Rock-n-Roll Album

Well it’s time to start rocking and rolling our way into summer so I have decided to create an album for just that sentiment. I am creating a rock-n-roll album that has guitars, hearts, and graphic designs and really cool colors that all match throughout the album.

The album has many different styles flowing through its pages. Now to pages are the same as far as layouts are concerned. I have some pages with titles, some without; some pages with double matted areas some without. The stickers, papers, and words used to put on the pages are all matching and the same rock and roll theme.

I will be posting pictures in a few days. This album will be available to purchase if you are interested. Just contact me for pricing. I will be creating other wonderfully themed albums for anyone who is interested in purchasing. These make wonderful gifts, for yourselves and others. I know that most people following my blog scrap already, but sometimes I know myself and others do not always have time to create for others. Also I have been asked lately if I ever run out of ideas on how to create new layout ideas.

Well the answer to running out of ideas is not really. If I feel that I am not able to create something that looks remotely different then I start doing research on the computer or through some of my magazines. This looking through magazines is not limited to just looking at scrapbooking magazines but cooking magazines, news magazines, or anything that you normally you might like to read. Start by looking at the layouts of the ads. I have made many page layouts that turned out wonderfully by using the color schemes and layout ideas from all types of magazines.

Have you ever thought using all types of magazines for layout ideas? Please let me know if you have and if possible then send photos of how it worked out for you.
Good luck in creating wonderful keepsakes for your family and friends and I look forward to sharing more details on the different albums that I create as well as the different fund raisers that I will be working.

Happy Scrapping until we talk again!

so. Lyon Boy Scout Event

Well another successful event. The So. Lyon Boy Scout had a low turnout but that does not mean that fun, laughter and friendliness was not available. The ladies that were in attendence made up truly for all those that were unable to attend. The raffle prizes as always were excellant. I always enjoy purchasing the raffle tickes for $1 for three chances.

Every hour there is a new raffle item and then at the end of the day there are many raffle prizes for another $1 for three chances available. Some of the prizes were beautiful plantes to jump start your planting this spring and some beautifully tall and full trees. Besides those prizes there were many donations for great scrapbooking supplies, jewelry, car washes and much more.

The food like always was excellant with muffins, coffee cakes, coffees with flavored milks, tea, water and of course soda. Lunch was Jimmy John's sandwiches there was turkey, veggie, and roast beef. Chips, carrot cake, chocolate brownies with icing and pretzels that were flavored was available.Dinner was just as good, it was a like a Ziti bake with salad, and garlic bread. It was yummy!!!

As always I had a great time with a great group of ladies! It has been my pleasure to be a part of the group! It has been four years now that I have been a part of their group. They have taken me under their wings and made me feel like an old friend now. I know just about everyone that attends this crop as well as most of the crops that I attend. I try and introduce myself to all those that attend and offer my services to help them out in any way that I can. My products are available to all as well as those materials that I have so that people can use try them and use them on their layouts.

I try and have laout ideas on hand for those to copy form my paper packs, and now I have the cricut so that if anyone is need for a something special or title I am able to cut those out for them also. I have also showed some croppers how to use the design studio that I have hooked up to my computer. I really love this product, since it has made cutting designs out much easier. I am currently creating a Tinker Bell and Friends 8 x 8 album that is simply adorable. I am having to much in creating this album.

I hope that more people will be able to attend this event and any other event that I attend in the future.

Happy Scrapping today and everyday!
