Mall of America Visit

Yesterday we arrived in Minnesota and I went to Mall of America. It is a very large even huge place. It has an amusement park in back with several roller coaster other different rides, face painting, balloons and other stuff. The Mall itself has sooo many stores, the anchor ones, Bloomingdale, Macys, Nordstorm & Sears. There are over 520 stores, 50 restaurants plus there is no sales tax on clothing or shoes. Within those 520 stores is an Archiver's. That was my favorite spot. See the above picture to see my purchase. A TH book, 2 sets of rubber stamp sets for cling stamp and ezmount stamp storage, an autum sentiment stamp.

The Lucky Eagle

Up here in the state of Washington passing through the Redwoods to get here. I think I have had my fill of Redwood tree. But Washington is pretty and green and the weather is very pleasant. The mornings are cool enough for a light jacket and then the day is beautiful.

Today is DH birthday. I made this card for him hope he likes it.

Oh and the title The Luck Eagle is a casino where we are parked. You park free as long as you go to the casino and play. Well, I left that to him. I can't see my craft $$$$ in the slot machine.

Recipe for card: I used Sassafras paper line, colorbox emblishment, stampe a clock, inside sentiment is TH, dot is 7 gypsies tape. TFL! Leave a comment.

Things To Do in the Redwood Forest

We are still traveling and have reached the Redwood trees in Northern California. These photos were taken at the drive thur tree . This tree was one of the trees in the forest fire sometime before 1976 because then some later a tunnel was mad through the tree and you can actually drive through the trunk of this enormous giant known as the Tour Thru Tree. It is located in Klamath, CA. We saw a man driving an Escalade thur the tree. This was truly amazing. We parked our RV and walked thru as you can tell it was not tall enough for the RV. Thanks for looking. Leave me a message if you have visited this site.

I have not posted anything because my camera and I have been separated for 2 weeks now. Just some good news, my granddaughter was born Tuesday morning at 4:18 am, weighing in at 8 lbs 15 ozs. 20 3/4 in long. I think she is just adorable and named after her Grama-T to boot. I could bore you with my pictures but I will only post one.

Little Mermaid

My 6th Grand Daughter attended a camp this year titled 'The Mermaid Camp". She had something excited to tell after each day. One day they went to the Marsh and she told me she fell into the water out of the canoe. She doesn't like water in her eyes, well who does but she said and I cried Gram-ma, of course I said that's okay. She has so many expressions that I wish I could capturethem in pictures, they are so cute. These cuts were made from the cart 'Dreams Come True', the papers are from a pack I got at WM in the clearance isle but it did not have a cover. It was solid double side paper very beautiful and it was only .50 a pack of 30 sheets 5 different colors. Great deal! This cut is called the icon. Not sure of this cut but I cut it non-the-less. I plan to make her a mini album to put some pictures in and something about her camp.

On The Road Again

Traveling through Texas we see all these windmill fields. They were all over the place on both sides of the interstate. Of course they all were not running for whatever reason. Driving through it looked sorta spacey.

This is an oil drill just behind a big gas station. Maybe the oil has to be processed but I thought it interesting to be place just behind the station.

Stamp Addict Card Swap

I'm late in posting these since our meeting was last week. We had a very fun meeting except we were missing our project teacher. She was not able to be at the meeting but she got a standing and she did very well for her. These are the cards from our swap.

This is the project we made for this month.
We decided that our next month we will each have a card station. This is where each person will decide how a card is to be made and have the supplies for all to make. Sort of like in kindergarten where you have stations we will have card stations themes of your choice.

I have another Tag. This one is a entry to Platinum Scraps go check those designer out they are fantastic. This week the challenge was to the Cricut cart Forever Young. On this tag I use as the background white cs and edged it with a distressing tool and inked it with Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet distress inks and a TH stamp and a flourish. Then added some fibers and safety pin and garment pin to hand a nice butterfly charm, prima flower and button.

Over The Top Tag Swap

I finally finish all 21 of these "Over The Top Tags" and mailed them. I should get some pretty good one back. But in the mean time this is how and what I did with these. The tag measure 3 x 7 and the back is black chipboard. The background is distressed with Distress Victorian Velvet on my craft sheet and spray with water. The side are distress with same ink. I stamped the script stamp with perfect medium and covered with perfect pearls - pearls stamp TH stamps and the dress form in Distress ink. The flower I made it out of rice paper 2 x2 in size and folded to make a triangle 3 times, the cut out a petal, sprayed it with cherry smoothie Memories Mists. Tied some fibers and there you have it.

A Party Favor or Decoration

These are pictures of a project I finished today after several trials with my Design Studio. After calling Provo Craft 3 times today I have it working. I enjoy using this software when it works. This little purse is so cute and not that hard to make. It is cut from the Forever Young cart. Once this little purse was cut I used my Scor-Pal to make the creases . The cricut cuts the slits in the inside to hold it together so there is no glue used. There is also a slit in the front that is used to hold the purse closed. I use the pink cs and inked the edges with memento rose bud ink, the flowers are cut with white and purple that you can't see because I put the MS glitter over it. added some bling a the top and the same flower in the back. The last picture is the inside.

Another Stamp Addicts cards swap

These are the cards received at my Stamping Addict meet up last night. We always have a great time when we get together. I did not have cards to swap this time so I will have to make double for next month. At this meeting I was the program director. We did some Tim Holtz techniques for the Tim Holtz Pandemonium. We all had a great time sharing things and learning things for others. This project will take us 2 months to finish only because we have allotted 2 hrs for our night out.
