Beaver Hollow 2012

Less than 2 weeks to go for the Annual 3 day Beaver Hollow Scrapbook Retreat! I get so nervous every year, thinking I am going to forget to bring something important.  I have already started packing. But how do you ever really know everything you are going to need?  Luckily there will be several friends there this year, so we can count on each other to have anything one of us might forget.

Because of the time of the year, I will be working on Christmas pictures again. This was the first Christmas in a long time that there was no snow. I will miss scrapping snow pictures, but I really have not missed the lack of snow one bit. We had a few inches in January, but nothing like the snow we usually get here in the Buffalo NY area.

If anyone has any tips on what to pack for a weekend scrapbooking retreat, I would love to hear them!

First H2H Challenge for January 2012

The Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week is to find a stamp that you haven't used yet and put it to use!! Or, if you have used them all  find one that hasn't seen any ink in awhile and get stamping with it!  I used an old stamp set and an old paper pack to create a new card...

CTMH Layout

This layout is based on a sketch from the Heart 2 Heart Blog.  I used the CTMH Sophia Paper Pack and the butterfly from the Hot Diggity Stamp Set.  I also cut out the words with my Gypsy and Cricut using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge.
