Summer is Here!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  I know I did.  We had a BBQ at my Sister and Brother-In-Law's house to celebrate Father's Day.  It was so nice to visit with everyone one.  We watched the kids play on the Slip-n-Slide.  I think the older boys had more fun that the little ones!

Last weekend I went to a scrapbooking retreat with a great bunch of ladies from Orrick.  We stayed in a lodge in Mt. Ayer Iowa.  We had such a great time. It was so nice to get away and just do whatever!  I need to do that more often. On Saturday we headed out to find a scrapbook store we had heard about.  What an awesome store.  If you are ever around Creston, IA you should stop in.  The name of the store was Maple Street Memories.  Their website is Here  It was an old Post office office and court house that was bought and refurbished then turned into this wonderful store.

Below is a birthday card I made for a good friend.  Happy Birthday Tana!  It was my first attempt at an Easel Card. This card is really nice because it supports itself on an easel so that it can be easily displayed.  This card was very fun to make.  The directions can be found Here. This is a digital stamp by Pink Cat Studio. 




I also wanted to just drop in a couple of words about the Cricut Gypsy.  I caved and bought one.  I LOVE it.  I honestly didn't see what the big tah-doo was all about.  I bought one just so I didn't have to tote all of the cartridges around when I went on crops and retreats.  Well it is just a great gadget.  I found one cheap on ebay.  I would recommend it to anyone on the fence like I was. 

Well that's it for now.  Have a great day!
