Tag You're It!

My friend Jen "tagged" me earlier this week. To play along, go to where you store your photos on your computer- go to the sixth folder and post the sixth picture in that folder. Then tag six of your friends to play along. This picture is from the summer of 2007 when my mom and I went to Ohio/Kentucky to visit family.

I figured I would share a couple of more pictures from that trip- the middle picture is of my mom, my grandpa, and me. The last picture is of a gazebo on the Ohio River behind a restaurant we had dinner at.

Riverside Stamp Convention

Five of us from Vegas went to California for a stamp convention in Riverside, we arrived home around 10pm last night. It was a quick and easy trip and we had a lot of fun. We stayed with our friend Ching who lives in San Bernardino, she and her husband Ron took very good care of us during our stay. Unfortunately, our friend Claudia was unable to go with us, her husband Bob has been in the hospital. We wish him a speedy recovery! I wanted to share with you a stamp set that I bought from Prickley Pear. I loved the owls in this set and I thought the birds were nice too.

Have a Purrfect Day!

Well, it seems like it has been forever since I have posted. We have had a lot going on the last two weeks. Paul's mom was in town visiting for a week from Minnesota. We did the tourist thing and went down to the strip a couple of times and went out to Red Rock.

A couple of us from work put together a card exchange club, we had our first get together this month. Out of the 12 members, 8 of us work for the school district. I think this group will have a lot of fun together!

The butterfly card above is the card we made at Claudia's last night using TAC products, I love the purple and gold combination. I am really looking forward to this next weekend, a few of us from Vegas are going to Riverside, CA for a paper crafts convention. We are staying the night with a friend who lives in San Bernardino. I am looking forward to all of the shopping and girl time, it is going to be so much fun!!!

Happy New Year 2009!

2009 is officially here! I kept with my typical New Year's Eve tradition of falling asleep around 10pm. Next year I think I will have a party, so that way I have to stay awake! Yesterday I decided to straighten my stamp room, it was not that messy but I did need to reorganize. Once I was done, I made these cards. I love Fluffles. I rarely use markers on my cards, I usually use colored pencils, I think I will use markers more often now. The second card I made using a stamp that one of my stamping friends in Arizona gave me for Christmas, I love this stamp!
