Burnt BBQ! Oh NO!

Bugaboo!!! Oh, how I love you....I do!  They make such cute images and this was one on their Freebie Friday, I believe!  Can't beat that!  No one at my house would ever burn anything on the grill, but I think it's cute all the same.  :)
It's getting cooler out now (thank God!) and it's finally not too hot to grill out.  You know it's too hot when you can't even stand outside long enough to grill!!!  I love me some fall so it's perfect timing!

Have a great day!

Hi all! 
It's time for....Another challenge at SSDS!!  :)  This week we are doing an easy one....Favorite Color.  Since it's pretty easy you should definetly join in and let me know that you do!  Also....the sponser this week is the one and only Emma at My Creative Time!  She is amazing!!!  And has an awesome giveaway!
I mad a pop up card that I found on YouTube under Stampin with Dawn. I am a little hooked on her...she's very creative and her tutorials are fantastic!  She starts each video with "Hi Stampers!"  So cute!  Anyway, she demo'd how to do this really cool card and I knew I had to make it.  I love PINK and used one of Emma's stamps (the sentiment) and a bugaboo digi.  I am going to give this to my daugher.  That is why there is a's her nickname.  I know, weird, but it works.  I glittered up the front with sparkly embossing powder.  FUN!!  :)

Join us!!!  :)

A zebra Thank you!

Howdy Ho!  I made this cute pop-up card as a Thank you to Kaity's cheer coach.  She is just an all around great person and I was happy making this for her!
The card is made out of an 8x8 piece of cardstock and then I added some triangles cut from 4x4 scraps.  And the cheer squad is loving anything with zebra print so I thought that would be cute.  Thanks to my fave carty - Create A Critter I was able to piece one together lickity split!   

Thanks for looking and have a FAB day!

Rockin' Shoes!! daughter and her friend found a cute pair of shoes that they liked on the internet and I just knew that we could make them! 

I found the shoes at Meijer...they were even on sale!
Then I found the font online!  Check out  good stuff!
Then I used my Princess Cricut and cut vinyl.  I used a different setting than what was recommended for vinyl.  Not sure if it's my vinyl or what but I had pressure on high, speed on medium and deep blade at 4. This kissed the vinyl and allowed me to make a stencil for each of the girls. 
They (I) stuck the vinyl stencil to the shoes and let the girls dab black paint on. 

We did two coats and the 2nd coat we covered with Dazzling Diamonds glitter from SU! and let it dry for a teansy bit because we were impatient.  :)  They turned out marvalous!!!! :)  The girls love them, and so do I! 

Although instead of Party Rock, I think I would have said Rock Party...but what do I know.  The girls say it's a song.  I'll believe them.  :)

Calgon...take me away!

LOL!  It is sure one of those days!  Look how the next picture uploaded.  Ugh.  Oh well.  You get my drift, I'm sure.  I also included a picture of my piggies.  Fun summery color!  I love the flowers they can do.  It amazes me!  One time back in 1994 on my honeymoon in Jamaica (yay!) I had someone there paint a sunset on one nail and then on another a dolphin jumping out of the ocean.  It was BEAUTIFUL!!!  So cool! 
I'm giving this card to a girlfriend for her 40th with a pedicure gift card inside. 
Calgon, take me away!  :)

Bear Bakery

This is a bit what my house looked like last weekend!  We baked up some cookies - homemade even!  :)  It is so less expensive that way...I didn't realize.  I had all of the ingredients already!  WAHOO!  And it was fun to recruit my kiddos to help!  I need to work on my coloring of bears.  They are kinda hard to color. I'll keep practicing....
Have a great day!

who says moms aren't cool?

Who says moms aren't cool???  NOT ME!  I love moms and I just happen to be one! :)  I think this digi is adorable.  I forget who I got these from.  Do you ever do that?!?!  I see something I like and get it and then I don't remeber where I got it when I go to use it.  Ugh.  This turned out cute though, I think.  I like her skirt and again that experssionless face.  FUN! 
Just don't make her give you the evil eye!  LOL!
Enjoy your day...and your mom!  :)

I have a balloon and you don't....

LOL! :)  I love this digi.  I like that she's expressionless and you can make her say whatever you want.  I have a balloon and you don't.  HAHAHA! 
I colored her in with my copics and then added some stickles to make her sparkle 'cause every sassy gal needs some sparkle!
Have a great day!
