New Ice Sk8r Albums up on my site

Aloha mai,
It's been a busy time for me with school out and summer starting.  The weather is finally being a little more summer like.  I've also got a little summer cold.  Bummer! 

But despite that, I managed to finish a few Sk8r albums this week in preparation for the Washington State Games in July.  

I've got them up on my website.  I hope you'll take a look and spread the word.  ;)
This weekend Secret Scrapper had a one day crop.  It was really fun with great challenges.  The next one is a three day crop July 11-13!  Hope you can join us!  Here's my challenge from the weekend.  You can do it even though the crop is over.  

Take care and have a great week!  
a hui hou!

The Costume that Never Was...

Aloha Mai,
Here is a quick post to show you a LO I just completed for the Rusty Pickle June Blog Challenge.  I love this paper!  It's the new White Chocolate Bunnies line. 

So, I found this photo lying around.  It was a peek into the past when DS loved to dress up.  I wanted to challenge myself to use only paper so I came up with this paper pieced flamingo design.  LOL.  Okay, so it's not Rembrandt, but I had an awful lot of fun creating it!!!  

Thanks again to another inspiring Challenge from Rusty Pickle

My latest ScrapFriends Review is out.  I got to play with Lisa Pavelka's "Claying Around" DVD, her wonderful Magic Glos and Amazing Poly Bonder.  If you have been wanting to play with clay, but just didn't really know how to start...I recommend you check out this DVD!  Look what I did with her instructions, I have NEVER been able to make anything worthwhile out of clay LOL...until after watching her DVD! 

Take care and have an awesome day!!

Fiskateers Slumber Party

Aloha Mai! 
I'm so excited, I took my daily look at the Fiskateer's Blog and found my project up and running! About a month back Fiskateer Lead May sent me some wonderful goodies to play with. I hope you'll take a look. Fiskateers Frame: Heidi Grace Daydream Believer line and Secret Scrapper Frame.

You can find the frame I used at the Secretscrapper site.  I just love this picture of DS when he was little.  The paper bag hats are so in fashion LOL!

This week I'll be busy preparing for the debut of my Ice Sk8r albums at the Ice Fest Competition.  I am not sure how I'll be covering my shifts when DS is skating, but I'll figure something out.  I am hoping to make friends with the people on either side of me and maybe I can get coverage.  ;)

I have this really cool old cabinet that I picked up at the side of the road one day and I'm going to use it for displaying the albums.  I just found out that the table size is really small, so going vertical will help!   I'm going to clean it up and I'll take a picture and post my booth later this week.

Catch my latest review on How Do You Glue's Crafter's Card file at the ScrapFriends site.  It's a totally cool and fun item to alter!!! 

My Etsy Store has been re-supplied with tons of wonderful handmade items.  Remember that you pay only actual shipping!  I have some great Recipe albums up for grabs.  

That's all for now.  Take care and have an awesome day! 
A hui hou!
