Here's a little sneak of my make-n-take for this weekend:

We will be making a Home Wall Decoration. Participants will need to be approved members of the message board and they will need to gather these supplies:

-8x10 frame in desired color

-people chipboard (you can get this at Scraptacular)
-home themed paper and/or embellishments (I am using Pink Paislee chipboard but there is also a whole line of paper made by Three Bugs in a Rug that would work. Both can be purchased from Scraptacular.)
-Large and small letter stickers ( I am using Thickers and the small letter stickers that come in the Pink Paislee sticker books.)

It's a nice sunny day here in PA and I can't wait to get out and enjoy the weather! I think maybe I'll try to teach B to ride a bike today.

Have a great one!

Online Crop This Weekend!

I am sooo psyched for Scraptacular's online crop this weekend. There are going to be so many prizes given away, so many fun games, and so many challenges to get you scrapping! We will also be doing some make-n-takes that are too cute. And don't forget the grand prize for the weekend: $50 in Fancy Pants goodies! I can't wait to see everbody's scrappy projects.

If you're not already signed up for the Message board, hurry over so you can join in the fun starting on Friday April 3rd!

Yesterday I got my hands on Photoshop cs2 and i am absolutely loving it! I went to a website that has lots of free actions at http://atncentral.com/download.htm and downloaded so many cool ones like Aly's Vintage, Burnt Edges, Whiten and lots more. For those of you who don't know what actions are, they are a series of edits that you perform on a picture but instead of doing them all individually, they are all in one action so you only have to press one button. Makes my life so much easier!

Here's a picture I took of Bridgette yesterday before she got ready for her dance pictures. She said she was taking a cutie nap. I used the Burnt Edges and the Color Pop actions to tweak it a bit:

I did the same thing with this one:
I'll be back tomorrow with a little sneak of my make-n-take for the crop. Hint: to see it and some others now go to www.scraptacular.proboards.com ,login and look under online crops.
Have a great day!

Girl Scout Camping

Bridgette and I went camping this weekend at Camp Laughing Waters in Gilbertsville. Despite getting no sleep and having a lot of 'downtime' it was a great weekend of bonding for the two of us. B. made lots of crafts, played flashlight tag, sang lots of songs and made lots of new friends!

Here's a few pics:

A group shot of everybody who went in our troop.

Bridgette took this one of the mom's acting silly. She only got about half of us!

The girls!

Outside our cabin (yes, it was heated!)

Me on my bunk taken by B.

Making crafts

Playing some sort of switch partners game.

Making more crafts.

Playing card games in a neighbors bunk.
As much as I loved spending time with Bridgette, I don't know if I will do it again. I think I'll stick to enjoying nature through the windo of my nice warm house!
