I'm a SU! Grandma.....WHOOOO HOOOOO!!

Let me start by saying that life is good.

My kids are healthy, doing well in school and usually play well with each other and their friends.

My husband is doing well professionally but has a bit of a cold, but otherwise doing well.

The dogs are still hanging. Max is still fat---those thyroid pills aren't really showing signs of working. Dakota still has that huge bump on her hip and has finished her rounds of meds, so it's back to the vet with her. The Blue Jackets are still on the road to the Playoffs. It's been an exciting season and I've enjoyed being a part of it all fall and winter long.

And on the Stampin' Up! side of life, life is good too! I'm so excited with the response to the latest recruiting promo. Since Chris joined my team, Beth D has also signed up and already has her demo number. I also have one other lady who sent in her paperwork last week and I'm just waiting for SU! to open for the day and get her processed! Once Raquel's paperwork goes through, I'll have 4 demos in my first line. Remember when I said that Chris was having an amazing response? Well, she has already begun building her team and has had two wonderful women join our group!

Chris and I have been discussing plans for this summer getting booths at some of the festivals around town. Theresa is in charge of her community street fest in Sept., so I'll have a booth for that also.

I'm so excited to see where this new development takes me. I am so thankful that I finally stopped trying to determine where God wants me to go. I hope that I realize the opportunities that he puts in my path and go where He'd like me to go.

Layouts for Scramp a Stack

Yep, Mitch had my USB cord.

Ok, for the layouts.
This is one of the double layouts offered. The swirl from Baroque Motifs was embossed with clear embossing powder to create dimension and interest at the top. The Pretties flower can be colored to add interest to the top also.

Next is one side of another double-page layout offered. This one is much more involved. There is stamping, using the Big Shot and SU! Top Note Die, punches and Designer Series Paper.

This the other side of the layout. It uses more stamping, the SU! Scallop Edge Envelope Die and the Big Shot. Punches and DSP too.

I will have enough supplies for 4 more people. Let me know if you are interested. Bring your adhesive.

Welcome to my team!

I am very pleased to welcome my newest team member, Cris B! The 15% deal on the Starter kit was too good of a deal to pass up for her. The 3 month payment option was the cherry on top!

I am so excited to work with her as she begins to build her business!

GRRRRR......can't upload pictures

It is so frustrating when I have some time to sit down and download my pictures....but I can't because I can't find my USB cord. This always seems to happen when Mitch is out of town....hmmmm. Ok, no problem. Found the disk reader. Put it in and computer wouldn't work. Black screen. Not pretty and I'm not sure I'll try it again any time soon.

So here's a run-down of all the projects I've worked on this past month:

New catalog kick-off party, two cards and some sour cream containers.

Kid's Valentine workshop; a pencil topper, a nugget tent, a card using the Top Note Die and a cute cover for small bags of candy. All very cute.

Typed up project directions and bagged cardstock for three different classes for 13 people for the overnight retreat.

A few projects using the Big Shot during the retreat.

4 different double-page spreads getting ready for my Scramp a Stack of Layouts class at the end of this month.

Typed up, printed and made up 4 books for the marker club members.

Typed up and printed direction sheets for this month's technique class.

Thank-you cards using the Rasberry Tart DSP and Elegant Thank you stamp during PMS Night.

Did up and mailed a swap for the Big shot. Will have an example of every die available in the IB&C.
Working on two other swaps for the Big Shot. Same type as above. Elbow is hurting a bit and needed to switch arms. Not as efficient with the left arm as the right.

It's just stressing me out not being able to download these pictures. GRRRRRR.
