I have a NEW BLOG!!

Well, I have been really unhappy with how un-cute (is that a word?) my blog has looked for the past couple of I decided to a new blog, new title and a fresh look!
I hired Holly McCaig to give my blog a make-over...and she did a fab I'm just trying to learn how to do all the fancy stuff!
All my posts from "She's Scrappy" are on the blog...and now for the new blog...Here is the story...

When I was a little girl, my Aunt Karen used to call me "Katie B" (my middle initial is B ) and I always thought that I would have some kind of crafting/art business and that I would name it "Katie Bee" Holly looked for me and that domain name was we came up with "KatieBeeCreative" and so therefore my new blog is named that!!

Notice the 3 little birds?
So, I hope you will come and visit me at KatieBeeCreative and Remember to update your links and feeds!!

Catching my breath.............

OK, I need to take a breath and catch up here....

First of class..enough sneak peeks, the details are ready.

The Queen of Today
@ Cool Scrapbook Stuff
Sunday, April 26th

another peek....(yes, I KNOW that I use these photos a lot...but I can't help it..they are just some of my favorite photos..that's the nice thing about mini' can use odds and ends or use your favorite photos in different books!)

There are kits available, they come with a CD with all the instructions and "how to" photos. I do not sell the kits personally, you need to contact Cool Scrapbook Stuff for them. She will ship them also.


I had the BEST time at Christine's retreat house....seriously, I laughed so hard I thought I might make a puddle on the beautiful wood floors....
I went with Gabrielle (who is a hoot and a pretty darn good mini album maker), Stacy (as sweet as can be and shares my love of old buttons and lace...and a darn beautiful scrapper, she's on the DT for Graphic 45 and now A Million Memories) and Michelle Quinn (gave me my first DT position!), the owner of AMM.

Christine's retreat house is just gorgeous.......every little detail was perfect!! The beds were even SUPER comfy...not that I got much sleep! I would go back every weekend if I could! She was a gracious host and a wonderful friend! She's also super can check out her blog HERE !

I got a long overdue project done for Chloe's (Michelle's daughter) room...a banner that I had saved the paper to make it with for about 3's a lavender and I used the Making Memories crackle/cabbage rose paper from forever ago (it's not even on their site anymore)...but it's a timeless paper so totally not out of style! I also finished a layout, a PP Blog Hop project, a MR blog project and another Pink Paislee altered project...I'll share all of them later, don't worry!

Ok, off to work on my Pink Paislee post for the morning!
