Warm Winter Wishes

I hope it is a good morning where you are.  I know I am posting late this week.  It is because of the Storm that hit the East Coast.  I was really nervous Monday that I was going to lose my electricity for days again.  I lost it Monday afternoon and thought this was it.  I woke up yesterday and saw lights!!  I was so happy!!  I was so preoccupied with it Monday I didn't get alot done at work so I started early yesterday and didn't stop until last night.  I still have some catching up to do today but I consider myself very lucky.  There are still alot of people in town without electricity and I work with some people that won't have theirs back for 7-10 days.

This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we have an easy and fun challenge.  POP IT UP!  Make a card or project with something on it Popped up.  I love pop dots.  I think I use them on every card.

Happy Fall

Good Morning.  Happy Tuesday.  I hope you had a good weekend.  I got some crafting done!  I am getting together with friends this weekend to craft so I got some images colored to play with.  Now I just need to pack up all my stuff and as you crafter's know that is the hard part.  I try not to bring everything I own but I want everything I need!

This week the Challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations is Leaves!   Here all the leaves have started falling off the trees.   I would have liked to see them on the trees a little while longer but last year we had a freak snowstorm at the end of October and because all the leaves were still on the trees they were heavy and brought down alot of electric lines.  I lost my electricity for 4 days.  I never want that to happen again so they can all fall down.

Trick or Treat

Happy Tuesday!  It was a strange weather weekend here.  Saturday was near 80 degrees and Sunday never it 60 degrees.  Saturday I went with my sister and niece shopping.  We went to a Scrapbook store an hour away from where we live.  I didn't spend alot.  For some reason I couldn't find alot of what I wanted.  This was a first for me but I am really trying not to impulse buy.

This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we want you to make a project with Pumpkins on it.  I love coloring Pumpkins.  There are so many ways to color them.  Get out those pumpkins.  We would love to see what you do with them!!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Good Morning.  I hope you had a good weekend.  It was dark, dreary and rainy for us so I did some relaxing and crafting. I love the cooler weather though.  It is really nice to look forward to go out and not have it hot and humid.

This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we are thinking Fall.  The theme this week is Fall Flowers.  I chose to use my Mothers Birthday card for this. I do alot of cutsie cards so it is nice to do a nice grown-up card once in a while.  I like the way this came out.  I hope she likes it when I give it to her this week.
