Today is one of the happiest days ever!!

My laptop is finally fixed!! Can you believe it? I sure can't but I'm happy as a clam. I have been suffering for at least six months or longer because of a bad AC adapter power supply cord. I have been so frustrated that not a single company could ship me the correct part. The cord came today (thanks Mr. Fed Ex man) and let me tell you I tore through the box. I even broke a few finger nails while opening the box. Mr. Lappy finally works and stays on with full power. Woo Hoo. :D

I thought I'd share a few cards this week from the Make and Takes I did at Scrapfest on Sunday. Remember I only went to about 10 booths out of 32. It was very busy at the Mall of America and I normally only go there a few times a year. Today's card was from American Crafts. I loved their project and the card is going to my sister Samantha this week. I had fun working with their rub ons. I don't normally use them so I think I will now. I like American Craft products especially their ribbon, paper, ZAP embossing gun, Zing embossing powders, and Thickers. The young woman running the table I sat at was just a doll. I really appreciate the vendors coming to MN to participate in Scrapfest and I try to let them know. Its very hard on them. Trust me I know because I worked at Scrapfest for three years in the Hero Arts booth. It takes a few days to recover from an event of that size. I hope you all have a great week. I will list the items I won Saturday night at the Basic Grey crop on Tuesday. I have so much work to do this week and tons of class samples and kits to prepare. Thanks for stopping by my friends.

For those of you that have sent my sister a card, she asked me about it tonight. I think she is wondering what I am up to. So far she has received two cards and I have to mail her one. Thanks girls Amy, Lindsay and Sherry. She really was so surprised and asked me about it. I have not told her all the details. If you want to know how you too can read a nice prize read the post on my blog from last week. You still have until Sept. 30 to make her a card. My family lost their dog Yoda a few weeks ago and Samantha is taking it the hardest. I am giving a very nice Memory Box prize to one lucky winner and it will get mailed around the first of October. Email me if you have any questions. Tami

If you received this post twice its because I pressed pubish post instead of save as a draft. I had not proofread it yet. Geez when will I ever learn to slow down??
