Well after much anticipation - Emily and I have been to see Phantom of the Opera. We went with our friends Kim & Becky (I pulled a lamebrainer and forgot my camera so I will have to get pics from Becky) to a Sunday evening show. It was at the Paramount theater which is beautiful (with very tight rows I might add :-0 )! I have never seen it before and I was very excited. It was a great experience - and WOW - the special effects, costumes, and talent were breathtaking. Emily decided she likes the movie better (I think it's because it's more of a story and the singing is not as operatic). But now we have one more mother/daughter memory I can scrapbook!!! Speaking of scrapbooking, I got to scrapbook all day Saturday!! My friend Sherri sells Creative Memories and she had a crop. I got 17 pages done in Brandon's book, so now his book is caught up to Oct. of his 8th grade year. My goal is to get his photo albums done by graduation (did I mention he's a Senior) so I will be doing some scrappin'!! If anyone is interested in a Friday evening crop or a Saturday crop - let me know, I'd love to host one!
NOW - on to stampin' stuff!!
I am busy making a sample for my October Stamp Class! A Perpetual Calendar! As soon as I have the sample done and costs figured out I will post the info. For now - so as to entice you - the picture is of a "Perpetual Calendar" that a friend and I made last year. I love it! The one we make will obviously be with Stampin' Up! stuff so I'm sure it will be much cuter!! It's great because you can use it from year to year. What an awesome Christmas present it would make, along with some handstamped Birthday cards, for that hard to buy for friend, Mother/mother in law, etc.(or keep it for yourself like I did) I will have a sample posted by weeks end.
DON'T FORGET!!!!!! This Thursday, Oct. 2nd is my monthly Stamp Camp - see details on the top right hand side of my blog or email me if you have any questions. Just make sure you call by Thurs. afternoon so I have enough workspace for everyone - and so I know how much CHOCOLATE to have on hand!!
