Spicery Luncheon for Moms Birthday

So I gave Mom the choice of where to have her lunch for her birthday, and
she decided the Spicery it is!!!
The Spicery is an old tea house restaurant located in Downtown Glendale. We have spent wonderful
breakfasts and lunches there when I was in high school, and I had my wedding breakfast there with all my bridesmaids..
Love this place:)
This is Martha the owner who worked it when I got married. She later sold it, and then she bought it back and reopened it this past year.. looks and tastes as great as it did back then!!

Our table by the window:)

The view outside our window!! Beautiful and peaceful!!
This is the most amazing Chicken salad, and Marthas famous rolls( which you can get the recipe for if you visit)

One of the dining areas with Christmas tree waiting to celebrate the Holidays..
They offer Christmas Dinners on Saturday nights with all the trimmings.

Take your family!!

Call.. Make your reservations today!!

Chocolate Gratitude

This was one of the Stamp Camp projects. Inside it holds 4 Hershey Nuggets of Chocolate love:)
This box was made using Stampin'UP!s Matchbox Die for the Big Shot. I used the Spice Cake paper ( boy , am I gonna miss this paper when its gone:(   )  The tag also comes with the die, and is sprayed with Frosted Shimmer paint and alcohol.
The flower is made from 6 Large Scallop Circle punches, and you just put a brad in the middle and pull each layer all the way up and crinkle till it is a tight form. Then you pull apart slightly till you like how it looks. 
Here you can see the flower better, but you can't see how the whole box has been sprayed with the homemade glimmer spray.. Love it, and would make a great party favor, or small gift of gratitude to someone special..

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving time with your family!!

Male Scrapbook Layout

The girls have been after me to design a couple of pages that can be used for a dude:) This is just one side of a double layout, as I can't seem to find the other side..  The thought was that the other side was a larger 8X8 frame so that you could do one big picture of the event, and then on this side....

have a space to place smaller pictures and journal of the same event. This layout used SU. Well Worn Designer Series Paper, and layered on Night of Navy Cardstock.

Stamp Set is Grunge Rock, and I stamped the argle type stamp on the back then layered with the DSP. I also used the button embosslite, mini closepins, brads,and scalloped edge punch for added visual fun!!

Hope you like,

If you have any questions, or would like to order anything you see please call me @ 480-209-9866 or you can check out my website with SU @ http://www.chipboardqueen.stampinup.net/

Thanks ,

Hope you have a great Weekend!!

Stamp Camp Sweetness

I actually got this idea from a Fall event with Diann Gibbs, and I loved the ability to be able to put a gift card in the back and to hang on the tree!! So Sweet!!

I used Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and Whisper White CS. Cut out Cherry Cobbler with the Large Scallop Die, Then cut the Old Olive out and cut in half. I used the Red Tape to secure it to the back leaving a pocket for the card.
The front uses the Letters to Santa paper, and small scallop punch. I stamped the To-From image and attached to the small scallop circle which I also used the Mat Stack and piercer to make holes around the edges:)
Hope you enjoyed!! Super easy!
