Candy bars, Project Life, and …oh, yeah…a card!


Where oh where have I been?

Well–a lot has happened since I last blogged (which is WHY I last blogged!).  Let’s see:

First, my dear Destination Imagination team won first place in their state tournament (YEAH!) which means they are now heading to the Destination Imagination Global Tournament in Knoxville, TN (OH!).   You can read more about that here.

Then–Sale A Bration ended.   I loved the freebie products this year and hope you got the ones you wanted.

Ok–and then there were taxes….’nuff said!

And  mixed in there, there were some dance competitions, car issues, track meets and selling candy bars…..lots of candy bars.

And then yesterday, Stampin’ Up! makes this big announcement:su-becky higginsBecky Higgins and Stampin’ Up! have partnered to bring some Project Life EXCLUSIVES to Stampin’ Up!

I know, right?!  You either know what I am talking about and are doing a happy dance or, frankly, don’t care.   But let me tell you WHY you should care:  We all want to remember the “stuff” that makes up our lives—no matter what stage of life you are in.   Here is a little blurb on  Project Life by Becky Higgins:

  • Project Life is a solution-based approach to scrapbooking that was created to simplify the process in order to allow you more time to enjoy life! It requires no glue, no scissors, no tools, and no skills of any kind. The design of our products takes the guess work out of layout design so that you can focus on recording your everyday moments through your photos and journaling. The simple design is stylish and makes it possible for you to complete more pages in less time.
  • Becky Higgins, creator of Project Life, is a busy wife and mother who is passionate about capturing the little bits of life, and she’s making it easy for others to do the same. “It’s called Project LIFE because it’s about YOUR LIFE. Whatever your life is. Whatever your stage of life. Whatever your family circumstances. Whatever your lifestyle. Project Life is designed to help anyone + everyone get their pictures into a book,” says Becky. Her goal is to help others Cultivate a Good Life and Record It.


Here is some more info straight from Shelli Garnder, Stampin’ Up! CEO:

Excited?   I am!   Let me know if I can answer any questions for you or if you are interested in finding out more about being part of our Stampin’ Up! family.

Finally today, I have a reward for you reading all the way to the end….free money!
