My Big News!

So, I've been saying that I have something I've been working on for a while. Well, I finally got everything in order and up and running with a LOT of help from my friend, Stephanie, who designed my new look! She is amazing... Thanks so much, Stephanie!

Some of you, my readers, may already know that I used to design page kits for the Scrapbook Store. Well as of recently, I decided to give that up, and dum-da-da-dum.....

Introducing, The Fuzzy Caterpillar, my new ETSY shop! Featuring 12x12 page kits!!! I'm so excited about this and hope to keep expanding!!!

So, be sure to check it out as soon as you can and spread the word! Here are a couple of peaks:

Oh, and to honor the opening of the Fuzzy Caterpillar, if you leave a comment below, I will be announcing a random winner on Friday Morning, giving away 2 kits of your choice from my shop!

A little Inspiration!

The weekend before last I went to Watertown once again for a scrapbook weekend. I mainly worked on pages for an upcoming class I will be teaching at the Scrapbook Store. I would give you a peak, but I can't because I am using a new line from Bella Blvd that will not be revealed until CHA Summer in late July. However, if you'd like to get a peak, the Scrapbook Store is having it's 3rd quarter class kickoff this Thursday (the 24th) from 6-7:30pm. The class will be out for viewing then and only then and will have to be put away after until August 4th when the class will take place. If you sign up for any classes that night, you will receive a 10% discount! The new Bella lines are Fantastic, as usual!

Anywho, here are a couple other layouts I can share with you...

This first layout is of little Cecilia in front of our (Paul's) rose bushes. I used the Delovely line for this layout...love it!

For this layout I used the new Echo Park line. I bought the whole kit and some extras because I just loved all the colors! This is a pic of two of my little daycare girls, Samantha and Hailey. They love picking the flowers!

I feel like I'm getting soooo old.
My baby girl just got engaged this morning!! I can't believe how the time flies by. It seems like just yesterday that she was flying into the house yelling "I'm going to prom with him!!" That was 4 years ago already. I can only imagine how fast the next two years are going to go. They're planning on Spring/Summer 2012.
Congratulations Jose and Alyssa. We couldn't be any happier!!!!
The happy couple:
The beautiful ring!
On a different note, I'm going to Watertown this weekend to scrapbook with the girls, so check back next week to view my accomplishments...I'm planning on getting a lot done. But, then again, that's always the plan, isn't it???

New Stuff...Can't Wait!!!!!

Ok, so last night Stephanie (from Bella Blvd) called me because she had a TON of work to get done and didn't want to be alone at the studio. Since I had no scrapbooking projects prepared, I agreed to come and keep her company and work on a few things I needed to get done on the computer while she plugged away on the new collections for the CHA summer release. So, I decided to take a break from trying to write a tutorial for a very cool project for the Bella blog. Yeah, that didn't happen...for the life of me I just couldn't figure it out. So, no tutorial...oh well! Anyway, I'm sure after the first hour of my being at Bella, she was regretting my being there. I was a little chatty and a little needy, and a little (a lot) amazed at all the new collections!!!! If it's at all possible, these are some of the BEST collections yet!!!!! Stephanie just never disappoints, in fact, I don't think she's capable of disappointing. Just look at the little busy bee...hard at work! While I was taking a few pictures of the tutorial-not-to be, I decided to to snap a few pics of one of my favorite people.......

Oh hey, if you get a chance, pop on over to the Creative Charms site. My friend, Gail, is featured there today!!!! She rocks the cards!! Be sure and leave her some love!! Thanks for stopping by!
