Are you feeling sick?

Lots of my friends and family have had the winter bugs that bring sniffles and illness to their house. I designed a little goodie to give to my sweet sickies.
This uses the new yummy designer paper that is cardstock weight. Happy DAY!!! And new big brads, new edge punch, and stamps. The brad is metal and connects to the magnet to make a beautiful hidden closure. The box at the bottom is for the tissues to sit in and put some cough drops in there too. Then I picked up a deal on some Avon chapstick with the sweet hearts. The club girls seemed to enjoy making this but I don't think any of them will give it away. Hmm, is that good or bad?

Yellow streak sounds bad.

Those adorable bees make yellow a great color and I have had a grand time playing with them. As I searched my photos of things to share it seemed I had a bunch with the color yellow. Not like me but I think I was in a sunny mood. Not sure if you can see the gold sparkle on the beehive.
My yellow mood may have started with these. I took a stuffed pasta class. YUMMO! We learned to make our own pasta and the filling and now I want a pasta machine. Oh dear! A friend that took the class with me laughed because everyone had petite little ones and mine were ENORMOUS, in comparrison. I like big things, what can I say?

It really is Yo Yo Yellow!

I have a brand new pack of YoYo Yellow because I never use it. I am not a bold Brights kind of gal. So I grabbed it to use for a template. After I started sponging and stamping, it was not so bad - Ok, I actually liked it. And so did the gals. Admittedly, the adorable Bees help a lot. Not to mention the yummy candy inside.
I am catching up slowly on things my sister told me to post. Don't tell her she is right, it goes to her head. :)
Have a great day and hope you find sunshine too.

Scrappin' Up!

My scrapbook style is pretty simple. I like clean with minimal stuff. Mostly a black page with pictures and small little titles or stories below. I think it comes from looking at my mom's books as a kid so there is a whole nostalgic side to it. Besides, I look dated enough in the photos, I don't need to embelish it. :)

Here is my challenge. I have a new club that started last month and it is a scrapbooking club. Some of these gals are serious pros! Talk about intimidated! But I love a challenge and I love to create so I jumped in with both feet! The blue layout was my first month. I thought it was ok, cute mittens using a cuttlebug folder. But the gals were done in record time! I tried to add more this month without it feeling cluttered. I did not want to lose the pictures. How did I do? I will admit, I kind of like it. Imagine that. :)

I'll try to be back tomorrow with pictures of last month's stamp club items. My sister, I mean my downline keeps reminding me to share those.
