My Throwback Thursday...

I've told you before that I haven't got any throwback pictures of Sharon stamping as a child but I do have this, for me, which is a throwback to about nine, ten years ago...

This is BBSS - Before Buffalo Stamps and Stuff. You scrapbookers remember Creating Keepsakes and their universities? Well I went to two in total and this is a piece I did for Alumni CKU? I joined a 'sorority' and our theme was Scrapbook Mafia, which probably cost us points in the competition because the judges didn't understand our point of reference. Big and Rich, country music biggies at the time, said they belonged to the 'Cowboy Mafia' so we decided we'd be the Scrapbook Mafia. One of the girls in the group had an old guitar case and she sent it to me and I 'decorated' it. We had cowboy hats and hay bales on our table with the guitar case on top, jeans, cowboy boots, mini straw hats as name tags. It was awesome! But nobody got it! After the judging many told us we were robbed (the worst cowboy analogy), but I still have the case propped up in our family room and I still have my decorated hat. I also still Facebook with two of my sorority sisters!

On to what's new!
Mama Elephant! Stamps and dies. These have been flying off the hooks!
