Blog hop

There is a fun blog hop/treasure hunt going on over at Sassy Lil Sketches if you are looking for excuses to surf the web and play with your scrappy goodies it is a fun one! I did this card to go along with one of their two sketches. The peacock is one of my designs and is colored with Copic markers. Looks like I might get a chance to teach some classes locally on the Copics so I am excited about that!

The girls had a super duper second day and today Lori is full time! She is beyond thrilled and I think I might be too. I am looking forward to weekend fun! Oh and the Birthday was a huge success the “surprise” was a BIG surprise and Sara could not have been more pleased. I am not sure who I enjoyed watching more, Sara getting her gift or John giving her the gift, both priceless!

Hugs all!

And They’re Off!

So the first day finally arrived and we dropped off our beautiful Sara right on time to her second grade teacher. She was as cute as a button and looking quite grown up.

Because Lori is going to full day Kindergarten she gets a separate drop off time for the first two days. She was more than ready to say I am good to go Mom! She towered over the little boy next to her. Don’t mess with my girl! She too looked beautiful and very grown up! Yikes how did that happen?!


And finally here is a page I squeezed in late last night! Wonderful sketch from Sassy Lil Sketches again Thanks Ladies!

ICopic

So I found this great new site to feed my Copic passion. Icopic is an online supplier of all things Copic. And can I just say that with one order they have a customer for life! Spectacular service, great range of product including the latest and greatest! So they are running monthly challenges and I thought what a fun way to keep practicing and getting some projects done so here is my card from the second challenge.


The inspiration was primary colors (red, yellow, blue) and cupcakes. I think I got it (he he) had a lot of fun with this! and thanks to a new friend Heather for the way cool Hambly paper that is silk screened with the yellow cupcakes. Here you can see the actual challenge.

We are in countdown mode to skill on the family front. As well as zoning in on Sara’s B-Day so lots of crazy errand running, the girls are excited!

Hugs all!
