Dabblin' Demos Secret Sister

On SCS (Splitcoaststampers), the demo only side we have Secret Sisters. We are in Round 8 (my first time participating) and I’m loving everything about it! It where we pick a certain amount we want to spend ($15 or $20) in 4 months and we are given a name and an address and we send stuff to them (aka little sister). I have a big sister that sends stuff to me. Its either $5 in gifts a month or one big gift at the end of the four months and that is when we reveal ourselves! We are also required to send either one card a month or two cards a month (depending on what Group you chose). It is really fun and nice to get things in the mail! Well here is what I’ve received since July 15th!

This is a 6x6 layout of my daughter...if you know her she loves her Care Bears or any stuffed animal for that matter! Ever since she was about 18 months she lined everything in a row! If something wasn't facing the right way she'd have to move it so it was facing the right way. She is still like that to this day! She makes me laugh! I love her so much!

The colors were really hard for me to work with...too much color in the photo, but didn't want to make it a black and white and take a way from the colors of the Care Bears. I used Always Artichoke and Blush Blossom. I used the slit punch to make the scalloped edges (Blush Blossom) and then I stamped the definition of delight from Define Your Life stamp set in VersaMark and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing powder. The title is from the Happiness Background stamp stamped in Always Artichoke and cut out. I love both of these stamp sets!

It's been a while since I have posted i thought I would post the cards we will be making for my Stamp Club. Made the first card with some new stamps I got from my preview order and the new In Colors! The other card is a set that was in a Mini Catalog but made it to the 2007 Fall/Winter Catalog. Thanks for looking.

It's about time!

My husband and I went camping a couple weeks ago and our girls stayed with his Mother! She's been getting after us for months to go get their pictures taken (she has current pictures of all her other Grandchildren and she wants current ones of the girls)! We are horrible, we took pictures of Katryce (the oldest) when she was three months old and that was it! Well, besides the candids from Birthdays and stuff like that.

So while we were camping she took the girls and got their pictures taken at JcPenny's! What a wonderful Mother! If she hadn't done it for us they still wouldn't be done! This is just one of the pictures that they printed off, but so far I think it's my favorite!
