Went to the zoo last August

I kidnapped Kari and her kids and we went to the Calgary Zoo in Aug '07. We had a great time with our friend Linda tagging along too. Let me tell you, to visit the zoo through a children's eyes is so enjoyable. Oh, and a great zoom camera sure helps too! LOL

I used the Bo Bunny Zoo line. I dropped this page off at the store tonight if you want to see it close up. And yes, I totally took pictures to match the poem :)

January Kit

Hi Ladies!

Just wanted to remind you that the January kit is a few days later this year due to the busy holiday season. We didnt want anyone to have to worry about missing out. It will be launched on Jan 4th I believe. (I am sure Kari will correct that if I am incorrect)

Exculsive papers and Bellies again! Lots of fun stuff and oh so creative.

I will be posting my layouts and cards in the next few days. I had a lot of fun with it.

Dont forget that Embellished is closed on Tuesday for New Years and is closing early tomorrow. If you are planning on scrapbooking like me......dont forget to get to the store to stock up on essentials - adhesive and cardstock being the top of my list!

Have an awesome New Year whatever you end up doing.

Merry Christmas to all!

I just want to take a moment and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and all the best through 2008.

Thank you to all the lovely ladies I have met this past year during classes. Everyone has made my classes so enjoyable. I look forward to seeing you guys more next year!

Safe travels to those going elsewhere. Drive safe, fly safe, be safe.

Enjoy the moments of the season. Take lots of photos, but hand your camera over and let someone else capture you too.

Happy holidays everyone! See you soon.

Ready for Christmas yet?

Hey Embellished fans! It is I, Ronni - I have a few moments at work, and thought I'd see how your winter projects were coming along. All the snow we've had over the past few days, has (finally) started to make me feel a little Christmas-sy.

Are you making anything special for someone special? I made up a few Christmas ornaments, but I haven't had a chance yet to take photos of them to show you. I'm hoping to put up my tree this weekend, so I'll take a pic or two then.

Are you making cards for your family and friends? The last time I was at the store, I saw some wonderful ones made up by the other girls there. And there are always ideas on the internet or in a magazine you could follow. I picked up some of the "Figgy Pudding" (from Basic Grey) and I love it so much, I almost hated to cut it up! Beautiful paper!!

I'm afraid that I don't have any photos to show you of what I did with the latest kit... I'm making huge puppy dog eyes at Shelley, or Kari, or Mel, or Tammy... and hoping that they'll take some pics for me and show you guys just how great that kit is! I love the double sided papers, and how not all of the colours aren't the traditional green and red. Aren't you loving the Embellies??

Anyways, I suppose I should go back to work! Happy holidaze!!! :)

Good morning everyone!

I just wanted to share this link to the Maya Road Creative Corner. It lists templates for all their chipboard books (so you dont have to trace from the book) and printable templates for the binder books - journal sheets, day timers, etc. Just click on the group of templates you are looking for and then the correct template.

Hopefully this will help you with last minute gift ideas using the MR products available at Embellished Memories.
