No Fear

of Flying???? Anyone who knows me knows I am terrified to fly....and when I took a ride in this tiny plane, no one believed me! I have had this LO sitting on my table just waiting to get photographed and posted. Labor Day weekend I went to New Hampshire to visit my friend Gail and her husband took me for a ride in his plane - it was a beautiful Fall weekend in new Hampshire and we had a lovely time and a lot of laughs. Took a bunch of silly more to come. Loved working with these great papers too!

A Little Sassafrass Lass and the 1st Day of School

Since I have no school age kids I need to wait to get some photos of the grandkid's first day of school. Shane started Kindergarten this year and he was so excited to be able to go on the BIG yellow bus! He loves his teacher "pretty much" but thinks there is too much work and not enough play. Shane is perpetual motion and on the go every waking minute. My daughter Jami is starting to "think like a scrapbooker" and thought to take a picture of the bus as it pulled away! I love how the Jenni Bowlin Bingo card looks as a frame for the photo of the bus. One of these days I will really stitch on layouts instead of using a pen. I used crackle Paint on the Chipboard apple and also used a White Signo pen to outline the Jillibean Soup alphas for the title.
Aidan started second grade and just looking at his picture I am amazed how grown up he looks - he is getting so tall and what a smile - that chin! I got him a few Tony Hawk shirts and he loves them and wore one on the first day of school. He really likes his teacher this year and I have the feeling this will be the year where he will shine. Loved the little Chipboard stuff with this kit - I covered the bus with paper and make windows with Rock Candy Stickles - on the pencil I used my trusty Crackle Paint...jeez I love that stuff. ACBailey is getting ready to have another event....can't spill the beans, but stay tuned ;)

World Card Making Day!!

Did you know that THIS Saturday October 3rd is World Card Making Day???

Yes, and I researched the history-
It began in 2006 as National Card Making Day. Founded by Paper Crafts magazine to bring card makers together at the beginning of the busiest card-making season of the year, it was first held on October 7, 2006. The initial celebration involved the Paper Crafts magazine audience only; however, due to the positive response it received and the worldwide popularity of card making, the holiday became known as World Card Making Day from then on. It is now in its fourth year, World Card Making Day is celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October. It's a day for the card-making community -- hobbyists, retailers, and manufacturers -- to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card making. So, I went to the Papercrafts site and found this!

World Card Making Day is a holiday especially for card makers around the world to Celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family as well as to kick off (and get a head start on) the holiday card-making season. How many of YOU have already started your Christmas cards???

We here at AC Bailey want IN on the festivities, too! So, we will have another weekend contest here at the AC Bailey forum to celebrate the art of card making!
