Today it is actually chilly here! The sad thing is that my husband forgot the dog outside last night. Poor thing! It got down to 40 degrees last night. I am surprised she didn't bark! We have never left her outside before. He said she was just snuggled against the back door shivering. Poor baby! I think she will survive. ;o)
Have a wonderful Sunday! I"m off to get ready for Primary and Choir.

Isn't it amazing?
The good news is I am feeling very relaxed and good. The bad news is we found not only the See's candy shop but also the Rocky Mountain chocolate store so....none of my clothes fit. We didn't eat THAT much...and the chocolate covered apples count as fruit, right? At Sees my dear friend Michelle introduced me to the Molasses sticks. Oh my... LOVE those! In the picture here, we have chocolate covered grahams, oreos and pepermint sticks. Yes, I think we will be stopping by one more time on our way out today.
We found this cute hat shop the other nite and tried on tons of hats trying to find one like the hat Catherine Jeta Jones wore in the movie With Reservations. So cute! This isn't anywhere near the hat, but...it is way cute! You will also notice that my hair is straight in this shot. I had it done and they straightened it. It was awesome! It made me miss my straight hair. Of course, in Florida, it is never so smooth and silky. The humidity makes it have a mind of it's own.
Lastly, here is another project we did at leadership last week. It was really fun to do. It is a trifold card meaning it opens on the right and then again on the left. The dots along the side are rubons as well as the tiny white flower on the chipboard heart. Did you know the rubons come in black and white? Very cool! I also love our new striped ribbon. Yes, I did do this card a bit different from the example, but not too much. I added the touquoise strip along the diagonal. I just felt it needed a little something more.
I fly home tonight and tomorrow. Red eye with three stops. Whose idea was this again? Most likely mine. Believe it or not, I cancelled my foot and scalp massage for today so I could just vegg in the hammock with my book. It was lovely. Besides....I had to finish that book before I got on the plane. I have two more dying to be read! I finished Atonement by who ever that was, and am not debating on where I should read The Sex Life of Cannibles or the cute mystery book Michelle gave me.....oh, these decisions are so hard! I also have a book by Suzanne Somers about aging hormones....um, yeah, that will be an 'at home' read. Interesting but probably not enough to entertain me on a plane where I most likely will be sandwiched between two body builders. Please let that not be true!
See you in Florida!

I have loads of swaps to finish, loads of laundry to finish, and
loads of fires to put out. If you are a mom, you KNOW what
I mean. All I can say is....I'm going to really be ready for the
spa by the time I get there!
Here are a couple more clipboards I made last week. I did notmention the size in my previous post. They are small. Only about 6 x 4 inches. The photo spot is about 2-1/2 inches. I know that is small, but you could easily do the same idea with a bigger clip board. They are SO fun to make! For this one I used a piece of celery cardstock with some designer sky blue over top of it. It is very lightly striped...hard to see here. The flowers are Prima and the pearl middles are from my SU Pretties kit. I stamped the "love" with basic black ink. The stamp is a Heidi Swap (wish I had her handwriting). I added the "true" with my rough edges SU stamps. The photo corners are Pioneer and the ribbons are a combo of SU and Walmart.
This next one is for a new baby. My customer called me at the last minute and told me she had the spelling wrong so in the final project, there are two D's in Maddison. I was able to peel off the letters and space them apart to fix it. Thank goodness! The papers here are from an old SU catalog...slumber party I think. I stamped Madison with basic black onto whisper white cardstock and cut out each letter free hand. I sponged the edges of each letter block with pretty in pink ink. I used a flower from my pretties kit that I lightly rubbed with the pretty in pink ink (isn't that fun to read?) and stuck it and a button on with mini glue dots. I wasn't able to actually peel the glue dots off when I modified it, but I was able to sliiiide it over enough to still be over the I somewhat. The good news is my client was happy with them and paid me more than I asked for them. (that is always nice!)
I've got election training today and swaps to finish so I better get crackin!
Have a great day!!
