Saleabration Finale Memories

As usual, the last few days of saleabration are a little busy so sorry I haven't posted earlier!
Here's a few pictures of the fun we had at the saleabration finale last Thursday!  It was a great evening of stamping, socializing, snacking and great prize giveaways!
I thought to add to the fun I would make some mustaches for the straws using our Mustache framelit die (item 133741)




And you can't have a party without a little goodie bag! I decorated these bags using the Simply Wonderful Stamp set (item 139125) This cute stamp set is only available for one more day then it's gone for good...along with sale-a-bration 2015!

And here's one of the Make n takes using the Nature's Perfection stamp set

The colour in the flower was made by stamping the flower image in strawberry slush ink and then using an aquapainter and rubbing it over the image causing the colour to bleed into the flower.
Last day to take advantage of sale-a-bration!  It ends tomorrow!

Friendship IS a Sheltering Tree

We sure made some wonderful memories with our Texan house guests this past week. Our special friends left Wednesday morning and my daughter sure shed a bucketful of tears. Although I tried to share wisdom like "absence makes the heart grow fonder" and "focus on the good times you had instead of her being gone", she still is contemplating moving to Texas.
Here's some pictures of the fun we all shared. Nothing like out of town visitors to make you want to do as many tourist attractions as possible and eat non stop!






I had kind of hoped that Christi and I would get some stamping done while she was here but the days were so jam packed!  We talked a lot about stamping but only managed to stamp for a little bit.  Here's a card I created.  She inspired me to take out my sheltering tree set and play.  (yes, sometimes stamping demonstrators just have whole conversations about how we love stamping and our favourite sets etc etc).  The sentiment was just perfect for the friendship we and our daughters experience. 

Here's the supply list.  Click on any of the images to take you to my online store!

Easy March Break Activities


Enjoy this week's Watch it Wednesday video.  I love sharing Stampin' Up! on Rogers Daytime.  The host is a lot of fun and there's really a big adrenaline rush that comes from having to set up my display during a commercial break and sharing everything I love in 4 minutes.  No pressure.  Nope.  None at all.
Now that our stampin' friends from Texas have returned home, I'm sure I'll be printing out my pictures and doing some Project Life by Stampin' Up!  to re-live and enjoy the memories (and to help my daughter cope with the loss of having a friend by her side 24 hours a day)

Want to get your memories in an album?  Make sure to contact me and book your private Album in an Evening session!
