Hellooooo everyone & a happy Wednesday to you!! I am soooooo excited…between the fabulous spring weather we’ve been having (which I love) and my upcoming trips…I feel GOOD Tomorrow I’m picking Alexa up from school early to head down to my parents, nab my mom and head to Charlottesville, VA for 2 days. On Friday we will spend the day in Charlottesville having fun and then that night I got tickets to see Jason Aldean & Luke Bryan…YEEHAWWWW! I cannot wait…this gal is super excited!! Gonna be an excellent night for sure! Then we leave at 5 am on Saturday morning to get Alexa to her chorus festival competition at 10:30 am LOL…so I will be a bit tuckered out on Saturday. But that’s ok cuz next Friday starts Spring Break for us and we are headed to Hilton Head Island, SC for 8 days…fun in the sun…on the beach…no work…just fun…and more fun..LOL! I always love spending time down in Hilton Head and this year we switched it up..usually we spend 2 weeks at a rented house in Hilton Head. But this summer we are doing 2 weeks in the Hawaiian Islands instead…we had such a great time there last year that we wanted to go to Kauai and Oahu for 2 weeks instead of SC again. I’m looking forward to lots of quality family time, fresh pineapple, maybe some surfing again, hiking, tanning, relaxing and more cuz…my kids have football camp and cheerleading camp this summer so I’m going to enjoy the time I have with them while I can. Cuz’ before you know it August is here and school’s back in session…but of course by then I will be ready for them to be back IN school LOL! And then I will have to FACE the fact that both of my kids will be in highschool…YIKES! Alexa will be a junior and Riley will be a freshman….man before you know it my kids will both be in college…ackkkk! I’m feelin’ old….well I’ve been feelin’ old for awhile…but I can deal with it…yeah I can! Some days I wake up and go Oh Lordy…but then I think…you know what? I’m gonna rock this 90 year old feeling body today and I get my arse up out of bed & deal with it LOL! And the day goes on…….and on…..LOL!

So to celebrate the upcoming Spring Break I figured I’d break out this cutie-pie from Saturated Canary…such cute digis to color…I just love them! This digi is called “CaliGirl”…she is sooo ready for the beach huh? I wish I could rock a bikini this good…if we all could be airbrushed and photoshopped it would be AWESOME yes? LOL…in our dreams….sighhhhh! My friend Tina said she looked like me...hahahaha....that's a good friend for ya...either that or she was brown-nosin' for something huh? LOL!
My papers are a mix of Teresa Collins and some other scraps I had. I started out trying to follow the DeConstructed Sketch this week and it just all went to hell…errr heck….as most of my projects do when I’m trying to follow a sketch…I try so hard and then I just keep moving things around LOL! The circle mats were made with SB’s dies…I cut the outside one and then put a smaller circle die to cut out the middle part…just a fun way to play around with your dies and make ‘em different. A few pearls finish it off—the sentiment is from PTI.
This gal got colored with Copics…I love coloring these girls hair, so much fun! I used E37,E33,E31,E50 on her hair! Her skin is E11 & E00 and some R20 for lips and cheeks! I added Diamond Glaze to her eyes and sunglasses for a nice shine and Stickles to her gold earrings and beach bag.
