Hello, it's time for my Hambo Hoedown project this week.  I am really pushing it this week and I am not happy with the results.  This week we had to dust off all those fancy scissors we have in our stash.  You know the ones you just had to have..... First I had to find mine.  I think I actually gave them to my daughter, so we spent days hunting for them.  When we found them, we really had to "dust" them off - literally.  And then I had to figure out how to use them again.  So now you know why I am not happy with the results.  This was a real challenge for me.

Anyway, this week I used the image "Camera Guy".

My inside photo skills are horrible as well.  I really need to finish my DYI light box.  That would help a lot.

Anyway, I am off.  I have to prepare for a meeting in the morning.

Take care.

Good News to share

Hi!  I'm back with the good news I promised to share.  I was asked to be guest designer for Bugaboo Stamps for both September and October.  I am super excited about this.  Bugaboo has been one of my favorite stamp companies for a very long time, so to play along with the wonderful DT for a couple of months is just AWESOME!

Over the weekend the announcement was made.  Sorry I am just getting to share the word, but there will be a ton of Bugaboo projects this month so just look out.  Here is my project for the Friday Freebie.  If you haven't picked up Beach Frog - beach toys, there's still time, just head over here.

 I hope you will come back often this month and see all my projects.

Take care.
