Saturday I woke up at 5:30 and set sail for Tulsa! Which was not easy since Sara had been in a ball tournament the night before and we didn't get in bed till after midnight. Friend Holly made the trip with me and we had such a nice time...girl talk, coffee, Pei Wei, a trip to the Apple Store in the mall :) It was all fun!
The Inspired By Scraps class moved along at such a nice pace and I really enjoyed all of the ladies so much! Had several back from times past and met some new friends too! (THANKS Y'ALL!! :) I really enjoyed teaching these projects.
This is a peek at one of the layout projects. I designed a printable sheet of doodles, titles and accents for this class (the YOU and the R and Family you see here are part). And then there was the tag book--I can't wait to get photos in mine. I really love it!
There's also a bonus project (a 12 x 12 layout) that is fun! I have extra kits this time--so let me know if you'd like more info.
In other news, Cash has THREE teeth now!! Yup! And he is sitting up! Everything is just happening so fast...these past six months have absolutely flown by. Can't believe he is a HALF.
This weekend all the sb gurus are in Chicago for the big summer tradeshow- CHA. Gosh, this is the first one I've missed in about four years I guess. It kind of feels strange...not being in the middle of all the industry happenings. But its also really nice not to have to make all those preparations for the family and worry about leaving/being gone. Cash has only been with a sitter about three times, so I'm pretty hesitant about traveling any more.
Been busy trying to keep the house clean for showing/selling. We have a couple of prospective buyers, so there's some hope. I am just tired of being in limbo I suppose. I so look forward to the possibility of the new home we would like to buy...with its big towering oaks and massive lawn! Where the girls can run and scream and be loud and crazy. We would have a place for Sara to play ball and practice batting. The house has this long hallway that is tiled, I can just picture Cash in a year or so running up and down it on a little scooter to the room that we have picked out for him. So many possibilites, such a great place to raise our family. I just pray that it works out if its suppose to.
Oh- this post is getting LONG but I wanted to share some SNEAKS of some CLOUD 9 DESIGNS new product releases at CHA. I did some samples for the Fiskars booth with their stuff. Its a fun and whimsical look and I just adore all their cute chipboard accents --here's a countdown calendar I did on a clipboard:
Here are a few layouts--
One more thing...if you've been looking for the Fanciful collection...you might want to check THIS out! ;0
Here's to a blessed week for everybody. Take care!
