I was very lucky to be able to play with the new June kit from the Paper Passion. It featured October Afternoon Cherry Hill papers and all sorts of yummy embellishments.
I hear the kit will be released very soon. I can't wait to see the extra add ons that there are for the kit too.

what a busy few weeks it's been. between work and.... well, work, I have had the stuffing knocked out of me. I have realized that the answer to me feeling bad (besides about 14 hours of uninterupted sleep)is to create some scrapbook pages. I was lucky enough to be sent the June Paper Passion kit (oh yeah baby, can you say cherry hill by October Afternoon?) That kit was what I needed to snap me right out of my funk. I think the kit is going to be released on Saturday. I can't show you anything I did with the kit yet.... but I will very soon. for now, how about this simple LO that I did of my FIL. even though the photo isn't focused, it makes me laugh everytime I see it. I love that photo. I think we would all be a little bit better off if we could really laugh more don't you?

it seems all I am doing these days is working and recovering from work. my goodness! it doesn't help that we are having a baby boom where I work either. holy cow, you just wouldn't believe it if I told you.
I am determined to get some work done with the new June kit from The Paper Passion. Rosa sent it to me this week and it is so yummy. I was lucky enough to get a little work done with some Jillibean soup. it is really a fun line and much easier to work with than I thought at first. See all the white space? that was for a fun challenge at The Paper Passion... come check it out and play with us.
well, I am off.... hopefully it won't be so long until the next installment here......

I am in the middle of my schedule of shifts so it limits my creativity..... darn. I did come up with a tip though. I just received a Bazzill in stitchz template from the paper passion.... what great rhinestone and pearl flourishes you can make with it. here is a link to the flourish template that I am talking about.... check it out

just a another day or 2 to get all your creations into The Paper Passion's very first crop. wow there were so many challenges. There was something there to appeal to everyone.
last night I went to an annual plant sale. I went with my brother and sister in law and my niece Cassidy. Although we got more last year, this year was good and I stocked up on alliums and another fern leaf peony and I even got a nice gift for my mother in law for when we go to visit next weekend. It's a date for next year's sale!!

remember I posted about the guest designer at the Paper Passion??? I am so thrilled and honoured to have been picked. I am SO excited to work with these ladies. It is pretty exciting to be at such a nice site working with such talented people. oh, did I mention the store??? I swear on a pile of smarties that this store has the cheapest prices I have ever seen either brick and mortar or on line..... this might be a bad thing too :)
come on over and check out The Paper Passion and tell Rosa that Jenn sent ya!!

it's May 1st. that date makes me very excited. I love May!! My garden comes back to life and that is one of my big passions. I wander about looking for life and I am amazed every year that the plants have returned. We have lots of maples on our little property and I love watching them come back to life too. Hubby planted an oak last fall and I am really excited to see that come back to life. I am not familiar with how oaks start in the spring so I go out and check the oak tree all the time for signs of life. The photo is of hubby and my brother planting the oak last fall. it was a really big tree to plant.... probably the biggest we have planted so far..... man, we love a challenge don't we! I am such a country girl at heart!!
May 1st has me excited for another reason..... the guest designer contest closed last night at the Paper Passion and is being announced today. I applied..... wish me luck!! they are a great group of girls and whoever gets to be their guest designer for the next 2 months is increadibly fortunate. The first ever crop is also starting today at the Paper Passion..... you gotta check it out.... it is going to be soooooo much fun.
