What A Wonderful Day!

Yesterday, (Saturday, July 18, 2009) I attended a card class at Debbi Acampa's house (a/k/a my new BFF). It was wonderful. She is sooooo talented and beautifully sweet. She spent about an hour with me going over some of the new Stampin' Up! stuff. After looking at the items and actually using some of the items I don't have, I have decided they are a must have. I appreciate her advice and her willingness to share her experiences with me.

Some of her card class buddies stopped by and we worked on our projects. It was a great day of fellowship. Attached is a photo of what we made.

Finished Project

I finished my note card project and am very happy with the way it turned out. I used the new Designer Paper Razzelberry Lemonade. Right now, this is my favorite paper. I love the bright colors.

Now to get my room cleaned up before my cousin and aunt come over the scrapbook.

July 4th Weekend

What a great 4th of July weekend I had.

Friday started off with a used, but new to me tractor for our barn. We are calling her "Gertrude". She is a little rough around the edges, but runs great. It is going to make barn chores much more manageable.

Saturday we spent most of the day working around the barn with our "Gertrude". Each of us took turns, however my turn was spent "hopping" around. I haven't quite gotten the gas and clutch figured out, but no worries, I am soon to be a pro. I did happen to manage reverse very well, as can be seen in the photo.

Sunday, was the best day of all. I got to SCRAPBOOK THE WHOLE DAY!! I haven't gotten to scrapbook in such a long time. It was wonderful. Hopefully I can have a few more days like this and get some more layouts done. I am anxious to use some of the new Stampin' Up Designer Paper and other goodies I received.
