Lots of Water under the Mississippi Bridge

Since last we chatted, I've been to Galena, Davenport, Moline and back. Had a great visit with Sue from Sue's Ink and Stamp (absolutely LOVE her must go and visit) in Galena. Watched the boxes of goodies arrive as we spoke!!!! Scored some more Perfect Pearls Mists and some more Dies from Sizzix. She has tons of wonderful Ranger products, Sizzix, Stamps galore, and INKS...of course. And saw my dear friend Jan Ketza at her shop Galena Beads. She has more beads than you can possibly imagine and all the wonderful Vintaj pieces. Such a sweetheart, and that shop was really busy!!!! Hope you had a great weekend.

Got some brand new items at Scrapaganza, too. Loads of things came in the night before the class.......lots of hard to find TIM stuff. Papers, dies, tapes, the Configurations, and STAMPS! Yes, they have it all.....go before they're all gone! Thanks so much to the students and Kelli and Beth. A good time was had by all, and we got all our projects done. Thanks to Alisa and Michelle, too. Great staff. Forgot the camera in the car with Bill, but you will not believe how much new stuff they have in the shop. Just Go!

This is another pin I put together to wear to class. It has the Ten Seconds Studio metal and the Rosette Die with a Tattered Floral flower sprayed with Perfect Pearls Blue Smoke and an Accoutrement from Tim.

Here are the little lovelies as a group down on the Mississippi River levy before homecoming for a terrific photo opt. I just knew one of the girls was going to jump back and knock one of the guys into the fountain....luckily it didn't happen. Alex, my grandson, is the one on the far right.

Such gorgeous colors for the girls dresses, and of course the guys ties HAD to match. The hanging baskets on the riverfront were just perfect!

I like to help keep the LSS going. So for my part, I did some shopping, of course.
Remembering that is very important. I like Michael's and Hobby Lobby, but you can't get the early releases and great help with products like you do at you local Scrapbook/Stamp/Art stores. So SHOP!

This is Erin's project with Perfect Pearls Mists, the Rickety House Die and the Bats from Bewitching Hour.

Not to be outdone by Miss Emma, who wants you to notice that she's lost her FIRST tooth!!! Or is that just my imagination? She liked the Witch that had been texturized with the Texture Fade Cobwebs. And some black ink over the top. All papers are from Sweet Margie's collection at the Girls Paperie.
AND last but not least, Morton HS Marching band scored another GRAND CHAMPIONSHIP at Champaign Saturday....MORTON ROCKS! If you get a chance to see this show, you'll be moved to tears, I guarantee it. Simply Stunning.
Got some Configurations in the thoughts are running through my head, searching for ideas to decorate these fantastic little creations.
Have a great week!

Ooo, can't wait to see what you do with the configs (abbv., lol) Glad class was good, wish I could have been there, and good to hear about the new stuff at Scrapaganza!

Wish those shops were closer to me. No time to travel at the present. Great pics of the lovely young people! And Miss Emma - what a charmer! Your new corsage is gorgeous!

I love your pin! And the 3 column blog--something I've been wanting to go to.
