Dream A Little

I don't remember the last time I used this old favorite combination of colors. When I first started using SU! products....I loved to use Perfect Plum and Pale Plum together and I love how this card came out. The best part is that this card took less than 5 minutes to make. My stamping friends enjoyed creating this simple card at my Open House this last Saturday. Stamp set: SU!'s new hostess level 2 Dream A Little. Colors: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Whisper White and Kraft.

Our 2nd Wedding Anniversary

Norman and I celebrated our 2nd Wedding Anniversary today at Lawry's. I'd show you the card Norm made for me but he got smart this year...he purchased a stamped card from my card rack and gave himself a discount. Would have been funny if we gave each other the same card.

Love You Much #7

A bouquet of love. Here's a fun project we made in my Love You Much class this last Saturday.

Holiday Get Together

The story begins with this picture. From left to right: Barbara, Karen, Stephanie, Charlotte, Darlet, Elaine, Teresa and Marcella.We all grew in South Pasadena and have we've known each other since elementary school. Once a year we bring our families together for a celebration. This year, Teresa, Derrick and Maddy hosted the get together in their new home in South Pasadena.

How we have grown over the years and this is truly one of my favorite times of the year when we get to visit, feast and watch the kids play.

bottom row from left to right: Kate, Ryan, Emma, Jason, Samantha
Trust me, we took a lot of pictures and this was the best one. Aren't they adorable?

Sweet Maddy waiting her turn.

Oh to love how he just enjoyed that cupcake.

Jason had his eyes on the cupcakes the minute we put them out.
