tuesday . . .


** Edited to add a quick apology - I added some new songs the other day to my playlist - obviously I should have listened to them all because one was not the song it advertised but rather some nasty words - so sorry - I deleted it as soon as I realized it!!! **

I'm back - finally popping my head out from the world of sickness - yes, Ryan got sick with a bad head cold & cough - then me, - then Justin. Ryan was home all last week from his preschool but today he is back & I am sipping my tall diet Coke & "netting" it at Barnes & Nobles - happy to be back in "
the routine" :) On top of being sick, this is my busy time for assignments - however, I have still been able to keep the creative juices flowing (thank goodness). Also - we finally have sun today :) It has been so rainy the past few days but the rest of this week is looking up - by Thursday they are forecasting sunny & 65 :) Love it!!!! On to some scrappy :)

Imaginisce's new Live Loud line is just fabulous -lots of fun prints on the papers & as always - TONS of adorable coordinating embellies to play with. I had taken some pics of Ryan all styled up & knew they would be perfect - he had a ball sporting his new Spiderman sunglasses :)

Love these bright, fun colors & those guitars - to die for, right??? Here is a close-up of the title work . . .

Oh & the rub-ons in this collection are just awesome - love the little music notes & this boombox - just too cute!!!

I have also been on the card-making roll these days - first up is quick & simple card using the Imaginisce Lucy Bird line - love the color palette here & isn't this scalloped circle rub-on adorable??

I made this card using the Jillibean Soup Egg Drop & Talk Soup line - such cute & "springy" papers!!! Love the look of the layered journaling sprout & some of JB's new cardsticker stickers - and currently SO addicted to the Fiskers bracket border punch - I think it really "pops" on a project with a quick outline. Also - I actually used some pearl accents - this is pretty "girly" for me & I am not really a "girly" scrapper, since I only have a son & scrap him most of the time. Not gonna lie - totally enjoyed the "girliness" of this :)

My final card is using the Jillibean Soup Minestrone & Soup Staples line - such a fun mix of bright, bold prints!! I LOVE these kraft luggage tags they are putting out right now - so much fun to play with :)

Let's call this last portion of today's post "Temptation Tuesday" - don't you just have to have these . . .

and these . . .

I {heart} them - may have to order . . . head over here if you are "tempted" too :)
Have a fab Tuesday!!
