A little more MDS

Hello!  I hope all of you are safe and sound from the storms last night.  We are of the lucky people who did not lose hydro and other than branches and some flower pots strewn over the lawn, no harm was done here.  I do know that quite a few of you were without hydro for some time, I hope that's all been restored by now :)  Today's post is something I just made up to frame to advertise for MDS. This week there are AWESOME deals for the MDS kits PLUS free downloads, don't miss them!!  Anyways, I better make it quick, Parent Meeting tonight and some prep for this Saturday's card class!  Have a great night and thanks for stopping by :)

Digital Scrapbook Day - You don't want to miss this!

Happy Sunday:)  What a great day to be snuggled up with the family.  We're enjoying a nice quiet Sunday (for now!)  Today's post is a chore chart I made for Hannah and Kayla.  This was totally inspired by one of the on-line classmates with Heather's Simply MDS2 class (her name escapes me) but I loved her creation!  We're working on having the girls become a little more responsible for their things so mommy isn't CONSTANTLY picking up after them!  To go along with today's post I want to tell all of you to make sure you go to my site tmw to check out all the AMAZING deals!  There are stamp sets that are 15% off for tmw only and PLUS for Oct.29-Nov. 5 all Digital kits are 50% off PLUS there will be FREE downloads, yes FREE!! So make sure you hop on over to www.stampaholicsteph.stampinup.net to download yours!  For stamp orders, you can e-mail me before 8pm tmw as I will be placing an order, this will save you on shipping, if I receive 10 stamp orders, I'll pay for YOUR shipping!  Hope you have a warm and cozy day :)

Simply Start Blog Hop!

Thanks for hopping over!  I'm so excited to be doing this, Heather has such an amazing team full of very talented stampers so I hope you'll hop on through to see everyone's creations!
Our theme is Hallowe'en so I have made up an MDS page from Hannah's first Hallowe'en.  The witch is inspired by Kim Score of PaperPunchAddicitons, loved this little punch art witch!  My other favourite element on this page is the 'happy hallowe'en' stamp from the Scaredy Cat set.  I LOVE being able to colour stamps in MDS2!  I hope you're all having a great start to the week and take some time to hop on over to Susie Hamms blog!

Fun at the Toronto Zoo

Good morning!  Had an AWESOME club night last night!  Thanks Ladies for coming out :)  Today's post are 2 of my MDS pages I made at the cottage.  We took a ton of pictures (well Aaron did) and it was so hard to pic...I could've easily made a whole book on our 2 day trip!  But I'm trying to keep everything together by year, so I picked out our favourites and plunked them in.  Super easy and fast.  Love you MDS :)  If any of you are looking for some good deals, the clearance rack is full of them, including MDS content, so head on over and check it out

Two Step with Frost White shimmer Paint

It's Club night this week...and I actually have everything cut and ready...just need to clean now!  This is one of the projects we'll be making this Friday.  Unfortunately I don't have the beautiful serene snowflakes set...so Northern Flurry (retired) had to do!  This card is super easy, a little messy, and much nicer in real life...I tried using some natural light to capture the effect of the shimmer paint...Aaron would have a cow if he saw this pic and tell me at least 5 ways I should've taken it!  Oh well, I know you guys understand!  I did get the D90 out to do some pics for some flyers...been awhile since I did that, and I must say, it does make a huge difference, you'll see on my post tmw with some super cute cards for the Duff largie Church fundraiser in Dutton, I love this event, it's  such a great bunch of women!  Anywho, enough rambling!  Hope you're having a great week and thanks so much for stopping by!
