Well I am finally updating my blog. Did anyone miss me??? LOL Sorry for disappearing this past year and a half. I can't believe it has been that long!! I have been through so much though....major surgery last year and changing jobs just a couple of months ago. I have missed stamping so much! I do hope to jump back in with both feet. I ordered alot of the new goodies and they should arrive tomorrow!! So I hope to post a new card Saturday and maybe even a scrapbook page Sunday. I have some ideas that I have been tossing around since I ordered all the new stuff!!! I definitely have the itch!! The bad news is I have to work bare with me if I run behind a bit. I feel a bit rusty with the small changes I have made so far :-) I can't even imagine uploading pictures :-)

Stay tuned........

Scapbook pages....

Good Afternoon!! This past week has been very busy!! I went to Taste of Home Cooking show this past week. Wow! I have been several times, but I always have so much fun! If you get a chance to go....definitely go! The price of the ticket pays for the magazines that you get, plus they always give out lots of great prizes!! A good friend of mine (hey Marsha!!) actually won of the dishes they cooked, it came in a beautiful bowl!!
Work has been keeping me on my toes as well :-) It seems like there is always some kind of drama going on :-) *sigh* only 11 years until retirement!! LOL

Okay, I was actually so tired yesterday. I slept until 11:30!!! I NEVER sleep that late! I was afraid I might be coming down sick, but I guess my body was just trying to get caught up on sleep:-) I even took a nappie around 1:00 and slept for another hour or so! LOL I know I am so sad :-) The good news is I got in the mood to scrapbook! I haven't been able to stop! LOL So definitely stay tuned this week because I have another three layouts to share with you!!

I was lucky when I found this at Michaels several weeks ago and got 40% off to boot! Anyway, I am not sure you can tell, but the used a clear sparkle pen on the ornies and edged all around the ornie cuttlebug embossing folder. Very sparkly in real life.
