One Time at Band Camp ...

So, my daughters are in the Guard and it's Band Camp time. I've been making posters, banners, visors for the chaperones, and cut-outs. I'm in the process now of making little give-aways, similar to Girl Scout swaps. Totally fun and gives me a chance to learn SCAL and Ink Scape.

So, of course I think I can do all this quickly, but the learning curve has slowed me down. It's just amazing, however, how much wonderful information is available on the web!!! I LOVE Michelle's tutorials at Scrapping Table. I've learned so much!!! And, so quickly. Thanks, Michelle!!

So, as I progress and get through Band Camp, I'll come back and post what I've learned and what I've made!!!

Another middle of the night post

Here I am, close to 2 am, and still looking at cricut designs and obsessing over so many projects.

Had to share ... I've made it to "CHIRPER" status on the Cricut Message Board!! Kinda lame, I guess, but very exciting for me!!! I'm so easily amused!!!

Lots of projects in the works ... all for Band/Guard Camp. Photos soon!!!
