Happy Halloween

Hi Stampers,

I hope everyone had a safe and Happy Halloween.  Our kids had so much fun this year trick-or-treating, and Blake really enjoyed his Halloween party at school.

For the treat bags you can bet I had to make them using my big shot!  The boys had pumpkins and the girls got witches.

The kids loved them!  Here is a picture of Blake with his teacher, Mrs. K.

For Halloween Blake was a lego and Callie Ann was a puppy!

And here's the whole family on Halloween Night. . . .

Mattoxx's Birthday

Hi Stampers,

Last week was my nephew Mattoxx's 1st birthday and you can bet I had to make him a card.  The theme was Mickey Mouse, so I searched for a Mickey card and found one using "punch art". . . I just knew I wanted to case it and here's what I came up with.

And here's a picture of the birthday boy with his mom and dad.

Wilhelmina's Birthday Card

Hi Stampers,

Last night Blake brought home a birthday invitation for Wilhelmina's 6th birthday party . . . she is a girl in his kindergarten class.  Since we will be at the Caulkins' family reunion during party time he can't go.  Bless his heart he wanted to take a birthday card to her, and he wanted it to have a "barbie" on it.

Well as you know Stampin' Up! does not have any barbie stamps since they are trademarked. . . but we have a stamp set called, Little Princess, that I knew would work!

Since it was for a girl I had to go with Pretty in Pink for the main color. . . add a little ribbon and rhinestones for bling and it was done!

What do you think?  I think it turned out so cute that card club members might be making one just like it this month!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Hello, Doily!

Hi Stampers,

Just a reminder that the mini catalog goes until August 31st, so if you have something on your wish list you'll want to get it before then.  You can view the mini catalog at the top left side of my blog.

ALSO  The deadline for the Super Cute Button Bracelet class is August 30th. . . you can view all of the details HERE. (Please note demos are welcome to attend. . . just sent me an e-mail at for those details.)

Today I'd like to share with you a card made using the stamp Hello, Doily.  Better than the real thing, this intricate doily design comes in all colors since you can stamp it in any of our inks! Use this gorgeous artwork with other coordinating products from our Flirtatious suite.

The stamp was embossed with clear embossing powder then I used a sponge dauber to make it "pop"!

The birthday phrase comes from the Hostess Set, Happiest Birthday Wishes!

Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for stopping by!


p.s.  Before I go I almost forgot to share with you a couple of pictures from the weekend.  My family took a road trip up to "Chicagoland" to see and ride on Thomas the Train!  Even though it rained on us for about 1 1/2 hours we still had a great time!

Here's Blake with Thomas the Train . . . he was excited to wear a rain coat.

And here's our wet family on the train. . . . we all had rain coats, but Rocky was the only one who didn't take his off on the ride.

And here's a picture after the rain came to a stop . . .

Flight of the Butterfly

Hi Stampers,

As I blog today Miss Callie Ann and I are outside on the porch enjoying the wonderful weather.  Blake is at school (the 1st full day) and we are looking forward to a girl's morning.  I'm hoping Blake has a great day at school, as it did not start off very well.  He took a very nasty fall off of the spider web at school face first down into the rocks. . . . it broke my heart. :o(

Today I'd like to share with you a card using the stamp set Flight of the Butterfly.  It is a card my club members made this past month.

Button Bracelet . . .SUPER CUTE!!!

Hi Stampers,

Today I'd like to share with you the button bracelet I made this past week.  It is super cute, and not hard to make once you get your first one done.  For this bracelet I used 30 buttons from Stampin's Up! bright family.  You can make two bracelets from one package of buttons.

And here's how they turned out.

Here is a smaller version I made for Callie Ann.  I tired to take a picture with it on her, but she did not want to sit still.

Let me know if you are interested in attending a class to make the button bracelets. . . I would love to put that on my calendar.

Family Update

Hi Stampers,

I feel so bad that I can't blog more often, but family comes first.  Today I'd like to just give you a little family updated. 

Tuesday my oldest child, Blake starts kindergarten.  He is so very excited and LOVES his Scooby Doo Lunch box. . . it's the Mystery Machine, and it is pretty awesome.  It does not seem possible that he is going to be in grade school.  I'm sure before I know it he'll be entering his senior year. . . . sniff . . . sniff! I better get started on those scrapbooks for his graduation open house. LOL!

Little Miss Callie Ann is now 14 months old and into EVERYTHING!!!  She also LOVES to climb.  It is a daily event to take her down from the dinning room table, as she's pulled out a chair and is standing on the table.  I did bring up a little tykes slide, in hopes of turning all of her attention to climbing on that.  Sometimes it works, and other times the table is where you'll find her.

Just this past week I took the kids to Niabi Zoo for the morning.  We had a nice cool day for it and the animals were out and the lions were roaring!  Here are a few of pictures from our outting!

I have exciting news!!!  Next February Callie Ann will no longer be the baby of the family. . . #3 is due February 15th!  There are LOTS of things that we need to get figured out before then. . . but I keep telling myself we have time. :o)

Thanks for taking time to read about my children. . . Rocky and I think they are pretty special!

~ Georgia

P.S.  As you can see from my post a couple of days ago I'm starting a Marker Club, let me know if you are interested.  I also have plans to start a scrapbook club,  which will meet once a month at my home to make a two page 12x12 layout.  Details will follow soon!
