Thanks to all




Thanks for all your help picking cards, I was at a stampers
stump. I decided with your suggestions to go with the butterfly one, and I will give them options of using lots of thoughts and they can make the card what they want.
Here is a picture of my hostess gift, it uses a retired doodle set and one of my favorite designer papers that also retired au chocolate. What stamper does not like chocolate? I saw the box first from my friend Joanne Basile. It is actually a pretty easy box to make you can find the directions on the blog running with scissors (lol , great name):http://leslierich.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2007/07/30/ruby-tuesday-stellas-tote-n-tutorial/.
Yesterday I did a birthday party for 11 nine year old girls. They decorated their party bags with stamps and then covered our 5 x 5 chipboard journals and made scrapbooks using our simply scrappin kits. I was so pleased they had to be dragged to get pizza and cake. Then they all went back after to finish. They were well behaved, quiet and so creative. I love hooking them so young to be life long scrappers. Of course, I am way behind myself. I am still doing Halloween from October.
