Where has the time gone?

I know it has been forever since I have blogged. I actually have not been doing too much crafting. I just haven't felt like it. I really miss my dog Dixen. So much that we are awaiting a home visit so another greyhound can pick us to be their home. I think we are going to welcome 2 into our house, and maybe even foster one. I think greyhounds are the best pets and they really need us to help educate everyone on how great they are!! I went on a retreat a couple of weeks ago, and it was just for fun, not for work. I had a great time and did get about 7 pages done. I will try to post some of them. I actually got to sew today. I made 2 purses for my friend Sherri's daughters. They love my purses and I love making them for them.

Yeah 2 more layouts

My goal today was to do 2 layouts to teach at the store. It is now 11:35 and I just finished the 2nd one, so I did it!! The first one is a first birthday layout using the new Creative Imaginations Melange birthday line. I used my new favorite technique on it twice. I learned from Heidi Swapp how to use crepe paper sprayed with glimmer mist and then stamped. I gathered it under embellishments to make it look like a ruffle. The second page is for March Madness. It is a basketball themed layout using some of the new Reminisce Real Sports paper and Teresa Collins Sports Edition paper. I used another one of my favorite techniques on this page. I used a strip of coordination cardstock and ran it through my dyno gun to say basketball and then sanded it.
