Scrapfest Oshawa 2012

Last weekend I, along with Chelle and Laurie, was helping Christa in the Scraptures booth at Scrapfest in Oshawa. We had such a good time. Here are a few pictures from the weekend...sorry about the quality, they are from my phone.

Friday night, just before the doors opened
L to R: Laurie, Chelle & Christa

Christa teaching a make and take

Christa with her "Minions" (at a craft show recently, someone asked me if I owned Scraptures & I said "No, Christa does, we (pointing to Chelle & I) are just her minions!"...and thus the Scraptures Minions were born! She did not know that we had made the t-shirts until Saturday when we took our hoodies off at the show!

Post-Scrapfest drinks at Kelsey's

Christa with her birthday dessert. The wait staff even sang Happy Birthday to Christa....much to her chagrin. She turned a lovely shade of pink...about the same as her shirt. :)

All in all it was a wonderful weekend with my Besties & I can't wait for the Kitchener show in April.

Back at Scrappin'!

Well, I have finally been feeling creative lately (as evidenced by finally posting since June). I decided Friday night to work on some of the weekly challenges over at Scraptures. I picked the Finally Friday challenge from October 12. Here is my finished layout.

Thanks for looking!

Card Swap

Over at Scraptures, we hold a monthly card swap. Members sign up and are given only know who you are making the cards for, not who is making you cards. Each month is themed and this month's theme was fall leaves. You could interpret that any way you liked...colour, leaves, etc.

I was given our fearless leader's name, Christa. Here is the card that I made for her...

Yesterday I got my card in the mail...YAY...happy mail! It was a lovely step card made by Amy (aka stuck@home). Here is her card.

If you are interested in participating in the card swaps, head on over to the Scraptures forum, register (we always love getting new friends) and sign up. The sign up for November will likely go up in the next week or so.

Thank for looking!

More Step Cards

I had to make 2 1ST Birthday Cards for this weekend....our friend's twins are turning one! So hard to believe. Here are the cards that I made for them.

Should keep this short, as I'm getting ready to head off to Scrapfest in Oshawa with Scraptures. Should be a great weekend.

Happy World Card Making Day!

Totally forgot that this was today. Thank goodness I needed to make some cards for the party tonight.

This first one is a birthday card for DH's uncle (whom the surprise party is for)

The second is for DH's Aunt & Uncle's 45th wedding anniversary
