Okay - not the best pics of me (still carrying half of this baby weight people!!!), but I love that they are pics I all of us - being silly - I rarely get family pics so I couldn't resist sharing :) Hanging in over here - Nicholas is doing well - growing, growing, growing - he is super long & we have already started into the 9 month clothes (just a reminder - he isn't even 2 months yet - ahhhhh!!!). Ryan is good - definitely growing up too fast though. The things he says these days make me feel like I am back teaching in my middle school classroom sometimes :) Doing quite a bit of scrapping myself & have lots to share in the upcoming weeks :) For today . . .
a fun little altered project for Pretty Little Studio - I found these wood garden picks at Michael's & couldn't wait to cover them with some bright, cheery paper. The Scrumdidlyumptious line from PLS was perfect!!! Check them out . . .
Here is a quick close-up - I think I have finally mastered the accordion flower - of course only to find Sizzix dies at my local scrapbook store that could practically do all the work for me :)
Make sure to head on over the Pretty Little Studio shop - the new collection Hopscotch has been revealed & it is CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!!!! Here is a peek at this adorable collection . . .
Melissa is currently running a special on shipping . . .
Also - you still have until the 10th to comment for a chance at the BIG Hopscotch collection giveaway - check it out HERE :)
Oh & a new sketch challenge!!! I provided this month's sketch for Blue Moon Scrapbooking . . .
And here's my take on it - full of American Craft's Hello Sunshine goodness . . .
A quick close-up on the border - I am super proud I was able to step out of my comfort zone & do some stamping. I fell in love with the American Crafts stamp set provided in my DT kit - I always tell Ryan he is my sunshine so this stamp was just perfect!!!
Oh and guess what - the prize for one lucky winner . . . $40 to spend at the Blue Moon Scrapbooking store!!!!! Check out all the details HERE :)
Before I go - just wanted to leave you with a song from this AMAZING artist . . . so talented :)
Thank you for all your comments - I love reading them (not to mention some of you have been giving me great ideas & advice on my new mommy of 2 life) :)
Couldn't leave without a few pics of the little one :)
Hope all of you are well & be back soon with more . . .
