Hope you like it, Julie.

A couple weeks ago I received some happy mail from Brazil. My wonderfully talented friend, Georgia sent me a surprise with Flip Flops, Chocolate and ribbon. Well she sent a similar surprise to Julie…. So I asked Julie to make a layout with our flip flops. She did individual layouts one for her and one for me { the one for me will be posted Friday} Check out her blog here to see her awesome talent!!!!

Here is the layout I made that I will be sending to her… I used my photo and hers together…. I also did this with Jenneke and our aprons… I love doing this because all my blog friends are so far apart…in some really cool way it brings us together on a page…..Hugs to Georgia for the Happy Mail and Hugs to Julie for the Happy Feet!!!!

Big Green “BUG”!!!

The coolest bug I have ever seen!!!

The coolest bug I have ever seen!!!

Okay… So here is the story….. My husband is “trying” to grow a tomatoe plant in a pot. He says he is doing this because if he plants it in the ground the ants will get to it! Well it is not working out so well and today he told me he was just going to kill the plant and start over fresh… When he went to go get it I was walking behind him… He jumped up in the air and backwards…. I think it is funny when he does this but most of the time he is running from a bee. He is 6ft 2 inches and runs from bugs…

He hehehehehe..LOL.

Well this time he jumped and ran but I did not see any bee. Just this fabulous creature….sitting on my husbands tomatoe plant. He is gorgeous… I love his coloring. I am so scrapping this. So as he is jumping and running to get away from the bug I am running in the house hoping it does not fly away so I can get a picture of it…. I wish you could have been here to see it all go down… Pretty funny.

I will be at a Womens Conference with my church all weekend… So I pray everyone is healthy and that you have a fabulous weekend. Much Love, Amy

My boys have spent the last 2 weeks at My mother-in-laws… Summer at Grandmas… They do not want to come home. I can’t even bribe them to come home. Soooo, That means some wonderful Mother Daughter time. Well Alex has herself as of last week  boyfriend…. What?/lksdjgnukjdhgb vnk…….AHHHHHHHHHHH!

My one true love is sharing ideas and creativity with those around me. What better way to do it than to teach at a scrapbook store…. I love it and I am so excited that Denise from Scrapbook and Co in Baton Rouge has asked me to teach at her store….We are putting our heads together for some awesome projects…. Check out her Blog for details.

Denise gave me a pretty cool Teresa Collins project kit to work with and I finally will be able to teach the Ice cream Box project kit from Jenni Bowlin….

Several months back I emailed Jenni Bowlin and asked her permission to teach some of the awesome projects she was creating on her blog. She said “Yes” I love Jenni Bowlin and love to share that with others. She does some really great techniques with her crepe paper in this project.

There is so much inspiration out there so these classes I am teaching are kits from 2 very talented ladies in the industry…. Teresa Collins and Jenni Bowlin. But keep checkin’ cause my wheels are spinnin’ with some great ideas for new projects. The weekend event has me truly inspired if I could just get all my supplies organized. I could sit and scrap for days.
