Boot Scootin’ Boogie!

Happy TGIFriday everyone!  How are you all doing this week?  I am off to today with Alexa to go pick up my mom 2 hours south of me, then head to Virginia Beach for the night to see……………wait for it……………wait………….YEP……….my country boyfriend…………….LUKE BRYAN and Jason Aldean LMBO!!  We are spending the night there and having lunch at the beach tomorrow and then head home.  I’m sooooooooo looking forward to seeing my Lukey for the 5th time this year bwahahahaha…I’m such a groupie….or stalker depending on your view. But man they put on a good show and I’m so looking forward to seeing it again.  I’m no where near up to my usual 200% snuff so no dancing or jumping for this gal but I will be singing LOUD and clapping and screaming of course LOL.  I don’t want to injure myself more than I already am….and YES for those who know I wear heels 99% of the time everywhere, don’t worry I’ll be in flats!  YES FLATS…I know hard to believe but check out the FLATS that I’m gonna be in…………yeah got my new cowgirl boots baby (see below) and I’m super excited to break them in!! Whooot! Yeehawwww! hahahaha!  So I’ll be ready to get my cowgirl boot scootin’ boogie on! 


My mom even made us a cheesecake to eat after the show cuz we are always thirsty and have the munchies and my mom makes the BEST baked goods you have EVER had in your life (lemon meringue pie is my fave).  I’m not a baker, didn’t get that gene although I can do it but I don’t enjoy it….I love to cook though but I’m not a recipe girl.  I prefer to make my own recipes and lead by taste, no measuring….so I do love that.  Alexa is usually my sous chef these days although I sure could use a kitchen-cleaner-upper, that’d be a luxury!  We love all the Food Network shows especially Chopped, Restaurant Impossible and Diners, Dives and Drive-Ins!  My family loves, loves good food…in another life perhaps I’d be a professional foodie LOL!  Although my body doesn’t like food much due to Crohns I still like to taste things even if I never get to finish anything…such a bummer but oh well!

Then Sunday we will finish school shopping cuz’ kiddos go back to school on Monday….whoooooohoooooooooooo…..oooops did I say that out loud? LOL!  I love my teens but I also like a quiet house during the day and my house is NEVER quiet when they are around along with their friends.  And lately I’ve just been running stinky, sweaty boys back & forth to practice twice a day…omgosh I’m so ready for school.  But hard to believe Alexa is a junior and Riley is a freshman.  I’m NOT a crier but the past few weeks I’ve HAD A LOT going on and been pushed to my outer limits so I have found myself crying in random spurts…really weird and it better stop cuz’ I no likey KWIM!  So Riley and his pals are walking out of orientation yesterday and I’m in truck waiting for them, and I start bawling….like really BAWLING at seeing them all walk out of the highschool.  Its just hard to comprehend that my BABY is 6’3 and in highschool…I’m struggling.  Riley gets in front seat and his buddies climb in back….he looks at me and goes “what in the heck is wrong with you?  are you ok?” and I’m like yeah I’m fine, just hard to see you all looking so BIG!  He looks at his friends and goes “OMGod girls are so weird…mom you really are losing it!” LOL  But I’ll  be ok, just gotta get thru this stuff and move forward, ugh!

A Bundled Up Cutie!

Today I’m sharing a lil’ cutie called “All Bundled Up“ from SCACD’s Elisabeth Bell’s Sampler #7  line!  She’s perfect for the upcoming winter and holiday season!  I chose to use her for a fun wintry card but she’d sure look cute all done up in holiday colors.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

I used some new yummy papers from MME 6x6 Designs in Meadow (10% 0ff)The scrolly pendant accents were done with a new Memory Box die “Quinn Flourish” that I just love!  I distressed my papers with my Zutter Distress machine which I love as you know.  Buttons are by PTI along with the fun sentiment!

I thought it would be fun to paper piece her beret and some accents on her coat (pockets, collar and sleeve accents) with the MME paper….always shade your paper pieces with your markers so they match the rest of your shaded/colored image.  I used Doodlebug Flock on her pom-pom accents, Stickles to accent her a bit.  I colored her with Shinhan TouchTwin markers in: Y42,G43,GY48,GY124 / B62,B66,B143 / BR95, BR04,BR109 and skin was done with Copics E11,E00.  I used some PTI scroll stamps to accent outside of the image as well.

That’s all for me today…make sure to stop by SCACD and check out the NEW STAMPS HERE and the new SCACD DIES too!
