I've been "grounded"

To say the least......I have been grounded from uploading or downloading anything on the Internet. I live in an area where I have dial up or satellite for my Internet options. I was never informed that I was only allowed to upload & download a certain amount of stuff each month. I must stay at or below 70% of my bandwidth in order to not be grounded. I was informed that i was in violation of the Fair Access Policy. Had I known there was a limit each month for satellite customers I would have gladly stayed within my range and not made a little piggy of myself. So long story short....that's where I have been. I have been watching my numbers and have finally reached a point where I am safe again. OK with that said Here are a few cards & a page I have been working on and/or received this past month. Three of the cards were made on Wednesday at Sam's. The red card is her shoebox. I am sorry i have been out if it so long I forgot to get who makes the stamp. I think it is Sassafrass but not positive. She picked it up at the Stamp convention that was just in Mesa, Az on the 19th. Carolyn made the golf card with a stamp she picked up at Creative Quest in Glendale, Az. It is hard to see but the middle picture is popped up. Thanks Sam & Carolyn! Our next card is from Vickie....I had never tried the masking tape technique before and Vickie who is fairly new to stamping walked us through. She used her new SU! set "Touch of Nature" with Real Rust, Chocolate Chip & white. I love how the making tape makes it look like bark or woody. Great card Vickie. One of our stamping buds...Laura went back to work so doesn't get to stamp with us much anymore but she does still send me cards that are cute as ever. Laura has her mojo always going, I swear. We miss her creativity. She sent me the next two cards, which I love. Thank you for the Thank you cards Laura

The digi page is of my DGD....she is 18 months old and such a hoot. She didn't want to take her Uncle Steve's gag glasses off. She finally pulled the arm off so they wouldn't stay on anymore & then she lost interest. In the meantime we sure had fun with her.

Fun pages

OK first I want to say I didn't make it to the Wednesday stamping group so i figured i should post something so here are 3 pages i have played with. Being a gingerbreadaholic, I fell in love with these cute little Gingerbread Boys.

I Love this Kit, I knew it would make a cute page for the newlyweds. We are fortunate to have the Easter Bunny come to hide eggs for us every year. A few of the grand kids are scared to death of this big ole love able bunny. I think the adults get more of a kick out of him and the kids reactions to the bunny than the kids get out of the bunny actually coming to see us. Kit is Wild Sorbet by Michelle Coleman of The brown scalloped paper is by Sandy Kreiger's kit Embrace Life from Memory Makers. Template RLDS_5PhotoTemplate byRed Leaf DigiScrapping
We went to the Redwoods in Klamath on our last vacation and I loved this big carving so naturally I had my SIL take a picture of DH and I. I used the same kit as above. I love bright vibrant colors and these definitely fit that category.

I am in the process of making something to post that is not a layout. Hopefully I can get that done over the weekend. Happy stamping, crafting digiscrapping or whatever make you happy!
