Here is another scrapbook page that I made for my son and his girlfriend. This one was taken at a nearby lake that we like to go to. See the lovely Crappies in the cooler? I thought that really added to the page, along with sponging Tempting Turquoise Stampin' Up! ink around the year and title. The Stampin' Up! wheel that I used for the background is called Whimsy, along with some matching designer paper the page came together rather quickly.
I hope that you are enjoying my scrapbook, I like making them I figure it keeps me out of mischief!!
My thought for today:

It was a great time spent with each other and friends.
My thought for the day: Friendship shares the spirit of the sky and the splendor of a new day.

I used the Stampin' Up Decorative Ornaments stamp set to make the ornaments, embossed them in gold and then punched them out with my new ornament punch. I don't know why but I really like paper punches! I then completed the look by using a black marker and drew lines to represent the ornament strings.
I used every part of the picture card that they sent, including their names and the "Merry Christmas".
Next page will be coming up with a fishing scene for the Spring of 2009.
Till next time, take care and have a great day!

What I like to use for my scrapbooks is 3-ring binders that I buy at Walmart. They have the plastic sleeve that you can insert whatever you want for the cover, side and back cover. The reason I like this is that I can personalize it the way that I want it. Just makes it alittle more special.
The picture that I used is the two of them from last winter when they went ice fishing up by Phillips, WI. Remember the winter of 2008, remember how cold it was?! I sure hope that we don't have that cold of a winter this year but I think that I am going to be mistaken!!
Thanks for stopping in, and have a great day!

But after my long day of baking cookies, 4 different kinds to be exact and after conning my husband to help me decorate the cut out cookies I looked at the calendar and gasped, its getting pretty close to Christmas and I still have a few things to do. But I have the cookies made, just have to make the dear hubby his poppy seed bread.
One of the kinds of cookies that I made today were called Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies, they aren't too much work and the best part is that you frost them BEFORE you bake them, so thats pretty cool. Anyway here is the recipe:
Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. cocoa
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. baking powder
1/4 t. baking soda
1/2 c. butter or margarine
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1 c. sugar
6 oz. chocolate chips
1/2 c. sweetened condensed milk
Cream butter & sugar, add eggs, and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients. Shape into 1 inch balls. Press down center. For the frosting: In a microwavable bowl with cover, melt chocolate chips with sw. condensed milk, add 4 t. cherry juice. Stir chips, milk and juice until its well mixed. Press a cherry into the top of each cookie and frost tops of cookies before baking. Bake at 350 degrees about 10 minutes.
These are very moist cookies and is one that is always requested at house. Enjoy!!

H A P P Y A U T U M N!!!
The 7 Ups!
1. Wake Up !!
Decide to have a good day.'This is the day the Lord hath made;Let us rejoice and be glad in it.' Psalms 118:24
2. Dress Up !!
The best way to dress up is to put on a smile.A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks. 'The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.Man looks at outward appearance,But the Lord looks at the heart.'I Samuel 16:7
3. Shut Up!! Say nice things and learn to listen.God gave us two ears and one mouth,So He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking.'He who guards his lips guards his soul.' Proverbs 13:3
4. Stand Up!!
. . . For what you believe in.Stand for something or you will fall for anything. 'Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time,We will reap a harvest if we do not give up.Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good...'Galatians 6:9-10
5. Look Up !!
. . To the Lord.'I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me'. Philippians 4:13
6. Reach Up !!. . For something higher.'Trust in the Lord with all your heart,And lean not unto your own understanding.In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.' Proverbs 3:5-6
7. Lift Up !!. . Your Prayers. 'Do not worry about anything; insteadPRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING.'Philippians 4:6
A POSITIVE THOUGHT
Wishing you a Blessed day!!!

considered a blue beagle. I never thought I would ever stray away from the traditional beagle until Justin brought Tucker home one night about six years ago. You see Tucker was owned by another so-called person but he was kept in a kennel all of the time, with little to no shelter and was only fed when this person thought of it. So Justin, being the true dog lover and wonderful person that he is, told this guy, "If you are not going to take care of this dog then I am taking him home with me!!" And the guy just said, "Go ahead."
What is really something is that Justin never even asked, he just scooped up the little guy and brought him home. First we fed him and unforunately for us, it didn't agree with him; probably because he hadn't eaten in awhile. So we fed him little meals, Justin gave him a bath and the next day we took him to the vet for a check up.
And the rest is history!! Tucker has been part of the family ever since, he is the most adorable, carefree and fun beagle that I have ever had. A couple of years after Justin brought Tucker home, he decided that it was time that he wanted to move into his own place. Justin's dad and I said, "Thats fine, but Tucker stays here!"
We always say that Tucker's personality is so totally different from Maggie. Maggie is very serious and Tucker has the "I am just here for the party" attitude.
He is truly our little friend and our entertainment!

Horse Paint when my dad bought him for me. He was a retired horse from a guest ranch, for that reason just about anyone could ride him. He would do anything for you. I like to think that he had a soft spot for me and Justin, as we were usually the only ones that could catch him. He could be a stinker, but usually he was just Patch, a real nice horse.
The other day, Justin told me that someday he is going to own another Quarter Horse Paint just like Patch.
Stayed tuned for more scrapbook pages, I have a bunch of ideas for pages; and will post them as I get them finished. Take care, stamp and create!

Anyway, here are two cards that I received from my Secret Stamper. In August I joined a Secret Stamper group, hosted by my friend, Kelly. Our names were put into a hat and Kelly signed us up to a different person and we became their Secret Stamper. Every month we receive two cards from our Secret Stamper and I send two cards to my Secret Stamper person. Its really alot of fun getting cards in the mail and trying to create two new cards every month. Which for me because of everything I am doing, was quite the challenge.
So here are the two cards that I received in August.
This card features the new stamp set from Stampin' Up! 2009 catolog. Its called Autumn Days.
The card stock is Really Rust, Close to Cocoa and the new color for this Soft Suede.
The Very Vanilla piece was cut out using the Sissix Top Note Die.
Its really a very pretty card in peson.
The second card is also featuring a stamp set from Stampin' Up! for the love of me I couldn't figure out the name of the stamp set from the catolog. But its still a great card, love the colors.
I made some cards tonight for a couple of weddings that we have coming up and I will post them in tomorrows post. So until then, take care and thanks for stopping by.
