Hello Everyone!!! It is Saturday and today I am holding a Stamping Class in my home. I am so excited to hold the class. I have not had one since this summer due to being so busy with my children and adjusting to our school season. Even this week was crazy busy, but we made it through and I am so blessed because my family all worked together to get everything ready for our day!

After class, I am looking forward to going to Village Creek Bible Camp to go on a Scrapbook Retreat. Although, I will probably not scrapbook during this time. I am planning on stamping this round and enjoying some quiet time reading and relaxing. I will also definitely look forward to time with mom and friends. We always laugh a lot when we are together.

Well you all know that today is Our Daily Bread Designs Shining Light Challenge! This week's Challenge is....
your choice of our top 3 challenges at ODBD: 
1- Sparkle
2- Dies or Punches
3- Texture it

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, $ 15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for thprize must be submitted by Thursday, November 4. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

This first project that I created uses the Glitzy Lace technique from the August/ September 2010 Technique Junkies Newsletter.
