The sweetest thing Sunday Challenge- Happy Easter

I can't believe it!  Not only did I get to play along in the sweet-sunday-sketch-challenge, but I did it on the same day it was posted!   Woo-hoo yeah for me.   (its the small things:). 

So for this weeks challenge I used some of the goodies I picked up yesterday at MFT's new store.   Of course I thought I had everything before walking in there and came out with like..........8 new items. 

So I can officially say join in and play along.   You have all week to submit you creations and get crafty :)

Ooh I almost forgot,   so from Wendy's excellent teaching skills,  how do you like her hair?  I think I am getting better?

MFT Re-Opening and New Tips

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Re-Grand Opening of My Favorite Things.   They relocated to a cool swanky shabby chic shop in the Eustis downtown area.  I spent the day crafting, had a lovely lunch and tea latte at Olivia's cafe and then walked around the lake as the town was holding an event called Georgefest.  It's a weekend celebration in honor of George Washington's Birthday.  Of course the highlight is to to have one of my favorite designers and stamp creators right here in my backyard!   I get so inspired by such talent. 

It was a really nice opening with a guest visit from DT member Jody Morrow. She had us create this itty bitty strawberry treat using MFT Die-namics  Berry Box and one of my favorites .....  Woodgrain Fence.  I use this fence alot!

I also got to meet Wendy Ramlakhan.   She is a coloring guru and let me sit with her quite some time going over coloring techniques for hair.  (as this is my struggle).   I was taught quite a few tips and tricks.   Wendy of course has a blog and if you haven't checked it out,  you should! It's call Sugar Pea Designs.  She has some really good tutorials.
Most of what I have learned with my crafts have been through blogs, you tube, tutorials etc.  And truly of lot of what I make is easy enough for any one to do.

Well thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your evening.

It's Sale-a-bration with Stampin UP!

If you are a Stamping Up fan then you know what Sale-A-Bration is,  if you are not let me tell you all about it.  Basically you order at least $50.00 of  products and you get to pick a free item.  This is anything from DP paper to stamps to embellishments.   I actually got to play with some of these thanks to my SU demonstrator who was so sweet to put together a little package  for me.   Let me just say the new DP paper Fresh Elegance  sooooooo pretty.   Check out what I came up with below and thanks for stopping by.

SCS 368 Happy Birthday

Its Super Bowl Sunday or is it Super Craft Sunday? :).   I have been crafting a few cards for friend and literally had to get them out the door, so I didn't even have time to take a pic of all of them except for one :0.   I used the layout from the Wednesday Card Challenge 368 on Spiltcoast Stampers.   It was sorta simply and I again used my DP Poteeka Souffle.   This paper pack has the prettiest designs. 

Enjoy your Sunday :)
