Well it's been some time since I posted. This summer has just flown by ... I'm not quite sure where it went. I did have a "staycation" with some girlfriends in July. Usually we go out of town, but this year, in this tight economic times, we decided to stay in town. A friend was kind of enough to lend us her home for 4 days since her husband was going to be out of town. There were 10 of us who participated. We ate a lot, swam, and of course did our crafts!!! Everyone actually got a lot done in those 4 days! Joy designed and partially completed her Christmas cards. Christmas in July!! Crystal scrapbooked almost her entire vacation with her husband. Stephanie, Kim and Patti designed and made a ton of cards! Lori and Becky got a lot of scrapbook layouts done. Kimlee, Julie, Suzanne, and myself did a lot of "projects." Some scrapbooking, cards, altered items, explosion books, etc. I ended up making 2 mini albums for my cousins that turned out adorable! Unfortunately, I did not take pictures of those before I gave them as gifts. I will work on getting pics though to post because they turned out great! I also made some cards for my Aunt: a set of 12 cards for various occasions - thank you, birthday, thinking of you, etc. I DID get pictures of those so please see the pictures above. I used the CTMH Moon Doggie paper (so pretty!) and a CTMH stamp set called "Extreme Happiness".
