Canvas Creations

Angels Scrapbook Garden has canvas now, so I made an April class sample (guthrie) and two store samples (Baby Boy Xan and vacation), so people can see some of the simple possibilities with them. I love canvas and wish I had the chance to play with it more often! Have you seen the triangle and hexagon canvases Canvas Concepts has now? Simply Scrapbooks in Cerritos had them. I really want to do a honeycomb-like wall decor item for my living room! I just need a couple hundred dollars for the number of canvases I want to use!

Rubber Stamp and Scrapbook Expo

This Pomona, CA, Expo was much smaller than the Scrapbook Expos I am used to in Orange County and San Diego, but I still had FUN! My fellow Zutter Zister, Nan, and I were there, hosting Bind-it-All and DreamKuts make and takes for Scrappin' Good Times in San Dimas. Owner Trish, her family and staff are great gals, and we are so glad they invited us to join them. As always, the Zutter machines were incredibly popular and we received a number of compliments about our make and take mini book project.

I met three gals who are going to be on the CKU Anaheim Bus Tour with me, Jennifer, Angie and Stephanie. They all seemed like FUN gals, so I hope they're on my bus (there will be two).

I stopped by the Freckle Friends booth and it turns out that they are local gals, too! In fact, Debbie lives about a half-mile from me and her kids got to the school my Mom works at! It's an amazingly small scrap world! Freckle Friends are the ones with the new Michelle Hill lines ... I have a feeling that you'll want to keep an eye on them!

I also met the Morissets, the owners of the organization tool company, Block Box, who are based right here in Mission Viejo, also. It's always fun to meet local manufacturers! I bought two of their portable SafeStore organizers ... I hope they solve my embellishment problem I have at crops! I'm always digging around and it takes me forever to find something!

What Happens When Daddy is in Charge of Haircuts ...

Yes, there is some hair left, about a 1/2 inch of hair. My Dad now calls him Baldy. I think this will end up on a scrapbook page next to a police chalk outline embellishment.
