For my non-card project I made a photo album for the boyZ! They have been playing ball together outside and I have captured some great moments. I wanted somewhere to display them all. I used Tyler the jock from Bella. I also colored him with my Copics on Gina K paper (which I need more of ASAP!!!!!) I love the little clips from Stampin Up. It just added a little something to the project. I also distressed around Tyler and the layering colors. I usually don't like that look but on this project it just fits!
I want to thank everyone at Inky Impressions for this wonderful opportunity! I also would like to wish everyone that tried out GOOD LUCK...I have gone to your blogs and you all ROCK!!!!

I had such a beautiful image of this card in my head and "THIS" is what came out. So not what I wasthinking about. I made this for my grandmother's birthday.
I used a sketch from SCS and used Gina K stamps. I then added black chunky glitter to the center of the flowers. BIG MISTAKE!!!! I was so upset after doing this and Zakary was working on a project next to me....he said Kylah I really like the glitter and I think Mum will too....plus you made it that will make her love it. That really touched me....I have been trying to make him understand how important handmade gifts are and how they are made with so much LOVE....I think he is getting it!!!!!!
Well I am off to watch a little TV before heading to bed! I hope you all have so much fun doing what you LOVE!

What a wonderful day I had today!!!! I spent most of the day working with Eleanor and then came home to all 3 of my boyZ! We had a fun afternoon in the backyard with the pool and water guns! Tonight I started a new "training" program with my friend Cindy (you may have heard of her one happy stamper ;o) ) We are starting walking/running intervals and tonight we hit the cemetery. We had a GREAT workout and I feel wonderful! I am so excited to do it again on Sunday!
I am also so excited about this card!!! I won Lauren Meaders contest a few weeks ago and my prize came in the mail from Pink Cat Studio the other day! I couldn't wait to ink up Billy! This image with the frog on his head is just so cute!!!! I used the sketch from Mojo Monday paired with some new designer paper from my shopping trip last week! I colored Billy with my copics ;o)
Speaking of my trip I forgot to mention that I met a great Blogger!!!!! Donna-Marie ROCKS! She works at Wholly Scaps in North Hampton, NH. This was our last stop on our shopping trip and the store was GREAT!!! Donna-Marie really knows her stuff!!!! Check out her blog and make sure you say HI!!!!!!
Lots to do tonight! I have a workshop tomorrow evening....maybe I should figure out what we are doing ;o) Have a wonderful night!

Oh my goodness where does time go? So much has been going on here at the Lent/Marro household these days. I love planning little outings with t he boyZ or just playing outside in the back yard. We bought a little $10.00 blow up pool (which I had to blow up with all my own air because Chris was at work, with the pump in his car, and Zain WANTED to swim!). We have been enjoying the pool and the SUN. I am soooo grateful for all the family time we have been able to have this summer! I LOVE that Zakary is with us this summer!
I made this card LAST month for my SU Club swap. I needed a quick card and one that I could mass produce very quickly! I wanted to use new IN colors! I used my Stampamagig so everything lined up very well! It is a bright card which I LOVE! I also used my SU textured plates in the Big Shot. I bought them 6 months ago and this is the first time I have used them BUT I had to have them LOL!
I hope you all have fun doing whatever it is that makes you HAPPY!!!!

Hi Stamping Friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a nice start to your work week! I was able to take a nice walk with my friend Avril today. Just her and I no kids. We walked for about an hour and a half. It was so nice! I can't wait to go again on Wednesday!
I made this card a few weeks ago for Zain's friend Evan. He had to have tubes put in his ears :( Poor little guy. Zain and I walked to his house and left this on his porch.
Colored my Gina K image with Copic makers. LOVE GINA K stamps! LOVE MY COPICS!!! OHHH and NEW SU colors....totally forgot the name of them right now....it will come to me soon I hope LOL!
I am going on a Scrapbook/Stamp Store trip next Monday and I am soooo excited. We are going to travel to a bunch of different stores in NH. WAHOO!!!! I LOVE ordering online but there is something about touching and feeling the product before you buy....then having it in your hands right then and there ;o)
Well I am having a bit of a creativity block tonight so I am going to attempt to make a card.....Wish me luck!
Have a great time doing whatever makes you happy!

HI Stamping Friends!
I have been having so much fun playing all of the challenges over at StampTV this week! I used the Gina K stamp set Out West designed by Theresa Momber. This set is AMAZING!!!! I actually borrowed it but I HAVE to own it! If you know anyone who loves horses this is the perfect set for them!!!! I used the sketch challenge they had last week :) What a FUN FUN sketch!
I colored these wonderful images in with my Copic sketch markers!
I broke out some retired SU designer paper and old IN colors. It felt so good to use these colors again :) I wish I had more :)
Friday I have my 10 year reunion from igh school, as I sit here and write that I find it very hard to believe! TEN YEARS....WOW it feels like just a few years ago that I graduated. It will be nice to see some of my old friends that I have not seen in a long time :)
Off finish up the dishes

OH MY GOODNESS we had some BEAUTIFUL weather in NH today! I was outside ALL day! We had a birthday party for Miss Ella today and I decided to make her card 15 minutes before having to leave. YIKES...that is how nice it was outside I didn't want to come in! I used Lauren's Color Challenge for this card and I was happy with the look of it! I would have added more accessories if I had time. My girl friends and I swapped some images last week and I got this Bella Image for Cindy Lawrence. It is oh so cute. I may need to stamp it a few more times next time I see her :) I was going to make another card just like this (plus more accessories) but I was coloring her while I was watching Grey's on the DVR and I was crying so hard that I messed it all up. BOO HOO!!!! So in the trash it went. Oh and I used my very last piece of Baja Blue ribbon....I love these SU IN colors and I am very sad they are going away in a short while! I am going to have to stock up!

Now my girl card not as excited about. It took me forever to find some DSP that I looked and I couldn't find 2 different ones that matched well....I made 6 of these cards and kept the boo boo card for myself forgetting to take a picture of the "good" ones. The "GOOD" cards didn't have an empty space at the bottom. As I went to stamp this card the phone rang and my placement was just all wrong...BUT I didn't want to waste it! I cut the butterfly out and used some stickles and Crystal Effect...oh so shiny and pretty IRL
Well that is it for me today...off to a playdate that I am already late for because it took Zain forever to fall asleep at nap time. He really needs his naps too or he is CRANKY. We are going to dinner with friends tonight :) That always makes me happy.
Have a wonderful night and make sure you check out Lauren's blog on Saturdays for her fun Challenges. ALL NEW IN MAY!!!! (what am I talking about check her blog EVERYDAY!)
