Card Challenge

If you are a card maker then I have a challenge for you. Actually 2RedBananas has a challenge for you and is offering some bling as a prize for the randomly selected winner. Just make a new card using either your favorite stamp you always grab or your favorite stamp of the moment. Then post it on The winner will get to choose any 2 Shimmerz or Blingz that 2RedBananas carries. Here is my card. I make a lot of birthday cards so I used a stamp from a set by Hero Arts and then the brackets are new from Quickuzt. I also added a little bling that you can purchase from 2RedBananas. Have fun with the challenge. It movtivated me to make another card as well.

Banana News

Well, now I can tell you why I started my blog. My friend Jeanette has started her own on line store called It is now open and ready for orders! What's so exciting is that they will have an exclusive line of stamps plus lots of other fun things (ribbon, bling, chipboard). She asked me to be on the design team so I will be using some new products and posting examples here. This is my first page and I used everything from 2RedBananas. The paper and journaling card are Websters, chipboard is Maya Road, Bling from Robins Nest and I also got the stamp and ribbon from her site. Take a minute to visit the site and bookmark it for future purchases!

Holiday Party

Well I scrapped a little this week end but don't have pictures yet to post. That is something I will have to get use to. Taking pictures of my pictures. Seems funny. I went to a crop with some friend and got two pages done and then the next day at home by myself I got three pages done. Maybe too much talking and not enough scrapping. But I had a great week end. Went to a holiday party at some special friends - Doug and Tanya. It was their first party they hosted together as a "married couple". So I was going to scrap it for them. I took lots of pictures of the house and guest and then I realized when I got home that I didn't take a picture of them. This is a picture of some of my friends and then they actually insisted that they take a picture of me. Can you imagine that there will be a picture of me in the scrap book. Of course it's not the best, my eyes look kinda squinty but its a picture of me. Woo Hoo

December 9, 2008 First Blog Attempt


This is my first blog posting and i don't have any idea what I am doing. I'm just playing around to start. I don't have a lot to say yet and will probably have to ask for help to get more exciting things on my blog. Please be patient.
