Bikes, Scoops and Eclipse

I can't believe I've gone this long without posting anything. It's just been one of those summers so far....still lots of baseball going on, craziness at work, and most importantly my oldest son graduated from high school, woohoo! it's still so hard to believe he's all grown up, but he's sooooo glad to be done.

Oh Oh, I almost forgot.....Eclipse is out and I've already seen it twice :o) I went to the opening midnight showing, got 1 1/2 hours of sleep as I had to be at work that morning, but it was totally worth it, LOL! I know I'm obsessed but I think this was the best one yet.

But anyway, the new Stampin'Up! catalog is out and full of lots of new products and ideas. I seem to always go mad when it first arrives...first check out what new accessories are in the back of the catalog, then start my wish list, then start grazing over every page checking out all the great ideas and samples they've created, then I got back and start checking out all the stamp sets and adding to my wish list. I know, it probably sounds odd but that's the way I do it :o)

I've had these two new stamp sets for a while now and finally had a chance to play with them. Here's a couple quick samples I made up. Enjoy, and I hope you all had a fun and safe 4th!
