PINK PAISLEE FUN

I created this layout using the Pink Paislee 365 Degrees collection available at KNK. I used Glimmer Mist to change the color of the Color Me Flowers from Petaloo. Have I mentioned how much I love these!!??!! Th green gingham "ribbon" at the top of the page is actually the background from the ribbon packaging. The card below is also made from the same Pink Paislee line. The Color Me flower here was covered with Smooch Spritz. I love that the smooch provided a very rich true color!

Softball, Baseball, and more Softball oh my


I have been absent from the blogging scene for a little while. So where have I been hiding? well... mainly at the ball diamonds! and a few band parent meetings, school spring concerts and that pretty much explains where you will find me. With Sarah playing on a travel softball team and in band and chorus; Alex playing baseball (altho it looks like he is sitting down on the job a little bit ;) ) and trying to keep him focused on school; and Meagan in band, starting of the dance squad and now softball too I am amazed we even know what day of the week it is. And a splash of yard work and a few graduation parties and that pretty much sums up where we are. The running gets tiring but the kids love what they love and I firmly believe that active kids don't have time to get into trouble! ;)

a few wildflowers for you

I made these cards using the Wildflower Sprigs Stamp set. I love that the set includes several little sayings for my cards and I just love the silhouette of the wildflowers! I was trying to create a sunset-y looking card here so I used chalk in the background. And the ribbon is leftover from a gift packaging I received. (too pretty to throw away)



For this Card I wanted to create a simple card with black on turquoise. The butterfly is a Class A Peel . Be sure to check out these stamps. Just think of the possibilities.
