Merry Christmas from the Wilson's and Jedda's

Here is a picture of my Grandchildren.  I took this on the 20th.  It was so hard to get a good picture of them because they are such ham bones.  Hamming it up in front of the camera.  Giggling and wiggling about.
Jordan is 14, he stands about 1" taller then me now.  Zack is 12, Mary is 10 and Hailey is 7.  As you can see she has lost some of her teeth.  They bring so much joy to my life.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

My Creations Book Mark Albums

Here are some My Creations Book Mark Albums Z1740 that I have been working on for my Grandchildren.  They aren't done, but I wanted to show you how they are coming along.  We sell them in our CTMH Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea book on page 132 and the Brocade Assortment Z1748 embellishments are sold on page128.

I have to make one more then I can start putting pictures on. I am making these Albums so the my Grandchildren can remember their Grandmother Denise Jedda, that they lost on August 27th, 2011.  I will post more pictures when I get them complete.  I am using CTMH's Avonlea Papers and trying to make them unique to each child.  I really like how they are turning out so far.

If you would like to make some of these Book Mark Albums call me 503-708-6889 or you can order them on my website Here

Oh My! Time has just been flying by lately.

I haven't posted much lately, but I have been busy creating and planning Classes and our new CTMH Idea book kickoff in January 2013.   It is hard to believe that we are only 10 days away from the new year.

Shannon and I have a Meetup Group called Portland Friends Scrap.  We currently have over 160 BFF's who have joined our group.  We meet at the same place every month and crop.  3 times a year we have an Idea Book kickoff party to celebrate the new Idea book and all the cool new stuff in the book.  We've come up with a new game to play at our crops called "The Bucket List" where we'll be giving away fun little goodies while we papercraft the day away.  This should be a lot of fun for everyone.

Here are some of the cards we will be making on January 12, 2013.

Here is the 2 page layout that we will be making on January 12, 2013 also.
