Poem from Elenor

Hello Pumpkin
From one pumpkin to another!!!!!!!

A woman was asked by a coworker,
'What is it like to be a Christian?'

She replied, 'It is like being a pumpkin.'
God picks you from the patch, brings you in,
and washes all the dirt off of you.
Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.
He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed..
Then He carves you a new smiling face and
puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.'

This was passed on to me by another pumpkin.
Now it's your turn to pass it to other pumpkins.

I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch.

I'm very happy you have come to look at my blog.  Google adwords has underlined single words in my post DON'T CLICK ON THEM. If you click on them they will take you off my blog.
I will have to figure out how to get rid of them. Thanks, Carolyn

scrapbooking weekends are just stamping , cards and fun with Berry Trifle

Sherrill is testing out the dessert she made.
Berry Triffle
Use 1 1/2 angel food cake use large pieces put half
in the bottom put a vanilla pudding over it (try not to let it set)
Use 1 pkg of dream whip
then layer blueberries, raspberries and strawberries
then layer cake, pudding and dreamwhip again.
Then finish off with all the berries again.
Not only is it pretty but very good.... so the gals say 

When you leave home hubby is always on your mind
so use the banana phone and call home......

Scrapbooking weekend with Sherrill Graff

Carolyn Garland, Sherrill Graff and Stampin Up Products

Sherrill has been in Canada with George and I
for 5 days now and has been sharing some fun stamping ideas.
All the girls are so happy when Sherrill comes here
They learn so many many new things.

One of the first ideas she shared this time around was
How to make hand painted papers using stampin up ink refills and
whisper white cardstock.

She calls the technique Hand Painted Papers

The paper can be torn while it is still wet to give you a ruff edge

When the paper is wet you can tear it and roll it into flowers.

You can stamp images onto the wet paper so the ink absorbs into it like she did with these leaves.

We used sponge daubers to apply the inks so that the colors would be closer
together since we were working with such small papers.

Friday night Carolyn and her stamping gals had a shoe box swap

Sherrill's Swap card

Carolyn's swap card

The girls covered a large paper clip Carolyn gave them.

Then Sherrill taught how to make multi colored ink pads
using stampin up supplies.

This is a multi colored pad made out of an old so saffron ink pad.
so saffron, pumpkin pie and soft suede ink was used.

This image was stamped in a multi color versa mark pad
(Sherrill is teaching this class again in Virginia at the end of the month for Barbara's friends)
