Well, it is a day after my Crop for Kids class, where we all created a Memory Journal from inter-office envelopes. It was an exciting experience and I received some wonderful feedback from my class. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching the class and having all the ladies join the fun. They were very responsive and I want to extend a huge thank you, to all of you ladies, that took my class. I also want to extend a gracious thank you to my t.a's, Kelly F. and Pat O. - their assistance was an asset. I had an excellent time.
that if someone wants to see something, there are more out there that would like to as well. Its like asking a question, you feel silly sometimes asking the question, but more oft than not there are others who want to know the answer to that very same question. So, i had a request for some ideas on clipboards....bringing the pages out of the album and onto the walls. A little reminder of those cherished on the walls when at work or when in need of a small break. These are two that i created, one from a make and take and one on my own. They hang on my wall at home so that i can look up when a small break is needed and cherish times past.
We received product in the store again...Hambly, disney, pet and travel...oh and fall papers too.
My favourite is the fall and hambly.
Fall is such a beautiful time the colours are so rich and so are the papers. While, Hambly is edgy and industrial. I love it all. What do you think? Take a closer look...
This is another great site, I like to use it for colour combinations in my scrapbooking.
You can definitely do a lot on this site for colouring. Check it out here:

We received more product again...this time from hero arts, heidi swapp and daisy d. Hero Arts have some great new winter and Christmas themed acrylics, along with their collage stamps and Heidi Swapp released the bling flowers and metallic rub ons. FInally, daisy d now has the stitch tape. It works like white out tape, and creates the look of sewing machine stitching. Check out the photos...

it has great photography lessons for the enthusiast and "an emotional appeal."
Although, the contest is open only to us residents (go figure), the ideas are great ones' to push you out of your own photo taking perspective and into a different one. try it and see...
We received product at the store again. The chipboard is a great thing, with shapes and fonts from basic grey.
Mellow seems to be my favourite and the obscure line can definitely push the limits.
However, i have to say that the cosmo cricket biography album is a great idea! This suitcase opens up to reveal a shadow box on one side and an 8*8 album on the other side.
Check it out!!
