The Astonishing Susan Boyle!!!!!

I am sure all of you have heard of Susan Boyle! If not - wow - you are really missing out! She appeared on the British version of American Idol which is called Britain's Got Talent and was a major astonishment as well as extremely talented. The blog posted on You Tube has had over 42 million hits as of this morning. The things that I love about her is this:

1. I believe the message here is two fold. One should never judge a book by its cover. I know personally when my husband and I saw the beginning of this video, I am sure most people were thinking how bad this act was going to be. The best part is we were completely surprised and awe struck at her performance (especially Simon’s reaction)

2. When you really want to, when you truly believe in yourself, everything and anything is truly and absolutely possible.

See her performance here:

She is very inspiring and I am so proud of her even though I of course don't know her. She makes me feel good inside! She is an inspiration to me and my Stampin' Up! business! See you soon, Renee

I Am Loving My Stampin' Up Stuff !!!

Hi everyone! I have finally had some time to stamp and that is GrEaT!

I am starting to work on Mother's Day cards and then I just had to share a couple of cards that I made a while back. With all of the weddings, I did not get a chance to take pictures of them or post them!

I used all Stampin' Up Products in these 2 cards and I have to say I am addicted to Dazzling Diamonds!


I just got this picture of my grandson last night and I wanted to share with you!
His name is Kale and he is 3 1/2 years old. He LoVeS to stamp with me! I will have to show you some pictures next week of him stamping away. He has carribean blue eyes, but they did not show up in this picture. *Bummer*

BE SURE TO COME BACK ON MONDAY, APRIL 27TH FOR THE LNS BLOG HOP. You will not want to miss it! I will be showing examples of the Summer Love Rub-ons and then I will direct you to the next stop!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you soon! Renee

New Invitation for a June Bride

I have a June 20th wedding and she only wants 200 of these invitations! ONLY!
She brought me this picture and I have no idea where the stamp came from. Any ideas out there where this stamp can be purchased? Thanks for stopping by and come back soon! Renee

OOPS - I forgot one of my favorite Brides!

This Bride was an absolute doll and I did make her maps for her since her original ones were wrong!

I HaVe BeEn CrAzY BuSy

I wish I have had more time to stamp, but weddings have been taking up all of my spare time! I am not complaining as I love each and every one of my Brides. I just haven't had time to get glitter in my hair or ink on my fingers! There is a lot of clutter that I am proud of though. LOL. Here are the pictures of the weddings I have made cakes, flowers, and sugar flowers for so you can see what has been keeping me tied in knots!
