Best "Fishes"

I made these cards with an old retired SU! set Fishy friends (some are too good to get rid of). These are four my four interns that I had this summer semester. They did such a great job!!!! They are going to be GREAT teachers! congrats to you Cesar, Rosie, Berenice, and You Yun!

This is sooo cute in the real. It actually has hair gel in the card with some foam fishes. I am in a card swap that is supposed to have a "Paradise" theme (either Underwater, Rain forest, or Tropical). Not sure if I will make 4 more of these or not- but it was fun making one!

Card Swapin in July

We have not had a card swap in a very long time. So we F-I-N-A-L-L-Y did one and boy was it GREAT! It was my two best stampin buddies Pam and Melissa and a brand new Stampin queen- Jennie. We had so much fun we decided to do this once a month rotating who's house it's at and who is the hostess.

This one was made by Melissa. She used a Flower for all seasons 111592 $14.95 set of 4 and used the colors old olive and pumpkin pie- they look great together and this card is so cute!

This was Pam's card and my FAVORITE- simply because it is for a boy and we don't make enough of these...... and now that I have a boy..... well, I really like them. She used the set Extreme Elements #115181 $26.95 set of 6 and Extreme skateboard #115179 $8.95

Last but not least Jennie's beautiful water colored card. She used one of my favorite stamp sets- Fifth Avenue Floral # 113734 $24.95 set of 5.

Happy 4th of July!

US We celebrated the 4th at our dear friends Steve, Stephanie and their daughter Meghan ,Stephanie's friend Betsy and her family, and Stephanie's sister and her family, and Steph's mom (who also was turning 71). They have become very close friends and they have been a true blessing to us- thank you guys! We had Graham's BBQ for dinner which was pretty yummy and Stephanie's beans which were to die for Beans Then we had this cake from somewhere in Redlands and OMG! Then Steve busted out the fireworks and we hid as the helicopter went around and then Steve said that he was gonna blame it all on his gardener (Steven) LOL But the best part was when I was saving a water balloon to throw at Steve and when I went to throw it over my head it busted all over me! What a great night! Smiley Fireworks

Scrapbook Saturday #2

These were the scrap pages that we made at my class last night. I love having pages ready- for some quick scrapbooking, when you want something cute but don't want to take a lot of time on a page layout. These are all ready for pictures. I used SU! retired colors, punches, and some stickers.

This one is an ALL ABOUT ME! page for the scrapbooker who never makes it into the picture. I thought this would be a super cute way to leave behind some information for my great, great, great grandchildren (kinda like this blog) to get to know me! I hope the ladies find it fun to make and fill out all thier info!

This next page was my absolute favorite but very time consuming- isn't that true about everything we do? This was our "Just Clownin' around" page- He is so stickin' cute!

Finally we had to make a Forth of July Page. This one was simple and quick using stickers and Mega Marvey punches. Enjoy your Saturday!

Up in the top corner I made a little flip up book for extra pictures that I didn't want to do extra layouts for.
