Sneakers Peekers!!

Happy TGIFriday everyone!  Yippppeeee it’s the weekend again!  I’m keeping my chatter short today…I’ve put my lower back out and can barely walk so I’m gritting my teeth as I type this up.  Yes this is normal for me, I have a disintegrating disc in my lower back that likes to act up and this time its reallly bad…I might go get a shot at the dr’s office if I cannot get some relief.  Not to mention I’m leaving Tuesday for NY and Canada and have a TON of stuff to do of course…its like torture of many kinds I tell ya cuz I have issues with not moving and being immobile..big..and it makes me CRANKY LOL.  Which means I am a bowl-ful of fun to be around hahahaha! And no I’m not having surgery to correct it, I don’t want any surgery on my back right now…if you know my medical history than you know why that is but it ain’t happenin’ on my back right now.  But I’ll be ok and will push it as much as I can…tomorrow I just have lots of typing to do no coloring.  Coloring makes me bend in such a way that causes PAIN when my back hurts…I colored for 3 hours yesterday and gritted my teeth the whole time, no fun!

And for you I share a moment of hilarity with you Suzanne style (cuz this is my hubby every night, cuz I like to talk in bed LOL)…if you follow me on Facebook then you’ve seen this already hee hee!


Anywho I hope you are all gonna have a fabulous weekend!  I certainly plan to immobile or not hahahaha!

Peeker Fever!!!

Today get ready for a Cute and Cuddly release from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD—three new sets released today!!!  Our first set, The Storybook Collection, brings us all back to those childhood days when our best friend was our beloved Teddy Bear. We all told our secrets to our Teddy Bears, had a few misunderstandings but we always made up and were ready for new adventures to unfold.  Next we have a set of 4 adorable little girls who know how to work an accessory with their FUN hats that make up Sampler #6. Our final set, Sampler #7, is a variety of cute and fun! These 4 little girls remind us all of the simple pleasures of childhood from lollipop dreams, playing in the rain, picking wildflowers and getting bundled for weather to the point of not being able to move.

The DT is having a fun release hop so make sure to hop thru and see all these cuties in action!  If you came here Alex’s fun blog then I am last on the stop today or if you get lost (heehee) you can find the blog hop order on the Store Blog Here!!

IF you are overseas you can buy these cuties at Quixotic Paperie!

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

4 Crafty Chicks (distressing)  
PaperPlay Challenges (layers) 
Party Time Tuesdays (anything goes) 

I used the super cute “Big Hat Peeker” isn’t she a doll?  My papers are from “Authentique“ and I distressed all my edges just a bit for a soft look.  The photo corners are “Classic Corner” dies from Dies by SCACD.  The sentiment is by PTI, as is the ribbon and button accent!

She got colored up in Copics and I paper pieced the top of her shirt with the matching paper for a fun look.  Some Stickles on her hat dots and bottom of her shirt and pants..she wanted to shimmer!

  18. Really sweet card! Beautiful color combo! Hope you are feeling better soon!

  19. A really lovely ensemble - love those colours together and the image is so sweet.
    It is always a real pleasure coming by your blog and reading all about your life - can't believe how fast you go. Really sorry to hear about your back - I have the same degenerating discs but had the operation to remove a disc - I would recommend it and would have it done again in a flash just to get out of the pain - (which I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy) No doubt you will do what is right for you, but do take care and be careful.
    Hugs SarahSx
