Hey everyone. I meant to post before I left, but life and laundry and packing got in the way. A good friend of mine goes to Eagle Crest every year, and this year she invited us along. Well, my husband and oldest stayed behind to work, but me and the other three kids are along for the ride. We took off yesterday morning and after about a four hour drive we arrived. It is breathtakingly beautiful. The weather is perfect, the kids are having a blast in the pools and bike riding. I am enjoying the peace and quiet and comfort of the condo. From the top balcony, we can see the snow topped mountains... it is awesome! I will post photos when I get home.
So, I've been meaning to post about a new product that I recently got. You all know how much I love my Scor-pal. And, for the record, I do not get paid or compensated when I post about products. Of course when you are on a design team, you get the stamps for free, but as far as posting about products, I only speak the truth about how much I like or dislike them.... well, there isn't much I can say that I dislike... yet. But, some products are above and beyond cool. Of course they are my opinions only. The Scor-pal is one of those tools that I honestly use EVERYDAY and has made my paper crafting life SO much easier. So, the other day, I got the Scor-mat. I was thrilled when I heard that Diana was in the mist of designing this. I often start by scoring my card and then end up leaving it out and coloring or finishing up my project right in the tray. The Scor-mat is AWESOME. It fits right inside the tray, one side is a self-healing, the other is a hard service. PERFECT for stamping on or working on your projects. SO, I have to tell you, when packing up my van for our trip, I was debating on whether to bring any stamping stuff, but I threw in my Scor-pal, Scor-mat and some Copic Markers along with some stamped images all into my Scor-Pal bag. It took up very little room, it's light weight and I can sit and color right in my lap while watching the kids in the pool. How cool is that? I'm thrilled. I love you Diana Crick!!!!
Okay.. enough gushing about my awesome Scor-mat. I'm going to be in heaven until Wednesday, then we head back to the coast. On Thursday my youngest, Averie, will turn 6 years old..... I am in denial that she will be gone to school all day in September. We are celebrating her birthday this weekend at the cabin and she can't wait. It will be a busy week indeed. So, I won't post again until Wednesday or Thursday. I got an email from a super sweet reader that said she worries about me, or that something had happened to my Grandma when I didn't post for a few days. How sweet is that? Man, I have met the nicest people of my life in this stamping hobby of mine. So, don't worry, I'll be back, I'm just taking a little break and having some fun with the kids before the school schedule is upon us. Thanks SO much for stopping by and visiting me...... and you know your comments make my days!
Thank goodness for Internet and Brad's laptop, I did place my first SU! order out of the new catalog, so I will have that to look forward to next week. Oh, I'm in trouble... I want it all. It's madness I tell yah.
Okay..... back to the pool with the kids. Have a great rest of the week!!
