With all thats been going on lately, there just haven't been enough hours in the day. So needless to say–I've been burning the midnight oil :) a lot. But the last night I sure did get some good rest. Feels awful good.
Gosh- I have so much to share I don't know where to start! Valerie and I have been super busy with GS101– and it is just a whole lot of fun! Getting to know so many fun scrappers that are participating in the class! And seeing old friends having fun too! I started teaching sb classes about six years ago– at a store called Scrapbook Mania in Fayetteville, AR. Darla was the owner then and she took a chance on me and let me teach at her store–I will never forget that. Darla signed up for GS101!! And Linda too! (the owner of the second store where i worked!) These gals (you too, Betsy & Areletha & Karen) have a special place in my heart–not to mention so many others! I am so so grateful to have my paths crossed with folks like these.
the July cover of Scrapbooks etc…
is by me!!
The FUN photo is taken by Courtney Walsh (love her stuff), but I had the honor of getting the assignment and getting chosen for the cover layout!! WOW!!! This is the first for BHG…I'm still not believing it! I used Stephanie's SUPER CUTE Homegrown font and several folks have asked about it–check her blog out for more info.
So have you seen the new AWAY WE GO collection by Lil Davis…well, I just happen to have a big pile of this fun stuff to give away!! YES!! I figured –given its summer–everybody is going on vacation, it would be perfect for your vacation pages and books! All the papers are HERE + embellishments and stickers a plenty! You'll definitely have fun with this! So, tell me what you're doing this summer in the comments– beach, cruise, road trip, stay-cations (thats what I'm doing…just staying home :)–and I'll pick a random winner on Friday!
In other news, our Inspiration Unlimited event is filling up! We've had a great response so far and its all very exciting. Mostly because its a chance for me to spend some time with some people that I really admire and love…Teresa, Ginger and friends + get to know some folks that rock the scrapbook world– Layle and many others! Not to mention…I get to make about 100 or so NEW scrapbook buddies! WOW! What could be better? Maybe visiting with my new friends while getting a massage? or pedi? Yep…that would be dreamy! It can all happen at our fun event this fall! Can't wait!
Something else I've been happy about lately…enjoying these.
I always wanted to grow hydrangeas…and was thrilled when there was a HUGE one here at our new (old :) home…just one of the many wonderful things about this place.
What else? I cannot believe June is half over. No way. Speaking of…I better get busy for now! Have a blessed week!
