Weekend Wrap-up

Just Scrappin' Milford is in the books...Thank You ladies for the most wonderful and amazing weekend. I thought it went rather smoothly from treats to classes to great hotel staff and facilities.
Thank you to the ladies that put up with their sleep-deprived slightly distracted teacher...the handouts made a big difference I thought, next time, I will hang on to them until the very last class ;)
The food was delicious and I loved that the chef was so accomodating.

Not sure about the rest of you ladies but getting texts and pictures from my boys at a family function made my day too. This pic of them getting ready from my still my heart.
And then of course, finding this photo in my stash to scrap...boy do they grow up fast!
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Stay tuned for a Bazzill Buy and a newsletter in the next few days!!!

Weekend Wrap-up

Morning! I had the pleasure of spending an entire weekend at a hockey tournament with the family. Not being tongue in cheek or sarcastic...I was lucky there wasn't a crop scheduled that weekend and I could spend it with them. It was my first and an eye opener for sure. We were in Dover, NH and were in a hotel right in downtown - that was great as the kids could walk around and explore while we, the parents did the same thing. Plenty of great places to check out and eat at. My favorite place to eat was La Festa Brick & Brew Pizzeria with its pizza by the slice and cinnamon knots.

My favorite shot of my favorite player from the weekend...yikes!

Girlie Girls

There is just the one little girl in our family. Admittedly she is the princess of the house. Seriously though, how do you resist this face?
Since I shared teen boy products last month, I am going to share some girl products this month. Not necessarily teen girl but girlie girl products.
Baby Girl collection by Echo Park - love the addition of mint greens and browns
Another baby girl collection, this one by Carta Bella. This one has a beautifully muted vintage vibe to it.
Jack & Jill collection by Echo Park is perfect for little and not so little girls. Love that there is more than pinks in the color scheme.
This Princess collection is perfect for my little niece's photos. Must add to any scrap stash collection ;)
If the little girl in your life is into fairies, this line (Fairy Dust by Kaisercraft) is just perfect for it.
They're in stock and ready to go home with you. Let me know if you would like me to set a pack aside for you. Have a wonderful weekend!

Weekend wrap-up

I spent a wonderful weekend with the Cool Crops Crew and thoroughly enjoyed teaching the Crazy Birds card class to two amazing groups of ladies. It was a TON of fun getting messy with inks and the coloring was so calming.
 A couple of reviews from the class...
"This class is just awesome" and "I learned so much and had such a great time in your class"
Thank you ladies! I had a great time sharing my limited ink & water coloring knowledge with you.

 It was also a super cold Valentine's Day with the ladies. Good thing scrapbooking is in indoor sport ;)

Weekend wrap-up

This weekend consisted of hockey, basketball, shopping and more hockey...all on a Saturday. The highlight was Jori's basketball team won the championship by a point with a buzzer beater 3 pointer...after being down 25 points at the half. Exciting nail biter to say the least. Sunday we went to a late mass before coming home to get ready for our traditional Chinese New Year hot pot/shabu/steamboat dinner while watching the superbowl. It wasn't the most interesting or exciting game but dinner was delicious.
Today is the first day of the Chinese/Lunar New Year and we would like to wish you and yours a happy, healthy and prosperous year of the monkey!

Fave Finds: Lunar New Year & Valentine's edition

The Lunar New Year falls on February 8 so I thought I'd do a combination New Year & Valentine's edition Fave Finds post.
In love with these Lunar Animals stamp set from Mama Elephant
Maybe these Paper Fortune Cookies will make a dent in my paper stash. I'm thinking this would make a great gift in a takeout container filled with fun or inspirational quotes.
Some fun Chinese New Year traditions to boys' favorite are the hong bao's!
If you're into horoscopes, here is the Chinese Zodiac 2016 Horoscope
Can't go wrong with Free Valentine's Day printables to decorate with. 
Great ideas for a Valentine's day photo shoot...I especially like girl with umbrella photo series.
Another great sketch on the Sketchabilities blog...too bad they shut it down in the fall.
Totally going to make these Star Wars Valentine's for my boys!
And for a yummy alternative to Pad Thai, try this Malaysian Char Koay Teow dish.
