Verse Card

I love these Faith vellum quotes from Creative Memories. I've never been a big Creative Memories fan, however, I wish I had purchased several sets of these. They make the prettiest cards, especially when I'm in a rush and don't have time to stamp. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Love and a Hug,

Yard Sale Hauls - July 16/17

This candle holder is beautiful on my front porch.
I paid less than $5 for everything in this picture.

My favorite author is Beverly Lewis. I picked these up for 10 cents. They retail for $14.99 each!

Raulph Lauren Handtowels (50 cents), Adorable tin shakers (25 cents)
Wind Chime ($1), new pot holder (25 cents), Mailbox cover (10 cents), and Tupperware Container (50 cents)

I scored a ton of LPS figures at a great price! :)

I was delighted by the perfect weather, plethora of sales, and great pricing this weekend. Amongst my many finds were a Willow Tree Angel for 10 cents, a brand new Rosetti wallet for 50 cents, a brand new magnetic mailbox cover for 10 cents, and an awesome Pier 1 import candle holder for my front porch (with a gorgeous marble base) for $1.50. I bought even more than is pictured here! I also got a bag of My Little Ponies and other little animals, six badmitton rackets, a bag of badmitton birdies, and a double stroller (I'll donate it to the Care Pregnancy Center).
*The Yard Sale of the Weekend was definitely on Lincoln Avenue in Martinsburg. The Worst Yard Sale of Weekend was definitely the one where my mother-in-law and I both had some things in our hands that we were going to purchase, but we put them down and walked away after the seller was rude to several elderly shoppers. I can't remember the address, but it was in the subdivision closest to the Weight Watchers office off of Rock Cliff Drive. There's no need to be rude - yard sales should be fun!

Sweet Birthday Card

I made this card using the sketch over at Carol's Sketch Fun. This was a fun sketch that I will use again. I printed out the sketch and put it in my sketch book to refer back to later. Thanks for the great sketch, Carol!

By the way, I plan to hit the yard sales this week and weekend, so keep your eyes peeled for a new Yard Sale Report!

Whimsical is the Word

While making this card, I was in a whimsical mood. I was also in the mood to use up some supplies that I've had forever, like these brads. The result, was this card for the challenge over at 2 Red Bananas this week. It's whimsical and cute... just like the special friend that I made it for! :)

Berry Sweet Project

I'm working on my Strawberry Shortcake Convention Scrapbook. The 2009 Convention is only 26 days away, and I haven't finished my 2008 album yet. ;) When I look at these photos, I can really tell that I've lost 41 pounds and it encourages me to keep going on my journey to my ultimate weight loss goal.

Oh, by the way, while at the Great American Scrapbooking Convention in Chantilly, I learned about a wonderful website: They have 1,500 items for just $1 each. You should check out their site for great K&Company, embellishment, and adhesive deals.

Fun Times, Great Friends

Raffle Time Page The Goody Bags (Actually in a Flower Pot)Carolyn in her Garden Party Hat


Today's HappyScrapper Meeting was awesome! I think it was one of the best we've had. I didn't get a whole lot of scrappin' or card makin' done, but it didn't matter. I thoroughly enjoyed the company of such precious, wonderful women. We laughed a lot! We also shared supplies, inspiration, and ideas. Here are some pictures from the party and a couple of pages I managed to finish, using the photos from the 2008 Strawberry Shortcake Convention.

Scrap, Tac, Toe

I made up a game for my HappyScrappers Group called Scrap, Tac, Toe. I made the gameboard around a "Garden Party" theme since that is the theme for this month's crop. I thought I'd share it with any of you that have social scrapbooking groups or crops. If you do share it on your blog or website, please give me credit. I can't figure out how to link it here??? So, if you'd like it, let me know and I'll email it to you.
