Hope you have a great Easter Weekend too. I'll leave you with a couple of layouts I completed recently.
With my favorite ever Studio Calico kit, Metropolitan I made this to gather last year's Christmas cards in one place.

I got back from the best CKC scrapbook convention ever Saturday night. The rest of the weekend was super busy too....
Sunday we took the boys to the Garden Railroad Train Tour and came home to have my computer crash on me, Mike had to take it to Best Buy to get it fixed for me.
I had Monday off of work, so after Nicholas got out school we went to see the Easter Bunny (Jackson would not go near him)
Here's a quick recap of the convention. I will have a full review of my classes after I finish up my projects in the next couple of weeks.
This year's convention was....
Having 2 fun filled days with 2 fabulous friends (and another in spirit, who was home with her sick baby)....
Taking 8 awesome classes with 5 fabulous teachers, making 16 fun layouts, a mini book and 2 cards that I love....
Some new Basic Grey. A cute Easter altered project
And some Glitz Design goodies those brown woodgrain mini letters that I had been coveting, circle stamps I was drooling over, and my favorite Glitz line ever....

I have a 4 day weekend…
And I am off to the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Mesa for the next 2 days!
We are staying overnight at the convention hotel . So what could be better….
A girls weekend filled with…
…all things scrapbooking
…no kids (I’ll though I will miss them terribly)
…lots of classes
…and LOTS OF SHOPPING.
I call that…nirvana.
Before I head off, I am sharing today’s ScrapTiffany challenge on stamping. I have been dabbling a bit with embossing powders again, American Crafts Zing to be exact. I also have been on a roll scrapping our vacation from last October.
Here is my take on this week’s challenge…
I have been doing a few more two pagers lately and using lots of my favorite photos from our vacation. It’s fun to switch it up a bit.
Nicholas was impressed with the heat gun for embossing. He kept telling me to do it again. I love that one of my boys is already hanging out with me in my craft room. His future wife will sure appreciate me (may she be a scrapbooker or crafter). LOL!
Have a great weekend!
I’ll be back on Sunday to post the winner from the ScrapTiffany Blog Hop!

You should be arriving here from the ScrapTiffany blog. If you have landed here first, head on back to the ScrapTiffany blog to start hopping!
I ended up with tons of these and it seemed so wasteful to just toss them, so for the past 2 years they have been recycled in several different ways for fun little gifts.
This seemed like the perfect item to dress up for Easter with a bit of papers I didn’t plan to use and a few tools from my stash.
Punch a thin and thick border
Punch 3” scallop circle to cover lid
Adhere punched borders to pail
Break out the embossing powder, versamark and stamps
Cut out a cute chick and layer eggs around the pail with pop dots
Tie with ribbons, fill with jelly beans and give them to your favorite Easter Bunny.
I am going to the CKC Mesa Scrapbook Convention this weekend. I will be bringing some goodies back to give away to a commenter from this post.
So follow me and leave a comment for a chance to win. (I will pay for US postage, and would be happy to give away to an international winner if you help out with the postage and cover the difference).
Winner will be posted when I get back on Sunday.
Thanks for hopping by!
Next stop on the Blog Hop is Katie.

Even when it means Saturday morning I must get up early and get our taxes done. I am sure we will get a refund, and even knowing that I always put it off as long as possible. I guess I just don’t like to spend a weekend that way.
The ladies over at ScrapTiffany have lots of fun takes on it. Here was mine:
I loved these pictures from our vacation last year at Disneyland, and was happy to finally get them on a page.
And here is another layout I did recently, my little man is a bit messy most the time. Maybe one day he won’t be and then we can just remember when he was “into everything”
I can dream anyway.
Well, I am off to get some routine blood work before finishing out the work week.
Have a great weekend!
