Playing Catch Up!

Some of you may have noticed that I didn't do a blog post over the weekend!!  And if you didn't, that's OK too!!  But I had a wonderful time on Saturday getting together with some of my stamping friends that I met online through Stamp TV's Florida group.  What a wonderful bunch of ladies I have ever had the pleasure of knowing!!

We went to a LSS (Local Scrapbook Store) in Ocala and spent the day creating, coloring,
chatting and eating!!  It was so fun!!  

In the back row from L-R is Asela Hopkins, Paige (my BFF's niece), Tiffani (my BFF), 
Cathy Clark (our hostess) and me!  In the front from L-R is Deb Felts (my DD pal), 
Naomi, Barbara and Vianna (my partner in crime!)

Here is one of Asela and Deb! They are two of the sweetest people you could ever meet.  I have had the pleasure of meeting Deb many times before, but this was my first time meeting Asela.  What a sweet and talented lady she is!! I can't wait until we can do this again!!  It was so much fun!

I did a lot of shopping while I was there and bought some Bo Bunny, Graphic 45, Basic Grey, Creative Imaginations and SEI papers that you will surely be seeing in the future.  While there, I  spent the majority of my day working on an album cover for my puppy's first year.  It was a submission for the Dirty Dozen Gallery this month.  Our theme was critters!!  It was super fun to create for this month's gallery and my Sunday was spent finalizing my projects and uploading them for the new DD Gallery reveal Sunday night as well as preparing for Monday's Hippity Hop!!

Here is a snippet of the album cover I made for our puppy Tasha.   I made the title using the word Puppy from the DCWV Pet Tales line of paper and the word LOVE that I stamped using {ippity's} Alphabetically Adorable set.  You can see the whole picture by going HERE, but you will have to be a Fan Club Member to view it.  (Want to become a Fan Club Member?...

I hope you will go and check out this month's  
full of wonderful Critter Creations  that were submitted by the Dirty Dozen.  Unfortunately it was my last month as a Dirty Girl. :-(   I can't believe how fast that six months went!  We welcomed in two new Dirty Girls this month too that you will definitely want to meet!

And finally I had time to catch up and play along with last week's Whimsie Doodles Challenge (WWC22) on Paper Craft's Planet.  We were challenged by Nikki to use Glitter on our card!  So I made a cute Easter card using one of the images from Whimsie Doodles Easter Sentiments collection which is available in red rubber to make this card...

While I am not a fan of eating those little Marshmallow Treats at Easter time, I did find it absolutely adorable to work with!   Doesn't it look sweet enough to eat??

 I added my glitter in the form of crystal glitter called Diamond Dust.  I think it made the peep look just like they come with the candy crystal sugar coating on top!

In closing....

Tonight at midnight my {ippity} blog candy drawing closes and I will be picking one lucky winner to win an {ippity} set of their choice!

These are ADORABLE pics-I am SO glad you were busy this weekend b/c that would have been the only time I had to visit and when you called, you called my home phone and I was already on my trip :( I'm SO sorry it didn't work out-we didn't even think to check messages @ home :( Crud-oh well, we will be back in October I think? I told DH I have to make it a POINT to come see you as I would hate it to be Jan. CHA by the next time I see you-come to think of it-are you doing Chicago????
