Have you ever seen a Coonhound surf?

... Well now you have! Here are a couple pictures of Roxy surfing. We had soooo much fun at the beach with her. I knew for sure that she'd be scared of the waves- they were pretty big for St. George Island. But she went right for them (when she wasn't chasing the birds). She would run out until she was chest deep and then as soon as a wave would break she'd ride it in- it was hysterical! Part of the reason Roxy got her name was because of the brand name (for surfing gear, clothes etc.). Hubby is so proud that she lives up to her name!

And now.... for a real post!

So I was very proud of myself for making a blog to post my craft projects on, but I can already tell it is going to be a struggle. I can never seem to have myself, a computer, pictures of my projects and time together all at the same time- I'll get better though! Anyway, I finally have some pictures of the cards I've been making. Somehow I have managed to send out the best one without taking a picture- but these are some of my first attempts.

The top picture is a card I made for my friend's birthday. I think the cut is from Cuttin Up. The picture doesn't really show the details, I used vellum for the martini glass & glittered on the pink paper (I would say stickled, but I used the knock-off brand... or "knock-down" as my mom would say :o)

This first one was an anniversary card for my parents. I used Accent Essentials and the paper is DCWV Old World.

I made this card using Paper Pups- I love the little "Yappy Easter" bunny :) The flower on the inside is a crystal I got from the $ bin at Joann's & the stem is some MM green wire I've had forever. I thought it added a nice little touch.
For this Easter card I used AE and Doodlecharms- for the basket. It wasn't quite my vision but I think it turned out ok... maybe a little funky, but ok!

I'm working on my picture taking... I think I've gotten better but I can't post my new ones yet until I send them out! I hope to work on some layouts this weekend. My sister gave me an album for my puppy and I got some great pictures at the beach that I want to scrap!

Test... Test One... Test 2

I've never done a blog before- so far it seems fairly easy. This first post is just me testing the waters to make sure I'm doing it right. I'll be back later to actually post something interesting!
