Pink Cloud Racing Stable

Back in July, Pink Cloud Racing Stable (brother Perry and sister in law Annette) hosted a remarkable event in Saskatoon.  My other brother Barry and sister in law Gwen helped out as did my cousin Brian to make sure the event went smoothly.   My sister in law from the other side of my family (Darlene) was the big winner of the night. Another sister in law Donna from the other side of my family also came out for the event, which made it truly special.

I wanted to preserve the memory and so I created this double page layout.


Would you like a Coffee……….Bag??

I decided that I needed a  coffee break from making coffee cards and so I decided to make a coffee bag instead.

I cut the bag out on my Pazzles cutter and hadn’t even noticed the funny little closure on top.  When I went to put it together, I wondered how I was going to deal with that.  The holes were too small to thread through the coffee ribbon that I wanted to use, but to leave them there made it look like the bag had eyes.  Looking through my stash, I found Tim Holtz’ bathroom (ball chain) chain and a lock charm.  Perfect, as it signifies that a coffee gift is precious and needs to be under lock and key, so to speak.

Anyway this little bag was easy  to put together and makes an excellent stocking stuffer.  Two or three Tassimo or Keurig pods fit in the bag quite nicely.


Supplies:  Inky Antics Coffee Time stamp set,  Tim Holtz Ball chain that will never go back into its’ original packaging, Lock charm from Beads and Plenty More, Cross Stitched Rectangles from Memory Box, Distress Markers, Xyron sticker maker. Recollections cardstock, May Arts ribbon and Scor tape

Hangover Baby

Hello, I am back after a very long absence and a very long drive down to El Mirage, Arizona.

I haven’t gotten my scraproom organized or the scrap stuff I brought down from Canada unpacked yet, but I wanted to get a post up before someone sent out the RCMP to look for me. I saw this layout I did last year of my Great Nephew and thought it would be a cute one to post.

He reminded me so much of the baby in the movie The Hangover, I just wanted to capture the moment in a scrapbook page.

Here is the layout:
