Lots to Share...

Hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day weekend. Alex and I just hung out at home while Ted was in North Carolina for the Coca Cola 600. When I was down there for the Inspired event, the Embassy was offering race packages. I decided to splurge and surprise him. Needless to say he loved it! He has been treated like a king all weekend in their special V.I.P luxury box. :)

Anyway...today I finally got some things crossed off my long to-do list today. One of these things was to photograph some of the scrap projects I have been working on. Here are a few things that I created using Jenni Bowlin products. I just sent them to Jenni as well b/c I made them for Jenni's booth at CHA. I hope she likes them. No pressure right?? lol I've said it before and I am saying it again...just love her product...
A detailed shot... Journaling: Even though you were not in my life five years ago. Now, I can't imagine one day of my life without you in it. I am one lucky lady to be your step mom.
I also created a little shadow box of our first dance at our wedding. This is a pic of the inside without the lid..
I used Ranger's Paint Dabbers for the stars. I love those! I must get them in every color now. lol Here is the finished project sitting on a cute little stand I got at the dollar store....The shadow box is from Martha Stewart. I got three of them at Michael's. They were marked down from $14.99 to $2.99!

The last project uses Jenni's Scalloped Banner Chipboard. Instead of making a banner, I spray painted them using chalkboard spray paint and turned them into mini-chalkboards. They are hanging in my kitchen and are perfect for writing down phone messages and grocery lists...

You can find lots of these Jenni Bowlin products at the Bakery!
I also have some pics to share from my awesome Mother's day. My son surprised me with a card on Mother's Day that said that we were taking a surprise trip on Thursday and he cleared my schedule for me! He is the best. On Thursday, he navigated me until we arrived at the Cincinnati Art Museum! He said that he remembered me saying that I really wanted to get back there since I haven't been since college when he went there recently for a school trip. How sweet is that? Very thoughtful. So, we spent a rainy day at the museum walking around and enjoying art. Nothing could be better. Just love him ....
and speaking of Mother's Day....Ted surprised me with a Flip Camcorder! I was so excited. Can you tell? lol

Do you know what this means? As soon as I can learn how to use it, I will be recording some scrapping videos to post here! Leave a comment and tell me what you want to see. I need some ideas and I don't want to bore you guys. lol

Be back soon with more scrappin' projects and the winner from the Creative Block Survival Guide Challenge Contest. Thanks for reading!
