A second Vinyl Cling

My second vinyl cling for the car.  I made this one for Sarah's car.  She wanted one that said that she was a cheerleader.  Behind the cling you will notice her old poms from the last couple of years in the back window.  I am having a lot of fun designing these vinyl  clings.  Can't wait to see what else I can make for the home with the vinyl.  I might have to try one of those cute sayings for the wall.

Vinyl Clings

About a month ago I found out that I had won a gypsy.  I was excited, because the gypsy would allow me to use my cricut in many different ways.  I am able to use different cartridges all at once and move things around to create a design.  I have seen the vinyl clings and decided to try my hand at making one for Kurt.  I know that the picture doesn't really do it justice, not sure how to take a good picture, if you have a suggestion  let me know. Next on the agenda is a cheerleading one for Sarah's car and maybe a cheerleading mom one for my car.

Grace Scrapbooking Retreat Nov. 2010

We had our 3 crop retreat at Grace Camp this weekend.  This year we had it in Peter retreat center.  What a fun building to use.  Even has a sunroom off to the side, that we used for dining. This was the setup before everyone arrived.

We had a composition book contest. Here were some of the supplies

DeJe working hard on her Christmas Card project

Everytime I go away to a crop that is overnight, Kristen sends me with one of her pigs. This time Football Pig was able to come with me.  Here he is checking out my supplies to make sure that I have everything.

We had a Kitchen stocked with all kinds of goodies

Here is a friend from Church Lindsay

More people working

Time to get your scrap on

Some of the pages that I finished.  Not sure why some of the are turned wrong.

And now for an announcement.  I am totally caught up with one of my albums.  I have all of Sarah's freshman and sophomore cheer pictures done and her album is completed at the moment.  Now the bad news.  The next cheer season starts in two weeks, so I will no long be caught up, but I am planning to enjoy it while I can.
Our next retreat will be March 18-19.  Hope to see your there.
And finally my tablemates and friends.  Deje, Sarah, and Catherine.  Catherine was the first person to organize this retreat and has since followed her husband to Ohio, but she came all the way back just for our retreat (not really, she wanted to see her family, but we can pretend).  The other two are my co-organizers.  We spend lots of time at a a pizza and wing place in town planning the retreat and eating.
