September 29, 2011

Look up the word exhausted in the dictionary and find a picture of me.  Or for that matter I would also be pictured by busy, rushed, and flustered.  But I do love my life.

Holy...its been a while

Good Morning Everyone, it has been quite a while since I have had the opportunity to update Scrapadoodledoo. 

Summer has been a very busy time for me.  We hold a yearly reunion out at our cabin each year and each year it appears to grow.  This year was no different.  It was great being able to see relatives that we havent seen in a very long time and to meet some relatives that we havent met in the past. I am so looking forward to next years. 

Summer has also been a time when I get to participate in another favorite pass time of mine, quadding.  We have been on four largers quadding trips this year.  The first was on May long weekend and we went to Swan Hills, Alberta.  The second was on the July long weekend and we went to Medicine Lake, Alberta.  The third was to Grande Prairie Albert on the weekend of August 18-20th, and finally on the September long weekend to Medicine Lake again.  As we are relatively new quadders (only starting last year), some of these trips possed some great challenges and we thoroughly enjoyed each trip.  We also go quadding at the cabin every opportunity we get to. 

My other favorite pass time has been a bit neglected over the summer.  That pass time being scrapping.  I have done work for both of the design teams I am on, but haven't had any time to scrap for myself.  That will change this weekend though.  I am going to a staff only cop on Saturday night and plan to do some great work for myself.  With how busy the summer has been, I have some great photo's that need to be scrapped. 

I have had a great time working on my projects with APOS.  I have been involved in the Christmas in July Card Challenge as well as two inspiration challenges.  I have been trying to upload the photo's from my work computor, but have failed.  I will post them tomorrow night from my home computor.  We have also started Scrapbuilding again, and my turn is coming up.  I always love this activity. 

We have a wonderful event coming up in October but you will have to wait to get more details.  What I can tell you is that you wont want to miss it.

I have also been very busy on the Design Team at Creative Scrapbooks here in Edmonton.  We have just completed the second Cookbook in the cookbook club and are getting ready for the next.  The next one is with the new BoBunny paper and I have named the Cookbook "Sweet Treats."  This cookbook will be followed by the last one in the series, which will be a Christmas Cookie , cookbook. 

I have also designed a Country Christmas Card Class being held on October 26 at Creative Scrapbooks.  I will post pictures of both tomorrow evening as well.

And there is some fantastic news coming about a Christmas event at Creative Scrapbooks as well.  More info to follow on this event as well.

Well it was nice catching up will all of you and you will see another posting from me tomorrow evening. Take Care!!!

Blog Hop

Welcome to the APOS! blog hop!
If you arrived here from JEN then you are on the right track. If you’ve arrived here by accident,then go here APOS! Facebook page discussion to start at the beginning. Don't have facebook, that is okay, just hop on over to DIANA and go from there.
I think you’re really going to enjoy seeing what each of the APOS! Inspiration Team have come up with using their chosen products.

To participate in the blog hop (and maybe win some candy) is so easy! Visit each inspiration team member’s blog and leave a comment. You will get one entry into a draw for some pretty amazing blog candy just for visiting and leaving a comment at each Inspiration Team Member’s blog. Posting the picture of this candy on your own blog,along with a link back to APOS! will earn you another entry into the draw (just make sure to leave a comment letting us know that you added the link!). Adding yourself as a follower to any of the team members or 'liking' APOS! on facebook, another entry is yours!

Do you want to know what you’re hopping for? This is what you are playing for... a small something from your choice of one of the inspiration teams choice of papers/products!!!
So with all that being said now on to what i have done. We were all given this sketch to work our magic on.

I chose the My Minds Eye line of papers for my sketch and more specifically the Lost and Found line. I have found this line to be one of my favourite all time lines as it works so well with the numerous heirloom types of layouts I do. In this layout I also used some cardstock, four brown brads, some green ribbon and black ink to outline all of the pieces other than the photo’s.

Next stop for you will be KELSEY
Again thanks for hopping by.
