VC-Rocks Blog Hop - the fun begins NOW!

Welcome to the VC-Rocks Blog Hop. If you are joining part-way thru the hop , the starting point is VCRocks Home -, however, you may see the links below for the next one after mine and continue at your leisure. You may have landed here from Carolyn Sharkas's blog at At any rate, WELCOME! Look for the next blog link after my project. While you're here, please follow my blog for future fun project ideas!

I created this scrapbook layout for my Stamp Club for June. It is a 2 page, 12x12 layout. We used the Frost White Shimmer paint (sponged onto the stamps), the new Fourth of July set, the Priceless stamp set and the large star punch and the retiring small star punch. The pattern paper is the new Presto Patterns and the retiring Bride specialty pattern paper. We sponged Night of Navy ink on the Presto patterns cross grid strips and Real Red on the Bride Specialty stripe strips.

For more fun stuff, continue to the next blog on the hop: Alexandria's ReadyCraftCreate

Watch for our next Blog Hop : July 17/18


Ah, moving is SO much fun!!!!

But, it needs to be done. In case you've missed my saga, here is the Nancy's digest condensed version... we decided over two years ago that it would be wise to plan for mom and dad to be living in the same house as us as they are getting to the point where they need some extra help, and we all are adamant that we won't be shipping them off to a nursing home or assisted living place unless it were absolutely medically necessary... so we started talking about building a house. Well, here we are - we had hoped to be in the house last September (!), but purchasing the acre from our daughter and son-in-law was insanely difficult thanks to the employee of Chase who no longer works there, because evidently she did others like she did us (fax that to me TODAY - then not look at it for 2 weeks after my wonderful SIL called her three times to ask about it... then something else always had to be done that she hadn't communicated to him, etc, rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat - when she was replaced, her replacement got us finished in 2 weeks!), then the county approving the plat of the land took months, plus an additional $6K in surveyor's fees (which he definitely earned:), etc, etc, etc...

Now, FINALLY, Bo will, dare I say it? - be able to get our building permit next week, but, since we decided it was time to close the LBC chapter of our lives and move on to a different ministry - we know not where or what at this point... it may be just taking care of mom and dad... we have to be out of this house (church parsonage) by WEDNESDAY - can you say... "Nancy is not packed yet" with me???

So today, I am packing, moving stuff and will be repeating that tomorrow, Sunday after church, Monday and Tuesday (thank God our SIL is off today and tomorrow and is willing and eager to help, God bless him!). I need to film and upload my blog hop entry... it is a 2 page scrapbook layout for the 4th of July, so hopefully it will inspire you... but then, once I get that done, I'm off the computer (yeah, we'll see) for a while!

Have a lovely weekend, and think of me while I'm packing, sorting and moving... and if you're in the Houston area and want to come help, I'll give you directions to my house, lol!!!

Blog Hop this weekend!

Just a heads up to be watching for a great blog hop by some of the ladies of VC-Rocks! VC-Rocks, in case you've never heard of it, is a group of SU aficionados who mostly do not get to go to convention for one reason or other, so we have a Virtual Convention (the VC in VC-Rocks). The group has evolved a bit over the years, but is always GREAT FUN!

Please check back this weekend and see the special goodies being shared - you may start on my blog and continue through the cycle. We have some extremely talented ladies in the group, and I'm honored to be included in the blog hop!

Thanks for stopping by!
