This is the layout I did for Treasured Memories Design Team. I looked at the paper and embellies and knew I had to scrap the photos I had of Chloe, my Yorkie. It was quite a challenge trying to get the photos for her "To Do List" but I think I accomplished it. She is now 7 months old and weighs 3 lbs. I think she may be as big as she will get. She is tiny but what a whirlwind! Very tenacious--must be the Terrier! But she is also very free with her puppy kisses, unless you happen to be one of our cats. Our house used to be very calm and quiet but no more.In a couple weeks our daughter, Sam and her husband, Fred are coming for a visit. They are bringing their "baby" Tonka with them. Now Tonka is an English Bulldog who weighs 60lbs. I think Chloe may have the vapors over that! I will let you know how that goes. Keep your fingers crossed!
I am finally getting back to normal after the Mega Crop in Rayne. It ws so much fun and a really nice way to catch up with all our scrapping friends. Both my daughters were with me and so was our sweet friend, Thuy. She came all the way from Dallas. It was so nice to spend the weekend with them. Next year's crop is going to be at the same place--Rayne Civic Center--in July. It was a perfect venue! Plus having a food/beverage bar available saved so much time for cropping. Thanks, Janet for such a fun time!And Cassidy and Dakota were wonderful! I took several classes and really enjoyed them. I have to take some photos of the finished projects and will post them later.
I went to my stitch group on Wednesday night at Stitch n Frame on Ridge Road. We meet every third Wednesday of the month at 6PM. It is an informal group and is a lot of fun. I am a needlepointer (yes, I have ANOTHER hobby!) and really enjoy getting together with all my stitching friends. If you stitch, feel free to join us! We'd love to have you join us!
I certainly am going to miss Treasured Memories during the three months they will be closed. The new store sounds like it will be awesome. I am so happy for Janet. I will waiting for the Grand Opening on November 1. I am also curious who the teacher will be for the class being held! It's a secret for now! I guess I will put quite a dent in my stash with no shop open here in Lafayette! That may be a good thing because then I can really shop when Janet opens! We'll all have withdrawal by November for sure!
It has been fun talking with you--until next time.....

It is so nice to take a class, find photos for it and put it in an album. All within a week! This is a class I took last Tuesday at Treasured Memories. The teacher was Wendy Reaux. Her classes are always so much fun and we learn all kinds of new techniques. She is the Queen of "clustering"! I really enjoyed this class. Now if I could only match photos to some of my other classes I would be very happy. All in good time.
Erin and I went to Michael's last night during their big sale. Everything was reduced and we each used a 40% off one item coupon and then a 15% off entire total coupon. Sure do love saving BIG! Stocked up on some stuff to take to the Crop. We may have to get a trailer to take everthing with us! LOL
Well enough for now. Hope you enjoy the photos.

I had so much fun doing this project. Sometimes I need to do something that has all the instructions and is all thought out in advance by someone else! It keeps me sane I think. Jenni Bowlin has some really neat projects on her site. Sometimes they are sold out immediately so you have to check back often. Anyway, I think this turned out quite nicely and it makes me happy just looking at it. Hope you enjoyed looking too!

Thought I would post some photos of last month's layout. I am working on this month's and want to tell you--it is so cute. But you won't be able to see it until I turn it in to Janet though.
Is everyone getting ready for the Mega Crop in Rayne? I can't wait! I will be cropping with my two daughters so it will really be fun. And I am looking forward to seeing all our friends there. Thuy is coming in from Dallas too! Now if I can just get everything packed. Okay so let's see if I can upload some photos! See you in Rayne!
