I am in celebrate mode!!!! It's Spring Break! Yeah..... I'm posting the projects for my March Stampers Ten clubs. I still have a few people that want to create their projects. On the left is a set of magnets, all packaged up and ready to gift. On the right is a card created using one of the Sizzix die cuts. That was just way too easy.

I have really neglected my blog, I am so sorry. I have been bitten in the butt by Spring Fever! When Sonny talked about planting a garden, I thought," Oh that's wonderful! He'll have something to do and I'll have time to work in my craft room." I didn't know he was going to plow up a good half acre of land. I guess I'll be working the garden more than I thought. Watching the little seeds come to life is very rewarding.
Here is a Star book and card I made for a friend at works upcoming wedding. I created this from a Stampin Up scrapbook kit called Tie The Knot.
Here is the card. I like the way this turned out the colors are great together. I love the Stampin Up scallop edge punch. It looks like lace along the edge of the card.

This has been a busy week at work. I have one more day of FCAT testing, Monday. My legs ached like a toothaches by 2:00 yesterday. I realized that I had stood on a hard tile floor all day Tuesday and Wednesday. I had to come home and take some Aleve and prop my legs up. I thought I was going to have to stay home from work today, but I felt much better this morning. I slept with a pillow under my knees and I took more Aleve before going to bed.
We went camping last weekend and had a great time. Sonny and I loaded up the boat with our tent and a few necessities. J.P., Tammy and Madison had already taken their Trooper II and headed out to set up camp. We were surprised when we got there that Zack was with them. I had been trying to reach him for two days.
Madison at our campsite. This is the view from camp, isn't it beautiful?
Here are a few Tic Tac Holders that I made for quick inexpensive gifts. I am always looking to little thank you gifts. Have a great weekend. Remember that our Stampers Ten Club meets nest week. Look for the club reminder this weekend.

I saw this cupcake take along, by Nichole Heady on the Internet and just had to make one. I really don't know why, because it would be much easier to just buy or make the cake yourself. But, I thought it was cute, so here is my version. The Cupcake Take Along Kit:

I played with my Cricut tonight and made this cute little box. I used the cartridge called Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. The little popcorn box is 3 1/2" tall and 2 1/2" wide at the top. This was so quick and easy. I used Stampin' Ups large and small star punches to make the hanging tag.

I had a very busy weekend. My neighbor passed away Friday. I baked blueberry muffins Friday evening and took them over. Saturday J.P. and Zack came over to see Mrs. Louise, so I baked brownies and that evening I took a pan of lasagna. Sonny and I will miss Mr. Frank so much. He was a wonderful neighbor. I finally took pictures of the STAR Book that I taught last month at Priceless. These are beautiful in any paper.
