Easter Cards

Today I went with my sister to a friends house to make Easter Cards. Pictures here are the two cards that I made. She had everything pre cut and charged us $1.00 per card! She sells the stamps for a company called Stampin Up! but made no sales pitch she just wanted everyone to have fun creating. She had wine and juice and tea and snacks as well. There were 7 ladies and it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. She is thinking of doing this every month and it is something I would do again. She also gave me an old catalogue which had a lot of ideas on how to use the stamps which would work for digital scrapbooking.

Not much going on around her this week but I did find an interesting site with free media such as photos and music called Wikamedia there are a lot of public domain photos and it is best to search for what you are looking for. I was looking at "latest files" but the odd pornographic photo would show up ( 1 in 300)so now I just search for what I am looking for. My next quest will be for fish or fishing things to see if I can get inspired for the June Mega Kit and I founds lots of interesting things

These are a couple public domain pictures I will play with

New Toys

Yesterday (Sunday) we went shopping and I bought myself an all-in-one HP printer. It is a HPC7280 and I love it. The print quality is excellent and I have been printing the pages for Paul's book. I also bought a case to carry my laptop so I think I am done shopping for awhile. We have a few ideas of trips we would like to do in the fall so it is time to start saving for that.
After shopping and visiting John's Mom at the nurseing home we went to his sister's for a lovely supper. Gayle finished off the evening with her wonderful spanish coffee always a treat when we visit her.

Here is a layout I did using After Dinner by Bonnie vanEsch;

Busy weekend and a freebie

We left after I finished work at noon on Friday to go to visit my son Christopher and family in Cornwall and it was a nice trip, no rain and daylight all the way. We got there in time for the twins 9th birthday dinner and party afterwards and Sharon and family (except for Paul who was at cadets) were there too. On Saturday we watched Alexandre play his last hockey game for the season and took Patrick to bowling. We also went to the computer store and bought me a laptop!!!!!!!! I am having lots of fun with that. We left CW's in the afternoon and went to Greely to see Sean's new house. It is a beautiful home and they have lots of room. The cabin in the backyard is a bonus too. They also have a new kitten called Zasha and hope to get a second one soon. We spent the night there and went to church at 9 on Sunday and came back to the house for a wonderful breakfast before heading home.

Now here is your St. Patrick's Day Freebie:

March Already!

I can't believe it is March already! Everyone is thinking Spring. The blue flowers are poking there silly heads through the frozen ground.
All I have been doing lately is spending money. There are just too many birthdays this time of the year. I also think it is time I took the plunge and buy myself a lap top.
Next weekend we are going to C and O to visit our sons.
I have been busy at RAK's making prizes and doing layouts (LO's) Here is one of my latest with a baby picture of me.
