I know you don't have to panic, but I love pansey's! I had so much fun making this card with the butterfly punch and it was soooooo simple. This week at Uptown Cards we will make several cards with pansey's. I love pansey's! Did I already say that??? Oh well if you would like to join in just drop me an email!

Preserving Memories University- Follow Up!

Hi Everyone,

As I promised here are a few pictures of wonderful pages we created at my scrapbooking class. We made 20 quick pages in four hours. I was so proud of my group. Some of the ladies did not want to scrapbook pages so they made cards. This was really a great class and a quick way to make 20 scrapbook pages in just a few hours. If you are interested in attending this type of class, please send me a email so that you can be contacted for future events.


Mother's Day Weekend

Hi everyone,I had a great Mother's Day weekend. We started our weekend out on Thursday with a trip to Boca Grande. My husband loves to fish and builds boats as a hobby. The Boat Builders Association that he belongs to had a reunion and all the boat builders brought their boats and stayed for the weekend. Below is my husband microdraft boat.





This is the view outside of my room. At this hotel a boat slip came with the room.

Then across the street was the beach.


Down the beach a little ways was the Boca Grande Light House.
Then on Sunday we came home and both my children,  along with my Mother and Father, came over for dinner. My wonderful hubby cooked chicken wings and my wonderful children helped. I had a wonderful Mother's Day! Hope everyone else did too.
