2012 Moments Captured

Amy was busy last week finishing up the designs, and I've been working all week kitting our 2nd class kit of this series.  We're teaching it this Sunday from 10AM - 1PM at Scrapbook Daisies.  The new time was requested by people according to Tony.  (I have heard from several of you that Sunday mornings are a bad time, so in the future, we will be sure to teach in the afternoon only on Sundays.)  There is a class that starts at 1:30 so unfortunately, we have to be out of there right on time.  But as with all our kits, we have both written and photo directions.  And if you are a "hands on" type person, just let me know when you will be at Daisies and I can drop off my pages with Tony and you can use them there to work on your pages. 
If you can't make the class, but would like a kit, just call Tony to reserve one.  You can pick them up starting Sunday.  If you missed the first class, but would like a kit, email me and I can either bring it with me on Sunday or mail it to you.
We used the Lily Bee Handmade collection kit and some of the Double Dutch pages as well, along with cardstock, bling, and twine for these pages.  This class includes April, May, June, July and August. 

Here's a little sneak peek of a couple of the pages:

Hope to see you tomorrow.

2nd Installment of our 12 Months Captured in 2012 Class

I'm so proud of myself.  I have actually added all my photos and journaling for the months of January and February in my 12 Months Captured in 2012 / Moments Captured album. 

Our second installment of this class is April 1st from 10AM - 1PM at Scrapbook Daisies in Long Beach.  Stop by or give Tony a call to register today.  Unfortunately, there isn't a sample at the store yet, because we were waiting for the new Lily Bee product to arrive.  You can be sure that it will be the same quality that Amy always designs and the product is so worth the wait.  The cost of this class is $25 and includes the months of April, May, June, July and August.  (That includes 2 - 12x12 pages with the 6x12 journaling page for each month.)  Remember to bring your album (with your page protectors inserted) and the remaining items (chip pieces, word sheet and month stickers) from the last class.

If you can't make the class, reserve your kit with Tony and you can pick it up anytime starting April 1st.
If you missed the first installment, no worries.  We have several of the first kits still available.  Just email me directly at  The cost of the first class is $38.

Oreo Cookie Turns 100 Today

Today is Oreo cookie's birthday. And it's not just any birthday; Oreo is turning the big 100. That means we have been twisting, licking, and dunking America's favorite cookie for an entire century.
According to The New York Times, it all started on March 6, 1912, when The National Biscuit Company sold its first Oreo sandwich cookies to S.C. Thuesen, a grocer in Hoboken, New Jersey — and the rest was history.

I saw this cupcake on Bakergirl's blog and if I wasn't trying to cut back, I would be tempted to give it a try.  Maybe one of you will and will let me know how wonderful it is.
