My first class at Scrap ETC

Yes, that's right! My first official class at Scrap ETc.

Now, I have had a few "class kits" and I tought a girls class during the summer, but, yes, until Friday night......nope, not me!

But, what fun! I was thrilled to be teaching alongside Virginia, Gretchen, Lucy, and Vanessa! What a great time! The class was FULL, by the end of the night, we were exhausted, but the 7 gypsies carousel is so cute! You can see more pictures on the Scrap ETC Blog!

So, thanks, ladies, for coming, and for not throwing tomatoes (or paper scraps!) at me!

Mercedes.....a weekend full!

Look at this cute guy! My Chap and his friend Max.........they ran the Kids Marathon! Now, if you are not familiar with this one, it is where they sign up, and then they log their miles (PE, outside, other running, etc) until this day......completing 25.2 miles in advance, then now on this day, they run 1 one mile, and they get a Marathon Medal! How fun is that!

But just before that Mas ran the 5k, setting his PR of 35 minutes! I mean, look at this picture, he is turning it on, for sure! Now, we have always joked with him, since he was little in Tball.....he is an excellent athlete, but I think he was born with lead in his butt......however, this race, he burned it in! And, he was HAPPY! Way to go, Mas!

Now, Sunday morning, we started up......a little bit chilly, but great running weather, and off we went. I set out for the half (along with my good friend, Gretchen), my mom, sis, broinlaw and sisinlaw participated in Relay Teams, and Scott ran the full! Yes, he is a maniac, I am sure! But, he did it! After we finished, Me, Gmac and Stuart set out on a quest to be Scott's biggest supporters, and we found him at 4 different locations!!! Go Scott Go!!!

The family that runs together......................has serious "day-after" pains together :)

Love is in the air!

Yes, what a cheesy title, but I am not sure what else to say.......so it is.
So, I will start with these. I made a TON of these.........I mean, a ton! All of my nieces and nephews, ALL of the kids in Chap's class, ALL of Mas' teachers, and then anyone and everyone else they wanted to "share the love" with!
I LOVE the tag that he put on this one..........To Chap From Chap! Classic, that kid!
Then, onto these beauties! Yes, this might be my most favorite treat EVER!!!! Ok, so I am usually not a fan of the shaped stuff, seems like just too much trouble. But, this......totally worth it!
So, baked the brownies in the 13x9.
Let cool. (kindof.....I am super impatient)
Then cut with cookie cutter.
Then, I put mine into Ziplock bags and put them down inside these!
Yes, that's right! How cute are these. I totally downloaded them from Twig & Thistle. It is the funnest little project!
I totally wish I had time to do the pies! If I do, I will work on those Saturday night!
Ok, so anyways, then I baked some cookies, and put them in treats bags with little toppers that say :Chocolate and You, what a sweet treat!
Yes, my house smells like a dream! And, everyone will be happy with these yummy treats, for sure! Here's a pic of a little assortment!

Scripts! Yummy!

I had tons of fun with this Scritpts Kit from Scrap ETC. Yet again, it is packed with randomness, yet all put together, it is just beautiful scrap-goodness!
This layout, Pool Friends Rock.....well, I think it is lacking a little something, but I am not sure, so if you have any ideas, I will be happy to take 'em!
I love this October Afternoon, I love the canvas, I love the American Crafts!
Yes, I had fun with this kit! More to come from this kit, soon! I made lots of stuff with it!

I love Jesus, but I drink a little

My goodness this is funny stuff!

Did I fail to mention the cruise?

Man, oh man, I promise that mouse brings out the best in me!

What a way to recover............lots of days on the Disney Wonder! I love this ship! I love the mouse! I love the food! I love the customer service!

Anyways, I love this shot of the kids just hanging out at a photo spot! They ran ahead of us, but when they got there, they stopped, and waited.........they KNEW we would want a picture! Too cute!

It makes me happy just to think about it again, and look at the pictures, goodness, these times with my kids are good times! Good memories!

Can't wait to go again...................

Having a little fun with the January Kit!

Well, I finally picked up my Scripts kit and had a little time today to play with it! Oh my! What a fun kit!!

When I stopped into Scrap ETC it feels like it's been so long since I've been in! Marathon/Cruise/CHA.......heck, it's a hard life, I tell ya!

Anyways, here's a layout I made, totally scraplifted Elizabeth Kartchner...but I couldn't help it! Her LO in Creating Keepsakes just made me want to make a cutie pie page! Speaking of HER, I could just die at the thought of her teaching at the EVENT in April! Oh my! I am just going to soak it up! She told us a little about her potential project, and YIPPEE!
Ok, I digress. Here's the layout! "We have a sister kind of fun"

And, then a little photo book, again, totally inspired by Virginia Tillery on this one! She always rocks these little flip books, so I had to do one for the hubby for Heart Day!
So, how come no one told me how extremely cool this Doodlebug Flocked Velvet is?! Goodness, I could just eat it up! How fun!

And, finally, here's a fun layout of my little man, after his first experience on Rock n Roller Coaster! He wanted so badly to ride it the few trips before, and finally.......yes, finally, he could do it! Yeah!

I love the Basic Grey paper, and these glossy Heidi Swapp Letters, goodness they are cute!

Ok, I am on a roll, bring on the February Scripts Kit!
