Mother's Day

Wow! Mother's Day is approaching and I could not help but love this line of Bo-Bunny Mamarazzi! Look at the awesome project built using these papers and embellishments! Can't wait to get my hands on these trays.

Make sure you think about Mom on May 9th. Make her a card, an album or write her a poem or a song...being a Mom is hard work. If you can't be with her, make sure you take a moment and think about all that Mom's do that they are never recognized for...there is no "job" like it.

Love you Mom!

Have a great week!

National Scrapbook Day!

It's right around the corner....May 1st is the traditional National Scrapbooking Day. However, a couple years ago, specific names in the industry realized that most of us FANTABULOS ladies (and some gents) have busy lives that can not always work around this date, and granted us an entire MONTH to celebrate this awesome craft!

Make sure you check in with your local retailers, online scrap suppliers and direct sellers (Close to my heart, Creative Memories, Stampin Up, etc.) to see what kind of great deals they are running this month! This is the big season for them, like Christmas :) )

Hope you can make time in your crazy month of May to celebrate NSD! Scrap, journal, sketch, take pictures, make a memory! Whatever you do, make sure it winds up in a scrapbook somewhere for generations to enjoy!

Have fun!

Until next time,

Boxed Treasures at local trade show!

How exciting! One of our awesome supporters this year was Boxed Treasures. An online company out of St. Albert that builds craft shelves and organizers! What a dream it would be to have custom shelves fill a scrap room!

Check them out or check our local newspaper, the ECHO on page 6 in this week's edition!

Summer Lovin'

Scroll down the right hand side of the blog and look at the temperature in this crazy part of the country...24 degrees at 9:00 p.m. in Northern Alberta on April 19th is amazing!

There was sunlight today that would blow your mind!

I took advantageof playing with that sunlight for some photo opportunities at work.

Make sure you pack up that camera and enjoy these few bonus days. If you send em to me, we'll make you famous here on the blog.

Sunny thoughts!

Club 500

This weekend we participated in Club 500. It was the reward club for those who supported our fundraiser by raising or contributing over $500!!
What an amazing group of ladies!

We had too much food, thanks to the remarkable folks who brought dinner, dessert, lunch, oh my!

Thanks to Loretta & Eric for that great Angel Food Cake!
We had some great conversation and amazing goody bags!
Love the colours in that package! The group received products from Kaisercraft, Smooch and Tim Holtz, valued over $50 each!

I believe it was a nice afternoon for a job well done.
Can't wait to see more people at the next one!

Have a great week!

Is it worth it?

Wow! Just spoke yesterday with a fabulous young member of our local High Level Army Cadet Corps. They were the recipients of our fundraising efforts at the last event. These cadets travelled last weekend to a provincial Drill Competition.A competition based on marching skills, dress and deportment of the Army Cadet.

They took GOLD in the competition!

What awesome representation of this small northern town!

Well done!

When we work hard to put together local events, that support our youth, is all the effort worth it? You bet it is!

Survey says....

If you haven't had the chance, take a scroll down on the right hand side of the blog, past the awesome sponsors list, and cute blinkies that I am loving lately, and please participate in my survey.

It's little things like this that will help make every event more interesting.

Thanks for your time!

Need inspiration to get you through the week?

I love Easter break, but when I'm all stuffed with dinner, maxin' & relaxin', it's hard to get started on a LO.
Here's is some great online motivation to add to your faves! I know I did!

Love the way the sketches are set up so you can envision your own pages and patterns.


If you get on a roll, heck, might as well Go All Night!
