My latest projects

So, there are definitely some advantages to being in a card swap and being on the Enrichment committee. I don't think I would ever sit down to make cards or scrapbook if I wasn't.

This month's theme for my card swap was Baby Girl and I am quite pleased with how this one turned out. I LOVE MY CUTTLEBUG! I'm not sure I'll ever go back to rubber stamping!

And here is the 2-page layout that I have done for the inaugural meeting of our Scrapbooking Enrichment "activity". The page on the left was inspired by a Becky Higgins page that I saw recently. Once again, I used my Cuttlebug heavily. Isn't it just so cute? (if I do say so myself...;-) ) Now that I have finally done some scrapbooking I can justify going to the Scrapbook USA Expo tomorrow and buy some more supplies! To the Fort Wayne crowd - guess who I always see when I'm there? Beth Anderson - and she's always sitting in the same spot!

Since I am on the topic of Enrichment Activities, I would just like to take this opportunity to say how strongly I feel about the importance of Relief Society, and in particular, Enrichment meetings. Although I understand the wisdom behind the decision to change Enrichment Meetings to only 4 times a year, I fear that many wards have completely lost the vision to have these smaller Enrichment "Activities" on a regular basis. Women need women! We need this interaction with our sisters for our own benefit and for the sake of unity within the ward. That is why I am a woman on a mission! This month I am launching a monthly Scrapbooking activity and a monthly Recipe Exchange. No small task in Utah where I have found, ironically, it is extremely difficult to get people interested in associating with other members of the ward! Alright, I'll get down off of my soapbox now.
