Finally..... The block was lifted. I came into the studio this morning and had a mental block. So I cleaned my table off yet again and went through some paper and then I read my usual morning blogs. And I had missed the SCS Challenge last week. I went through pages and pages of the challenge and it worked... I first picked out my colors then grabbed my Cricut Cartridge Walk in My Garden. Then it all came together. I cut enough flowers leaves and pots to make several cards. I since changed the design a little bit but it is so worth it. I love them. And who doesn't like getting flowers....
Hope you enjoy it..

Yesterday we attended the Coronation ceremony at my daughters school. The kids wore formals and tuxs and walked down to the center of the stage set up for them. There are 10 boys and 10 girls so it was perfect the boys escorted the girls down to the middle. Once there they read a little about the student and then a letter from the student to the parents and there friends and teachers. Then a letter from the parents to the student was read. I was sitting in the front row which was cool in a way. However once the letter reading began with my daughter the tears poured out. She looked down at me and quickly looked on to her grandma who was crying then onto her dad and then to other mom's. She said everyone she looked at had tears in there eyes. She finally decided to look at the wall. It was very nice and we took lots of pictures. Tonight is the final or the Coronation ceremony. It is like a prom. Dinner and Dancing and the senior parents are to be there. We had to have two dresses this year. The formal for yesterday and a semi formal tonight.
I can't wait to scrap these pictures. I was going to actually started to do that today but didn't feel mich like it. See I am fighting what I believe to be a double ear infection. No I have not made it to the dr yet. But plan on it very soon.
So off to nap before the big dinner.

Stress is beginning. Brittany informed me yesterday there are 40 days left till graduation. But only 14 days of class. Which means I am running out of time to make these announcements. I think I have one picked but still deciding. This weekend is the Coronation Ceremonies. It is exciting but kind of not looking forward to it. I am going to have to invest in some really good waterproof mascara. When i attended last year those kids weren't even mine and I cried. So... and I can just imagine what graduation is going to be like. I will post a picture of the card when I decide which one to use.
Everyone have a stampin scrappin happy day. I am off to school to hear all those sweet children audition for the show next week....

Good day all my fellow scrappers. I have been working in my room the last few days. As you could see I needed to get organized. I have moved things around and actually don't feel like I am too packed now.
I finished Easter cards and wanted to show you.
I thought they turned out cute. Today I am working on future recipe swaps. I will post them when I am done. As for now here is the Easter card.

Recipe is simple I used my Cricut to cut the letters, basket, eggs and bunny head.
Hope you enjoy.
Till Later.

Happy scrappin and stampin,

Well after looking at the pictures I posted last night I decided to get busy and get things moved around and cleaned up. So I spent about 3 hours rearranging and weeding out today. I hope to finish it tomorrow. I have a list of things to get done this week which include Easter cards that need to go out no later than Tuesday.
So I will be taking pictures with my new Cannon camera and will be posting them very soon. I got some new ideas on the Internet last night.

Okay some of you have been asking to see my studio. I am in the process of organizing and such but I guess these can be the before pictures. I told my hubby I wanted a bigger room when we move and he agreed. Now I guess when hunting for the new house this summer I will have to find the perfect studio space. ha ha I know I can't go smaller..
Okay here you go. I will be posting a few things I am working on probably tomorrow or Monday. But enjoy the mess for now and if you have any questions feel free..
