About Me

My photo

I am married to a Great Guy - Charlie.  We have a beautiful daughter, Charese, who is a JOY to have.  We love the outdoors, watching movies, reading and I love scrapbooking and cardmaking.  There are other hobbies as well.  I love to meet new people and share my love of scrapbooking and cardmaking with people.

Card In A Box -

This is a new item that I made.  The pictures here are my 2nd time - I had to make a practice run you know.  I am so very excited with how it turned out and how REALLY simple it was to make.  Yeah you heard me simple.  I was worried at first it looked complex, however after some research and few you tubes I found it wasn't complex at all.  The hardest part is figuring out where and what embellishments you are adding.  (also the fun part)  The business card in these pictures will be replaced with a gift card.  I like that they fold and fit in a envelope.  This is my first real nice one I completed I will be making 60 some of these here in the next couple weeks.  My daughter and friends will be helping.  Hope you enjoy and I hope you will try one of these.
This is the Card in a Box - the business card will be a gift card.

WOW 2016 here already!

I am going to try and get to all my resolutions this year.  Lots of scrapbooking ones.  My daughter will soon be 15 years old and I am only finishing her 2 year albums.  As you can see I need to move a long a little faster.  I am making plans, hoping to follow through and have a successful 2016.

What are your goals for 2016?  Please share.

I find it helps if you write them, perhaps create a vision board.  Maybe I will try both.

This year I am going to break my goals out a little more.
