Hailey at 11 1/2 weeks!

I know I still count the weeks. Hard to believe that she is going to be 3 months old on the 9Th of October. Ian just left on Thursday for a work trip that is taking him WAY north into the NWT. He flew into Hay River, North West Territories then drove 6 hours north to Fort Smith (oops that is Fort Simpson) then they took a float plane another 1.5 hours. He is literally in the middle of no where. This is the picture I took of Hailey and Ian the night before he left. He will hardly recognize her after 4 weeks. I have some scrap pages to show you this week and even one card (don't fall over). It is also a special week as on the 1st of October, my first kits go live on the Internet for sale. I am pretty pumped.

2+1 = FAMILY

This is a page I recently made for the Scrapbook Pantry featuring this Reminisce paper. There are 27 red rhinestones on the scallop. I actually had to open up a second package as there was only 25 of this size in the KaiserCraft rhinestones.

The Pantry Baby

I've been teaching various Copic Classes at the Scrapbook Pantry in Calgary since the beginning of the year. When Hailey was born, Crystal had a sale in honour of Hailey's birth where all things PINK were on sale as well as she had a little baby shower for her one night at the story.

I made this page for the story as a Thank-you for all that they did for us! The picture doesn't do this page any justice as the paper is all glittered and shimmered. There are flower rhinestones throughout. The owl for example, is totally glittered. So, anyone who has seen this in real life, please tell me it looks better than this picture!

Long time no post!

Wow! Where does the time go? Hailey will be 2 months tomorrow. We have been very busy however, I've managed to do the instruction to 2 of my kits which I found out will be released on Oct 1! It will be exciting to see the kits go live on the internet.

Hailey and I are in Regina right now and have been since the 29th of August. Ian was with us until Sunday night when he flew home for work this week. Hailey and I are staying until Friday. I'll be driving home that day as Saturday night is Member's Night at the Scrapbook Pantry and my copic teaching starts on Monday night.

I did become a Copic Certified Designer on Saturday, August 22nd! Sherrie Siemens was in Calgary to do the certification then she taught 3 classes at Scrapbook Pantry for our customers. I had the pleasure of having lunch with Sherrie and helping her out in her classes. She is an amazing teacher and shed some light on how I want to teach my classes. If you interested in my classes, check out the Class Calendar at the Scrapbook Pantry website.

Enough chatter! I do have something to show you - my latest MNC kit design. The is one that will be released on Oct 1. Papers are by Upsy Daisy Designs.

On another note, I will not be a Stampin' Up Demo after September 30th as I am not willing to sign the new Independent Demo Agreement. I don't want to be limited to what I post on my blog as I love a ton of products and a lot of them more than SU! Also, I want to be able to tell you about my Copic teaching at The Pantry as well as my design work for (BTW, there is a great article about MNC in the latest issue of Canadian Scrapbooker in the Made in Canada section!)
