Happy Sunday

Good morning, I hope you are enjoying your long weekend. I have a wonderful day scrapbooking in Red Deer with some lovely ladies from Savvy'n'Sassy. It was so much fun.

Today I have my interpretation from Creatively Yours. Ali has come up with another fabulous sketch. Head over there to see all the DT creations.

This is my littlest on a hike last year. Where he gets the energy I do not know.

Well that's it for today. So far it's sunny out here but I have the feeling it won't stay that way for long. Have a great Sunday, see you next week!

A Pink & Purple Friday


Today I have my challenge from the Town Scrapper. The challenge this week is to use pink and purple on your card. Any of you who know me know that I'm NOT a purple fan. But I found that I could work with the new Basic Grey Green at heart line that has both. So it wasn't so bad, LOL. I used one of the lovely Victoria Case stamps on this. I love them. And of course my Copics

Copics used: E00, E35, E37, E39, E97, R20, R85, R35, R81, V15, V17, W1, W7

Hope you have a great day and have a lovely Mother's Day weekend. We have a very busy weekend planned. I'm looking forward to it all.

This one uses Hero Arts Cling stamps, Savvy'n'Sassy ribbonBasic Grey Kioshi paper and stickers, Copics (B00, B02, B04, V15, V17, YR16, YR18) and Copic Spica pens (Orange, Sand, Melon & Sky Blue)

Creatively Yours Saturday

Happy May Day. And happy birthday to my baby sister (she hates when I call her that, LOL). We have a fun day of pizza and cupcakes planned for her.

Today I have a quick post to share my Creatively Yours layout. When I saw this animated conversation I had to take a picture. My boys (especially the little one) talk with their hands. Must be the Greek in them! So I took a bunch of pictures. They sat there for over an hour just chatting.

Quick post today. Hope you enjoy your May day.
