Thank Goodness for iPhones!

My home computer is at the sad that I am not able to share the fun projects I am making! At least I can check out what is going on with my bloggie friends on my iphone. Whew!

Hope to be back in business soon!

Why Did I Wait So Long!

I guess I have always resisted change, but really now! I started using Close to My Heart's Studio J this weekend so that I could answer questions from one of my customers. I AM NOW HOOKED! What an easy way to complete layouts. I will not give up my traditional scrapbooking, but I will defiantly add Studio J layouts to my books!

You can check out Studio J and play around with your layouts. You do not have to purchase, but can see what your layouts will look like and the awesome editing tools, paper kits and layout options. And of course, if you have any questions you can email me at

Here are a couple of layouts I created. It was so fast and easy....I made 10-2 page layouts in a matter of hours!

More Sofia Workshop on the Go!

Here are some layouts I made using the Sofia WOTG. I do love the scrapbook recipes in the kit!

One layout is of our granddaughter Allie's 2nd birthday. It was so funny, she woke up on her birthday and started "acting" two! I almost titled the layout "It's My Party and I Will Cry if I Want To", but decided to scrap her cute pics instead! I think she was just overwhelmed, by all the people, jumpy house, sand box (with pink sand!) and well just all the excitement.

My second layout is of my Mother's Day... such a wonderful day in a St. Helena winery. And even though my boys couldn't be with me, I truly felt spoiled by all my flowers and the wonderful day.

ps...hoping someday I will take better pics of my layouts so that I don't have to crop them so much! working on it...LOL

Flashback Friday 14.0

A new Flashback Friday Challenge! The challenge is your first gift card holder posted on your blog. Mine is from a card kit I won from Paper Crafts. The gift card fits right into the front pocket and the card opens so that you can write inside.

I enjoy the inspiration from these challenges and it's loads of fun! Amy's sponsor this month is "The Craft's Meow" and it is an adorable stamp set!

Sofia Workshop on the Go

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend, even though it seems to have flown by!

It was fun to create with the Sofia WOTG. I really got to "Pink it Up"! Having two boys, I generally try to collect "guy" colors. It was fun to create these cards and have used this kit a lot for my birthday cards I make for church.

My group meets this Friday night and I can't wait to see all that they create with their kits. Bring on the Pink!

Sneak Peek...

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Did you hear the chirping....I spent a entire day on Saturday playing with my new CTMH Art of Philosophy Cricut Cartridge! The card, circle, sentiment shapes, scallop boarder, everything is cut with this cartridge. No fussy cutting or punches. It really is amazing!

Here are a couple of cards that we will be making Sunday at my upcoming workshop. Did I say I just love our new Cricut cartridge!

Happy Monday!
