Happy Mother's Day!

Hello! I haven't been on here to update in a while. I just opened a store in Greenwood, Indiana, called Sharon's Crop Studio. We are hosting crops and also have a growing retail area. It was lots of work and still in progress, but we are very proud of it. Check out thewebsite
and stop in to see us if you are in the area.
I am now a SUNSHINE SWEETIE at Sunshine Studio Scraps. This is something I am very proud of. One of my duties as a Sweetie is to co-host a weekly post called the WORD ART/ LYRICS CHALLENGE. Amanda and I take turns finding song lyrics or creating word art for scrappers to use in their layouts. Since Mother's Day is this week, I decided to use an old poem. I discovered it is older than I thought. How about 1915! Here is the layout I did for M-O=T=H=E=R.

Check out the site and give it a try. You can create a layout about your own mother.

That’s right, A NEW KIT  from Polka Dot Plum! You are going to love HIPPITY HOPPITY!

HipHop500Spring is here and it's time for snapping photos of all the flowers and budding trees, not to mention the growing youngsters. Before you know it, the kids will be hunting eggs and dressing up in their finery, and you'll have even more pictures to scrap. By the way, are last year’s shots in your scrapbook yet? Either way, this new kit with its shabby things... doodly things... cutesy things... is perfect for spring scrapping. Flowers, flairs, ribbons, clouds, and a sun, are just the beginning. Doodles of butterflies, bees, a bunny, a chick, and plenty of colorful eggs are only part of what you get. With 20 papers, a full alphabet, and lots more, you'll have just what you need for your spring layouts when you make  HIPPITY HOPPITY yours. This kit will be available at SCRAP ORCHARD, 12:01 a.m. on Friday, March 27.

Last night at 11 p.m. the ladies at Sunshine Studio Scraps started working on a Speed Scrap. What fun those are. Every 10 minutes for an hour the hostess gives a direction. Once she is finished we have one hour and 15 Pixie2 minutes to complete and post our layouts.

Believe it or not, there is lots and lost of chatting going on during this time. It is amazing how much some folks can accomplish while the are typing. I just try to look back every once in a while and see what they are discussing. Fun, Fun, Fun! This is what I managed to accomplish. It is my sister’s first poodle, Pixie. Quite a fashion conscious girl. I used BABAMA MAMMA, the new collab by the SUNSHINE STUDIO DESIGNERS. Click on the picture or the BOLD WORDS  to get a closer view of what is there. This is an awesome kit!
