It has finally come!!! What? I am so glad you asked...SUMMER or at least a few days of hotter weather. Now, I normally do not like hot weather, but I am so willing to make an exception this year since we have had an overabundant amount of wet and cold weather. I know, it is OREGON, and I do love this place, BUT can anyone say TOO MUCH?!

Another finally...our laptop finally bit the dust. Bye bye old friend. We went and purchased a new laptop yesterday and promptly found quite a few of our programs are not compatible to the Windows 7. I ordered a new Design Studio from Amazon for $19 which actually isn't bad. I can not be without a Design Studio.

Every month I will purchase another program to add to the lost programs. I did do something smart however. The old laptop was making weird sounds last week so I though I better back up once more the recent photos and files. Whew!!! Dodged a bullet on that. BTW found and bought a great new Flash Drive for saving photos. It is called Picture Keeper. I bought the Flash Drive that holds 4,000 photos. It also has saved my digital papers and embellishments I have bought.

To Blog or Not to Blog...

I love to read others blogs and get bummed if they skip a day or two or three. Now I don't know if people are really reading my blog...I think there are a few...and maybe more would if I blogged more.

So my Summer resolution is to blog more and that will make me create more. I still am waiting for 150 followers. When I hit that mark I have some blog candy to give away. Want some?

Busy, Busy

This month is full of classes and I am having so much fun. I love creating and here is a peek at this month's class project using the Accent Essentials cartridge. I love this cartridge because of all the shapes it has and the many ways you can use them. How about a mini-album?

I love the Spirelli Medallion technique I learned over at:

She has the most amazing ideas!!! Check out her blog.

I decided to take off the bow closure and it looks a lot better. I will take another photo with it off. More later...

Is it June already?

I have a great excuse fro not being around...Scrapbook Fun Fest has pretty much taken over our life for a month. All of us have been taking care of all the little details and we did an amazing job. Whoo Hoo to Janice & Gary of Roseburg Book and Stationery, Karen, and of course my wonderful husband Rod.

I have included a few photos of the event and our booth. We had 216 croppers and I still have to figure out how many Walk and Shoppers, but all our vendors want to come back so they must have done as good as we did in our little booth. Did I mention Rod is the King of our Bargain Bin?
He was filling it up constantly throughout the day.

Seven Feathers Casino Resort has the greatest group of people you can imagine. Anything and everything we needed they were there to help and get it for us. We couldn't have done the event without them.

I am now taking online classes to be certified with SDU (Scrapbook Design University) through EK Success so I can teach Scrapbook classes at Michael's here in Roseburg. More later...
