It's a Shocker

I've actually been doing some scrapbooking. I know you probably thought I had given it up in favor of knitting, but no. I must thank Susan at The Scrap Room for inspiring me with her new Sketch Class.

These layouts are from the first three sketches. I think if you click on the pictures, you can make them larger.

Our friends with Melissa on her birthday at Disneyland

Aww...aren't they cute?

More birthday fun at Disneyland

I've also been making cards. These four are for a class I'm teaching at Craft Fancy. Who knew teaching classes on using the Cricut machine would be so popular. I have quite a following in the classes each month. (Sorry they are a little blurry, I need to work on my photography skills)

This is my favorite card, I'm sure you will see several versions of it in the future.

Yes Karen, Mom did get a handmade Mother's Day card (it just didn't arrive on Mother's Day) and here it is:

And finally there has been some knitting. One of the ladies in my knitting group has a 3 year old neighbor with leukemia who needed some hats to keep her head warm. So a few of us made some for her. Here is the one I made.

I'm also working on Mom's socks and a top for myself. Hopefully both will be finished before we go on vacation in June.

I also want to thank Kimi for the cute knitting project bag she made for me. I haven't had a chance to take a picture of it, but will post it in the next blog.

Thanks for reading, feel free to post comments if you would like.

The Countdown Starts

Every vacation needs a countdown right? So here is the one for our Mediterranean cruise in June. It is right by the front door so we can see it every time we pass by. By the way, as of today the cruise is 45 days away.
