Happy New Year- 2011 OMG Did I just say 2011

Happy New Year's My Fellow Scrappers!

Sorry for such a yucky picture of my Calendar Class. I am just not good at taking these pictures...but I promise in person it is beautiful! It is chocked full of techniques...and yes we are making our very own champagne bottle and flute with acrylic! We will be working with some awesome papers such as My Minds Eye, Graphic 45, Coordinations, and glitter paper. You will be stickling and bubbling and glittering! Oh my this is going to be fun and INTERESTING! Be on the lookout for your email and if you don't get my emails but really interested in taking the class, call TM 337-534-4433.

A Family Affair

I have been knowing Angela for about 3 years now, ever since I began teaching at TM. She has taken many of my classes, I have personally scrapbooked for her and made many shadowboxes and other gift items for her. Pretty much every year we have a private "Family & Friends" class for her and her favorite girls. Today we had her daughter Allison, her niece, her son's girlfriend and a few special friends that came to join in on the fun. I feel so privalidged to know this family and get the opportunity to hold special classes for them. These girls are so much fun and so willing to try anything...they had lots of fun today learning how to make the paper spiral roses, or peonies as they called them!Angela and her girls showing off their plates!
This is Angela's masterpiece.
Lily showing her Christmas creation!
Angela's niece, her plate was so precious with the snowman theme! When they realized we would be having more classes using these plates they were so excited. I will be having a Valentine's Day Class and a Mardi Gras Class so stay tuned for dates and times and if you have my email and are interested please feel free to email me.
Happy Scrapping!

Christmas 2010

MERRY CHRISTMAS! I hope you all had a marvelous Christmas, as I did. I have to say I really racked up this actually was in stages. My parents decided to come for the holidays (they had thought they might stay home) so my mom had already taken me Christmas shopping during Thanksgiving. I got my apron, a fantastic pair of cowboy boots that I had been wanting for so long, and a bling bling jacket. So anyways when they decided they were coming she felt she needed something for me to open, she got perfumes, body lotions and money (always can use the green stuff)! My hubby I guess felt really bad for me because it seems as though everyone but myself has the Cricut Expression. So he went all out and got me the yellow one...he knows me so well! I would have either chosen the yellow or red. I can't wait to start playing with it...though I use the one at TM all the time, now I can make big circles and of course big stars for all my boy layouts! Guess what else he gave me...a gift card to Chris's Poboy...boy does he know me or what!?! My boys had a great time opening presents and my hubby enjoyed the bike, shirt and cologne that I got him. Overall it was a great time, too much food though...bursting at the seams! I hope you all had a joyous season. I have a few special prayers out there for friends that have lost family members and a special neighbor's husband who is in the hospital right now. Though we have great times, we must remember all of the people out their struggling for whatever reason and pray for them.
Happy Scrapping and I can't wait to show you what I make with my Cricut!

Last Minute Christmas Class @ TM today!

Well, I actually made this charger last year. I had seen the idea or something like it last year and just thought that's really cool. I could just add my new Christmas picture each year. So I made it and didn't show anyone. This year I added the paper roses and brought it to TM and low and behold I had a class filled with about 13 people. I have to say I teach some of the sweetest ladies that love to take classes and I am so honored that they take my classes each month. THANK YOU LADIES...too many to list all their names, but they know who they are! You all are the best! Many Christmas wishes to all and Happy New Year!

Photo Shoot: Take 20!

Every year I send Christmas cards to my family members and every year it is such an ordeal to take the pictures. How hard could it be to take 2 little boys pictures? Let me answer this for you....VERY HARD!!! I can never get them to cooperate at the same time, smile at the same time, sit still...not climb on each other and it really gets me every year! These are the only 2 I could capture that were okay. Hope my family just understands that boys will be boys and I go through so much just to get these cards out every year.

Onto my next bit of gibber gabber. I want to know from you my blog readers what kind of camera do you use. I am in very bad need of a new camera. I broke (or think I broke) my Nikon D80 and I have a point and shoot Lumix that I just hate, because it doesn't take good pictures of children that move alot. So when I save my money up I'd like to buy another good Nikon. I would love to know of any good deals and what you like about your camera. Hope to get a few responses!

Santa's Watching

Hi my fellow scrappers and blog followers! I hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas season. Please be careful driving around these busy streets and parking lots while everyone is out and about doing lots of Christmas shopping.

Above is my layout for the monthly Calendar class that I teach at TM. The dates are Dec. 14th, 18th and 19th. I have just a few spots in each class left. If you are in need of a break from shopping please come join us...I just love this layout, and the window is actually made of acrylic...looks so real!

Happy Scrappin'
