Hello again

Hi everyone,

I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted. To make this short,  I went on a cruise on the Allure of the Seas, the largest cruise ship in the world (picture a seventeen story floating hotel with more than 10,000 passengers and crew), and then onto Florida to spend some time with my sister. I had a fabulous time.  When I returned home, I baby-sat my two older grand-daughters for a few days, and then renovated my two upstairs bathrooms (that took a month; wow, what a mess), but the end results are amazing. I absolutely just love how it turned out. I then had to get ready for Scrapfest, where I designed and packaged my "make and take"; designed my new classes for April, May and June, and finally, here I am. Time just flew by.

My email has changed to so put me in your address book.

Simon, owner of Pointers Scrapbooking store, has done it again. He's launched the cutest characters from Dreamerland designs, and I just love them. They are exclusive to Pointers, and I am teaching a class called "New Stamps, New Cards" featuring these adorable little girls. So if you are in the Toronto area, I would love to see you.

I'm using the ballerina image on the card I'm posting. I had so much fun designing her, especially because this is the card I gave my oldest granddaughter Maya for her 7th Birthday. She takes ballet and has to wear her long hair in a bun, and it really reminded me of her. I wanted the card to have some dimension so I added ribbon for the tutu. I used Cheerylyn flourish die, and stamped a script over it with pink ink. I am so happy with how she turned out, and Maya just loved it.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I would love to hear from you, so leave me a message and say hi. I will be back in a few days with more cards.

Hi Nicky,

You were an amazing teacher tonight. I feel so privileged that I was the only student. I love your elegant style.

It would be a delight to take another class with you.
