Sneak Peek!! (Mom, do not look!)

I have been wanting to try a word book, so I did one for Mother's Day! I figure, being my mom she will love it no matter what it looks like, so she is a great person to try one out on..I think it turned out lovely..I may have a new obsession!

Ok, one more..Autumn in my wedding dress

Some layouts I have been working on...

I am lovin' tags right now-practically everything I do has a tag! The skateboarding LO says "Skateboarding is not a crime" which was a VERY popular saying in the 90's. (I think I had that t-shirt!)

My grandmother was a scrapbooker

I recently found out that my paternal grandmother, who passed away when my father was 12, was a scrapbooker. I am moved that my father gave her albums to me. I want to restore them, while preserving her work and her memories. You can see that she used materials available to her at the time, and in the scrapbooks are pasted cards, little cut out sayings and of course her journaling. I am truly blessed to have gotten these.

Getting ready to SWARM!

Well, I am getting geared up for the Pine City SWARM in Pine City, MN. A SWARM is a group of papercrafters that use the cricut machine, or would like to try using the cricut. We have some "newbies" this time, and some seasoned scrappers too. It is a lot of fun to introduce someone to scrapbooking or papercrafting, and to show people what the cricut can do. Most people are amazed!! Here is Autumn's last birthday cake, pumpkin and castle are made with the cricut.
