Happy Sunday!

Good morning, Everyone. How is your day so far...? I know, it's early still!

Today is going to be a fun day here, our long-awaited photo session with our grandkids is happening at 2:00 pm today. I know it sounds mundane, but we discovered a wonderful photographer about 2 years ago and she is truly magical with her work. Ever since we found her, we have periodically gone to her for adorable "kid pictures" on Kiera and Sawyer. She usually has specials where you can purchase a CD with ALL the poses included so the cost stays relatively low. Compared to what you would get at Target or Sears, the cost is about the same but the quality of the posing and the many detailed and one of a kind props is really head and shoulders above what is currently out there!

This sessions was titled "Summer Vacation" and we were encouraged to bring the kids dressed in casual beach wear like linen dresses, khaki shorts, and maybe a thick cable knit beige sweater (for Sawyer.) I have seen her set dressings in the past and I envision some rustic, vintage looking backdrops with maybe some nautical or July 4th themes going on. We got the kids some adorable outfits and they will both be dressed in neutral colors so they do not clash with the back grounds. I am SO excited (does it show?) lol.

This is one weekend EVERYONE is available so that means we are all going, Richard and I, the two grandkids, AND their parents (my son and daughter in law.) It is about an hour from our house, she is located in a beautiful neighborhood in San Clemente, so we will just get there a little bit early and maybe grab the kids a bit to eat. Nothing messy!!

In the crafty world things have been humming along. I just finished editing my video for my online card class "Sheltering Tree." If you purchased the class from me or if you were on my team of demonstrators and purchased a class packet, the finished and edited video will be up by tonight. For whatever reason my system is working super slow today and it is taking forever to upload. I love my iMovie software but really....it should be quicker to upload. Just sayin.

Yesterday was the last day to get that great Paper Pumpkin promotion of 25% off (for new subscribers only) but the other Host promotion is still going on. Please be sure to contact me if you are interested, if you get your workshop in within the next 2 weeks you can get an additional $35 in FREE product, your choice of product from the catalog. This is a great deal and it is in ADDITION to the free stuff you will already get from having a workshop. An example I usually give people is for a $400 workshop (super easy to achieve) where you would get 14% in free product (approximately $56) and then add the additional $35 and  you would get a whopping $91 in free stuff! Isn't that crazy? The caveat is that you must complete and have the workshop turned in (and closed out by me) within the calendar month of June and the minimum workshop must be $350. Such a great deal and I've had a few customers already take advantage of this wonderful chance to get free product. From time to time Stampin' Up does this for its customers and I always make sure the customers KNOW about it so they can take advantage. If you are interested, leave me a comment or even text or call me at 951-973-3270.

Let's close with a couple of cards I made recently using the new designer series paper (DSP) in the newly released catalog, "Just Add Color."

These are so cute and I love this kind of designer series paper because you can color in the pattern any way you want. Then I just used my snips to fussy cut the little pieces out, they aren't too little either so they cut out quickly and without a lot of fuss. Which is funny, to me, anyway! My granddaughter had just seen Beauty and the Beast and she said the cards reminded her of that movie. How cute, right?? If you would like to join my team or even purchase the "Just Add Color" designer paper, just go check out my shopping page, it is open 24/7 and you can order securely anytime from there. The current host code is K6MP2AFD and if you use that code on my shopping page I will send you a gift in your thank you packet!! Woo Hoo!! Just click here to get shopping!

On that note, have a great rest of the weekend and I'll talk to you soon!
