I'm Leaving on a jet plane....

don't know when I'll be back again...♪♪♫♪♫♪

Actually, I think I will be back Monday afternoon!

I was invited to go with friends on their private plane to Las Vegas for a long weekend, and after much thought I couldn't think of a real reason NOT to go! I've never been there...or much of anywhere, for that matter. So I'm getting on that airplane early tomorrow morning headed for Nevada. New adventures...the new me! Haha! I'll let you know how it went when I get back!

In the meantime, all your orders have been packaged and shipped. All orders from now through Monday will ship when I return on Tuesday. In the meantime, check out the sale at Stamper's Dream . For 30% OFF your total purchase, enter SDClosing30 as the coupon code on the checkout page.

Wish me luck...I'm not the gamblin' kind. :)

Until I return...

It is with a heavy heart that I announce I've decided to close Stamper's Dream ! After many tears and much prayer, I just know it's the right thing for me to do. My grandchildren are growing up so quickly! I just feel the need to reclaim my life and spend more time with family and friends. As much as I love my store, my fabulous design team, and my faithful customers, I know it's time for other things to take priority in my life. No one can do it all. Well, not forever, anyway.

Stamper's Dream is having a SALE! loss is your gain! Everything in the store is 20% off with the coupon code Farewell2U. Just enter it on the checkout page in the coupon section and it will take 20% off the lowest marked price of the items in your shopping cart! There is a $20 minimum to activate the coupon. Sorry, but there will be no free shipping during the liquidation. All sales are final. Also, please be aware that there may be a delay in shipping due the volume.

And did you know we're having our very last Stamper's Dream blog hop??? I invited some of my most special friends to hop with us as well! Here's the lineup:

Geaux Tigers!

So sorry that I don't have anything creative for you today. I left town Friday afternoon headed for Tiger Stadium aka Death Valley! On Saturday the Tigers beat the Florida Gators 41-11, and I was among 93,000 other fans sitting in the stadium watching it happen. It was my first LSU game, and it was awesome, I tell ya!

We had a fabulous time at the game. But the tailgaiting, both before and after the game, made for the perfect day! Great friends, great food, great entertainment! Thanks to our hosts, Scott and Joanna! Here is Joanna with her son Clinton.
I hope your weekend was a wonderful as mine! I will be back as soon as I can with something crafty. Until then...

Winter Wishes Altered Notebook

Hi everyone! This is a notebook that I make each and every year. These make such wonderful gifts for a teacher or co-worker. You can find the tutorial HERE from several years ago. A different version of the notebook can be found HERE and another HERE .

If you follow the instructions in the tutorial you shouldn't have any trouble, so I'm going to skip the directions for making it. The stamp set for the ornament is JustRite Stampers Deck The Halls cling mounted set. I stamped it with Fired Brick Distress Ink , then cut it out. The teal layer, and red ornament layer behind the stamped image were cut using Spellbinders 2011 Ornament Nestabilities . The tag was stamped with JustRite's Christmas Mini Sentiments .

This picture is so you can see the focal image in a little greater detail. All designer paper used on the notebook is from the Prima Marketing North Country 6 x 6 paper pad . The ribbon is May Arts , and the flower in the center is from the North Country Avon Rose flower collection.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. I hope you have a wonderful week! Until the next time...
