So, either he'll get used to having a puppy around, or we're going to be in BIG trouble! But, who could resist this cute face?

One of my favorite things was this decal...Stampin' Up! Island Girl. Isn't it cool?
It works like our Decor Elements. I put it on the back window of my CR-V. We'll see if Ed thinks it's cool when he gets home from work. LOL. He might not want to drive a car that says Island Girl on it. :)
Happy Friday everyone! It's going to be a gaw-jus weekend...so get out and enjoy the weather!
Thanks for stopping by!

This is the layout that we did Monday night with my Scrapbook Club. Isn't it great? I love the Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper, Raspberry Tart. It's nice and bright and great for summer pictures. This is my daughter Emily with Eva the dolphin. We did the Dolphin Quest (http://www.dolphinquest.org/) while we were in Hawaii last month. Emily said it was her favorite part of the trip. The flowers on the bottom right of the page were made using the Big Shot Machine (LOVE that thing!) and the Flower Layers with Leaf Die Cut. In the center is one of the most fun product ever...the Build A Brad. By using a 1/2" circle punch, you can customize your brads to match any project. Simply punch out with the circle punch, use a glue dot to adhere to the center of the brad, and lay the self adhesive clear pebble over the brad. Viola!
Here is the rest of the lay out....
My scrapbook club meets the 3rd Monday evening of each month. If you ever want to join us, drop me an email a few days in advance!
Thanks for stopping in today...

So today was mostly spend getting everything ready for the Spring Stamp A Stack tomorrow. We have these twice a year. It's a full day of stamping, and it's a lot of fun...but it takes weeks of prep. Now, I am not complaining mind you...it's just that I have been less than organized lately. It looks like a bomb went off in my stamp room. And honestly, I am pretty much a "fly by the seat of my pants" kinda girl. Just to give you an idea, I had to overnight ribbon and paper that I forgot to order...and it showed up last night. So, today was spent making sure everything is as it should be for the big day. Now, if you are coming tomorrow, and you are missing something in your bag...I am sure it will be because I was cramming up until the 11th hour. But don't worry...between me, Kim and Judy, we've got extras and should have all the bases covered. Thank GOD for the wonderful ladies on my team!
So, here is a card that I just love. It's using the new stamp set Flower Fancy. It's such a simple design, but I think that is what I love best about it. I am drawn to simple, clean designs without too much fuss.
I think I just love the color combo of Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip (can you tell...? My blog is in those colors, too). I do hate to see the end of the SU year because we have to say goodbye to these wonderful In-Colors (Baja Breeze is one) that we have come to love over the year. New ones will replace them in the new catty...but I tend to get attached (yes, I know...I have issues).
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stoping by! Hope to see many of you at the Stamp A Stack tomorrow!
