I was so fortunate last weekend to attend Leadershare in Omaha. Leadershare is a Close To My Heart corporate sponsored event. We had four of the leaders from corporate come in for a one day workshop. During that day we made this layout:

This was the first time I had used the Everygreen Cork Shapes on p. 129 of the Idea Book. For only $3.95 you get over 20 shapes. They look great, especially when you ink up the edges a bit. They are also adhesive so they go down great! This layout uses the Pemberley paper and The Best Things stamp set on page 98. It has one of the truest statements....The best things in life aren't things. Well, scrapbooks are right up there though!

We also made 4 cards using the new Colonial White Die Cut cards on page 123 of the Idea Book. I'm not going to show those yet though...may be a workshop in the future.

Speaking of workshops. We had a bonus class day on Friday before Leadershare. During that day we made 12 pages using Footloose and a boxed card set with 10 cards. Those will probably be workshops as well.

If there are certain things you would like to see in a workshop or certain days that work best please let me know. These clases probably won't be until June after graduation.

Milk Carton with Lucy

I love these new milk cartons. I plan on making them for May Baskets for some friends. You could fit all sorts of candy in there! Here is one I made using Lucy which is a very pretty paper pack! It alsu uses the stamp set Just for You which is one of my very favorites and is only $9.95!

Check them out on my new website at
