Sass-i-licious!!

Happy TGIFriday to you all!  I will keep this short and sweet (or try at least, lol) cuz’ I got a house full of hackers—sicklies—and I have a sinus migraine that is ready to blow my head wide open!  Sure love spring but it brings a nasty, ugly visitor with it…yep pollen…and all the fun allergy suffering it brings!  So my eyes can only focus and my brain will only make sense for so long hahaha!

Ok so I leave next Thursday for San Jose, CA to teach (if you want to come to class I have a couple spots open) and I’ve decided to bring Alexa with me…oyyyy…LOL!  Nah her 16th birthday is on the 25th and she’s never really been to the West Coast…we flew over on our way to Maui last year…but never been to Cali.  So I told her she could come…we get in early Thursday and I’m gonna take her shopping and pool sitting lol.  Then on Friday we are meeting up with my friend Patricia (Paper Temptress) and are going to Santa Cruz, driving up to Monterey and Carmel…I’m so excited as I’ve always wanted to drive along the coast and Carmel is tops on my list.  Then I teach on Saturday and on Sunday I’m taking Alexa into San Francisco to do the touristy things I got to do last fall.  So it should be a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to it.  Then we fly home Monday afternoon…she’s been warned (as she well knows) that I get the window and I sleep half way…so she’s not to bug me LOL..no worries she’s used to my flying rules Winking smile  Then the following week is my birthday (May 3rd…but shhh I prefer to think I’m a Cinco de Mayo baby..heehee) and where am I going?  Yup…VEGAS baby!! LOL…oh trouble…trouble!  Naww I’m a good girl and I’m not a gambler so I will see a show and sit by pool and hang with some friends that will be there with me.  I also have a business meeting one day so I will be doing some work…some…but the rest will be play for 2 days…a treat to myself and to see some friends I haven’t seen in a long time.  So I’m excited..then I’ll be home for the weekend to celebrate with my family.  Anyone wanna come to Vegas…come celebrate with me on May 1st?? Girls only though hahahaha!

Alrighty, I am working hard today to finish all my chores & work! Yesterday I did a ton of spring cleaning and I’m sore but its good to get rugs cleaned, baseboards scrubbed and clutter put away but I’m SORE!  So more to do today, then a Zumba class for me & Alexa and Saturday some outside work.  BUT THEN I’M GONNA PLAY…with….my NEW Silhouette Cameo…yep I got one!  From a girl that NEVER used her Criut much….that darn thing would make me so mad & I’d get frustrated I finally just shoved it in my closet.  But all my friends & FB pals raved about their Silhouettes…so I researched it and I must say it appealed to me.  No more cartridges, you buy single images to cut, it cuts like butter, I can cut scanned images, and more.  So I went and ordered it and signed up for 2 online classes…so darn it I bettah love it!  I’ll let you know & if you see me using it on my projects you’ll know I love it LOL!  So Saturday I want to PLAY with it…I’ve warned hubby already hahaha!

Sass-i-Licious!


Today some of the SCACD DT Gals are doing a fun Blog Hop just for fun…just because!  So we all broke out the NEW SCACD Susana Loves Stamp Lines “The Eyes of Beauty & Dreams Collection”.  I’m last on the hop so no more hopping to do, but to start at the beginning go to Danni’s Blog Here!  And make sure to stop by the store blog *HERE* to enter for a Mystery Prize..oohhhh!

Oh also stop by and see all the new, yummy papers SCACD has HERE (oh you will want a few I tell ya!)  Also some new Mixed Media goodies too HERE!

I'm entering this into the following fabulous challenges:

PaperPlay Challenges (wings) 
 Just Keep On Creating (anything goes)
My Time To Craft Challenge (fairies)
Art With No Boundaries (eyes have it) 




I used some beautiful papers by “   “ cuz I love the elegant black/white/yellow patterns!  This sassy gal is called “Sunny Eyes” and she was a ton of fun to color!  I used some dies to create the fun circle mats and then embossed some.  The yellow cs is embossed as well….my motto is “the more elements of texture the bettah”!    So that means some fun feathers…Vegas style baby…yayyy! LOL!  She’s colored with Copics and I added some Diamond Glaze to her eyes and sun pretties! The sentiment is from a PTI set stamped in white ink!

Ok you all have a fabulous weekend---see ya soon!
