Hi everyone! I knoooooowwww its been 2 weeks since I posted last…I am sooo sorry LOL! But between being very sick and working feverishly every minute on my newest class at CMC and the start of school for my teens, well it left no time for me to create anything let alone post anything ack! But I am back and I promise to keep posting regularly for now LOL…cuz you just never know what may happen. In fact I just started feeling better, finished my class and NOW I AM SICK with Strep throat, double ear infection and sinus infection (ugh)…I shall go lay down in front of a semi! It NEVER fails that when the kids start school they bring home all kinds of awful germs and my immune system was already low…half of the high school is sick so Riley is sick and he gave it to me, oh yay! But whatever…I will deal…pull on my big girl panties and keep truckin as well as I can. Although I will say that strep ugh-double-uck…I would rather have the flu than strep..its yucky!
So my son’s football team is 2-0 so far….yay and he’s having fun and doing a great job! In fact he has a game tonight so hopefully they win again!! The high school had their first tailgate and varsity game last weekend which was a blast…we always love going and the school (even tho its only 3 yrs old) has great team spirit. The Tusky Terror is the group of students 250+ strong that dresses up, cheers & shoots off confetti canons…of course Alexa is in this LOL! So its like that “small town” Friday football night but in a bigger town so to speak LOL! And while we’re on the subject WHOOOOT REDSKINS and RGIII…what a great way to start of season…and Ravens too! So excited to have the football season kick off!
Today I’m using a super cute digi image from Tiddly Inks called “Whatever!”..I love her lil’ attitude AND the fact that she has fabulous hair for me to color. She is one of the images I’ve used to show how to color black hair on an image with no hair lines for my CMC All About Hair Class! Christy Croll has drawn the hair in such a way that it makes it fabulously fun to add depth and texture to it.
I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch today....I loved the fun layout and longer card size which worked well with my image! The papers are a mix from a few paper pads – MME “Glitz Paper-Cashmere” and MME “Six by Six-Oh Happy Day”(both on sale now at SCACD)…I wantedd a fun mix of hot pink, teal and black for this cutie! The funky branch elements are a Memory Box die called Leafy Branch, I used a new MS Border Punch for the border and those are black Glitter Dots at top. (sentiment from PTI)
She was colored with Copics – C9,C5,C3 / E11,E00,R20 / BG15,BG11,BG10 / RV17,RV14,RV11. I added some stardust Stickles to parts of the image, then I used some fun PTI stamps to stamp around the image a bit to funk it up.
