Primary Activity Report and some New Toys

Oh my - where do the weekends go.  I find myself diving back into Monday without realizing we had a weekend.  The primary activity was fun - we had a competitive jump roping team come in from out of town and teach us some basic jump roping skills.  Who knew there were competitive jump roping teams?  We learned a lot and gained respect very quickly for their skills and abilities.  I learned a few new tricks to do with a jump rope, but came no where near the teams abilities and grace.  The kids had an absolute blast.  We couldn't seem to get them away from the jump ropes.  The Just Jumping team performed for the Ward tonight and included the primary kids in their show.  The parents can thank me later for wearing them out before bed.  Check out the video on the Just Jumping website media page.  Not a great video, but gives you an idea of some of the things we got to see.  Pretty amazing.

So I got a few new toys in the mail a couple of days ago and took some time over the weekend to be a little creative.  Here are a couple of things I put together.

I am a big CASE'r (copy and share everything)  My biggest struggle I have is coming up with a layout and dsp that will fit in a project.  While I was browsing for some inspiration I came accross Connie Babberts blog.  For those that follow her, she is an amazing paper crafter.  I used the Stamping 411 layout as well as the inspriation from this Post - Wicked Cool Bookmark I came up with this card.    I know I need to come up with a better way to take pictures - I am working on that.

Stamps - Wicked Cool
Paper - basic black, pumpkin pie, rich razzleberry, whisper white, wicked fun dsp
Ink - stazon black, old olive, pumpkin pie, rich razzleberry, sahara sand
Accessories - vintage wallpaper emblssing folder, dotted scallop ribbon border XL scallop circle punch, 1-3/8 circle punch, designer jewels black flourish

One thing I absolutely had to have when I saw the mini catalog and then demonstrated at convention was this great candy wrapper die.  I intend to use it alot!  Didn't it turn out adorably cute and I can fill this with whatever sounds good - how about  some gummy bugs or worms?

Paper - old olive, basic black, wicked fun dsp
Accessories - black gingham ribbon (retired Smiley from candy wrapper bigz die, spooky treats rubons (2009)
