Hello again, It's been awhile!

Hi Friends!
I've been away for awhile. Back in August my dad and his wife Carol came from Florida for a visit. It was good to see them. We took them to a Mariner's ball game and were treated to a fun fireworks show.
Right after their visit we helped our son, Justin, get settled into apartment living over in Pullman. He's an official WSU student now. I miss him bunches, but he calls, texts, or video chats with me everyday. It may seem a bit unusual, but both of my guys are away from home for awhile now.
Mike is off to Melbourne, Australia for awhile. We video chat every evening. We actually get to eat "together"! It's his lunch time and my dinner time (only a day apart!). He's been taking some great pictures and I can't wait to see these places in real life.
On top of all that, I started back to school, so I've been very busy with my classroom and getting to know my new second graders. They are a fun bunch of kids. We've had a great first month of school.

So now, I'm ready for some stamping! I went to the annual shoe box swap up in Bellingham. There were 24 of us. I had a great day and came home with 23 cool cards. I will take pictures of them and post them soon. But first I wanted to share some of the projects we'll be doing at my fall stamp camp next Saturday. It's going to be a stampin funfilled day! I look forward to having the house filled with happy stampers :)

Here are 2 of the 5 cards we'll be making:
This card features the Bootiful Occasions stamp set (131967 wood, or 126597 clearmount) and some fun punches. I cased this card from SCS but now can't remember the gal's name. It includes lots of bling on the hat and boots! Gotta love the bling!

Here is card number 2:
This card features the curly and cute stamp set and the hounds tooth embossing folder and some fun flowers. It also features the new Candy Dots. They add just a pop of color without the bulk of some other embellishment, but could also be put on a brad base and be used just like a brad.

I'll be back soon with cards 3 through 5 from my stamp camp and the card I did for the shoe box swap too.

Have a great day. Smiles,
