Women’s LifeStyle Show

Posted by memoriesfromtheattic on October 29, 2007

My friend Donna and I went to the Ladies Lifestyle Show yesterday!  We had such a great time, checking out all the vendors.  It was really neat seeing all the businesses and talking the owners.

Any who!  Halloween is quickly approaching and we still have a small amount of kits left of both the Oct. kit and the coaster kit.  But you should hurry they are going, going, and will soon be gone!  Plus the totes are still availble if you sign up for the KitClub

.The fruit upon which this color is based.

TIP***  Always have diaper wipes handy in your scrap area, they are nice to wipe ink and chalk off your hands.

**Challenge**   Scrap a page using the color Pumpkin.  Have fun and show us your pic!

Have fun!!

I left SRD Early

Posted by memoriesfromtheattic on October 15, 2007

I was at Spoon River Drive yesterday, it was so cold!!

I took my tent down and came home after the show was over and decided to not go on Sunday. I missed not being able to go to church, my kids, and I HAVE alot I want to do at the store , kits to get ready etc.

So my heart said pack it up and go home.

SO hopefully I will be able to post my Coaster “Boo” Book!  I really want to share this with you all and if you would like to get the kit to do, instead of tracking down the pieces I will have those available to you all.

I am going to get to work and get that posted.

Have a great day!


Find some pics to put in your new “Boo” Book, these books will be 4×4 size, so a wallet size would probably work best!

Have fun!

The class tonight was great!  I still have a few empty seats if you are interested!  You will be making an awesome album that can be passed down for years.  The story of you!

I wanted to share an awesome site with you, if you are a card maker this is for you and if you are not it is still for you!

Saturday was World Card Making Day and some companies sponsored it by giving out some inspiration, have a look.


Make a journaling block using a card front.

Have fun!

Columbus Day

Posted by memoriesfromtheattic on October 9, 2007

If I had to think of a color for Columbus Day it would be orange.  What color do you think of?

Today we went down to the RiverFront to the see a ship that was like a replica of the ships that Columbus would of sailed in.  It was called the Nina, it tours as an exhibit.   Then we played in the park and then went to have hotdogs.  It was nice to spend time with the kids since I was gone all weekend!

Tomorrow I start  one of the classes I am doing at the park.  A Year of You, I am planning to change the name of it to “This is Me” that would be a more fitting name!  I will let you know how it goes:)


When you think of you, what color do you think of?  Scrap a page using that color and shades of it.

Have fun!

Day 2 of Spoon River Drive

Posted by memoriesfromtheattic on October 8, 2007

Well it was hot again, but still it was better than rain.   It was slow from what the other vendors said, maybe they are going to wait until next week when it is going to be cooler.  We will see.

I talked to alot of people and found some needs of scrappers, so I will be planning some classes for those needs.  I can’t wait!!

I am going to start a daily challenge anyone who wants to participate can and if you would like to do the challenges and use a new album you can choose any album from the store for 40% off.  Use code challenge album

Challenges help get you motivated to get some of those pics in scrapbooks.  Use the challenge to do a theme book, baby first year, a year of your family etc


Scrap a page using the colors pink and brown or blue and brown,  if you want post it back here for us all to see.

Have fun

Posted by memoriesfromtheattic on October 7, 2007

Well, I am back from SRD, it was fun and the people were so friendly!  It was a little on the HOT side– ok alot on the hot side.

It was a great day and I met alot of scrappers.  And some future scrappers.  I talked to  some of the people about the classes I will be doing at the East Peoria Park AD. building.  You can see the info at  A great class will be starting this Tuesday, it is called a Year of You, but I am going to change the name of it to This is Me, This is Who I Am!

I am really excited about this class, it runs for 4 weeks and we complete an entire album of YOUR life.  Isn’t that fantastic?  And what an awesome thing to share with your family.

Well have a great evening.
