About Me

My photo
I love to take pictures and after I purchased my first digital camera I took even more pictures. I currently have albums, slide carrousels and CDs full of of pictures that need to be organized and presented in some type of fashion. That is why I started digital scrapbooking. So far I have only done a few pages, but my plans are to do alot more. My camera is also great help in organizing the cards that I have made. I have taken pictures of all the cards and want to make albums that I can leave with prospective customers. I have also put these pictures on the internet so family across Canada can see them.

Stampin Canada Weekend

Labour Day weekend was officially declared a StampinCanada weekend where the eastern (Southern Ontario) stampers meet the western stampers in Burlington. A fun time was had by all and included a stamping pj party, stamp shopping in and around Burlington and Hamilton and the infamous Buffalo Stamps in Buffalo. While in Buffalo we pulled ourselves away from the craft stores for a short time and had a wonderful lunch at the Olive Garden. Then it was back to shopping again. Sunday morning we had a card class at Angela's in Dundas, then a visit to a Toronto night club in the evening. Monday, we all atteded a very special lunch in a members fantastic garden and talked some more. Then too soon it was time to say good-bye as the ladies from the west had to make their flights home.

Card Swap

Some of my Stamping Canada friends from points west came to visit us here in Southern Ontario Labour Day weekend. The few weeks before they got here I was a little stressed as I wanted to make the best swap card I could, but I had too many ideas floating around in my head to make one card. Finally, I settled on a few stamps and the background image and the colors. This is what I came up with. I combined a few stampscape stamps with a stamp from Stamping Up. Although it's hard to see, the yellow background was embossed in my cuttlebug.


Don't know where the summer went, probably down the drain with all the rain water. I've never seen such a wet summer. My grass loved it and stayed green all summer, but I certainly didn't love it. With much anticipation we rented a cottage for a week hoping the rain would stop or slow down. Well, it slowed down a little, but not enough. We never even made it to the beach.
