We have continued to bring the best to Chesapeake even in this economy. If you have not visited the store, do so, you won't regret it. Also we have a website..our blog.. You can sign up on there as well to get our newsletter that is absolutely the best. I am proud to be a part of AAS and continue to help and teach everyone. So vote for my store...(well it actually is Bob & Rogene Mason's store) but we call it ours because we work there and we feel this is a big part of our life..after join me in voting for the best Scrapbook Supply Store ...starts on MARCH 14th..

Other worthy notes, Held the Shabby Sweet Pea class last night and the wonderful ladies that came out and joined me are just awesome. Thank you to all of you. I hope you are inspired to keep making your layouts, and adding a bit of decor to your home with your creative pages.
If you missed the class, get with me and I will see what I can do to help you. Next late in the works but that is due to oral surgery! Easter Mini Album April 1st, $25, I had set this to be March 24th but well, that just did not happen! Pictures will be up soon.

On March 25th we fly out to Colorado to see our new lil granddaughter, Gwenevere. We are excited, its also hubby's first time flying & Savanna's. Excited about seeing her...and can't wait to get more pictures!!! This will be a fun experience flying with guess watching him and his reactions..hahahaha.

In May..there will be the big event, National Scrapbook Day, First Saturday in May..believe its May 1st ...come and join us for cropping, make-n-takes, fun new products and most of all, share the day with other scrappers. I will be holding a Mothers - Daughter-Sister Crop with a layout to go with this day. Second Saturday of the Month, look for more details coming..

Special prayers going out to my Uncle in Alabama, as he battles with end stage COPD, he has been hanging in there, being very brave and strong. He is my hero, along with my dad. He is my dads only brother, sibling. I am heading there soon. Details will be revealed later, as I am surprising him, once again. And for Nancy & dear cousins, who are taking care of him and doing a great job, I miss you guys terribly, and I am counting the time down till I get there..

Whats new with me, well I think I summarized what is going on and what is to come, however, we are planning our camping trips accordingly, and anxiously waiting for those times to arrive! Savanna has her Recital coming up for Ballet/ June..that is exciting, as she tried on her costumes the other night, no the parents did not get to see, and I was not there, Steve took her..I was home from having a tiring day with pain from oral surgery. I can't wait to use the paper I bought, by Karen Foster, Ballerina...oh yeah..with the papers and pictures..I can see it in my head already! I do believe her Ballet pics will take up an entire 12x12..hahaha..we shall see.

and thought for the day, have you tried Smooch, have you seen the colors?..come by the store..oh to figure out where I put, is called Taffy..what more could I say..the fine brush on this allows you to add this beautiful color to add a touch of creative color to any paper, embellishment, even flowers..I edged my flowers on the Shabby Sweet Pea layout with Taffy Smooch, beautiful ...yummy to find that Smooch in my stash...I so need to get my room back to being yourself well..cuz you got a job to do...:o)

Look for more updates now I must sign off and get ready for work..
