One note about the last picture. For some reason this kid likes to stick his tongue out. When I see this picture I flash forward to a 15 year old Blake rockin' to KISS (I really hope not, but he looks like he might give me a run for my money).

Of course, I wanted to provide a peek at the evening and so I made sure to capture a video before the festivities began. Enjoy!

Open House FAQ: What are Stamp Bucks?
My upcoming open house on February 20th at 7pm is a free treat for all my customers. As an attendee you have the ability to earn "stamp bucks" which will then be used to bid on a wide selection of prizes. The more stamp bucks you earn (through the methods listed below), the more "money" you have to "buy" the available product in the silent and live auction.
For my distant readers, I will invite you in through pictures sometime after my big open house. Don't want to spoil the surprise for those who will get to make it to the celebration.
Hope to see the locals at an upcoming class or crop night!

Far too often I am not featured in my scrapbooks and by I mean not "featured," I mean not in pictures at all. When I first saw this layout I was going to use it to scrap a couple pictures of Brian and I from our wedding. To my dismay I couldn't find my cd of wedding photos, so plan b. I actually gave into the idea of taking self portraits and using those shots. Surprisingly, I am thrilled with how my shots of myself turned out and how perfect they are for the page.
I am having so much fun decorating my new house. When we were in the mobile home I never had the desire to dress it up. I had my loved family pictures up on the wall, but never anything I would consider art. This is a picture of the shelf in my guest bathroom/laundry room. A little while back I was talking to a friend who does Uppercase Living and came to the conclusion that because I had so many ideas of decorating with the product, that I should just sign up. So, I did. The "do something Creative everyday" is one of the first things I purchased. Yes, I know it is an interesting statement for my bathroom, but hey it is my scraproom bathroom and I am loving it. :)
No worries, UL isn't going to take over, I am still all about Close To My Heart. If you are interested in vinyl lettering/expressions for your wall, I am happy to share though and you can even explore the website at www.createwithchristine.uppercaseliving.net.
