Granted, I don't even have time to thread the bobbin until I get back from Lake Tahoe (crud, I still have to pack) but once I get this baby up and running, I'll start creating and posting. Alright, off to pack and then away I go.......
I'm leaving tonight for Lake Tahoe, going up with my in-laws for the weekend to their cabin. Apparently we're all going on a bike ride....now I haven't been on a bike in 20 years so this should be interesting. I did "get" on a bike about 3 years ago, once I was on it I rode right down the driveway and straight into a parked car. Yup....I got off the bike, put it back in the garage and went back up to my craft room where I belong. So wish me luck....if you don't hear from me by Monday then please send "get well" cards to the local hospital in Tahoe. ;)

"OMG I'M TOTALLY GOING!!!!"...I think Christie started laughing AT me, matter of fact I'm sure of it. ;) But that's how I react to these things. So, I booked! If anyone else signs up to go let me know, I would love to get our dining tables together and also plan crops & stamp events together!!! HOW FUN!!!! I'm so excited because I've been on one cruise and it was with Royal Caribbean and the food was FANTASTIC and all I heard from other passengers was how horrible the other cruise lines were compared to the Royal Caribbean cruise line. So I've vowed to only go on lines that I've heard GOOD things about (Princess, Celebrity & Royal Caribbean). And they are doing this with Royal Caribbean!!! YIPPEEEE!! So if you're going, drop me a note.....I want to meet you all!!!

I LOVE HER!!!! First, she is SO great to color....you can use her for the guy in your life during football season and make her cheer outfit in his favorite team colors....you can use it for a Congrats, Birthday, Celebrate, Get Well or just about anything!!! You could even give it to someone for a Wedding since there is a matching phrase that says "You Did it!". LOL I had so much fun playing with her last night....maybe it's because these little gals are like Barbies for adults (much easier to store however). I enjoyed using this layout from Barb Guinan, the winner of the weekly SIYJ card challenge (congrats Barb!) I used my supplies from my PP box, added a little doodle and tah dah!!! Not sure if you can see the glittah in her pom-poms (I mean that literally, not figuratively) but it really makes her sparkle and my hubby even said "She's kinda cute....too bad she's a stamp" ;) HAHAHAHAH TOO FUNNY!!!

This one is from Kristine (by PPDT sistah) I love the DP on it, she always finds the cutest papers!!!!This is from Julie Masse (another PPDT sistah) and contained some fabulous images for me to play with (sorry, can't show ya just yet) ;) I just love how simple yet TOTALLY adorable this card is. I've been dying to get my hands on that Faux Ribbon set over at Papertreyink and now I think I've been sold on it. Oh and Jules, I MUST have that ribbon!!! :)
This is from Julie Campbell (another PPDT sistah) and I was her DT Sistah this week for the weekly PPDT challenge which was dry embossing....she didn't have a brass stencil or even a light box so she created her own template using a flower die cut and chipboard!!! Isn't that fabulous!?!?! She's so clever!
Lastly, this arrived from an unknown address.....and when I opened it up I was just in awe. This is a RAK from Kandi Kwirant from the Paper Pretties Yahoo group and she just wanted to wish me a big "congrats" for making the PP Design Team. Isn't that sweet?!?!!
