Episode #293 ~ Super Simple Sunday #26 "Sweet 16" Centerpiece

Hi Everyone,
  I hope you are enjoying this glorious weekend... I have been busy getting started on making our daughter's "Sweet 16" Birthday Party centerpieces. What fun I am having!!! I found these really pretty & very tall vases on sale last week at A.C. Moore. Much to my suprise, I also found that they are carrying Deco Mesh as well, yippee... Her gown is tons of amazing layers of teal, blue. light blue and dark blue tule. Lot's of sparkley beads and rhinestones, really stunning!!!
  Originally, I was planning on having floral centerpieces made, but it was really exspensive and I figured I could make something that really reflected her bubbly personality. Her face lit up when she saw this and I knew I hit the nail on the head. *Twirls around the room* I am sooooo excited for her and her big day!
  If you have any questions, just let me know...
Happy Huggs,

Episode #291 ~ Super Simple Sunday #25 / Fancy Flower Stamp Set

Happy Sunday Everyone,
  Greetings from soggy and wet New Jersey! After having such extremely warm weather this year, a big rainstorm moved in last night, cancelling the 4th quater of my daughters softball game, rats! I am glad to see it though, our grass and greenery really need the water. Plus, it's a good day to be in my scraproom, for a little while anyway...
  In today's tutorial, I am using the Stampin' Up! stamp set called "Flower Fancy". It has alot of stamps in it, I love sets that give you alot of bang for your buck! I also used the sentiment from "Heard from the Heart". A little Baja Blue and some Lucky Limeade ink and viola ~ you have a quick and easy card. Actually, I made a whole stash of these cuties for my card box. I like being ready at a moments notice if I need a card in a hurry.
  Have a peaceful rest of your Sunday,
Happy Huggs,

Episode 289 ~ Rachael Ray Mis-Hap, Cards from Val & Haul

Hi Everyone,
  I hope you all are doing well & enjoying this glorious weather we are having. I thought I would share with you some of the scrappy goodness I picked up at Hobby Lobby & Big Lots. I had a road trip with my favorite girl, Maggie my Golden Retriever! It took us about an hour to reach our destination & it was a beautiful sunny day for a drive through the country. I think I will make more of these road trips in the future, perhaps every season. I LOVE Hobby Lobby!
  A big thank you goes out to Valerie! Check out her adorable St. Patty's Day & Easter cards she sent me. I love them Val, you are so sweet & I will think of you while I am scrapping. Thanks again sweetie ~
 I will try to post some of the pictures I got of Buddy from the show Cake Boss while I was (briefly) at Rachael Ray. I have them on my f.b. page, but I am not sure how to post them on my blog, they were taken with my cell phone.
  Never a dull moment for The Happy Stamper... Gosh!
