Halloween Gifts

So for my annibirthary (My birthday and Anniversary are only 5 days apart) my lovely husband got me an embroidery machine.  I am already putting it to really good use. Another gift that I received was lighting and backdrops for my craft studio.  I'm so excited to learn more about them in the coming weeks.  

I will have samples to display as soon as I can show them so for today here was my embroidery gift for my daughter's sister.

Maryland Stamper Challenge Week One

Good Morning!  I am a part of a wonderful group of ladies that are called the Maryland Stampers.  I love all the ideas they share and how much I am inspired to go further with my art work.  Since the main catalog and the holiday catalog is a little light on fall and I need inspiration, I've decided to put a challenge out to anyone who would like to try.  I will have one each week in September.  

Week One Challenge

Create a fall card or 3d project (you must use current Stampin Up Product)

Post a pic of it on the Maryland Stampers Group with the #MDSTAMPERSSCW1 and tag me or on the Stampin Up Party Planners site #SUPPSCW1 and tag me. (That way I am sure to see it) The Pic must be posted and tagged by September 9th and I will annouce the winner on the 10th.

Then mail your project to a friend and let me know what your source of inspiration was along with what friend you are mailing it to.  Be creative.

Post your project on your blog and let us know your blog address if you have one.  You can still participate if you don't.

The winner will be mailed a prize by September 30th and announced on Maryland Stampers and Stampin Up Party Planners.There will be a panel of judges that will select the winners.

Maryland Stampers Bi-annual regional gathering.

Whew!  This weekend was so much fun.  We had a great time at regionals and missed you if you didn't get to come.  There were presentations on Inspiration, Christin Rocha gave us a lot of new ideas with her Halloween, Fall, and Christmas presentation, and Sandra Flowers showed us an amazing WOW project.  It was so much fun.  The next things on my to do list are making the Ornament class up and then recreating the scrapbook pages that Christin did.  I love them so much.  Stay tuned....  If you feel like you missed out on Regionals then save the date for February 4th because we will be doing it all over again.

Faith's Last First Day
