Happy Sunday ALL!

It was a great garage sale yesterday at the store! I have a few kits left for the next one!

I still feeling blaaaaaaaaa, but this picture of Seby (my nephew Sebastiano) pretty much put a big smile on my face this morning! My sister sent us a batch of picture, he is getting so big! Also good news is that they are coming in September to visit for the first time. My sister, Seby and Lili my sister's SIL.

Meeting with Mellisa for brunch need to get ready!
Have a happy Sunday!

Getting Ready for the Yard Sale!

At the Scrapbox, this Saturday June 27th starting at 9 am we are hosting our second summer 2009 Edition of our very popular yard sales!

I have started the process of creating special kits ( up to 2 per collection) to sell. A mix of papers, ribbons, embellishments and dictionary pages.... all matching and perfect to create a few layouts with.

I have also made separate packs of 1 tag filled up with special ribbons from my personal collection! Lace and Trims Delight I have decided to call them!

I will work hard to find the perfect little treasures to create a big bunch of them for Saturday!

The pictures are not the best due to the packaging! Sorry about that!

If you do not have any plans to your agendas Saturday, make sure to drop by!

A scrappy w-end!

Last weekend I was at the store scrapping a storm and was finally able to finish 3 layouts that were missing the embellishments.... Here they are....

The girls at the Spring event with Vicki Boutin

My new favorite pic with Stéphane, Yes I am using it non-stop!
Love the vintage buttons added here and there....

This one I wasn't too sure of the color combo, but now I love it!

The stamped quote is from one of Tim's Holtz sets and it's perfect for the title that I had put down 3 weeks ago prior to adding all the finishing touches...
" Life isn't about finding yourself
Life is about creating yourself".
And to complete a picture of Stéphane and me at the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival....
Just love it!

Have a great week, tonight it's my first card class, can't wait!
Tomorrow I have the last class of the "All about me series" #2 (5 to 12). A few spots left, if you wish to join call the store!

Posh Posies Jumbo Scallop Banner Album and a happy Friday to you!

I wanted to share a project that I completed a few weeks ago for Cansandra at Daisy Bucket with the colorful and fun paper collection called Posh Posies! It was really fun to play with the Jumbo Scallop Banners to create this album. The black and white pitures are perfect and I love all the lovely stamps they have and they are perfect not only for titles, but for making paper embellishments too!

Any big plans for your weekend?

I have a few on my side...

Cropping today after work till 11pm and tomorrow at the Scrapbox, I think both days are Sold Out.... but just in case you wish to join us over the w-end, call the store to verify if their is still a place for you at 613-745-2215. I am planning on working on one of my upcoming class for July - Tattered Angels Jumbo Banner Album, finishing 3 layouts that I add started at the last crop and just creating more stuff (ATC's, a few cards and layouts are on my "TO DO " list)!

I wanted to wish a Beautiful Father's Day weekend to all Dads!

Spécialement pour toi papa, car je sais que tu viens visiter mon blog à l'occassion... Passe une belle fin de semaine et profite du temps de qualité avec la famille au Nouveau Brunswick. Je penserai spécialement à toi Dimanche. Bisous, ta grande princesse qui t'aime XoX

Hugs and have a wonderful w-end!

A fun scrapping w-end!

A fun, creative w-end!

Friday it was a fabulous evening! $510 raised for Katie's SIL team that will be walking for the Cure. Read more soon on Katie's blog!

I had almost nothing with me except photos and paper....and did 3 - 60% completed layouts...! Let me explain. OK It's true I don't pack light usually and get practically nothing done, so this may be the new way to do it! Paper and pics... and then embellish at home!

Saturday was the Ultra Pampered Crop at the store. Katie and Louise were also part of the fun! We created, giggled with Kathy, Cindy and Liz... just had a blast! I had brought more embellishments as I new I was staying longer... (up to 2am) and completed 2 of the 3 layouts started the day before. 3 more needs to be embellished... and will do that during this week. I also finished my All about me #3 (will be officially posted in this week news letter from Jenn and will post it after).

Here are the completed layouts of this weekend!

Enjoy your week
