Cards, Cards, And More Cards!

I have plenty of scrapbook layouts to do, however, I seem to much prefer doing cards. Of course, I swore I never would do either because of all the work that goes into it. Well, here I am a card maker and a scrapbooker for about eight years now. I sure have a lot of "stuff", but what's even better is that I have some wonderful friendships because of my addiction, er... hobby. So before I get back to school, I'm creating like crazy. Some of these are originals and some, well, not so much.

First, wedding cards my daughter needs...
-the "MR and MRS" was cut from the invitation
- the botanical pressed background paper was from the invite
 - these both used up some scraps

 -these I played around with some watercolor crayons

 - this one was so much fun to color in

and for my father-in-law who got a hole-in-one last week...

and my first time playing with washi tape -

and the inspiration for the above card -

Enjoy and THANKS for visiting!

Parks & Rec Summer Classes

Hello! Yeah, I finally have some time to post! Summer has been well under way, but I chose to fill it up with classes. Besides teaching Camp Invention for a week, I enjoyed doing one of my favorite things...crafting with primary-aged children. Through a Parks and Rec program, I ran 3 four-day classes - Craft Your Art Out, All Things Girly, and Happy Everything Creations (different holiday projects). Not everything was photographed, (shame on me,) but here are pics of some of our Pinterest and original creations.
