Happy TGIFriday my friends! UGH--I am NOT an early morning bird at all and I am typing this up at 5:30 am at Dulles airport waiting for my flight to Kansas City. NO sing-a-longs this morning LOL. I plan on sleeping to Chicago and sleeping again to Kansas, got my blankie & pillow all ready to go! I like to fly early cuz' the airports are quiet and hopefully the pilots are fresh KWIM (know what I mean). And lets hope no space trash interferes with my travel--it would be just like the darn universe to throw that at me while I'm traveling. I can see it now---actually I won't see it cuz' I will be sleeping hee hee. Looking forward to classes and this is my first time to Kansas---oh hey maybe the Scarecrow & Tin Man will show up LOL (yep I've always been a huge Wizard of Oz fan). I've got lots of friends I'm meeting and my pal Tina (crazy banana that she is) is rooming with me tomorrow night---tonight I'm going to dinner with some new friends and then hopefully an early bedtime for me as we have a full house both tomorrow & Sunday for classes. I've been told to be on my best game err..... behavior LOL so I gotta get some sleep for that to happen LOL! I fly home late Monday night--not sure how I booked a 6:30 pm flight but I must have been asleep when I did that, so I get home at 11:30 pm that night ugh!
Ok I hope you have a fabulous weekend! If you are coming to classes, be prepared for fun, some dancing and lots of coloring :) Hubby & kids are off to the Frederick Fair in MD since its the last day tomorrow--they always go every year. I go on occasion but I got fair-ed out when the kids were small and even though its a nice big fair I can skip it every now and then (as long as they bring me home an Amish made Whoopie Pie LOL).
-If you wanna come take a Copic class or two with me you can see the rest of my fall schedule at www.cmcroad.com -- upcoming locations are Ohio, Chicago, San Jose CA, & Texas. Then I am taking a break from mid November thru mid January from traveling so I can rest (lol) and gear up for the holidays. But next year I am planning on hitting Vancouver, San Diego, Anaheim, Seattle & more!! Stay tuned!
Today I'm sharing a project with you featuring those super-cute Sylvia Zet stamps for SCACD. This cutie is called "Hope" and I have to tell you these gals are soooo much fun to color and their faces are too cute! I needed some lively colors so I chose these fun prints from an older DCWV paper pad that I had bought ages ago and never used (ha ha story of my life 'eh).
Pretty simple layout and I used some of my new Cherry Lynn Designs dies (read more about them in the previous post) to layer my cute sparkly Prima flowers on top of -- the dies are called "Tropical Leaves" I believe. These dies cut FABULOUSLY--one pass thru my Cuttlebug and they cut all the way thru each time, no shims or 2nd passes needed. A few of the new Prima rhinestones finish off the card with sparkle.
And yep she's colored with Copics of course -- RV14,RV13,RV10 / Y23,Y21,Y11, YR23,Y15 / E11,E00 / E25,E50,E31 / C3,C1,C00 / E19,E18,E15,E11,E50 for hair. I added Diamond Glaze to the hope chest's lock, all the berries and to her eyes for shine. Some Stickles to her wings and shoes of course for more sparkle.
Did any of you have hope chests when you were growing up? My sister did and she filled it with stuff for her wedding and house but I never did---I was ANTI-marriage (LOL) and anti-housewife so I didn't want to do that icky. Then I got married and had kids early and did the housewife thing for 13 years---see you never know how life will turn out even with the best laid plans. But that was the right path for me, I live with no regrets and am happy with my life even with all the crazy twists and turns. I believe in always looking forward and never backwards--whats the point really? But I think the idea of hope chests is cute but possibly outdated? Not sure Alexa would like to have one either LOL!
Ok have a great weekend & pray no space trash hits me or anyone else this weekend ;) LOL!
