or should I say Happy Birth-month? You know my DD-IL-KC loves to celebrate her B-day. I hope she has a nice one and spoils herself.

Hope my DS-JL had a good day at work and a wonderful time at dinner. I just love their chopped salad. I hope our rendition of Happy Birthday and the Wiggle song set the stage for a good day. Did anyone make a funfetti cake? Love you and miss you lots!

Good Saturday

Spent a very busy day, started by making breakfast for BB, BL & KC. BB took BL to get his car inspected, then we went back and bought a new SUV for BB (we will pick it up on Tues). I call it instant replay. Same car, same color for the next 39 months. Didn't like any of the other colors. Took a trip to Steinmart (BB calls it the Jewish Walmart), out to lunch, back home cut down branches from the oak tree, planted 3 azaleas and a holly bush, cooked dinner made chocolate chip cookies (refrigerator kind), talked to G-ma and now I need to make a card for Ang. Did manage to get a picture of KC's birthday card before I gave it to her. Tomorow is the K&K show. At least today was fun!
KC's card was made with 1 sheet of 12 x 12 double sided paper. It was cut to 9.5 x 12 and folded to create 2 pockets. I cut the tags from the leftover paper.
Just an early Happy Birthday Eve to my DS-JL. Hope you had a good dinner tonight, talk to you in the AM. Love you all and miss you!

Not that I have done any crafting. My hands are a little full right now. Hopefully I will be able to post some b-day cards soon. I also need a baby card, shower card, sympathy card and thank you note. Then come the May b-days and graduations and mothers' day. Made CA reservations tonight. Very long and arduous process, nothing is ever simple. Congrats to my DD who is being very creative, how about my DDIL-KL? Looking forward to seeing your new stuff. I know you've been to Archivers!!!! Miss you all!

To clarify...

The dark pink layer shows behind the light pink layer and the printed cardstock layer. It not only borders it at the top and bottom, but when the book is open the front two layers stand away from the pink layer and you can see the whole dark pink page. Should I stamp the dark pink layer with a versamark ink and a background stamp, or will it be too much? You know I have a hard time with blank space. Is that clearer than mud?

Star Book, need opinion

The first is the book open. Right now it is being held with paperclips. The last is the front & back cover which need to also be glued on. The question is should I put a background stamp on the dark pink layer? When you see it IRL you can look down the top and see the blank page. Would it look overdone or does it now look unfinished?

We miss you too!

I had a great time

It was the first show I went to that I actually did a make and take and didn't run through. Maybe we got the DD interested in stamping!!!! What next? Cards????? Got the scor-it after all my searching for the scor-pal. I played last night a little and love the clean lines. I got too hungry (translate: cranky) to wait to go to that little tea house. It was 2:30 and I was afraid we would get there and it would be closed. So we ate at TGIF. We'll have to save the E-town cafe for another girls day. Have yard duty today. BB cut lots of branches off the trees by the street and now it is time to bundle them. Outside bad, inside good. Enjoy your day! PS to my DDIL-KL, we called you because we miss you and that's the way we show our love, teasing!!!!!

Saturday Fun

It's a girls' day in PA. My DD and I are going to a stamp show in Allentown and then out to lunch in E-town. This show was the one J and I went to when she was at school, but because of engagement parties and showers have missed for the last 2 years. Only wish our other partner in scrappin was here to go with us. I think we'll call her this morning just because....

Pointing Fingers!!!

My DD has told me I've not updated my blog...her exact words were"Last I read you're still in King of Prussia." Very funny, but if you check my blog date and the blog dates on my other two loved ones' blogs, I am the most current. Had a very nice time with BL & KC this weekend. I'm sure they'll figure it out when they have to move from their lovely abode NEXT MONTH. The K&K show was pleasantly uneventful. My SIL even said good morning to me. It's still stressful in FLA. Try to check in with her from time to time. Thanks. Hope C-land and E-town are treating you well. Love you and miss you all.

Just a tease!

Have to go pick up a shower present tonight in KOP, so BB suggested eating a burger at Ruby's. Sounded good to me, how about you DS-JL?
