Happy Fourth of July in advance!

Happy fourth to all. I created this card for a dear friend who happens to have a b-day on the 4th. If she pops by she’ll spoil her surprise BUT isn’t it always nice to have real mail? The directions and printables for the stars will be up at Get It Scrapped in the next week or so and I was too excited not to share. Loving all the fun possibilities with these markers!

Hope all have an amazing fourth!

New layout and tody

Thought I would share a recent layout. This is inspired from a sketch from Sassy Lil Sketches a fun site I just recently lucky enough to find.
The photos are from last fall so I better get a crakin! I got some catch up to do or I will officially be a year behind He He.

Not much news really getting stuff done. We did a tripo to the library and Sara came directly home and finished one of her three books. Yes a chapter book, I think I know someone like her! Hmmmm….MATT!

Hugs to all!

Here He Is

Well here he is. This is Izzy. One of my latest Copic designs. He was hiding in the card seen below. Vacation and finishing up a title font class got me off track so I am scrambling to get him ready to be posted on Get It Scrapped with directions. Hopefully later this week he will get all done.

So on other family news we are very well. Vacation was wonderful! Time with Mom and Dad is always welcome. We had lots of fun mini adventures and just enough down time and ice cream to put smiles on all of our faces. Since we have been back we have started dance camp, I had my first crown prepped and will return for the permanent in a few weeks, I mowed the lawn, three loads of laundry, yadda, yadda, yadda, we had a four hour play date that was turned into a Rat Party cupcakes, rat puppets and all (stuffed rat friends), and I am sure I will not survive if the entire summer is run at this pace 🙂

All is well as we roast in the humidity.

One more exciting piece of news this week for me. My first “published” page is up at It is an online magazine. Here is the link. You will all recognize the characters on the page John, Matt, Lori, and Sara and maybe a small peek of Amy. You can back out and see the rest of the magazine too. just thought you would all like to see!

Copic #6

I keep cranking them out over at Get It Scrapped! One more Copic tutorial will be going up shortly. This one will be a short a sweet one with this beautiful heart image to play with. I added the leaves and just a touch of patterned paper from my May kit from Scrap This Kit to complete the card. Hmmmm…. who should this one go too?

In other news summer vacation has officially begun! Sara finished school today and Lori was done yesterday. Sara was excited for a break Lori wants none of it! Oh well we have quite the line up of summer activities planned for them so hopefully just enough so i do not here the”I’m bored” too many times :-). let the sprinkler, park, zoo picnics begin!

Oh and just because it is fun to tease my friends…here is my favorite Copic image I have worked on yet! OK so it is not the whole image but there is a LITTLE piece!
