The schedules at work were re-arranged so I was lucky enough to have off the Saturday of the annual stamp show in Allentown, PA. It’s about 20 minutes away and I had a free ticket! I tried to do some vlogging while I was there, but didn’t want to interrupt everyone’s shopping as I wasn’t alone. Hope you enjoy going shopping with me!
Happy Easter everyone! I hope you had a good day celebrating this special time with family and friends.
I completed this layout earlier in the month for a use your scraps challenge, that I ultimately missed due to our camera breaking 🙁 It’s currently out for repair and the estimate is 4-6 weeks. I’m taking pictures from my phone so please bear with the quality for awhile.
I like the way the layout came out, but I could use some help with the title. I was thinking something along the lines of skee-ball or play-ball since it was M’s first time seeing the boardwalk games, but I just can’t come up with a placement idea, or design, I like. Any suggestions?
I also kept on a roll with my love of glitter. I felt the page needed some items of interest, but not necessarily more layering embellishments. I just outlined some of the flowers to add pop, but not too much. I didn’t know if you could see it in the full picture so I grabbed an up close of one section.
I think when I go to the show next month I need to buy more glitter colors and I’m really loving the pop it adds to my papers. I’d love to hear what your favorite glitter companies and colors are…Drop me a comment!
I don’t usually read anything history related, but I loved this! The writing was simple enough to be interesting, but not so simple it was boring.
I enjoyed getting to know all the main players and the “extras.” I actually looked up the tour Jackie gave of the Whitehouse on youtube, after that section of the book. I don’t really know what I expected, but WOW did she sound like a stepford wife! Maybe the movie was based on her???
I have to say that I unfortunately don’t think America, as it stands today, would react the same way as 1963 if something so tragic happened to any of the recent Presidents. I think it would be more – oh so sad and move on 🙁
If nothing else the book has made me want to read more on the topic. Oh, and I loved the little surprise at the end too about the reporter.
I was finally able to get the second part of my glitter tutorial edited and up on you tube. Personally, I prefer the heat and stick powder, but I think the option in this second video is a great idea for beginners since it requires so little investment in new supplies. I also use it in places that I could get my Versa Mark stamp pad. Give it a watch and let me know what you think!
I recently made two scrapbook pages using glitter, and each page used a different technique. A few friends asked me to do a tutorial on how I did each one, and I was more than happy to comply. Below is part one. This requires more tools that part two, but is very simple. I’ll try to get part two up tomorrow. I’d also love to hear what you use glitter on.
