Most of you know that I was at the BC Crop for Kids this past weekend, and as usual it was a lot of Fun! The classes were all completely different offering something for everyone, but it was the Make-and-Takes that really inspired me! I made a necklace using a metal Washer and Glossy Accents and a Card with the Kee-utest pair of Owls using a new Stampin’ Up punch (which I HAD to order!) I watched the ladies make a multitude of cute tags, and LoveBug Scrapbooking did an adorable mini album that showcased this crazy adhesive melting gem attaching tool, and the prettiest shimmer paint you ever saw! I also got to play with a punch by Creative Memories that has 2 shapes in one, a scallop circle, and then flip the switch and you have an eyelet scallop circle! Gosh, you’d think I don’t get out much! And those were only the make-and-takes I actually saw! There were tons more when I was off teaching classes, it was amazing!
But really, the best part of the weekend was when Andrew, Ella and I got to go to Laity Pumpkin Patch on Sunday to celebrate our anniversary (Thank you to everyone who sent us your best wishes!). Pam and Mary, you were SO right, we had a great time, Ella loved it and I got some awesome pictures, to scrapbook using the kits I got from the Crop! Can’t wait to get home tonight to work on the “Fun with Fabrics” layouts, I was so envious watching Chriss, Lori and Erica enjoying the class, sigh, one day I’ll make sure I set aside the time to actually TAKE a class instead of just the Kit! And speaking of classes, a lot of our upcoming ones are either sold out or almost full, so be sure to call us if you were interested in any. I’ve marked the times that are close to filling up!

Last week, Ella and I stopped in at Tim’s to grab my customary “Breakfast on the Go” and as Ella jumped out of the car, she stopped to grab 2 pennies from her stash of treasures in the car door handle.
When we made it up to the front of the line, I placed the order, an Ice Cap for me, a Chocolate Milk for her, and started to hand the Clerk my Debit card. Ella cried “No Mommy!” and slapped her 2 pennies down on the counter, pushing them towards the Register.
“Oh, Honey” I said, “You keep your money, I’ll pay for this” and she stubbornly replied…
“No, mommy, MY Treat.”
And with that
Stamp yourself Silly,
Adhere with Abandon,
And every once in awhile, let someone treat you to your favorite obsession!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
