When I started this blog I knew it wouldn't just be for cards.  I do a little bit of everything sewing, cards, scrapbooking, cooking, etc.  My daughter has her first cheer competition on Monday and she has a couple of new girls on her squad.  She reminded me that I needed to make the new girls a bag.  So this was my weekend project.  I finally finished it on Sunday.  The girls really love their bags.  It's big enough to shove all their competition stuff in and extras.  Okay, I'm tired and I'll blog with you later.  Have a great week.  :O)  Peace
I had a very productive weekend.  It was my son's last soccer game, even though he hasn't played since his broken toe.  So Friday night I whipped up these little thank you gifts.  They turned out really nice.  Thank you Fran for the idea.  She made me a really cute Halloween one.  I was going to take it apart to get the measurments, but I figured it out without dismantling it.  :o)

I didn't stay all day for scrapbooking last Sunday, because a friend of mine offered me a ticket to see Areosmith.  Yes, I went.  It was great concert and we had a lot of fun.
These are the cards that we made last Sunday and KoolauKroppers scrapbooking.  We meet the 3rd Sunday every month over at Olamana Golf Course and hang out there all day working on scrapbooking pages or finishing up projects that we have started and yet to finish.  We did a shoebox card swap and these are the cards that we made.  The first one is mine and I'm also using it for my October OCS to Vina.  The daisy is from Fran, the purple one is from Sue and the rose one if from Melody.  We had a great time making these easy cards.

Okay, let me tell you my son LOVES popcorn.  I don't know why.  We used to do the micorwave popcorn, but then it started to smell nasty or atleast to me it did.  So, now I've started making it old school way.  Yes, oil in the pot, pour in the popcorn and shake.  Then you melt the butter and pour it over the popcorn, add your salt or in this case fufukaki & mochi crunch.  Plop yourself down on the couch to watch movies.  Yummy!

I found these pictures of a card that I made and I thought it neat.  I saw it on CropStop and thought I'd give it a try.  It is a really simple card and I love how it's "out of the box".  Not your everyday card.  I think this went to my first OCS that Teri orgainizes.  Blog with you laters.  :o)

I haven't always been a card marker.  I started out in crafts doing scrapbooking.  I love scrapbooking!  I have a friend who came to visit me in when I had my 2nd daughter and left me all the paperwork to have a class and maybe be come a consultant.  That was 11 years ago.  I got out of scrapbooking for a long time. So that has put me many years behind.  These are pictures of my kids.  The baby in these pictures is now 7.  I really have to start craking down and get these albums up to date.  The oldest will graduate in another 2 years!  Yikes, where does the time go?  I thought I'd have plenty of time to get things done.  I have tons of pictures but not enough time.  It takes me just as long to do a page that it takes me to do card.  How sad is that. :o( 

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments.  I really appreciate all your kind words.  Have a great week and I'll blog at you later.
Well, I haven't sent Jan her cut outs yet, but I did do something really nice.  I made her some cards that she could use when she needed a card.  I've been trying to talk her into taking one of those wonderful classes that Archivers offers all the time.  I told her I was going to sign her up for one and then she'll have to go.  She needs some relax time.  I think she'll love these.  They will all be going out this week and special treat for Emily at Archivers.  I think she'll love some Mac Nuts.  I know I would.  OMG!  The new Hero Arts clings have come out.  I guess I'll be giving her a call real soon.  :O)

My daughter has been wanting to get her hands on my icopic pens for the past month.  My husband brought them back from his trip to Japan.  Yes, those were on my wish list.  :o)  I told her she could use them only if she researched online on the proper way to use them.  She went to YouTube and did her research.  She sat down,drew a picture, proceeded to get out the markers and color away.  This is her first attempt with the pens.  She did a great job!  Now, I may never get my pens back!

Feeling Witchy

I've never made a Halloween card before, but I remembered that I had bought a Halloween Bella.  So I got her out and this is what I came up with.  She turned out cute.  I'm sending it to Emily at Archivers.  She helped me get some new craft items this weekend.  :O)

OCS cards

Here are some of the cards that I have received during the OCS with Teri.  The Hello Kitty is from Denise, the pink Halo Halo is from JackieLou, and the last one is from Ilissa. 
I have some more cards to share.  The black one w/the butterfly is from Vina, the woodlands is from Mary Bennett, and the acrylic is from Grace.

And, last but not least the shaker box is from Cyndi and the Ketto is from Shirley.  I just want to say "I loved all my cards".  They are so different and give you lots of ideas how make other cards.  I can't wait to get paired up for the October swap.  :o)  Talk to you soon.  Sherri

Danrie's Backpack

This is Danrie.  She wanted to enter a "draw your own backpack" sponsored by Sharpie.  We bought the backpack and some markers and she went to town.  She did a great job!  We have to wait until 10/18 to start voting.  As soon as I find out more info I'll post it then we can vote for her.  If you win they will produce your backpack next year and sell it in the stores.  I think it's Office Depot.  She's excited.

Here's the flip album that I made for a little boy.  It was for one of my husband's co-workers.  I used the Cuttlekids dies.  They are really cute.


Just a little note to say "Sissy" didn't get choosen to sprout.  I"m going to change a few things and she still may come to life.  :O)  I'll be posting (2) more flip books later today, and I also wanted to share all the beautiful cards that I've received during the card swap that I participate in with Teri.  I'll post a couple a day with the names of who made them and I'll post their websites if they have one.  Be happy it's Thursday and just one more day till FRIDAY!!  Aloha
