Witches Hat Treat Box

The box we made at Kathy's Demonstrator's Hostess Club

Here's my version...based on the stamps I had available to me. I used SU!'s Just Jawing and some silver chunky glitter to create this fun look.

Razzle Dazzle

Getting back into the groove of stampin' fun! Here's a card I shared at my last hostess club. The stamp set is Stampin' Up!'s Razzle Dazzle on page 94 of the Idea Book and Catalog. The dry embossed Bashful Blue cardstock was created by using SU!'s Texturz Plates Background 1. Love the new In Color Soft Suede...especially because the cardstock coordinates with the ink and polka dot ribbon. Color combo: Bashful Blue, Soft Suede, Whisper White.

Hello from Leilani

Just wanted to share that Leilani says hello to her stampin' friends. I received this card from her not too long ago. She is doing well and is still busy with work and wedding coordinating. An oldie but a goodie....this card is so cute! Perfect for summer.

Hand model: Norman (hahaha!)

@ home

I haven't stamped or scrapbooked in about 7 weeks...getting back into the swing of things. Here's the first completed spread with my family photos. Looks so simple but it took awhile to pull together.

Stampin' Up! Build-A-Bear and Landon

I wonder what Landon is dreaming of...every once in awhile, we'll catch him smiling in his sleep.

My friend Ann got us a Stampin' Up! Build-A-Bear from convention. Thanks for the birthday gift Ann!!! We love cute bears. Not so sure if Landon was exactly thrilled he was being propped with bears. I think he likes to be the star. Hahaha!

Weekend update

I can hardly believe that Landon is already 4 weeks old. It has gone by super fast. He's definitely been a good baby....great eater, great digestive system and a wonderful sleeper. We enjoy playing a little bit...he's alert and is able to look around. So cool!

19 days old

We decided to try putting Landon in the bouncy chair...he's a fan!
4 weeks old.

Yesterday, I went out with my girlfriends and had lunch at La Grande Orange in Pasadena. Darlet came down from Orinda and joined us! Great timing! It had been awhile since so many of us were able to get together. We missed you Karen. We hadn't seen each other as a group in a few months and it was very nice to catch up. Boy, did I enjoy my ahi tuna burger. I missed having that oh-so yummy burger. Just delicious.




Today, my cousins from San Francisco came for a visit. It was great to see them and we had a great time. We enjoyed our time over dim sum from parents came to see them too! They are now on their way to Disneyland where they will spend a few days with Mickey Mouse.

Family and friends are the best. We are so lucky.

Is he really the father of my son? Look at that hair!
