Happy Memorial Day!

Some Gina K. patterned paper, and the polka dot stamp is from the Bold Flowers set.
More stuff from the Floral Frenzy Stamp TV Kit. I have used the heck out of that kit, and I still have a few scraps of paper and ribbon!
Did you know that Wild West used to sell for well over $100 on eBay? I never sold mine.

One evening, the lilac bushes were covered in butterflies, and Troy snapped a few pics. Ross and I were out on our evening stroll at the time, and we actually stopped and examined a butterfly bush that was covered in butterflies. Isn't it interesting that even though we weren't together, we were doing the same thing? Seriously, isn't the connection with loved ones the most amazing thing?

So there you have it!! We had to move in the middle of the school year this year because the house we were renting sold. When we moved into this one, after we knew it was a good house without any huge flaws, we decided to buy. It's a good little house and will work well for us for a year or two. Most of all, no strangers parading in and out on a moment's notice, and no having to move in the middle of the school year while trying to direct a musical. That almost killed me, I tell ya.

We have started bending the yard to our will, and have fixed holes and filled paneling stripes. Next we paint and then tear up the nasty carpet. There's 100 year old hardwood under this carpet!!! Then curtains, some new miniature furniture, and the living room will be done! We are going to turn this house into the cutest little thing!
This is a Unity owl. Love it!
Gina K. Designs -all of it. Even the sketch!

Creative Cuts and More Celebration Blog Hop

I love this Card Portfolio. It holds four A2 cards perfectly. What a nice gift this would be for someone you care about!
The theme of this blog hop is CELEBRATE. Why not celebrate the fact that you have people to love by giving them a bit of love in the form of PAPER!

This sweet box is cut from Stardream card stock. Choose Stardream Metallic card stock if you are looking for an elegant shimmer.
This box is a total breeze to put together and it's an interesting shape. It's the size of a cd case, and almost three times as deep.
It comes with an acetate square so your goodies, whatever they may be, won't fall out. Nice, huh?
It's the Heart Window Square Box #01

Just Call me Rita. Margarita!

This sassy gal was an image RAK from my friend, Sue, aka Perk, over on SCS. It's not the type of stamp I would ever buy, but I had fun making this card. I've never actually had a Margarita. I've tasted them, and I think they are yucky. I do think I might take a liking to them if they were offered in the junior high teacher's lounge, which is probably one of the many reasons why they don't have a bar in teacher's lounges. Can you imagine? ***Snort***
