Operation Write Home At Paradise Scrapbook Boutique

Good Morning.....Yesterday was our monthly get together for Operation Write Home at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique. I love getting together with everyone and making cards (which we all love doing) for a cause. Every month I tell myself I will work on kits and then on the day of the get together, I'll be ready to just sit and glue them all together. intentions are always good, but rarely do my plans become actions. Guess what! This month, following in the foot steps of my buddies, Carolyn, Virginia,Mary Jane and Cathy.....I did it! I actually went prepared! Wah Hoo!
As do all card makers and scrapbookers....I have tons of scrap paper....I made these cards out of the scraps I've been collecting (well not all of them....I could make cards forever and never run out!) I used the same sketch for all the cards, but the papers make them all look different. Now I need to think of a new sketch for next month.....
We always have room for more people. There are lots of papers, embellishments, etc. ready for every one's use. So, if you can glue and can use a scissors, join us. You'll learn and hopefully you too will become addicted to card making and make some really great friends doing so.
I swear that card making has helped me loose weight (40 pounds so far!) When I'm crafting, I'm so focused that I don't eat!. Of course you still have to exercise (walking is my exercise of choice) and you do have to watch what you eat at meal times....We talked about this yesterday and everyone, come and join our great weight loss program! LOL!
July 1st I'll be joining a group to make an absolutely beautiful album. Check out Karen's blog page to see it. The class is sold out, but if you check the blog page you'll be able to see what's up for July. Karen's good at keeping us up to date on what's going on at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique.

I guess I'd best get some housework done. I moved a table into the family room so, in the evenings, I can spend quality time with my husband. There are paper snips everywhere!
Have a wonderful week.....
