A couple of months ago I went through the certification process to become an SDU instructor. Yesterday I received my certificate and pin!!! I feel official now. I work part-time at Michaels and I was very excited when this opportunity to teach scrapbook classes there came up. I can't wait to teach my first class. Hopefully, that'll be soon!

This Friday is an all day crop at Michaels and I get to work it. I'm planning to work on a board/poster to promote SDU at the crop. Below is the page I created to put on the board. I used only supplies found at Michaels to make it.

My First Post!!!!

Good Morning! Well, I've jumped into the world of blogging. I don't really know what I'm doing, but I will give this a whirl. I plan to make this blog all about my scrapbooking, cross stitching, and my love of Disney.

I've been a cross stitcher for more than 25 years. I discovered scrapbooking a little over 6 years ago and it pushed cross stitching to the back burner. I've been trying to find a way to put my two favorite hobbies together and I've just recently done that!!!!

Below is a page from a scrapbook I am making of my son. I am stitching the monthly Britty Kitty series by Brittercup and will make a page for each month with photos of my son to go along with that month. I plan to use photos of my son from all different ages.

This is the first month I have completed:

I've also been working on some pages for a swap that I'm in. The swap is a Disney page swap using sketches. Each person in the group makes a page from the sketch assigned to that group. We've all picked different topics (like General Disney, Disney Colors, Mickey Mouse, etc.).
This is my Minnie Mouse take on one of the sketches:
