Well, the last time I posted was when I was returning from the Stampin’ Up! convention in Utah. I took a little time with the family, and then got sucked right into marching band stuff with my daughter! I chaperoned band camp, which occured during Hurricane Irene, leaving us stuck at camp with 89 teenagers and no power for three days. The kids were terrific, the staff and fellow chaperones were terrific, but boy was I glad to get home and get a shower!
Then upon arrival home I got busy helping to sew flags for the marching band color guard. The show this year is Tommy, and we made three different flags… all with difficult circles and silver lame fabric. The eleven flags that I made had nine appliques EACH and took a ton of time to sew. Truly a labor of love! Check out the Pinball flags below.
So, suffice it to say, I have been a bit distracted from scrapbooking and card-making… but gee, I have about two thousand pictures from the trip to Utah, and marching band so far, that are calling to be scrapbooked! I’ll keep you posted! and share some fun stuff as I go along.
