Think of Me?!

Happy Friday to you all!  I’m currently at my Gram’s home in upstate New York thru Sunday, then I’m off to Guelph Canada for a week of teaching at Younique Retreats. (PS I drove thru snow, rain & sleet up here…BLECH me no likey that stuff) This is the longest I’ve ever been away from home….11 days…so while I can’t wait to meet everyone & teach..I’m also a bit sad to leave my family and fur-babies for such a long time.  My wedding anniversary is Nov 4th…this is the 3rd year I’ve NOT been home for it..yikes…lol!  Good thing I have an understanding hubby and we will celebrate when I get home.  We’ve been together for 18 years and all is still good, I love him to pieces and count my blessings every day that he loves me and me him!  Trust me I am A LOT to keep up with most days and thank god he is so laid back…I’m like a whirlin-twirlin-tasmanian devil and he’s like the calm in the midst of the storm for me Winking smile So this is the last trip of the year for me for teaching and when I get home I will start prepping for the holidays…no rest for the weary eh?  But I tend to slow down a bit…ahahahaha…no really I do try to not take on much during the month of December to rest a bit.  But you know life goes on, family calls, work doesn’t stop and so on right?  But I do the best I can and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas…yes 12 trees will go up again this year.  Already got everything ready in my head and planned out…now to get my “hauler” aka hubby to get all my goods out so I can start preppin!

And prayers, peace and good wishes go out to my neighbors in the north who lost their homes, lost people they love and had such horrific damage to their property and towns due to Hurricane Sandy (shouldn’t it have a meaner name, Sandy is WAY too nice a name for something so terrible).  Its just heartbreaking….we count ourselves very lucky in Virginia.  When you think you are having a bad or stressful day you can reflect on JUST how bad it truly could be…I know my stress does NOT even compare to what they are dealing with.

Think of Me!!

This is SCACD's last 2 stamp releases of the year! We're bringing you cuteness from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD with 4 new adorable stamps in the Sampler #8 Collection. We also have Susana Loves Stamps new collection- Mythical Reflections which brings you 4 more mythical stamps to help inspire you and help you create! Be sure to check out all the details on the SCACD store blog and hop along with the SCACD DT as we showcase these amazing new stamps!


So I used a super-cute stamp from the Sampler #8 Collection called “Who Me?”..I just love her!  I used papers from Fancy Pants “Hopscotch” collection…with all the nasty Hurricane rain and bad weather I wanted to use some happy-spring colors!  I distressed all my papers and then I cut mats with my SB’s Labels 16 die…then I cut them in HALF so I could pop them out on either side of my main image.  Flowers are a mix of Prima and Wild Orchid Craft that I layered and added.  The wispy, pink die cut is a Memory Box die (Catalina Wreath) that I inked and cut in half and added to each bundle of flowers—just another fun way to use your wreath dies.




She’s colored with Copics and then I added a nice coat of Stickles to her headband & shirt for bling!  A few pearls finish it off!

Now you need to hop over to Amanda’s Blog to see what she’s created!! 

Make sure to stop by the Store HERE & the Store Blog HERE!!  Have a great weekend!
