RRRRAnimal Time!!

Howdy friends and a Happy Friday to you all! Wow, we were smoking up the Color Me Creative Classroom last night with our rockin' party--thought the site might crash, lol! It was FAST-paced fun and a total blast--thanks to all the gals who came last night and hope you had fun! I'm resting my fingers today because I typed so much I got cramps, hee hee! Over 60 gals made it to the party and won lots of fabulous prizes--if you haven't joined the site or the CMC Challenge Group yet, whaddya waiting for? LOL--come on it's free and you can win prizes, meet friends and learn stuff too!!

I am finishing editing & shooting videos today that will be shared with you all next week (one today tho!) and then I'm taking some of the weekend off to relax a bit and get some reading done and maybe some pool lounging.  It's super sunny here which I'm loving and I have no sports practices to run kids to today!  My daughter is off to the Outer Banks until Monday with a friend so it's just the 3 of us.  We're thinking about going to our club on Saturday night for Movie Night Under the Stars--Raiders of the Lost Ark is playing and we told Riley he could bring a friend.  We LOVE Indiana Jones movies here so it should be fun!!  A weekend full of good weather and rest I hope is called for me thinks, both for me and for all of you too!


-Last day to enter my blog candy HERE!

-Keep up to date on where the Color Me Creative "On the Road" will be at !!  New Pre-Registrations are up for Michigan!!  Also tentative pre-registrations are up for Buffalo, NY, Charlotte, NC, Wilmington, DE and Port St. Lucie, FL!  Go pay your $5 fee to hold your seat and to see if we can get enough students in each class to formally schedule it!!  And TELL YOUR FRIENDS :) I thank ya for that!

Zebra Bling!!

Today I have a super fun project to share with you featuring my favorite animal print EVER!!  Does it look like my blog or what?  LOL!  I just love it, hee hee!  How did I do it--check my video below to see exact instructions!

This is also for the Try It Out Thursday Challenge #81 this week!  It's been awhile since I've been able to participate in this challenge and I apologize for that--I've had tons of things going on and just wasn't able to get my challenge "on", LOL!  But I'm back and I'm super excited to share my card with you today! 

I FINALLY got to play with that awesome Dreamweaver Paste (in translucent) and I was thrilled to death that it was so EASY and FUN to use.  I paired it up with this fun zebra print stencil by Crafter's Workshop HERE--you spread a thin layer of this paste on like icing a cake, peel your stencil up and let it dry.  Before the paste dried I added some bling to it with two colors of Martha Stewart glitter (tinsel glitter and extra fine--which is on SALE HERE).  I did my stencil right on my black cardstock so I'd still have those awesome zebra stripes.  The bling swirls are by Zva Creative and then I layered a few fun Prima flowers and topped them off with rhinestones. The sentiment is by PTI that I cut out with my SB's nestabilities "Labels 9" (on SALE 25% off HERE)--I traced the outline of the die onto my cardstock with my black Copic Spica pen for an extra frame and bit of sparkle.

Hope you enjoyed this fun animal print bling-a-rama as much as I did!  Try out some of these new products--they're EASY, FUN and FABULOUS and you won't be disappointed!

  7. I love following your blog. You are so creative and do wonderful work. Have you thought of traveling to northern CA? (the best part of our state) I spoke to the shop I take classes at tonight and told them about your traveling and offering classes. The gal that teaches Copic classes was very excited to hear this info. The name of the store is "Memories Live On" in Cupertino, you would fly into San Jose, .......... store's phone number (408) 446-9901 ........ e mail .... Sure am hoping you will consider coming to CA.

  8. Love all the bling. Simple but elegant - always love black and white.
