL want to take this class!
Well after this weekend that felt like it was NEVER going to end I am planning on getting some LONG OVERDUE scrapping in today! So hopefully I can get my chores done quickly and get some LONG OVERDUE play time in!! : ) I can't believe I ever survived this weekend-Friday shopping and dinner with friends; Saturday T-Ball, (which got rained out in the bottom of the 1st inning) birthday party, work for me, and then I was suppose to go out for my future SIL's b-day after work, but I had to work late and was too tired then to go out (Sorry Stacey!); Sunday was a Baptism for a friend's baby, home to eat a QUICK sandwich and then to my grandparent's house for a BIG family gathering to meet a relative in from California, and then FINALLY off to my friend's house for her son's birthday party! YIKES!!! No wonder I spent the day on the couch with a BAD headache yesterday!
Well off to the rat race of today!

Next up is my EXCITING news!!! I have 3 layouts published in the June issue of Scrapbooking.com!!!! It is SO EXCITING to see your work published! And its even cooler to look at the bottom of your article and see multiple links to your past articles! I feel famous! LOL!!
OK on to other and better things! I spent this past weekend up north with my parents and Np trip up north is complete without at trip to Hannah's!!! I have been in COMPLETE Hannah's withdrawal as I have not been able to make a trip up since October! I must say my trip did not disappoint either! I used their FABULOUS 40% off My Mind's Eye coupon and got LOTS of new My Mind's Eye goodies! I picked Quite Contrary, So Sophie and lill Robots! So I CAN'T wait to get into my scrap space and just create! I also picked some of the new Jill Bean Soup paper and I FINALLY was able to get some Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety! I also found in their .99 table Studio G glitter glue so I picked up some of those as well to see how they compare to Stickles! I may need to get some more! It was SO nice to go and have such a BIG selection of papers and embellies-OH and speaking of embellies I picked up some new Prima flowers to play with as well!
Well I am off to get some errands and chores done hopefully with enough time left to play with my new toys! ; )

The boy's had their last day of school, class picnic and graduation this week! Today we have a birthday party, and the rest of the weekend is still up for grabs with what we are going to do! But any who here are a couple pics from the school stuff!
Here is the first day of school-they look SO little!
And here is the last day of school!Here they are signing the ABC's in their closing programThe boys and Ms. LisaThe boys and Ms CharleneMy Preschool graduates!And the funny thing is Nicholas is already talking about getting his backpack for Kindergarten and hoping that they put his name up on a hook for him!
Here are my cards for Paper Popsicles last week! The first is made the the pets digital image which can be found right here! I used some of the new Basic Grey Max and Whiskers paper, Bazzill cardstock, Cosmo Cricket letters and I colored the images with my Copic markers!
Next up I got to work with the elephant shaped card. I knew I needed to use Cordinations whitewash cardstock for this guy! The cardstock just reminds me of the skin of an elephant! I used my favorite Basic Grey sanding tools to sand the edges of the BIG guy and make his toenails, and do you know where his ear came from??? Well its the pieces of paper that was cut away from under his trunk and above his leg! To finish the look I added a wiggly eye and I used the reverse side of the cardstock and cut a tusk for him as well! He was SO quick and easy to do! And you can get yours right here! I have worked with this card before, so make sure to check out this post here to get some more fun ideas for this card!Next up is my card for Paper Popsicles this week! I used this sketch and created a thank you card for the boys to give to their teachers.
Here is my card it is made with a combo of Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon products.And here is the present I made for their teachers to coordinate with the card. I bought this cute box with a chalkboard looking top at Michaels and used Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon papers to cover the box and then I used the October Afternoon stickers to embellish the box with. I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the box; but on the top of the cover I wrote a saying about teachers, and I filled the box with Hershey Hugs and Kisses and added a Starbucks gift certificate and a little book of inspirational sayings for teachers! I just thought it was SO cute to give a box of Hugs and Kisses! I hope they like these!
Well be sure to head on over to Paper Popsicles and play along with us, as well as check back on Wednesday for some more fun stuff! Also did you know Paper Popsicles now has a facebook page!? Be sure to find them and become a follower today!

Here is Joseph in the Pitcher position, and well he was doing it at his own pace and at one point that stinker picked up dirt and pitched dirt!
Here is Nicholas at the end of the game-he played right field the last inning and he was all ready to be part of the action.Well there was NO action for him! He was patient at first waiting and waiting, but eventually when the ball was hit and not coming in that direction he would pout, stomp his feet, cross his arms,"humph!", and finally turned around in disgust. Poor guy he just wanted to be in on the action!

I just LOVE the way this card turned out! The cardstock is Coordinations, pattern paper My Mind's Eye, the packaging card from the Prima flowers, Prima flowers and leaves-which I used Alcohol ink on to tint with some brown, Maya Road lace and the sentimanet is from My Mind's Eye.
Next is this fun tag I made using the cardboard packaging I saved, I inked that with Distress inks to bring out the colors in the pattern paper. The pattern paper is from Prima, and I cut the edges off of another Prima package to embellish with and I used Prima flowers and a leaf. The pom pom trim is Maya Road and of course Thickers!
Don't forget to play along this month at Paper Popsicles as the prize this month is a Martha Stewart Glitter multi pack!!! Check it out here!
