lots o' cards

Today I am going to post 3 cards that were made by Shelby here in the office. She takes care of all of our shipping. Making sure our product gets to where it needs to be in a timely fashion! She also loves to create like I do. She will sometimes show me what she makes and this time I needed to post them on the blog.

First card was made strictly from our fashion district line.
Second was done with our wedding soft spoken and the third from our modern milan line. I especially am favoring the wedding one. Great shower card!

On to other news...

Trying to get organized in my office. Going to tackle some cupboards that have been EXTREMELY ignored for a couple of years now. I am hoping to find some good stuff once I get them emptied. don't you love when that happens. You clean something out and you find some really great stuff that has been hidden in the depth of unclean closets. Almost makes it worth all the cleaning time you put in.

Here are some pics of the class that I taught at CHA.
I used the two mini albums (6x6 & 5x9) from the fashion district line and added some soft spoken from the same line. A little ribbon, inking and distressing Voila a cute little album!

I really LOVE the colors of this line. I used sepia toned pictures for this album. I am just learning the photoshop thing and the funny thing about those pics is they're all different sepia tones!


I am so stinkin intimidated by photoshop. If any of you out there would like to teach me and can teach in a very simple way feel free to call me! I am so envious of all those pictures that look fabo and come to find out they photo shopped them with certain actions & extras! ugh!

Did you know that the best time of the year is right upon us??? Can you guess???
Oh maybe not to all of you out there but next to football season it ranks right up there oh I am going to say they are dead tied. Guessed yet??

That is correct my friends...Baseball season!
Jaxon was drafted onto the Long Beach Dirtbags this season. Love the name! Get it dirtbags?? For you non baseball there any? They are named for the bases...diret bags get it??
A little baseball trivia.
Anyhow, if you are still reading and are interested. Pregames start in just a a week or so. Games start beginning of March. I have got my spiritwear ready, my heater ready, seeds bought and am biting at the bit to get on the field! Call me crazy!

Now not to play favorites of the kids, Makenna is starting her second year of winterguard. This is where color guards perform to recorded music in gymnasiums. She is now in Open Guard which is much more intense. 25 hours of practice in 4 days. That is right 25 hours! that was just 4 days of her practice schedule. We are so proud of her and though sometimes she wants to quit I know that she would miss it.
She has her first performance this weekend and we are ready!

Here is the thing. Some Suezi, trivia if you will...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE and would put more LOVES but you all might call and think I am crazy but LOVE competition. It makes me happy. Everything about it. The practices, the accomplishments on and off the field, gym whatever or wherever you are competing, the winning and even the losing. Although I hate to lose, it comes with competition and we must all learn how to lose and grow from it.
Now with sports you can scream, encourage, yell and not look to kooky. In a color guard comp you can't really yell all that much. Plus their performances are only 10 minutes long. Fast!

I am not saying I prefer sports I just think it is the yelling that I like better and for longer periods of time. Does that make sense?

It really doesn't matter because watching my kids in anything makes me happy and sometimes makes me cry! Weird and freakish...i know!
Okay I have babbled enough and need to get cleaning.
