Welcome Neighbor

Last week in our neighborhood we got new neighbors right next door. I'm thrilled about this because the previous folks did not take care of the yard and the first day they were moving in, I could hear them talking about all that they were going to be doing to the yard. I'm so excited, hoping that people moving into all of the foreclosures in the area will start bring property values back up. We don't have a very tight knit neighborhood and I really hope to change that by welcoming the new neighbors with a card and cookies. I took inspiration from two fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators who have projects posted at a SU demo website only. Thanks Carrie Arsenault and Marti Smith. I combined their two different style cards.

Cardstock: Old Olive
DSP: Welcome Neighbor 6x6 DSP (SAB 2010)
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Chocolate Chip
Ribbon: 1/4 inch Old Olive Grosgrain

Bridal Shower Workshop

These are four layouts that guests at a Bridal Shower Workshop will create. There will be 2 or 3 of each layout because this workshop will have several guests. I've left space for the bride to journal her own thoughts down on each page. I also plan to bring some other stamp sets in case guests would like to change any of the images.

Blackhawk, CO

Hi Stampers...

Just wanted to share with you my weekend. My husband and I just celebrated 16 years of marriage on 4/30. We went up to Blackhawk, CO and stayed overnight at the Ameristar Hotel & Casino. Wow, what a gorgeous hotel. I can't wait to go back. Of course, we forgot bathing suits and were disappointed that we couldn't use the pool and can you believe it, I forget my camera. It was a ton of fun, but we lost money, didn't win a dime. I have no luck at all. Anyway, I would recommend this place to anyone planning to stay overnight up there. The King Deluxe room is outstanding.

Ok, I made a few crafts and I will try to post them tonight for Teacher Appreciation Week.
