Hello everyone--How ya doing today!? We're expecting severe thunderstorms today so I'm praying the power doesn't go out cuz' I've got some videos to get done--yikes! Plus my one dog, Casey HATES storms and literally hides on my lap all day which means getting anything done is impossible, lol! I'm hoping to have Class 4 for the Color Me Creative Classroom done by the end of next week, but with everything else I have to get done for my DT's, the next issue of the magazine and the Dirty Dozen projects done it's a tough one I tell ya! (BTW, stop by the Classroom Site HERE to see the new & awesome design that Veronica of VKDesign Co. created for me--you can grab the new blinkie too if you'd like on my sidebar)!!
For those of you that would like an update on my resident ghostie--well it hasn't been back for a bit. The last appearance was a few weeks ago when I think my stress limits were the highest--I was vacuuming when the lights flicked off and on, my vacuum died out of nowhere and my kitchen clock fell off the wall & shattered. It was so freaky that even my hubby was a lil' bit freaked out---the vacuum never did recover so we had to buy a new one. But some people have said that ghost energy is attracted to negative energy and I certainly had a lot of it the past month & a half--but since we took our trip to NY I haven't had any weird occurrences or visits.
And thought I'd share a pic of my daughter with you since she wasn't in the Cherry Blossom slideshow, hee hee! She'll love this :o) (NOT, but I love to get her riled up just for fun every now & then, hee hee)
-In order to take care of my 2 businesses and my other work more completely I had to (very sadly I might add) drop out of two of my DT's. So I'm no longer with Mo's Digital Pencil or Pink Cat Studio---although you will still see me using plenty of their images. It was hard to step down, but I had to make the decision for my own peace of mind and stress level but I'll miss them both a lot, both Melissa & Mo are wonderful ladies and I'm happy to call them my friends as well! But Pink Cat Studio is looking for new designers HERE and Mo's Dream Team is looking for a guest designer HERE for the month of May--so go apply and show 'em whatcha' got!
I've got a fun project for ya today--at least it was a lot of fun for me to make! You know how I love those Humorous Seniors from I Brake For Stamps and I had to pull one out to use today! I wanted to make a lil' gift pack of cards since it's been awhile since I've done that--so I used a fun and easy tutorial from the Scor-Pal site called "Sassy Stationary Stand" HERE (except I added some fun handles to mine so it looks like a beach tote)!!
"Sunning Sadie" and isn't this ole gal a barrel of fun--love her--you can find a bunch of these fun seniors HERE at I Brake For Stamps (don't forget to use the coupon code "SAVE10SUZANNE" for 10% off your whole order). The papers I used are from Basic Grey's "June Bug" line--they're so bright & cheery, perfect for summer! The sentiment is from PTI's set "A Day at the Beach" and then I've added a few fun buttons to match. This holder holds 4 cards, 2 of each design & the matching envies.
diamond glaze to her drink (lemonade or maybe a cocktail ya think?) and glasse and stickles to her hat and chair! The background navy cs got embossed with the CB folder "swiss dots".
