Tubby Time!!

Happy Saturday everyone!  Hope you all here in the US (and Canada I think too) are enjoying the 3 day weekend!  I am my parent’s house thru Sunday evening for the holiday weekend since its been ages since we’ve been done for more than a few hours at a time (yes mom I see you nodding your head lol)! The boys are going to see an Air Show at Patuxent Naval Base, if you’ve never seen the Blue Angels fly it is something to remember for sure!  I grew up near the bases including Andrews Air Force Base so I got to see them fly and practice near where we lived and it was always exciting. The girls are going to see Blake Shelton & Chris Young in concert Sunday evening and I CANNOT WAIT!! Whoo hooo you will hear me hollering for sure Winking smile Last night hubby and I were SUPPOSED to have date night to go to dinner and see “The Help” (yes I made him go, lol, cuz it was my fave book from last year) BUT PLANS CHANGED!  I swear my teens are like attached to my hip—worse than when they were small—aren’t teens supposed to NOT wanna be with their parents?  Somehow a party of two turned into a party of 6!! LOL! Each of the kids brought a friend to dinner, the football game and then the movies.  Riley and his friend saw “Planet of the Apes” and the rest of us saw “The Help”---so not really a romantic date night for us!  Hubby actually really enjoyed the movie, the girls cried (I didn’t cuz I’m not much of a crier and I had read the book) but I think the movie was EXCELLENT and definitely stands on its own. There was a man behind us who fell asleep and SNORED thru the whole movie—only a man would do that LOL! Big Kudos to the two fabulous ladies who played Abilene & Minnie—they were fabulous.  And yes I see a bit of myself in Skeeter played by the brilliant Emma Stone (she was fab in Crazy, Stupid, Love too). And if you haven’t read the book or seen the movie—beware of Chocolate Pie—and that’s all I’m saying <giggle>!

Tubby Time!!


Today I’m sharing my project for the Copic Creations Challenge Blog—the theme this time is to use PINK!!  Head on over there to see the challenge DT creations and join in on the fun too!  Well yeah I got carried away a bit with wanting to have a black tub, LOL but I did use pink in the bubbles and bathtub feet Smile  You know when you get an idea in your head and you just GOTTA do it, LOL, yeah that was me!  This reminds me of Alexa when she was little—she loved bubble baths and would stay in them for hours. I have a picture of her with bubbles in her hair (she was about 1.5 yrs old) and she’s holding her Baby Bop toy up and having a conversation with it—I always tell her it will be in her wedding day slideshow, LOL! So cute!

I’m entering this sweetie into the following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge Blog (P for Pastels)
Clearly I Stamp (pattern paper)
Frosted Designs (flourishes)
Inspire Me Fridays (anything goes)
Jelly Park Challenge (die cuts/punches)


The beautiful image is another fabulous one by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD “Peekers 2 Collection” called “Bubble Bath Peeker”—isn’t she adorable!  The papers are from Best Creations “Bird Song” – these paper pads are triple the size of other 6x6 pads and have both double sided and glitter papers, I just love ‘em!  The dies behind the image and swirls are Marianne Designs dies as is the black flower that I mounted on a Prima and topped with a bow, black flower and Bella Bauble. I added a nice coat of Diamond Glaze to the tub to make it shiny! The bath bubbles got a mix of Stickles and Diamond Glaze.  Copics used (my close up pic did not turn out well, sorry, and its 3 am as I type this—eek):  C9 thru C1, R21,R20,R11,R00, E11,E00.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and see you back here on Monday!  Busy week again next week--what's new 'eh LOL! ;)


  1. I adore the way you used Black in this design. Very striking. I am reading "The Help" as I writ. In fact I just read the chocolate pie part. Never trust Mexican Vanilla.

  2. WOW, she's so cute!!! I love the way you color! And yes, in Canada we also have Monday off!

  3. so beautiful Suzanne! gorgeous coloring and I love the way you used the die cuts!

    Thank you so much for sharing @ Inspire Me Fridays, this week!

  4. Your card is just adorable, Suzanne; so precious!! Those "Peeker" stamps are just soooo cute and irresistible.

    I too read The Help and saw the movie; loved both!! It was one of my favorite books and the movie was wonderful, but I cried, even though I knew what was coming. They did a great job with it. Have a wonderful time with your family and enjoy the concert, Whoot Whoot!!!

  7. Darling image and design, Suzanne! Thanks for playing along in CIC35 :D

  8. I'm usually the silent one, show up to read your blog and never leave a comment. With you talking about "the help" I just had to leave this with you....
    I work at a Credit Union and I told my boss (we all saw the movie together) that instead of serving DD munchkins on paydays we could also serve chocolate pie to our "bestest" members....

  9. Aww this is so so cute. I love what you have done...Gorgeous!!

  11. What a cutie-pa- tootie that little tub time girl is! Gorgeous card as always. Glad to hear you like the movie. I am still trying to get to it. Loved the book and I laugh every time someone mentions chocolate pie! Ugh! Gross, but funny.
    Have a great weekend!

  12. Sorry you night out was not so much fun but things like this happen when the kids get bigger they do not think Mom and Dad want to be alone. Love your card seen it on the Copic site. Great job on the bubbles turned out so nice.
    Hugz, P

    I thought the book was soooo good, but know that there is no way I could get my hubby to go with me. now once it comes to DVD he will probably watch it with me. ;) go figure!
