Blue Skies, Green Trees, White Snow

One of my favorite things about Colorado is the brilliant contrast of color after a heavy snow.  Its even more pronounced in the fall with some of the aspen gold peaking out from snow covered branches.  Its going to be a beautiful weekend and this snow won't last long. Come and enjoy while it's here!

Did you sit on this bench this summer?  It might be a little wet & chilly today.  You better come on in and have some tea and do some creating!

You'll have no problem getting here.  The path to the shop is clean and Rick & Ted maintain it very well!

Just follow the Riverwalk Connection over the river & to the shop.
A little tune just began in my head.....

The parking lot is clear and dries up quickly in the sun.
We've got classes today with the lovely Susan Mostek. 
Creatives are collecting for hot tea and paper crafting.
Hope to see YOU soon!

Here's our spunky little scarecrow, checking out her scrapbook of her scarecrow wedding. She'll be sitting on a bale of hay in front of the shop all through October.

She's got lovely photo album of her family on her cousin's wedding day. Her cousin is kind of a "pumpkin head" head, but a sweet girl.

It's going to be a beautiful, sunny weekend in Estes! Hope to see you @ RMM.

Sticky Back Canvas Journal

Look at this LOVELY journal!  Made with a bought Moleskin book and covered with sticky back canvas.  Carol added stamping and color (Distress Inks, of course!!). 
Here's the back.  Such pretty details.  Sticky Back Canvas was just the answer; Carol just snipped it and fitted it around the elastic closure.  You can't see it at all.
 Here's the journal laying flat.  Carol added twill ribbon and brads.

Carol made this as a gift for her lucky daughter.  Don't you wish YOU were Carol's daughter?  ;-)  Good job, Carol.

Birthday Surprise!

I met some friends today at Susan Mostek's house for a little surprise party for Jen Lowe. She's already had her birthday, which probably made it even more of a surprise!

This is what a surprised woman looks like.

A big hug for Chari Hogslett.

Another one for Judy Hess.

Good friends. Some of my best good friendships have come from paper crafting.

Happy birthday, Jen. You are loved.

This is my birthday card for Jen. I like Sewing, but Sewing doesn't really like me. Which is not fair, cause Sewing doesn't know me that well. But Jen does all things well, so this one is for her.
