Good morning ladies! Hope your week is gearing up well--my morning has been much better than yesterday (at least so far--lol)! I am only posting 1 "eye candy" today, because I'm out of the house for most of the day with the kids, so I won't get to be in my craftin' zone till tonight :(
I had pulled out my stash of Magnolias the other day, seeing that I had forgot how many I had-lol and found this little cutie in there and not inked up yet! I wanted to go w/ a different color palette for her than the softer colors I usually use w/ the Magnolia stamps. Ya know I love my DCWV paper pads--I think I have them all (and the 2 new ones are on order-hehe). This paper is from the "All Dressed Up Stack" (love it) & it has lots of black and bold prints in it. My most favorite color in the whole world is black--I just love it. I've been using it more lately, because I really love the drama and contrast of it with other colors--of course black goes w/ everything!This one is colored w/ my Copics and I added stickles and some highlights w/ my Inkssentials pen (by Ranger). The sentiment is from Gina K's "Kindred Greetings for Him"--I picked "You Rock" cuz' I thought she had a little bit of rocker edge goin' on w/ her colors--lol! The layout I used is from Taylor's blog "Taylored Expressions" & its from last Friday's Cupcake Challenge (I'm a little late w/ my entry-haha)! The brads are from Making Memories and their circle backs are from Club Scrap, & the flowers are from Prima. Hope you likee it! Me likee it--lol!
The second picture is of my son, Riley--he is now a semi-high red belt, just one step away from getting his black belt! He was so proud to have passed his last test--it was 2 1/2 hrs long! His black belt test will be in about 6-7 months and its 5 hrs long w/ an essay test too--but he really loves it! Pretty soon my baby will be taller than me (he's 10 now) and won't wanna hang w/ his momma, but for right now he still thinks I'm cool-lol!
Hope ya have a good one!
