Swimming with Dolphins

Dennis and I were so lucky to have the opportunity to swim with dolphins when we were in Bermuda this week! His company took us on a 5 day amazing trip packed with excursions. I think this was our favorite for obvious reasons.

Raised Frame Card

Here's my attempt at a raised frame card. My SS girls and I saw a cute one at IAI last weekend so I thought I'd try my own.

First Try!

Here's my first try posting a digital layout. It was a pretty simple one of me and my mom.


I went on a SS scrapbooking retreat to Hamilton NY in September. I had a blast! I drove down with Pamela (5 hour ride) and spent Thursday nite thru Sunday afternoon with a great bunch of women. The area is beautiful and picturesque I got so much digital scrapbooking and downloading done! All I need is some uninterrupted time away and I accomplish so much! Here's a group pic of the New England girls who attended...

I love them all and had such a great time! I'll see you guys in November in Jackson, NH!!!

Here is one of the cards I made while in NY...

I love this card I made for a SS Card Swap for the Winter Group. I used a Cuttlebug folder for the embossing and borrowed this great tree stamp from Pamela. The ink is Kaleidecolor and I put glitter on the tree to look like snow glistening.

I'd love to show you one of the many layouts completed but I'm too computer stupid to figure it out yet.

I've entered the DIGITAL world!

I've switched over to digital scrapbooking as of a couple weeks ago! I LOVE IT! I went to CNY9 (scrapbooking retreat) with my laptop and card making supplies and learned so much! Thank God, Pamela has a computer brain or I'd still be lost trying to figure out how to upload all the tons of FREE digital kits that are out there. I still have alot to learn but CM Storybook Creater + is very user friendly and a perfect place for me to start. I have Photoshop on my laptop but I think it's totally over my head at this point. I've made so many layouts so now I need to learn how to get them printed. (Hint, hint...Pamela!)
