A contest, two projects, and the scrapping of three friends.

The time is 9:05am and I've been a wake since 6am doing some work.

I've been busy getting things ready for CHA on my end. It's been even busier for everyone in London!!! They have been working very hard over there and just shipped a lot of the booth items "to America!". LOL

I'm in Elk Grove the next couple of days creating and picking up items from my leads in this area. Had so much fun creating with two of my favorite girls...Tricia Wilson and Gina Lideros!! I have so much fun when I'm with them!!!! We laugh, we chat, we eat!!! Love these girls so much!!!

Here are two layouts that I made using some of my favorite WOW colors!
This first one is using :Whirlypop & Ebony embossing powders. I used the new templates by Crafters Workshop. Paper & stickers are by Echo Park. I used Helmars liquid adhesive and the rest of the adhesives were by Therm-o-web.

This next one is one that I created is using bright white, Neurtral Ultra Shimmer, Clear Ultra High, and Angel Wings. I used more templates by Crafters Workshop. Papers & stickers are by Echo Park. I used Helmars, Thermo-o-web, and Sakura. The Sprays are by Clearsnap.
I'm excited about my Christmas stamps for WOW are being released at this show!! We have these and three others!!!!
Who wants to win one of these bad boys????

Leave me a comment and tell me what you think you would create if you had one of these stamps!! I'll be choosing a winner on the last day of CHA. Will post the winner in a next post.

Right after CHA, I'll be traveling stratight to Vista, CA to teach at Ever After Scrapbooks!!! If you are in the area, come and see me!! We are going to have a lot of fun!!!

Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Deep in the heart of Texas

There have been many times in my life where I've thought, I need to thank my
Heavenly Father for putting wonderful people in my life.

I'm having one of those moments right now. The last few days have been very
special for me for more than one reasons.

As you all know, I love teaching. I love hanging out and meeting new people
everywhere I go. I love listening to their stories and looking at their
pictures. I love seeing their faces when they've completed something that I've
taught. I love hearing the WOWS and YAY when they have learned something new.

This past weekend I got to hang out with amazing girls with amazing stories!
I want to tell you about three girls. Three sisters. I'll try not to get
emotional when I type....ooops too late.

You know how I love and gush about my
family? I'm going to take a moment and gush on others besides my own. :)

Three sisters:

One...the owner of a beautiful scrapbook store.
One that helps to manage the store.
One that helps out her sisters.
They all live pretty close to each other. As I talked to them individually I
learned how much they love each other and how much they felt their sisters did
for them. They are so grateful to have each other.

My heart is so full right now over what I saw, heard, and felt.

Thank you to these three three beautiful friends.

Tonight when I say my prayers...I'll be thanking my heavenly father for you and your shining

Here are some pictures of my weekend with them. Can't wait to see them again in October!!

 Next stop...CHA!!! Come and see me at the WOW Embossing Powder booth!! It's going to be awesome!!! Then I'm off to Ever After where I'm teaching a fun class and cropping with the girls!!!

Have a great week everyone!
