Love Ride

The Annual Love Ride was moved this year to Pomona Fair grounds,,oh so close to home now. We had to ride out to Pasadena to have breakfast so that we could ride in with the crowd. We live about 10 min from the fairgrounds....It was different , but fun, alot more vendors. I did find the perfect bike for me ...check out this picture...of course with all that bling bling it would be right up my alley, and check out that skull on the helmet. Hey Santa, I have been really, really good this year!!!!!

Cute Bags

My scrappin Friend Mary gave this cute pattern to make these little bags. I made different ones , filled them up with candy and gave to the gals in the office. Aren't they cute ? You use a whole 12 x 12 piece of paper, score and fold , add ribbon and embellish..I think they would be cute for a Bridal shower or Baby shower, or even little Christmas gift bags, Mary made them and put a tea bag or hot chocolate bag in one side and a cute note card in the other side. I may just have to make some for the gals again!!!

Marah you ROCK!

I took this class at The Red Bee in Tustin, after all it was Marah she inspires me so....loved her new RockSTar papers, so when I saw on her blog she was doing a class with all of the new papers, well I just had to take it. She is so cute and full of creative ideas it just amazes me. She used pleather? and black trash bags in this project... really I am not joking trash bags. Brought my book home to PImP it Up, I will post some pics when it is complete.

Thanks Marah for your creative inspiration!

Winning the BLUe

Had to make the trip to the LA Fair to check out all the scrap stuff. Here is a picture of my BLUe Ribbon winner this year. I made this cute little book about my husband and his boat fetish. In the 6 years we have been together we have owned 4 different boats. He loves his toys....I only wish they spelled my name right? Loved to see all of the ribbons on projects from people I work with at Scrappin Good Times and even a few students from my go girls! With all of this competition I will really have to get creative next out.

Simply De FRIGHTFUL Class

Here is a sneek peek at my lastest creation, a 6 x 6 Halloween Book. I will be teaching this class at Scrappin Good Times in San Dimas on October 1st. Check out the store web site and go to Classes to see many other creative classes from the SGT Design Team. I hope you can join us in one of our classes...that is if you dare??

It's the most SpOOKTACULAR time of the year!

I love to decorate for Halloween, so when I visited Dark side of the Moon in Costa Mesa, my head started spinning...not because I had been possessed, but the decorations where just so darn creepy. My next stop was to my fav place, Scrappin Good Times in San Dimas. They are stirring up a wicked brew with all the new stuff on the shelves. My mind is thinking what fun I am going have putting all my ideas in the front window won't want to miss this one. In case I forget to tell you later, this is my favorite window display (of course I say that every time)

Cooling off

It's that time of year again when I am focusing on fall and thinking about Halloween decorations and buying some of those cute sweaters that you see all over the stores. Then I realize it is 104 degrees outside. Yes that heat wave we get this time every year, or so it seems... We will be heading down to our boat in Newport to try to cool off this weekend. Maybe even go out and do some fishing. I am still waiting to catch the BIG one!

I am going to visit this cute store that is all the BUZZ right now. It is called Paris to the Moon, it is close to the marina, so I think I'll drop by. I first heard about this store while I was at Stamp your Heart out in Claremont. Kerri Judd and Danyel Montecinos wrote a book " Crowns & Tiaras" which is right up my alley. Then when I was reading Marah Johnson's blog she too mentioned Paris to the Moon and that she would be selling some of her creations at the store, I am so bummed that I missed her. Marah's style is an inspiration to me ( have you seen her new line, Rock star, Totally cute). I had the privilege to meet Marah and take a class from her at CHA in OC last spring. It was just so weird that all of a sudden I was seeing this store listed in a several blogs. I am going to pick up my copy of this book and maybe... just maybe.... I can get it signed.

Notice the of the SGT DT members Jennifer Priest made this Blinke up for the store (using the new exclusive diekut) it is just too cute..

The design was one I had done originally for our SGT Design Team tee shirts, then if came to life when it was chosen to be the Scrappin Good Times store exclusive quick kut die. NOW, you too can own this diekut and add this cute shape to your very own scrapbook pages. Drop by the store and see some of the layouts that the SGT Design Team and employees have made with this diekut. You will see just how versatile this die really is.

Ok, so it only took me about three months to complete this blog....BUT finally I did it. It is just a start but I figured if I did not get going on this it would never happen. I have a hard time writing down my thoughts (my mind is constantly going) but I want to give it a try. Today I am getting ready for my 5oth Birthday Bash on Saturday. Yes that's right 50, I planned my own party, hey why not? I am really looking forward to it , got a DJ and went to Bev Mo for SUPPLIES. People in line where asking us "where's the party?" you can only guess how full our cart was. I like to call Bev Mo the candy store for grown ups. Anyway need to run off to Costco now , I guess I should get some snacks!!! You know, to go along with the supplies I got at Bev Mo.

I'll post some pics after the party that is if I have any that can be posted publicly. My friend Vivina and I will probably end up on the table dancing, well hopefully.....
