Naked Ladies and Back to Reality
Yes...I said NAKED LADIES, but the kind that sing and are from Canada!! The Barenaked Ladies performed for the convention that we were at and it was like a private concert for about 400 people. FUN STUFF I tell ya. I didn't think I was that big of a fan, but after about 20 minutes I was hooked. They were very entertaining and their music is really pretty good! Check out the new song. I'm sure you've all heard it before!!

I told you all I would post a few pics of the playing cards that I was working on in Florida. Here ya go. Nothing too exciting, but got a good start. Just a little FYI, I am not covering the backs at this time, cause I really like the look of those cards. Depeding on my mood, I either cover the back or the front.

And a couple of layouts for fun...

I will check in again real soon. I'll have some pics of some of the new products in the store.

Don't forget to leave a comment to get your name in the drawing for a $25 gift certificate to the store. If you haven't yet and are reading this...WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?


Have you all signed up for the Friday night crop on May 11th? It's the Chocolate Fountain Crop for only $15! All the chocolate you can eat!! Click here to find out more...

COMIN ATCHYA FROM HOLLYWOOD, BABY! it's not THE Hollywood, but it is Hollywood, Florida. And it is GORGEOUS here! Basically we're right in Fort Lauderdale and only a few more minutes from Miami. Never been to this part of Florida...have you? It's very pretty and the ocean is intoxicating! I am heading out there in just a few minutes to get some pictures. But this is the view from our room...

Not too shabby, eh? While my husband is in meetings all day, I plan to have some fun in the sun, put my feet in the sand...oh and SCRAPBOOK! Yes, this is like a mini scrapbook retreat for me. I don't have any little monkeys running around me and no fights to break up. I have to give a big shout out to Granny Nanny and Mama Bear (aka: my mom and my auntie from Canada). I hope and pray that they aren't regretting their offer to come and babysit for us!! Thank you for helping us!!

So I decided to work on those cute Heidi Swapp Playing Cards. Did you all get some of those? For now, I'm doing very random theme to mine yet. Here's a sneak peak for you girls...I will show more pics when I get more done.

And here is my workspace...thought I'd throw it in for fun...

You can't see most of my stuff...I've put it all away in the drawers so the cleaning lady won't get too freaked out by all my stuff!

Ok...before I say goodbye for now...have you all left a comment for the$25 gift certificate contest? I'm so proud of you girls from the last post...I saw some new names, too! Stay tuned...I'm off to the beach (I know you're all hating me right now!!)

Since we've decided to celebrate Fiesta...let's kick off a new RAK. This is going to be an easy one.

All you have to do is leave a comment in the next two weeks. Starting with this post, you can leave a comment anytime (only once is required) until MAY 4th.
On or after the 4th we'll draw one lucky winner. You don't have to be a mother, by the way. So don't be shy...leave a comment for me. It doesn't take anything to register with Google. It's simple and you don't get a bunch of yucky junk mail from them! Come on...let's have fun with this!!

A new week...I hope it's a good one!

If anyone was interested in or hoping to take Jennifer Stewarts class this past Saturday, BUT COULDN'T ...I've got a few pictures to share with you!! I, myself, couldn't take it in I got a kit. I can't wait to put it together. It looked like the girls were having so much fun putting it together.

Look at Jen's lovely table full of cuteness! I want it all!! If you want to see more great pics and see what she had to say about her big day in San Antonio, click here...

I also wanted to introduce another one of 911's fabulous employees. Her name is JANE. Here she is...

You can find Jane working a couple of times a month. If you happen to see her...ya, you know the drill by now...SAY HI. Hi Jane!

A couple of new things that you might like...

Just a few more fun things from Cosmo Cricket. The lacing cards come painted (or printed already) and have everything in the kit like chipboard alpha buttons, chipboard embellishments, and 7 yards of ribbon. Wow...I love it.
I wanted to share a few layouts that I was able to get done over the weekend. Happy Monday to you all! And a big thank you to everyone for your comments from the last post. I really appreciate your feedback!!

Good afternoon everybody! What a gorgeous day today. This is a day to get out and go for a walk. As soon as I finish this blog, I am forcing myself to go for a walk. It is too nice out to stay inside. Come it with me. When you finish reading this...get your shoes on and move it. How's that for motivational speaking? I wish I could talk like that all the time!

So have you signed up for Jennifer Stewarts class yet? If not, you can always get a kit. If you ever can't make it to a class at 911, you can almost ALWAYS GET A KIT! Just call and talk to any of the friendly girls at the store.

By the way...have you all seen and/or met this nice girl?

Gaelynn usually works during the days and also teaches various classes (check the calendar to see which ones). If anyone is just starting out or knows somebody who needs help getting started in scrapbooking, Gaelynn teaches a great Beginner class. If you ever need help with anything...just look for Gaelynn. She is very knowledgeable. And if you already know her...please say hello! HI GAELYNN!!
Anyone interested in some new stuff? We have a few things that are very cool. I won't be able to show you everything, so please stop in to the store so you can see for yourself all of the great new items.

This is most of the Crate Paper stuff that came in. Yummy paper, rub-ons, chipboard, etc. I had to get a picture of Dania shopping. Look at her coordinating her paper on the floor! Too cute! * In case you didn't know can click on any image to enlarge it. *

We also got in a few things from Melissa Francis...

Clear stamps, vintage frames and architecture shapes, scrapbook collections (kits) just to name a few. Fun, fun, fun! Come on in and see!

Since clear stamps are the THE THING nowadays, I did another layout using my Heidi Swapp and Autumn Leaves stamps. Here ya go. Hope you all have a nice day and get out for some fresh air! Stay tuned...more fun stuff coming your way.

P.S. I want to hear from you girls, gals, women, men...whoever is reading this. What would you like to see more of or less of on this blog? Do you like pictures? Do you like seeing product? Do you like to see more layouts for inspiration? If you have any suggestions...please let me know. I would love to hear from you. Please don't be shy. If you don't want to comment, you can also email me. Thanks!!
