Two Scrapbook Classes in TWO days!!

Wow! I almost never get the luxury of taking a scrapbook class... but not only did I get to take one... I took TWO... in TWO days! LOL! I had so much fun!

Both classes were at the Scrappin Bunny in McKinney (I just love Emily & Jodi!) Yesterday was with Mr. Pickle himself, Lance Anderson. We made a really fun round book with sliders.

It was cute and Lance was very funny. He told us the story about how they came to name the business Rusty Pickle... cute story. His jokes were a little elementary, but I think he was faking it! LOL!

But today's class was taught by Staci Etheridge. She is a contributing editor for Making Memories magazine and on the design team for KI Memories. She taught us how to make this adorable little HAPPY book from Cosmo Cricket.

It was really great to meet Staci today... she's really cute and bubbly and I like her style alot. The pictures she put in her HAPPY book were so unique! I like the picture of the inside of her new front load washer... it made her happy! I can totally relate to that! And of course the picture of her camera... I think she named it "David"?. I could be wrong... help me out Staci! My memory isn't what it use to be... lol! I haven't named my camera yet. Haven't had a camera long enough to name it! Long story... but let's just say that I am Camera Challenged!

Well... gotta go to bed now. Today was a really nice day. Let me leave you with an email that I got from my baby sister who lives in Tampa... it brought tears to my eyes and gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. Tell me what you think... leave a comment... i know who your lurkers are!! LOL!

This was in response to my earlier blog today:

Wow!! It looked like you girls had so much fun. I know that was exciting looking at all those beautiful dresses. And I liked your blog. I never knew you were a Proverbs 31 it ..starting with verse 10... A wife of noble character who can find? She is far worth more than rubies..(your birthstone ruby) Her husband is full of confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good not harm all the days of her life. She selects wool (aka scrapbook material) and flax (chicken and dumplings) and works with eager hands. She is like a merchant ships ( The USS Tammy Skinner) bringing her food from afar ( from Walmart) She gets up while it is still dark ( but her mind is not up yet) she provided food for her family ( makes Matt his lunch before school) and portions her servant girls.. ( The numerous people she has had living in her home over the years) She considers a field and buys it (started a business) out of her earnings. She plants a vineyard...( scrapbooks memories of her family to be passed down generation to they will never forget the love) She sets about her work vigoursly..(up at 6am..being PROUDUCTIVE)..her arms are strong for tasks..(LOL..from moving get strong)...skip down to verse 23 Her husband is respected at the city gate where he takes his seat amoung the elders of the land...(Baylor ..he has created a good name for himself) she makes linen from garments and sells them. and supplies the merchants with sashes; She is clothed with strength and dignity..she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction is on her tongue. (over the years all the artwork you have done..and the pride in that ..and all the heartache you still laugh..cause you know where your strength comes from..nothing will get you down..not for long..that is for sure). She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness...(very seldom does she just sit down and watch her favorite shows)....Her children arise and and call her blessed..her husband also and he praises her..(the kids lean on you..Patch, Samantha, and Matt..and Glenn really respects you). Many women do noble things but you surpass them all. Charm is decepetive and beauty is fleeting but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned. and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. I love you Tammy your little sister Tina

Wasn't that sweet! Thanks Tina! I'm gonna put that in my scrapbook! I love you too!

Me & my little sister

Good night all.
