Happy, Happy Friday ---- YAY --- to you all! I love Fridays and Saturdays don’t you? I am sore, sore, sore my friends today LOL---I stamped over 1800 images yesterday for my classes in Canada next week and my fingers can barely type—owwieeee! Then I went and kicked arse…uummmm excuse me….kickboxed stress outta my system last night and biked 10 miles. So yep every lil’ bit of me hurts today so I’m working for awhile, picking girls up from cheer practice & then off to get a pedicure so I can have my legs massaged LOL! But gotta keep that jiggly stuff at bay and I must say I do enjoy kicking things hee hee---gets that frustration all out. I leave on Sunday for my grandma’s house with my son and I won’t have internet for 5 days—YIKES—that’s killer to me LOL but I’m gonna try and relax and just chill. Can you believe my grandma is 90—she can run circles around me still and cooks EVERYTHING from scratch (yes I’m bringing my running shoes to ward off weight gain from all those yummy biscuits lol)! I tease hubby that if my grandma is still running at 200 mph at age 90 he better get prepared cuz’ he thinks I move wayyyy too fast now—guess there’s no stopping me now hee hee! Riley loves visiting up there with my Uncle especially so he can be a “real” country boy and fish, 3wheel around and tinker with stuff LOL. I just like to chill for a “bit” as its not in my nature to sit very long but its good to not have any work to do for a few days before my classes with all those CRAZY Canadians (JK—I love them though, they are fabulous and fun to hang out with). All of my classes are sold out so it will be a FULL house there and I’m excited to hang out with a bunch of my friends. If I were to go to jail it would definitely be with this crew (ahem…Andi, Kimmie, Sheila, Vicki LOL) so don’t be alarmed if you hear I have been ARRESTED ok---ITS ALL THEIR FAULT LMBO! You know what they say ‘eh? (my fave quote below)
“A friend is someone who will bail you out of jail. Nah no worries we have fun but we don’t do that KINDA stuff LOL!
A best friend is the one sitting next to you saying "boy was that fun."

I must say that I do ADORE these Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Peekers more than anything else I’ve inked up lately—total beauty and innocence in each one! And I love, love how this turned out (sounds bad but I really do love it lol)! If you haven’t seen these “Peekers 2” then you need to check them all out HERE—they are fabulous! This card was made for my Dare To Get Dirty Challenge that is running this week thru Monday over at Splitcoast Stampers HERE (you have to be a fan club member to join—but you can find details on how to join here). The Dirty Dozen Alumni do this every year—lots of great challenges and prizes for the fan club members—always fun! I’d love to see you all take a whirl with my challenge (hint: it’s a bit “sketchy” lol).
My papers are a mix of papers from Basic Grey and My Minds Eye. I love the color combo of buttery yellow, burnt orange and dk brown—so fallicious! The leaf swirlies are from Marianne Designs dies (yes I’m addicted and I don’t care hee hee). The flowers are all by Prima except for the dk brown ones which I made with a SU flower punch.
And of course this cutie was colored with Copics Y26,Y23,Y21/Colorless Blender / E44,E43,E42,E41/ E37,E35,YR23,E50 / YR18,YR12,YR00 / YG67,YG25,YG03,G20. Then I added some Stickles to the flowers, her sandals and sash. I used B000 to create the blue sky around the fence along with my Colorless Blender.
Now you all have a fabulous weekend---I will have some posts next week for you while I’m gone so I hope you stop by and visit. And as always you can follow my travel adventures on Facebook while I’m away See ya!
