Splish, Splash I was takin’ a Bath!!

Happy Day to you or night or weekend….whatever it shall be for you!!  I am in CRAZED mode for the next couple of days till we leave on Friday afternnon…projects to finish up, laundry to do, errands to run and bags to pack.  Why?? Cuz’ we are leaving Friday for a week in Hilton Head Island, SC for Spring Break…and as usual..I have to pack for everyone and get the house ready to leave..find people for the animals…and on & on & on LOL!  So yup I gots lots to do…then the family will come and get in the car and say “let’s go” like the darn truck done packed itself…you feelin’ me?  LOL..yes its terrible but I am always the vacation planner, packer and doer…every darn time…but truth be told if I left it up to hubby I’d be wearing the same shorts and undies all week and he woulda left half my stuff at home…not good.  So for the 18th year in a row I will take the reins and get us where we need to go…sigh..even if I lose a few hairs and feel like I may have a heart attack at any moment.  That’s what vacation is for ‘eh? Winking smile  But yeah I will have a few posts while I’m gone so no worries…I got my projects done in time hee hee and I will be posting pictures and stuffs for ya!

And hey, hey, hey….do NOT forgot that Sunday, April 1st is the ACM Awards…that’s the Academy of Country Music Awards…it’s a FABULOUS time of year folks…well for us country folks!  I am tivoing it but we will be watching it LIVE as well…I already informed the hubby that we must be planted in front of the TV that I can siiiiiing along and screammmmmmm along with the singers LOL!  I will also be on Facebook and Twitter…writing and noting my opinions on everything…wardrobe, looks, songs, speeches, etc…in case you are interested in any of my ramblin’ thoughts LOL!  And YES YES Luke Bryan is performing along with my Tim McGraw, Zac Brown Band and more….mmmmhmmmm Luke-y will be on my TV..yes indeedy hahaha!


-SCACD has a new release on Friday…sneak peeks are up on the STORE BLOG and you can enter for the yummy Blog Candy while you are there!

-For those that want to come see me and take my Copic classes (including a NEW ‘All About Hair’ Class) this fall in Ontario…I will be at the Younique Retreats in Guelph and registration is up now at !


Splish, Splash!!

 Oh yeah…I hear y’all singing…sing it with me now…”Splish, Splash I was takin’ a bath..on about a Saturday night….a rub-a-dub relaxin’ in the tub” (by Bobby Darin)!  How can you NOT sing that song…and don’t blame me if you cannot get it out of your head today hee hee!  Anywho, I was singing it while making this bubbly card using some super sweet Magnolia Stamps from the new Princes & Princesses Collection at Magnolia-licious My kids loved taking bubble baths, super messy-sudsy bubble baths in our deep jacuzzi tub when they were little.  I would play music and they would sing and play for a long time…they loved it…however the mess, well that’s no fun hahaha!

I'm entering this into the following fab challenges:

I used the cute “Tilda in Bath Cap” and “Bathtub” (you can also get these in mini stamps form here) on my project today.  My papers were scrap but the ducky paper is from Magnolia for this collection and available at Magnolia-licious HERE.  I wanted to keep a bubbly feeling throughout so I used all circles, matted with circles and also cut circles from transparency sheets and then embossed them.  After embossing with a dotted folder I added some stardust Stickles to a few of the dots for sparkle.

The “SPLASH” was created using my Slice machine – I hadn’t used it in over a year, so I was pretty proud of myself hahaha!  I’ve got to use it more often but I sponged the letters and then added Stickles to every-other letter.  The bubbles were created with a mix of white Liquid Applique (puffed up), white Bella Baubles and Diamond Glaze..a perfect mixture for a sudsy bath feeling!  Tilda was colored with Copics and then the tub got a hefty coating of Diamond Glaze for shine.  That cute lil’ ducky next to Tilda…I cut it out of the patterned paper and coated it with Diamond Glaze and popped it up with dimensionals.

I’ll see you back here on Friday with a project for the NEW SCACD Release!  Have a Goodie!
