While I was in Germany visitingBelinda's Studio B in April, we were researching high and low to find crafty things to make, and we found this handy organizer! Now, all that I can tell you is we got the video from Dawn's Stampin' Thoughts BUT....I can't remember what this is called to direct you to the video!! I know, this move has frazzled my brain to no end! But, no fear, I will locate it and then update for all of you!

It turned out soo pretty once we were finished! I'll be making some of these to gift I think! What a cute organizer!

Have a scrap-tastic day!

Almost Alaska time!!

So sorry for the lack of posts! Like I've mentioned before, we are a military family so we move often. Finally after 6 long years, its time to head back to America!! Its so real now that the movers came, packed, and loaded the trucks.

I watched my crafty fun things get boxed into little cardboard prisons. (If you listen carefully, you can hear them yelling for their freedom.) :( So, that said I won't be making anything new until mid-July :(. But, still have loads of things that I haven't posted, so I'm going to try and stretch them until I get my things back.

I went to Las Vegas, NV. for the first time May 5-9th for one of my bestest friends wedding. Yes, indeed it was a planned LV wedding and I got to be a bridesmaid! It was beautiful and well worth the long flight from London!

Royal Wedding!

So here I was all geared up to really hammer down some posts this week. I looked up challenges, made a few cards and then got swept away doing other things. Sorry about that. Our current PTO has very few active volunteers, and as president I feel I have to be at our events. That's just part of my duties! So, needless to say, I wasn't able to post my cards on time and on and on...

So, lets start with Friday and then I'll post what I did earlier in week. We all know what Friday, April 29th was..... Will and Kate's Royal wedding!!  Living here in England, we had to partake! (no, not going to the wedding, although I know loads who went) Kathy's card swap was a Royal wedding party as well!! Its a whole different vibe here in the UK about the wedding. I think it was a nice break from all the terrible things going on in the news. It also sorta unified the country for just a few hours and it was real happiness.  See below for the pics. (I realize I didn't get good pics…
