Seein' It Thru!

Happy Tuesday friends!  How are you all doing this week?  I'm hoping for a sunny day today...its been rainy for 2 days now and yes we needed it but I'm over it KWIM LOL!  I am nursing a few injuries so I'm gonna try and keep my chatter down a bit...gasp...yes I will try LOL!  We had a crazy weekend that is for sure so I will narrow it down for you picture by picture below...then my project is down below for you all as well!  It was a bit of a sports themed four days you could say...we had a blast but I'm still in recovery mode :)

Alexa on her 17th birthday in her new bday outfit!

we traveled to Baltimore for the Raven's NFL Draft Party & to crack some
yummy MD blue crabs...mmmm my fave

Alexa met her football idol Torrey Smith of the Ravens
he was huggin her, singin and talkin'...she's still on Cloud 9

 Friday night her BFFs came over & we all went out for Japanese to celebrate!

I also took Riley to our mall Friday night to meet the Washington Capitals..this is him with
the goalie Holtby whom Riley has his jersey...and was lucky enough to have him sign it too.

We went to FedEx for a Redskins Draft party on Saturday...that's one of my fave Redskins Niles Paul, he fell on me at an earlier party I went to and stepped on my bare toe & knocked me down.  He sprained my widdle toe LOL...but he was so nice & tweeted me later to see how I was :)

Riley in the Redskins locker room standing in front of who's locker....RGIII's locker yeahhhh baby!

 Then we wrapped things up with a Nationals game on Sunday...that's me and my Mini-me...literally hee hee! 

Next up Thursday night we can all be found in DC at the Washington Capitals play-offs game against the NY Rangers :)  Phew......

Seein' It Through

This is my project for the current Magnolia-licious Tuesday Challenge...the theme is to use Vellum in a fun way.  Don't let vellum scare you...its easy to use and in many ways.  I decided to use my Silhouette Cameo to cut an intricate box for my cute "Princess Pea Tilda" to sit on...she's from the newest Once Upon a Time Collection at Magnolia-licious.  So the top of my box is vellum and it cut beautifully on my Cameo.  You can stamp on vellum, you can emboss it, die-cut it and more...so much fun to use and such a soft look!  So make sure to enter your projects HERE for a chance to win!

I also die cut my flowers and label from the vellum and added some Stickles to the vellum flowers.  I get my vellum from Paper Temptress...she has it in so many beautiful colors although I like the white the best!  The scroll like die cut is from a Memory Box die "Blooming Vine".  I added some layered Prima roses and vellum flowers around my sentiment...sentiment is from PTI.  Tilda was colored with Copics:  R22,R20,R11 / Colorless Blender / E35,E31,E50 / E11,E00 / C3,C1,C00.

The bottom of my box was cut from pink shimmery cs from Paper Temptress...cut easily on the Cameo and adds a bit of shine to the project.  Then I added some Magnolia paper around the lid and punched a border with a MS border punch from my vellum to wrap around the lid as well.  So this box can fit lots of fun little treasures or gift cards inside...perfect for your girly girl!


  1. Oh Suzanne this is absolutely breathtaking. You continue to blow me away with your amazing talent. I love every stinkin thing about this project. BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!

  2. oh it's beautiful. love love love the colours. Hugs! Mojca

  3. I love the picture of you and Alexa and the caption, "mini me"! You guys do look alike! I absolutely ADORE and LOVE the box project. I just a Cameo! Are you willing to share what the files were?

  4. Alexa looked beautiful in her new birthday outfit; and yes you do both look alike :) I love the box, it's stunning and I kept staring at the hair thinking you must have different Copics than me, b/c my hair coloring sure doesn't look like that by just using the "E" colors.

  5. Wow, Suzanne,
    What a beautiful box!
    It is so feminine - I love the colours.
    Of course Tilda is wonderful :o)
    Big Hugs, Candy

  6. Absolutely Gorgeous!! Your daughter and your gift box!

  7. Woweee Suzanne! This box is too die for! I love Tilda! I love vellum and have a big stash of it, problem is I don't know where I stashed it! LOL!
    Your life is my dream life! I live in sparsely populated Texas Panhandle so the chances of me meeting a big sports figure is next to none. I adore sports and am a fan of most everything. I did see RGIII several times when Baylor played University of Oklahoma LOL! OU Games are about all I get to these days. :-( You know RGIII went to HS and College BU in Texas. No wonder you all are crazy about him! LOL!
    I hope Alexa had a fantastic birthday! Don't you have one coming up this week?
    Big Hugs!

  8. What a beautifull box, just lovely!
    Love the pink and white!

  9. Beautiful box, Suzanne! I love the rose and white combo. Tilda has been colored so beautifully! What a special way to present someone with a gift within a gift! I love it!


  10. Wow, I saw this box on your CMC site and hadn't read the write up until tonight....thank you thank you and thank you! Wishing you an AMAZING birthday and an even better year! So glad that you are in my life!
    the PaperTemptress

  11. Happy (belated) birthday! I love seeing pictures of your family. :)
    What an adorable card! I hadn't seen that Tilda before - Tilda's getting a little sexier these days! ;-)
