Neapolitan Yummers!

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday!  Can you believe that tomorrow is April 1st already?  Wow--March flew by and I'm happy to be done with it to tell you the truth, LOL!  It was a very lonnnngggg month for me!  Spring is coming to VA and I'm soo happy--the trees are blooming, the grass is green & it's supposed to be 80 this week--wahoooo!!

We had a fabulous time in NYC--really, it couldn't have been any better!  It was nice to get away to new scenery and just spend time as a family and really connecting & having fun together. We did some shopping, lots of sight seeing around Central Park, visited the USS Intrepid, climbed to the top of 30 Rockefeller Center (Top of the Rock) & did the NBC Studio tour!  We also spent 2 days in Central Park at the zoo and taking a pedi-cab tour (bike cabs) which was really fun.  One night we saw "South Pacific" on Broadway (oh how I love the theater) and if you go to NYC you have to go to Macy's--it's the largest in the world and they have a floor of shoes (I'm in heaven)!!  A really nice time--the slideshow of our NYC trip is below (if you get this as a subscription you have to come to the blog site to view them)!  We got home around 1 am on Monday morning from NYC, then I had to teach a Copics Class at 11 am which I always enjoy and then hubby, me and Riley went to see Bon Jovi ROCK it out onstage (honestly, one of the greatest concerts I've been too--and I've been to a lot of them)!!  I'll have some Bon Jovi pics for you tomorrow--we had awesome seats--I do love Jon Bon Jovi!!  I remember getting their first album when I was 11--ack--so long ago! LOL!  But we got home at 1 am again & I'm still exhausted (as I type this up at 3 am in the morning)--I need some sleep, hee hee!


-Tomorrow is April 1st--which means lots of things happening in CraftLand, hee hee!  I'll have my Magnolia-licious Sketch project for you tomorrow and will start sending out the emails to those of you who have subscribed to the NEW mini-magazine "Through the Craftroom Door"--the paper versions will soon follow in the mail!

-If you're looking to sign up for a subscription to the mini-magazine or want a sneakie-peekie of the first edition you can go to the main site HERE for all of that info!

-If you're interested in Online Copic Classes you can visit my site "Color Me Creative Classroom" HERE to learn more about it all!  I will have the 4th class up very soon along with a few classes taught by friends too!


I was so excited when I got home to find that all my NEW My Mind's Eye papers from their LUSH lines had come in the mail--I love the colors and patterns in this line.  For this card I used the brown & pink lines to create my card with a Verve sketch HERE.

This cute lil' girl image is from Elisabeth Bell's line of stamps for SCACD and she's called "I Heart Ya"--isn't she a cutie?!  She's colored with copics (E29,E25,E53, R12,R11,R00) and then I've added some stickles to her shirt and heart for sparkle.  The background was embossed with my CB folder and I used my Bow Easy to make my bow and tied a heart charm to hang below it!  Some chocolate pearls finish it off--just a fun, cute card for someone special!

I'll be back tomorrow with some more fun projects for you!
Here is the slideshow of our NYC trip for you below:

    Thanks for sharing your awesome photos of NYC and your family...GORGEOUS family BTW! Sooo glad you enjoyed the time away!


  15. There is such a sweet shyness to this stamp. Your color combo goes right along with the shyness. soft mostly neutrals. The soft sparkle is such a subtle touch. Wonderful! So glad your are back from your trip, I almost feel like I was along for the ride from the slide show!


    PS I can't was for the email tomorrow for the NEW Mini Magazine! Yippee!!!!

  16. Loved the card...beautiful color combo...I went to NYC last July..for the first time, even tho I was born in NY, but upstate not the city....spent 3 days there and stayed at the Crowne Plaza right in Times Square...awesome time..and yes we ate at the Stardust Diner also...loved it...Didnt get to see as much as I would have liked but enjoyed it all just the same.

  17. Love your card Suzanne. Beautiful new papers.
    It looks like the whole family had a wonderful time in NY. I would love to see it one day *sigh.
    Now it is time for you to get some much needed rest. You have been way to busy and missed way to much sleep.
    Please take care of yourself.
    Hugs, Candy

  18. Oh Suzanne. I love this card and the colors that you used. I am so going to have to get this stamp also. She is just delightful. Your coloring is always so stunning. Thanks for sharing you pictures. It looks like you all had such a wonderful time. I think it would be just so exciting to go to New York and to see South Pacific on broadway. WOW! That is my all time favorites.... Have a great day, Lisa G :D
