Brandon and Baseball and the end of the school year!!!


Hi to all my friends out there. Once again I have been neglecting all my awesome friends out there. Baseball season has been way busy this year. With all the rain out games and game stop due to darkness, Brandons team has a bunch of games to make up not to mention we are preparing for the end of the school year and 8th. grade promotion festivities. I am on the board for the 8th. grade promotion party and this year we are having it at a Bowling Alley here in Concord(Calif) It is going to be so much fun. They are shutting down the bowling alley for the evening so Sequoia Middle School has it all to themselves. We are having Twilight Bowling, Dancing, Tons of food, Lifetouch will be there to take photos of the kids and prizes and games. It should be a great night for all the kids!
As for Baseball, Brandon's team is UN defeated and we are having like 4 games a week for the next couple of weeks not to mention he is also on another team that games start in 2 weeks. We are prepping him fo
r High School ball. Wow! High School next year. My little man is growing up. Here are a few photos from his team with Concord American Little League, I wanted to at least post something to share with you all. Once school is done I have have time to get back to my stamping everyday. Believe me, I will be stamping every day so with that being said, I am going to sign off for tonight and I will chat with you all real soon! Big Hugs to all my friends ~!In this last picture of him pitching, Can you see the dimple in his cheek. I just love his dimples!

Happy Friday everyone. Finally, I didn't think that Friday would ever get here. Well, I have created a few things and also went to another one of Gina's stamp camps. We made some absolutely adorable things. The first item is a cute little goodie bag using the Stampin Up! "Bigz" Top Note die. We cut a little white craft bag and attached the die cut (one on each side) the added the scallop with the birdie from, oh my goodness, I forgot the name of the stamp set. Well it is a set from Stampin Up!
Then onto the adorable little candy box. it fits 3 Ghirardelli choc. squares. and we made a little band to hold it together. Then the card, well, Gina had it mostly put together for us, we just had to do the stamping and adding the paper to the chip board(pear) All 3 projects were fairly easy to make and we always have so much fun. I totally look forward to Gina's stamp camps eve
ry month!

Now for the Mothers day card I made. This one is for Craigs mom, I will work on my mom's card tomorrow night, I am such a last minute lucy, I think I thrive on doing things last minute. So onto her card. I really really like this card. I was able to use my many designs of DP(let me tell you, I could open a store of DP alone) The stamp set I used was "Doodle This" My color combo was Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Certainly Celery and whisper white. I added some bling in the areas that I used my Ticket punch. I am just really excited about this one. It did take me a while to put it together but it was so worth it! Let me know what you think!
If I dont get on here again this weekend, I want to wish all you mom's out there A very Happy Mothers day!!

Some 2 page Layouts







Hello all, Well here is the first of my 2 layouts that I actually completed at the crop that I went to yesterday. This one is from Halloween. I havent scrapbooked in so long that it took me a while to complete this. Oh, and I am the one in the Ketchup costume. I am a lunch lady at an elem. school so this costume was perfect for me.I am so happy that I got this layout done.


This next one is from a trip we made to Apple Hill. This too was around Halloween time. Apple Hill is up by Placerville, Calif. At fall time you go there and there are tons of Farms, Apple Orchards, etc. You can buy crafts, fruits,Pies and enjoy people watching from farm to farm. It is so much fun and we like to go every year. The 2nd. page was basically my mom and my aunt just being plain goofy. We are a family like that, Love to be goofy!

I hope everyone had a productive National scrapbook day and enjoy the month!!

A sketch challenge


Here is a sketch challenge that I put together for Jenn Balcers WSC. It took me a while to figure out what colors I was going to use but once I did, It just kinda came together! I used a Magnolia Tilda image and colored her in with my Copics. I am still trying to get the hang of those darn Copics but I guess practice makes perfect. The colors I went with were Real Red, YoYo yellow, Orchid Opulance and white. I used my Swiss dots EF to add a little texture and the flowers I used are called fabric fancies. I added a green brad in the middle of both sets of flowers. The patterned paper I used is from Stampin Up! and is in a 6X6 pad that I received as a gift from the awesome Gina Taylor! For the sentiment, I used Thank you... For your friendship. Go on over to Jenn's blog and check out her challenge and play along!
