Welcome to my NEW blog site. Soon I will be sharing loads of exciting new crafty creations. Please be patient while this blog is under construction. Thank You!
Hi Everyone . . . I know, I know, it’s been a loooooong time since I posted anything to this blog, but I’m BACK . . .
At the moment I am participating in a swap with 6 other ladies, where we each make a 5″x7″ page using only what paper and goodies we have on hand. This swap was created by my good friend, Debi Schnabel over on the Pita Babes & Bulls Facebook page. What is so fun about this swap is that not only do I get to clean out some of my stash that’s been around for a while (hours? days? months? years?) but it’s international. The ladies in my group are from the Netherlands, Spain and the United States.
Here are some pictures of the fantastic page (front & back) that I received from Barb Engelking who lives in Wisconsin:
This 5″ x 7″ page (front & back) that Barb created can hold 26 pictures. Can you believe it? 26 pictures! It’s like a mini album in and of itself. Barb even included extra paper. And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her choice of colors. Thank you so much Barb!
Well, that’s all for now . . . take care and thanks for stopping by . . . until next time . . . Hugs & Kisses LindaB
After brainstorming, Sharon decided to create for each of them a special plaque . . .
I also purchased a ruler basket and Sharon and I had fun filling it with local goodies; . . . a couple of hats from Sierra Nevada . . . rice chips, nuts, fruits and candies for them to snack on in their hotel room . . .
After Jim and Cesar had a short nap, Sharon and I picked them up at their hotel, took them to Chico Scrapbook to pick up Jodie and off to dinner we went in beautiful downtown Chico at Christen Michaels!
Well that’s all for now . . . I will post more about this fabulous weekend tomorrow . . . thanks for stopping by to visit and until later . . . Hugs & Kisses – LindaB

Good Evening everyone! I know it has been a little while since my last blog, but like everyone else sometimes life takes over and you are very busy!!! That’s my story and I am sticking to it-LOL. . . Tonight I would like to share with you one of those layouts from my stash of incomplete layouts . . . yes, I finished another one (LOL). . . you would think that the cabinet that is storing all of those incomplete scrapbooking layouts would be going down, but nooooooo it doesn’t look like it yet . . . anyway back to the layout I did complete . . . Back in 2008 my hubby and I attended one of our son’s high school friends second wedding. Also invited to this wedding was our daughter and granddaughter . . . it was a very nice proper wedding until the live band began to play at the reception . . . all of a sudden little girls came out of the woodwork and took over the dance floor . . . they were having so much fun and we adults were enjoying their free style form of dancing a lot . . . the poor bride and groom had to cut and serve the wedding cake to get these little dancing queens off the dance floor . . . so drum roll please here are some pictures of my granddaughter having the time of her life . . . For this layout I used the Fancy Pants “Dancing Girl” line of paper. It was just perfect for these pictures of the little dancing queens – LOL!!! . . . Well that’s all for now . . . thanks for stoping by and until next time . . . Hugs & Kisses – LindaB
Good Morning . . . I want to wish everyone a JOYOUS & HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY and I want to share with you today some valentine “lollies” I made. Last Saturday I spent a wonderful day at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique’s annual Valentine crop . . . you know where you visit a lot, eat way too much food and get some scrapping in (very little scrapping on my part as I am busy visiting – LOL) . . . at each assigned seat was this little stack of goodies waiting for us. Well, the wooden thread spool and wooden dowel in the packet of goodies just screamed “LOLLIE” (as well as the store sample) . . . sooooooooooo I made one. Which lead into my making two more at home! Here are what the individual lollies look like. Don’t know what I am going to do with them as my dear hubby points out they do not exactly go in with my home decor, but I do soooooooo enjoy making them . . . I am already thinking of ones to make for St. Paddy’s Day (hahaha). Sooooooo, that’s all for today . . . thanks for stopping by and until next time . . . Hugs & Kisses – LindaB
