A Quick Post

Happy weekend everyone! Hope you are all good! Things are great here. We went to dinner with some good friends on Friday night at Rodizio Grill - yum, yum!! We went to my sister, Miriam's graduation yesterday, and today we went to our friends, Marci and Gary's son, Shane's 3rd birthday party. So it's been busy but definitely fun!

I did get a little crafty on Thursday when I was watching Vampire Diaries! I love that show! It was a good episode, even though the ending got a little cheesy. But I completely enjoyed it! Are you guys just as excited as I am for fall T.V. to be back on! Can't wait for Grey's Anatomy to come on this week for sure! I watched the season finale again and even though I knew what was going to happen, I totally cried like I hadn't ever watched it before. I am a sucker for drama!

Now onto the craftiness!

Here is what I made:

Hope the pictures aren't too bad, they are from my phone. I am having problems with my camera's memory card right now.

All the supplies used are Stampin' Up! except for the brown and white bakers twine. When I first signed up to be a demonstrator - in 2006 - I was not a fan of their patterned paper. I am so happy to say that is no longer the case! I love how they have started to coordinate stamps and papers and accessories. The company has done very well in staying up to date with trends while still offering the quality images for stamps that has made them successful.

Here are the supplies I used:

Cardstock - Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Patterned Paper - Elegant Soiree
Stamps - Always, {clear mount}
Inks - Basic Gray, Early Espresso
Punches - Itty Bitty flower, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border
Accessories - Designer Buttons Neutrals & Jewels Basic Rhinestones
Foam Adhesive - Dimensionals
Twine - brown and white bakers twine

As you can see I made a set of 2 cards. I can't just make one card anymore! I always have to make at least 2! Sometimes I make a set of 3 or 4 even. I think I might as well so that I don't end up with scraps that I won't ever use.

So remember how just 2 posts ago, I was totally complaining about my Ipod calling it quits... Well for our anniversary, guess what I got! A brand new 160GB Ipod Classic!! Thanks Thong! I love it of course! I was thinking about getting the 64GB Ipod Touch, but I can't justify getting the smaller one when I had the biggest size already - even with the extra stuff you get with the Touch. So I am slowly building my library of music back up on my Ipod. I am so excited to have it back :-).

One last thing before I go. I wanted to give you crafty gals a link to my crafty soul mate - Amber -project that got featured on one of our most favorite blogs!!!! Yay! So cool Amber! Here is the link to Tatertots And Jello!! Her project is the Halloween Haunted House. I absolutely love it! It is making me want to do a Halloween house instead of the Christmas village for sure! So go and check out Amber's blog, her house and Tatertots and Jello! You won't be disapointed!
