Kookies with the K-9 Contest

I rarely repeat Ongoing Fundraising contests at school, but the Kookies with the K-9 contest was such a HUGE success last year.  I couldn't resist doing it again!  The only hitch in the contest was I didn't save my bulletin board.  Here is my new one.  I like it better than last year's!

Olympics 2012

The London Olympics were AWESOME!  The past two weeks our family has been glued to the TV watching the Olympics.  104 Medals later, it's over.  The athletes stories and commitment always amaze me.  How do they do it?

Dudley the Dragon wanted to help us remember how we spent part of our 2012 summer.

Here's the official medal count...  GO USA!

Scrapbook USA Expo Card Drive

It's almost time for the Scrapbook USA Expo!  Circle, circle, circle the dates for September 28 & 29. As you know, I LOVE working the VIP Lounge at the show every spring and fall.  I love mingling with all the amazing ladies (and a few men) and soaking in their creativity.  I can't wait to see all the "regulars" and all the new VIPs who will party with me in 49 days.  This year is extra special because my all my favorite companies are teaming up together for a great cause... Doodle Dragon Studios, Scrapbook USA and Operation Write Home!  Plus an added bonus of Huntsman Cancer Institute.  

Have you finished making your cards for the Care with Cards Challenge?  You still have a few more days to earn free images (including this boxing monkey) from Doodle Dragon Studios!  Here are the details of the card drive from Dustin:

*You do NOT need to use DoodleDragon Studios design, it'd be nice but not required...
*All cards will be donated to Operation Write Home and/or the Huntsman Cancer Institute
*Remember there are rules for the Operation Write Home cards. Check out their website at for details
*The biggest card need for the Huntsman Cancer Institute is "Thank You" and "Birthday"
*Card Kits are SO needed for Huntsman Cancer Institute
*Cards/Kits can be sent to:
  Scrapbook USA Expo, PO Box 1237, Draper Utah 84020
*Remember to include your e-mail address so you can receive your free designs

*Cards must be postmarked by August 18th

Sometimes Dustin Pike/Doodle Dragon Studios images talk to me.  It's true.  I don't know how to explain it, but it really does happen.  You've heard the phrase, "I'm a lover, not a fighter."  In honor of the Huntsman Cancer Institute card drive, this boxing monkey immediately said, "I'm a lover AND a fighter!" 

The cards are starting to arrive in Scrapbook USA's mailbox!  Take a peek at the fun cards coming in on the Scrapbook USA blog.

See you soon!

FLASH.. Ah Ah ♫♫♪♪♫

FLASH.. Ah Ah ♫♫♪♪♫!  Well it took a week to show off, but I did it!  I made a card from each hero from Dustin Pike/Doodle Dragon Studios new Super Hero set.  I don't know what it is, but I'm strangely addicted to this set.

Now to start working on the Cards for Care card drive Dustin is sponsoring at the Scrapbook Expo in Utah this year.   I'm thinking of making some card kits from the Super Heroes set.  That is... if I break out my Silhouette Cameo machine and figure out how to work it.  I've had it since November!  Rumor is it can cut out digi images perfect!  Don't ask me why I haven't jumped all over this?!  I must really love my Tim Holtz scissors.

Sorry... Hulk

You thought I was kidding when I said I couldn't get enough of Dustin Pike/Doodle Dragon Studios new Super Hero set!  Nope.  I wasn't.  Only 2 more heroes and I will have crafted each one in the set! 

Here's the Hulk.  Wasn't he always sorry for something?  Poor guy.

Captain America

Are you keeping an eye out for the return of Dustin Pike/Doodle Dragon Studios Super Heroes set?  I just can't seem to get enough of these super heroes!

Captain America is my oldest daughter's favorite hero.  She offered to pose in her Captain America shirt with this card and do the Captain America pose.  Wondering if she was for real...

Watch for another hero tomorrow!

I'm Batman

Can I tell you how much I LOVE Dustin Pike/Doodle Dragon Studios new Super Heroes digi set!  I love, love, love it!  Now can someone please come lock me out of my craft room?  I can't stop playing with these guys!  I've made two additonal cards from the Heroes set (2 more heroes to go), but I can't show you them today.  I'll post one a day.  Superheroes never ALL show up in one place at one time!

Here's Batman.  Have you seen the new movie yet?  We saw it on vacation at an IMAX theater.  Highly recommend it over a normal movie theater.  It's huge and everything rumbles in your chest.  This weekend we're having a Batman movie marathon to see the complete story.  Yeah, we did it backwards.

Sentiment: I need you like Batman needs the night.

Spiderman, Spiderman...

Spiderman, Spiderman... did you catch him last week on Dustin's Doodle Dragon Studios Wild Wednesday "Who's Paying Attention" sale?  Just like a superhero to make a brief appearance then disappear!  Don't worry, you'll see the superhero set again some time in August.  So be watching for it!
