10xsmillion… is an amazing chocolate from Russell Stover!  OH!!   I have only eaten one.  I did share with my man.  Did NOT share with the kids, yet.  Here’s a little box I designed when I found myself the owners of this amazing chocolate.  Of course, I bought a box of them (36!) and I was NOT going to eat them all.  Although, I was tempted.  There is nothing too special about the box as far as making it is concerned.

Last year, I had a customer ask me for “Thank You” Christmas gifts for the craft fair.  I made a few gum wrappers with Thank You on them.  However, this was my real answer to her request.  I am not sure if she came and shopped with me at the craft fair this year or not.  I did sell some of these beauties!

There were new digital downloads released yesterday!  You know that I love MDS (ok, really, what don’t I love about Stampin’ Up! ??)  I try to scrapbook at least once a week!

Here’s the one that’s got me all giddy (click on the image below to go to my website):


Why does it have me all giddy?  Well, I love punches, background paper, tags, decor, cards and embellishments.  This kit, Snowy Soiree Ensemble has it all!!  YAY!!   Now, if you are a football fan, they came out with Tailgating Ensemble!  We here at the Schroeger house, don’t watch a whole lot of sports.

Know what else I forgot to tell you?  A new photopolymer stamp set came out!!  I have this one in my cart (as well as a bunch of other things!! LOL).  It’s called:  Bite me


I love the photopolymer stamp sets (are you shocked?  Nah, didn’t think so).  They stamp clean and clear.  You can see through them and stamp anywhere you want.  I can’t wait to get my hands on this one!

Simply My Digital Studio Challenge

I belong to a Facebook Group called Simply My Digital Studio Challenge.  What a great group!  Kimberly Van Diepen and Heather Summers run this group and they are premier MDS’ers!!  Anyway, they posted a sketch this week and it took me all week to get to it but I got it in!  If you are on Facebook and you want to learn more about MDS, this is an AMAZING group!!  Join it today!!

The photos have been taken over the years of my friend, Cathy Casey and I.  Every one of these photos were taken at airports.  Usually at o’dark thirty!!  We travel to Stampin’ Up! Convention and Leadership just about every year!  This year we drove to Convention together!  What a hoot!!

My boys…

Tuesday, new downloads were released!  (Btw, EVERY Tuesday new downloads are released) This week’s downloads are AWESOME!!  I can’t wait to order some.  Want to see them?  Click here:  September 17, 2013 downloads.  I am super excited by the Ruffled Trim download and Festive Flurry Kit download.  Naturally, there are a few more of them in my cart….

This is a continuation of my favorite pictures.  This will be a HUGE album and you never know what’s going to go into it!  Sometimes it’s random stuff that I love… (that’s a hint for a page I am thinking of creating!)  So, no book would be complete without pictures of my boys.  Actually, I have quite a few pictures of them that will make the book!  (quite a few = 50 or so! LOL)  I love how the paper looks all crinkled!!  There is an overlay (see the links below) that is just a MUST have.  Play with the colors and opacity to really make it pop! Super fun!
