Hello I know I have been not posting as much as I always do but heres the scoop....I have had my same laptop since 2006, well I have dumped my pics into an external hardrive and I still was out of room, well not only that, my computer has been on life support...no joke here since last year. The screen went out on it, so I had to hook it up to a old heavy monitor then one day I let Cooper watch A Bug's Life by Disney which I purchased for him from I-Tunes and bam he decided to tear the keys up on the laptop, in like less than five minutes. Well hubby brought home a keyboard that evening for me. Since it really is OLD in computer lives....early 2006. It was so slow and some sites I couldn't even go on or leave comments because I couldn't add anything else to it. So now hopefully hubby will take the hints and get me a new computer!!!! Anywhoooo I am uploading a project I did using SpellBinder's, I used the circle Scallops Nestibilities and took the smallest sizes and ran thru the wizard, and fan folded the one circle, then fan folded the same size five times and then folded them over to create the one flower, glue together each side, use a thinner paper it really works best than the thicker ones. Everything is SpellBinders, the cardstock is Bazzill. The bling in the middle of the flowers are Prima. The stamps are Studio G (the ones you get for a buck)I jsut love that. I began stamping in the early 90's and there was no such thing a $1 stamp, they were all wood mounted, sometimes you get get the rubbers at a rubber stamp show and stick them on any wood piece you could get. I still have all these stamps, and love using them...but I do love scrapping my pics. I try to incorporate more stamps into my los....any way gotta go Dusty is crying..woke up out of his sleep.. take care, Dawn

Hello and Good Day!! Not your typical Monday here at my house, with the Holiday, the boys are all home from school and it has been a busy one. Legos are everywhere and every 10 seconds, its look momma, look what I just built. Last night I could not sleep....which is not like me...I am so tired when I lay down that's it!! So I got up and decided to scrap and here is what I did. I have just fallen all over these cardboard alphas from Rusty Pickle...and have used them in several places now, I better call Alaina and Jeri and tell them to send me more...I am running out....I also have a few projects I have not revealed using them so stay tuned!!! All weekend I had four extra girls at the house with my dd Alexis who is 20 and in college.....so didn't get to post anything yesterday..like I planned. Anyway....I cut the cardboard up from a box sent to me with Rusty Pickle product.....and some easy ways to do this are leave your box outside overnight, the moisture in the air will help you peel it off, or peel off the top coat and take your scissors and push up the valleys in the cardboard and then continue to peel, and one more method is to mist the cardboard then peel...if you have any ideas share them. Then I layered the pics and the pp, the pp is Rusty Pickle Chocolate Covered Cherries, which I am so out of it too. I used leftovers here and the flower pic I bought at ACMoore, the trims, the buttons, the tag all Rusty Pickle. Of course the cardboard alphas are RP, too!! The cardboard heart was cut from a regular heart punch, how cool is that!! The ticket is Jenni Bowlin. TFL!! Have a Wonderful Afternoon, Dawn
(Oh btw it is not crooked irl, that was just operator error..lol!! I will fix tomorrow. Sorry.
