Buzzinnnn’ with Joy!!

Well hello and a very happy Thursday to you all!  It is raining again but that is a-ok as long as it clears out by tomorrow evening for the weekend!  Tomorrow night hubby and I have to take tickets for the first half of the Homecoming football game and then we can go and watch the 2nd half. Everyone that has a student athlete has to volunteer and I’m not really into the Concession Stand anymore LOL—I got assigned the dumb fryer ONE too many times and I hate it!  So we got ticket taking which is fine with me hee hee.

Today I have work to do, errands to run and then I’m having lunch with a good friend that I haven’t caught up with in awhile—this summer was just crazy and I feel bad we haven’t gotten together.  So it will be fun and we are going to a fave restaurant of mine that my hubby doesn’t care for LOL.  He’s not a big seafood guy and you all know I would eat it everyday soooooo my friend is like me and we usually eat the same things at restaurants LOL so it will be fun!  Get out of the house for a bit, change of scenery will do me good.  Then the homecoming fun starts tomorrow and thru the weekend!  Then I am off to San Jose, CA for the weekend to teach and see some sites in San Francisco—I’m sooo excited, I cannot wait.  I have had the Golden Gate Bridge on my Bucket List for a very long time, I’m giddy with excitement (I know, I know it’s a bridge but still).  And yep I’m sure I’ll have some travel stories LMBO—hopefully nothing too scary hee hee!


-Want to take a Copics Class with meeee? LOL!  I will be in San Jose, CA next weekend and then Bloomington, IL in November!  I'd love to meet you!  All info is at !

-7 Kids College Fund has new goodies up!  Cute, new SWALK stamps here, Sew Ribbon tools and new La La Land stamps!


Buzzinnnn’ with Joy!!


Ok this little cutie is sure to clear out any dreariness in your day today!  Isn’t she a cutie-patootie?  This is a stamp by Sylvia Zet for SCACD and her name is “Loli & Shellie”.  I love using black in my projects—it always makes such a statement whether funky fun or elegant.  Even though I used bumble-bee colors I wanted it to be more elegant than funky and perfect for any occasion which is why I left off a sentiment from the front!

I’m entering this into the following challenges today:
Top Tip Tuesday (designer papers)
Craft Your Passion (any occasion)
Woodware USA (anything goes)
Cutie Pie Challenge (Bingo—mine is glitter, flowers,p.paper)
The Pink Elephant Challenge (photo inspiration)


The papers I used are by Authentique in “Blissful” and I love the black, grays and yellows in this paper pad—such a great color combo.  Those fabulous borders were done with some awesome exclusive dies from Scrap Happy Ohio, she has some beautiful ones and yep you can buy them at her online store! I love the delicacy of this die and all those lil’ holes in each scallop popped out easily too.  The scrolls are by Cherry Lynn Designs and the flowers I just stacked some Primas together.  The lil butterfly is an embelly that I got a few CHA’s ago in a craft booth—I forgot I had them LMBO (that is not surprising if you see the state of my studio right now, ugh)!


Little Loli and her friend was colored with Copics – YR23,Y18,Y11,Y000 / C9,C7,C5,C3,C1 / E11,E00,R20 / YG67,YG03,G11.  I added stickles to her headband and tulips (I love tulips) and then on the cute snail I added Diamond Glaze to her shell and then sprinkled Glamour Dust sparkles in it (they suspend in the liquid—so cool).


So hope this cheered you and brought a smile to your face today Smile  See you back here soon!  Have a fabulous day!
