About Me

My photo
I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

Stamp Something






I am trying to start the new year by organizing my life (don't laugh) This week we have organized the kitchen, the boys' rooms and the play room. What is left is my craft/office. I am not looking forward to that. This is the card I did for the Stamp Something challenge sketch. If you have never stamped using a sketch, give it a try (Jenny) I have to say that since I have been using sketched I have become a much better stamper. You can do the Stamp Something sketch until Thursday, so check out their site I really liked this sketch, I new I wanted to keep it simple and clean. I have to admit that I stamped that (fill in the blank) bottle about 10 times I just couldn't get it right. I embossed, I colored, you name it I did it. All of my supplies are SU except ( I hate to say it) the stamp is from Stamps Happens, INC. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
