3D Design Challenge

This week, the 3D Design Challenge was to make something 3D that will fit into the window of this adorable purse they are giving away this week. "I ain't too proud to beg". I want that sucker baaaad!

Anyway, here is my creation. It's 3D in 2 places. LOL! This address book would fit perfectly in that pocket. When you open up the blue card, you have your business cards inside. Flip open the cover and put all of your new contacts in there. You are sure to catch the eye of a new customer or two when toting this around.

Just have to share

OK, so I know these aren't craft related and they should be on our family blog, but I just had to share these. I love naked baby pictures! I have a naked baby picture of each one of the kids in our bathroom, and now our set is complete! I took these the other night as soon as our power came back on. I couldn't resist!

The second looks like D is smiling at me, but I just happened to snap this as he was talking to me. He was saying MMMMMMMMM, you MOM. I don't care what you say...that's what he was saying. ROFLMAO! He looks so big in this picture. I just love em both!!!

We have power!!! We have been with out power since Sunday afternoon at 1:00 and it wasn't restored until Sunday night at 8 something! We lost everything in our deep freezer and fridge/freezer, but other than that, all is good. I can't believe how bad the storm damage was. We had winds that were 75-80 mph. Trees were down EVERYWHERE and they snapped power lines. Crazy stuff in Cincinnati!

Stamp club

I love the 2nd Tuesday of every month! Why? Because it's our monthly stamp club! My Stampin' Up! Demo, Karen, is just the bees knees! She never disappoints any of us with any of the projects we work on. This month was no different!

We made this little basket using the Big Shot. And if you didn't already can now get one through Stampin' Up! Get a hold of Karen to place your order!!!

We also made this absolutely beautiful card using the stamp set Inspired By Nature. We used Kraft cs and then markers for the image. The grass is Kiwi Kiss (a must get for me...we all know green is my favorite color) and then I used Old Olive for the stems, Creamy Caramel for the top part of the flower and I also used Bashful Blue, Almost Amethyst and another Purple SU color I can't remember to make my flower. We also used Kiwi Kiss ribbon.

I swore off more flower stamps for this year's stamp club. I was the hostess this month. Guess what stamp set I ordered? Inspired by Nature! LOL! I couldn't resist!
