If this doesn't make you smile...

something was REALLY funny from Valerie on Vimeo.

His giggle is so contagious! I spent at least the first minute before I started filming laughing along with him.

My Next Class

We all know at the store how so many of you love to stamp and make cards using Copic markers. Have you ever gotten the chance to play with the Copic Airbrush System? During class, you'll get to make two different layouts both featuring a different line by My Mind's Eye (Blackbird and Lost and Found). You'll get to create your own patterned paper, stamp on canvas, and color fabric Thickers—all with Copic markers. Even though we're creating scrapbook pages, the techniques taught can also be applied to cardmaking or any papercrafting.

Location: The Keepsake Element
Date: October 12
Time: 6:00

Call or stop in the store today to sign up.

Recommended Supplies: Copic markers (C6, C10, BG18, BG32, and BG72), scissors, paper trimmer, Glossy Accents, tape runner
Optional supplies: Mini Mister filled with Copic blending solution

look what came in the mail today!

I ordered this from Olive Manna's lovely shop on Etsy. I first heard about Olive Manna on Elsie's blog. I have been wanting colored baker's twine for a loooong time, but didn't want to commit to purchasing whole spools. Now I have a little bit of each color. I can't wait to play! …Now if I just had all my photos edited and printed =p

And if you were wondering—that photo in the background is from when Matt and I worked at camp. It was me vs. him and the kids brought money in for a good cause. I lost that year and got covered in "worms 'n dirt" (you know… the Oreo and chocolate pudding dessert kind). Fun times!!
