Blog Candy Alert!!

There are two posts today so don't forget to scroll down and look at the DVD holder...Rockin'!

I am humbled beyond belief that you all have taken the time to visit my little corner of the stamping world.  I promised blog candy at 5.000 hits and we've long passed that so I thought the "candy" needed to be something nice.

I have a brand new set of SU's Stampin Pastels (and maybe a couple of surprises thrown in with them!). 

All you have to do is leave a comment here telling me why you love stamping.

I'll choose a winner by Random Number Picker on Friday, March 13th.

Thanks again for stopping by my little sandbox!

Blessings and Happy Stamping!

I'm Baa-aack...with Blog Candy and a Project

Wow...I can't believe it's been so long since I've even looked  at my blog!  I promised you pictures of the party (for those of you taking a new look...we had a dinner and a murder party set at a 1957 Class Reunion) and as soon as my DH gets them converted from RAW format to jpeg, I'll get some of the photos posted.   It was SO MUCH FUN!  We were actually sorry when it was over...the planning, the shopping, the decorating and best of all, time spent with my BGF, Patty was the BEST! 

Our friends all came in the best costumes and really took their parts quite seriously...they found all the weapons but only one murder was committed...and by the most angelic face there!  We had great detectives and one couple even came up with song and dance routine in keeping with their characters. 

I would recommend this type of party for any kind of group.  We did alot of research and this company has games that are suitable for even church groups (we are a Bible study group).  You can find more info here.

I made this cd holder to hold the DVD my DH made of the photos.  He even put them to music.  Can't wait to give them to our friends. 

There were a total of 10 couples so I made one for everyone.  The cd template came from Lauren Meader's Timeless Templates from Papertrey Ink but I did them all by hand.  Super simple!  .

The DP is from the Sabrina pack that I used on my friend's anniversay gift set a few posts back.  Since our colors were pink and black...it was perfect!!

 The "Class of 1957" was stamped with JustRiteStampers Brayton Font in Versafine Black then heat embossed with clear EP from Ranger.  The labels were cut and embossed using the label dies from Spellbinders.  The guitar and notes were stamped, heat embossed and cut out.  They're from a clear set by Inkadinkadoo.  The gems are Martha Stewart self stick that I picked up from Walmart....60 of those beauties for about $3.  I cut a round velcro dot in half and used it to keep the holder closed.

Thanks for stopping by...and be sure and check the next post for the blog candy!

Blessings and Happy Stamping!
