This coming weekend is the big, two-day VSBN. I'm sure I'll get lots more pages scrapped.

I also did a Fall page for my nieces, Sarah and Sydney. Their mom took them outside for a photo shoot and sent me a copy of the pictures. I love the Basic Grey papers and SU! ribbon that I used on their pages - not typical fall colors, but so pretty with their sweaters. The title is stamped - I used markers to color a flower stamp from Big Pieces. I then cut each flower out and stamped one letter on each flower. It's a good thing I like cutting out, because I had to cut out 8 flowers (4 for each page). And the flower stamp is an almost perfect match for the flower in the paper.

I've got some photos of the day to share with you, but Blogger is having problems again. I'll try to upload later this week.

The top pictures are Riley and Tarzan wandering out of the house and saying HI to Fred. The bottom picture is Riley eating the grass (oaky, I'm sure it's a weed) coming up through the deck boards.

Lately I've been making several of this style of card. My friend Melissa made a great card with this design, and I've been CASEing her. It's a great design because I can use up some of the scraps of pretty pattern paper I have laying around. Melissa used a torn edge at the bottom of her card, and I've changed it to a scalloped edge. I used a hole punch along my scallop to give it a lace look. it's a great basic design and I"m sure I'll make lots more of these.
This next set of cards I actually did the stamping this summer when I was at my friend Donna's in Myrtle Beach. I don't own this stamp set. I think it belonged to Darcy and both Donna and I stamped some images of it. I didn't do a nice of job coloring the flowers with markers as Donna did, but I think they turned out lovely.
I also got a little scrapbooking done this weekend. Several weeks ago, my SIL, Nikki, e-mailed some pictures of the kids and I had a bunch printed. I started with a couple pictures of my nephew Matthew in the snow. Now I'm working on the same page with pictures of my niece Hannah. I can't show it to you when I'm done because it's going to be my sample page for the upcoming VSBN on splitcoaststampers.com. I used Bordering Blue as the base of the page with the large photo mat in Sage Shadow and accents of More Mustard and Not Quite Navy. For stamps I used Big Piece and Little Pieces and Be Happy. My accessories are brads and eyelets - no ribbon because it's a boy page. The sketch came from my friend Sally.
It was a good weekend.
