How Sandra got her Groove back!!!

Yes ladies and gents..........I got my craftin' groove back!!!! I really feel like its been forever since I've really been able to sit in my scrapbook room and do some fun projects. I did a few cards but here is my favorite card. This was scraplifted from don't remember who because I saw it and sketched it out [as I usually do when I scraplift]. I changed a few things on it.

Water Bottle Pouch & Journal

I had posted the original design of the Water bottle pouch here on my family blog. My sister-in-law is a Spanish teacher and has the summer off. She came down to visit for a few days and we actually got to make some really fun projects. I really haven't been in my scrapbook room at all this summer. So she wanted to give some of the staff a small gift and this is what we did. We made 16 pouches. I think I might make some for the staff at my boys' school.
This is a journal I made her.

I am back!!!

I AM BACK!!! YES MY SISTERS....I am officially home for 2 weeks though. I was in Ca for one week and will be returning in 2 weeks for some more "down time". We had a ton of fun. Check out my family blog for what we did those few days. It should be updated today or tomorrow. So before I left, I was browsing 2 peas message boards and found this new paper stack. I went to the Joann's by my mom's house and they had none in 12x12. I had them call the next closest Joann's which was 15 minutes away......AND THEY HAD IT!!! I was so happy because I really wanted it. So I was lucky enough to buy the last one they had in stock. Its was on sale for $9.99. Look at the delicious paper in the stack. Its not all the pages but just a few.

This stack is called The Grade School stack by DCWV. Its a premium stack with glitter and foil. Enjoy the view!!!

I am so sorry I haven't posted anything new in awhile. I've been super busy with my new smoothie business, kids, my hubby, and my home. I will try to post something before I head out to Ca on Wednesday.
Take care, Sandra
