How Y'all Doin' today! Sorry I didn't post yesterday but the weekend kinda got away from me without getting any projects done, LOL. I hope all of you had a fabulous Mother's Day weekend! Mine was great--the weather here in VA was PERFECT and we spent all weekend outside. I got my garden planted, James planted most of our new shrubs and we barbecued out both nights. A nice, slow, at home weekend which I royally enjoyed after running around so much lately. When we finish all the planting (crossing fingers by end of month, lol) I'll share new pics with you! And then I leave tomorrow for my friend Anary's house in Delaware for the night and then I pick up my friend Melanie on Thursday morning for our trip to Grand Rapids, Michigan to teach for the weekend. I'm looking forward to catching up with friends old and new and then I will be back home late Monday night. Then I'm home for the rest of the month to catch up on projects, deadlines and new videos--yay! Next up on my traveling schedule is Greensboro, NC and Greenville, SC (and maybe Vegas in June, whoo hoo)--you can register or see info at www.cmcroad.com. I can't believe my kids only have 5 weeks of school left--HOW did that happen? LOL! Then they'll be home for the summer--the first few weeks are ok but then they start getting bored, annoying me and each other and then by August we are all ready for them to go back, hee hee. The Circle of Life I guess...........LOL!
-Upcoming locations that I will be teaching my CMC Copic Classes include Canada and Ohio and maybe Vegas! South Carolina and North Carolina sign ups are listed NOW for June! Look at the www.cmcroad.com site next week for registration info!
-New class going up at the CMC Classroom taught by my friend and DT sistah Mindy Baxter. She's teaching a Magnolia Only Class that features copic coloring instruction, masking and other ways to put projects together. Its a fun class and you can pre-register for it HERE starting tomorrow May 11th (hover over Class Description/Pricing tab)--class invites will go out next week around Thursday when it debuts!
-7 Kids has the NEW Basic Grey paper packs and accessories (all 4 sets) HERE and the NEW super-cute Bildmalarna stamps HERE!
The ball basket would be great as a party favor or filled with a small treat for someone special in your life. Super easy to make--its a basic box pattern (use any size you want) and then I just cut two more circles and embossed them and added some "dirt" with my Inkssentials Blending tool and SU ink. To make some grass I added some green FlowerSoft which gives a nice texture to the project. Again I used the PTI "All Star Team" set for the pennant and stars. The handle was easily made using the matching patterned papers. Perfect for this baseball season & your favorite lil' or BIG ballplayer (wink)!
Alright I will be gone for 5 days but I have lots of projects done and will be blogging them this week including a Gina K Blog Hop and a 7 Kids Challenge--so stop back by!!
