A Spring Explosion!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I apologize for the short post today but I'm on the road and currently typing this up at midnight, and I'm soooo exhausted LOL!  I have been on the road since Friday...first to Charlottesville to see Luke Bryan (awesome, more on that in another post cuz I gots stories heehee)..then back to my mom's...then to Columbia, SC on Sunday & toured Univ of SC on Monday...then traveled almost 6 hours to Birmingham, AL where we will tour Auburn Univ tomorrow and leave on Wed for Hilton Head.  Does that make you tired?  Yeah I'm BEAT LOL!  But so far a good time...course I think all our bums are numb and we are a tad travel weary.  We are staying at the Ross Bridge Resort in Birmingham (Alexa has declared its like Hogwarts so she's happy lol)..we have 2 rooms so I hope to get a bit of rest and then see some things around town after our tour tomorrow!  Anywho stay tuned for more posts & stories!!  **note it was chilly in SC and WINDY, then it snowed in Atlanta...so the weather is NOT very Spring like ugh**


Here's a few pics for ya:

my Luke Bryan...yeah we were in the pit...and we were really CLOSE ;)

Spring Explosion!!


Today is the Magnolia-licious Tuesday Challenge over at the Challenge Blog!  Its all about SPRING...spring colors, spring images, spring feel (cuz Spring sure is sloooow to come huh)!  So you can join in on the fun with us using a Magnolia OR Wee Stamp...all the challenge details and DT projects are at the Challenge Blog HERE!  I created the brightest, sunniest, happiest, cheeriest colored card I possibly could to chase the winter blues AWAY!!!



My card uses an older image from the 2012 Summer Memories Collection "Rose Garden Tilda" (she's 12% off too) at Magnolia-licious...whoot!  I had never used her (gasp) but she's soooo DARN CUTE and perfect for Spring!  I used a mix of papers from Trimcraft "Hideaway"...loved the bright colors!  I used a Memory Box die for the white swirls, flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and border is from a MS border punch.  The leaves are a mix of Marianne Designs dies & Spellbinders dies that I inked.  The other green-foliage in the corners is actually an SCACD die "Ornate Hinge"...its a beautiful die that can be used in other ways.  The sentiment is from PTI accented with some rhinestones.


She's colored with TouchTwin markers (colors to come, sorry I forgot my chart) but I'll update it soon.  Some Stickles on the flowers and trim on her shirt.  Perfect for a Spring's Day!

Have an awesome week everyone!!

  19. Hey Suzanne, Glad you're having a good time - although that shot of Riley looks like "This trip is not about me, so I'm going to just chill out while I can!" It is so cute!!! I love the "Dean Family Adventure" stories.
