Beautiful Jenelle Birthday!

Good Morning Stampers!!!

Yes it is really me!!!! How are you all doing? I have been wonderful! I took a little break this month from stamping to spend some time with my awesome family! These are the most important people in my life and I am so glad I am able to be with them!!!!

I made this card a few weeks ago for my friend Danika's daughter Jenelle! She turned 1!!!!! What a special special birthday!!!!! I used Lilly at the Beach from Pink Cat Studios! I can not tell you enough how much I love these stamps! I used my Copics to color Jenelle (LILLY) in and added some glitter to her fins. I used the new Burmuda Bay ribbon from Stampin Up which matched PERFECTLY with the Designer paper I picked out. I THINK the paper is from Basic Grey!

Zakary is at his moms this week, but will be back next Sunday for his last full week here before school starts. Our house is going to be so quiet when the school year begins and Zain is going to miss his brother so much! Every other weekend is just not enough time for him to be with us. Thank goodness for school vacations!!! Zak has made so much progress here with us this summer! He is eating vegetables, his manners have improved tremendously! He is swimming like a fish! And so much more!!!! Chris and I are so proud of him!!!! We could really see the light at the end of the tunnel back in June and here we are just 2 short months WOW!!!!!

I am hoping to get some crafting in this week as well!!!! If that sun is shining though I will be outside with Zain!!!!!

Rain is here today so we are getting caught up on some MUCH needed house work!!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful day doing whatever makes you happy!!!!!

Biker Babe

HI Stamping Friends!!!

Last night my mom took the boyZ for a sleep over. Zakary was so excited. He never gets to sleep over there because Chris and I are a little selfish since his time here during the school year is so limited. He is here a lot more in the summer so he was able to go and talked about it for the first 3 days! LOL Chris and I had some adult time last night and it was spectacular!

I made this card using Cindy's Dirty Girl sketch from a couple of weeks ago. The Dirty Girls over on SCS had a whole weekend of challenges. I am hoping to print more off and put them in my book so I can play soon!

On this card I used some of Gina K's digi paper. Can I just say what an awesome idea to whomever thought of that! I love it because usually when I buy a pack of paper I have my favorite sheets....then when it's all gone I have to buy a whole new pack IF I can find it...Digi paper...always have what I want!!!!!

I used the bikabababella which I have been wanting for some time now! I got her when we went for our shopping trip. I also for the little yellow flowers as well. I colored my image with my copics...duh hahaha

Off to get the two Z's today. Hoping the weather is nice enough for Chris and I to join them in a quick swim before heading back home. I love the pool on hot sunny days!!!!

Have a wonderful day doing whatever makes you happy!!!!

Inky Impressions 2nd Design Team Call

Hi Stamping Friends!!!!

Yes you read the title correctly, I am apply to be on a Design Team for Inky Impressions! I do not have any of their stamps.....YET and I actually just heard of the company and let me tell you the stamps are SO CUTE!!!!! Go check out the store and let me know what you think!!! My favorite is Lili's Secret and UH OH Spaghettio O's. How cute would those 2 stamps would be on a card!!!!! I can not wait to place my order!!!!!!

In order to apply for the DT (Design Team) I had to post one card and one non-card project that displays coloring. I used my Sarah Kay stamp and used my Copics on Gina K paper! The DSP is some VERY old SU paper that I thought went well with this image!!!! I loved coloring this image in!!!!

I sat at dinner tonight with Chris and the boyZ, I was so excited to let them know I would be in my stamp room for a "real" reason tonight. I started telling him about the deadline, this that and other things....he then looked at me with horror in his eyes and said "Kylah today is the 3rd" So here I am at the last minute posting to my blog. I must have been having way too much fun with the family the past few days....Really where did July go?

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 hope you have a wonderful day doing whatever makes you happy....I know I have been!!!!!
