The card on the left is what my Upline made for SWAPS to take to the regional we just attended in Virginia Beach. They are yummy! Because I didn't have all the supplies to make it exactly like hers, I substituted and mine is on the right. Jen always does impressive cards.

Regional SWAP & Cased!

So the card in the picture on the left is the one I swapped for at regional and the one on the right is the one I made. I did not have all the necessary items to make the one like I received so I did the best with what I had. Well, now I have everything to make it except the Chocolate Chip DP, which is scheduled to arrive on Monday. :D I think it's an absolutely beautiful card.

Doggie Door and Deck!

I just had to show off Brian's handy work. He did such an incredible job at building Bella & Rikka's deck and installing their puppy door. Now, I just have to train them to use it. And, even though my whole back yard is securely fenced, I still need to fence in their area and put a pergola of some type over it as well. I don't want them venturing out into the yard or near the pool (currently covered) while I'm not home. And, I don't want to chance anything flying or crawling in there. It really is an awesome piece of work.

Regional Ideas!

So here are some of the pictures I took at the Regional I attended in Virginia Beach last Saturday. Fabulous aren't they.

Many times I mention Ming's and Katie's name in my posts and I know I've posted pictures of them before. But these were taken recently at Joani & Arm's Halloween party (friends and neighbors of mine) and I think they turned out pretty good. The first one is of Ming, Me and Katie. I think you can figure out the second one. Haha!

As promised-Regional Swap!

This is the SWAP I took to the Virginia Beach Regional this past weekend. It really was nice to attend this event as it re-energized me and I'm so pumped about all the new things we learned. Just so little time it seems to share it all; but I eventually will. For those demonstrators who can't attend Convention I strongly encourage you to go to the closest regional . You really do learn a lot and come away with a lot of ideas. And, OMG, it was so exciting that Shelli Gardner was there as well. What a neat surprise. Oh, and I'll post some pictures from the Regional soon so you can see some very inspiring projects.

Snow Swirled!

Snow Swirled (combined here with Season of Joy) has got to be one of my newest favorite SU sets with regard to theme; Christmas. The set is so versatile and I'm even using it for my swaps to take to the SU VA. Beach Regional this Saturday. I'm so looking forward to that. I have since modified this card a bit though. I did not stamp on the part underneath the squares, I just haven't had a chance to take a picture of the new card. And, I'll post the Swap card soon.
