Happy TGIFriday to you all! I am leaving today after kids get home from school but have packing left to do and house to prepare for our pet-sitter…never an end to chores ‘eh? But I’m so looking forward to the 80 degree weather, sound of the ocean and the pluff mud in the SC area..it’s a sweet smell, makes me feel at home. We are taking our bikes cuz’ we mostly bike around the island..best way to get around and get exercise. I’m always the lead biker…yep momma runs the show…kids in the middle…hubby at end LOL. And then Alexa and Riley bicker about who gets to be right behind me and how he’s too close to her and she’s too slow..and so on and so on…oh the joys of children I tell ya! LOL---love ‘em but they can drive me nutty that’s for sure! God only blessed me with two even though we wanted three but now I’m thinking that God knew what he was doing…he knew I could only PUT UP with two of them…bwwahahahahaha…so no more kiddoes for me…no sirreee. I see the light at the end of the tunnel in the next couple of years…I will miss them but I will be glad to see them grow into the adults that I know they will become. I know for sure…this one thing…being a parent IS the hardest, toughest job in the world and it never truly ends..its 24/7 for the rest of your and their lives. I give my parents kudos for all the ups and downs we kids brought them…however I must say that out of the 3 of us…I was best behaved then and now…hahaha..although I know I still give my mom gray hairs on occasion. That’s what kids ARE for right??? God help the day when I find a gray hair in my darn head…the roof may raise off my house…my mom hardly has any gray and she’s 69 so I hope to follow in that…if not I will be getting my roots done OFTEN. I will spend my morning hours plucking those gray babies outta my head..oh yes I will..do NOT doubt me! I am slightly vain when it comes to old age…I don’t want wrinkles (hence my regular skincare routine)..and I don’t want gray hair (gray is not really my color..my colorwheel does not like it lol). So no C3,C5 or C1 colors in my hair please (that’s copic speak for you non-colorers LOL)! Now I will not be a Demi Moore or a Joan Rivers but I will fight what I can while I still can..but no botoxed face for me…I cringe at the thought. And yeah no fish-lips either..why do women do that…it NEVER looks good…ugh..so stop doing it. BUT perhaps a butt implant? My teen daughter told me a few months ago that my front looked like my back..haha..your kids will always tell you the truth…and I have lost some weight and with that went any butt that I had…so yep I am a tad flat back there. So I’m gonna buy me some booty-pop shorts to wear under my pants..oh yes I am…just to mess with her…and YES I will wear them in public to get even and HEY I might even like having a J-Lo hiney That’s about the only butt implant that I will ever come close to getting hahaha…oh the joys of being a mom I TELL YA!!! The things we do, and suffer and then get back by humiliation of our teens…oh yeah..that’s what I’m talkin’ about!

The DT is having a blog hop today and I’m last in the hop so you should’ve come from our guest designer Alina Meijer, but if you want to start at the beginning then go HERE! International Friends can purchase these stamps at Quixotic Paperie!
She’s colored with Copics: B95,B91 / Colorless Blender / C5,C3,C1 / E11,E00/ E99,E97,YR20,E31. Then I added Stickles to her bangles and jewelry. The pearls in her hair and on the die cut were done with my fave Viva Décor Pearl Pen in cream. I used some Tim Holtz stamps to stamp some swirls and such around the image with SU ink. I added Diamond Glaze to her eyes for some realistic shine as well!
