Scallop Purse Tutorial

Yes, I am still here! I am so sorry!  Let's just say that I have had LOTS going on since coming back from Convention. Spent the Summer trying to get more Organized (work in progress) and really made a dent in things. But also wanted to spend as much time with my Son before he started 1st grade and he's be in school ALL DAY long.  I think he's finally used to it! Poor thing his first week he comes home and says "Mom, when do I get to come home early?" Awe! He didn't realize that those were the new hours now. Oh, then Hubby and  I were planning our Anniversary get away, had a blast in Cambria, Ca. Very nice and quiet there.

But anyway, am now getting back to the swing of things and wanted to start the week with a video that I said I was going to make of the Scallop Purses I made for Convention.  So enjoy and if you have any questions please let me know.  Thanks for stopping by and being patient while I get my blog back up and running.

Happy Stampin,
