Whew! May is over!

May is usually a hectic month in our house, and this year was no exception.

*We made our annual trip to the TN Renaissance Festival. (Fun!)
*We had two family birthday parties.
*We saw a very anticipated Pirate movie.
*We helped my brother-in-law win custody of the daughter he's been raising (alone) since 2004. *We went to the Cheatam Dam "swim beach" for the holiday.
*Hubby spent a night in the ER with what was first thought to be appendicitis, and was sent
home many hours and tests later with "just an infection."

So, I haven't had a lot of time to play this month. But, I did manage to play with my new bugs again....

Playing with Bugs!

No, not acctual bugs...

My former SU upline, Nichole Heady
designed this supper-cute ladybug for Papertreyink. I couldn't wait to get it home and start playing with this dotted darling. Here is one of three cards I created last night. The set is called Little Lady. See it at

This Little Lady sure is Big on inspiration.

Playing Tag?

I've been "tagged" today. I gather that means I'm supposed to list seven things about myself.
From there, I don't know... I guess I will have to go figure out the rules, huh?

1. I am an Army wife
2. I have 4 (yes 4) children
3. I am originally from Florida
4. Orange is my least favorite color (with the strange exception of pumpkins in the Fall)
5. I love Orlando Bloom (blushing)
6. I think Grissom Rocks!
7. I will be at the first showing of Pirates 3

Okay, so there are seven things you didn't know about me yet. (Are we bonding yet?) I have gotten my camera back from my Brother-in-Law. But, I doubt if I'll get to anything tonight.

Camera MIA

Yep, My camera has been missing in action for a couple days now. My Brother-in -Law needed to borrow it Monday afternoon, promising to return it the very next morning...
So now that I am suffering from camera withdrawl, I will have to send dear hubby to fetch it back .

An announcement

Here is our new little one's announcement that I made. I copied the design from the boy version shown in the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog. That catalog is a great source of inspiration.

Testing... testing....

Ok, today I'm learning how to put my photos up here. So, to the right (If this worked) is a cute Photo Disc Holder that I designed using several items out of our wonderful Spring mini (You can Click on my Catalog link to see what's new.)
We have two cool new punches the ROUND TAB and the SPIRAL that were both used on this. I also used the new Sandy Shells wheel. Just pop a photo disc inside, and what a cute and easy way to share vacation memories with your friends and family.

Well, SU released it's annual list of stap sets to be discontinued on the May 1st.
I am sad to see some of my very favorites on the list.
(My absolute favorite- Roses In Winter- Sniff!)
But, I also look forward to seeing all the cool new stuff that must be replacing them.
