A Birthday Wish!!!

Hello & Happy Friday to you all!  Do you have a fabulous weekend planned?  Its Riley’s birthday (# 14) on Sunday so I’ll do a fun post for him on Sunday to celebrate.  We still haven’t figured out what we’re doing….pulling info outta a teen boy is HARD man…HARD!  So I THINK we are going to DC for the day on Saturday to the Air & Space Smithsonian, then dinner and some other fun activity with him and a friend.  Then next weekend he will have a slumber party…umm yay mom will be in Texas so it will be up to my hubby to control the teens hahahaha (no I do not feel bad as that is my life most weekdays and weekends lol).  So his big present….we got him into a football camp taught by his favorite Redskin Brian Orakpo this summer.  It’s a 4 day over-night camp at a VA college and they do nothing but eat, sleep & run football drills…right up his alley eh? LOL—he’ll have fun and enjoy it I know.  He’s such a big guy…6’1 currently and still growing with size 13.5 feet…clothing and feeding him is EXPENSIVE I tell ya---where the heck did my baby boy go?  You blink and they disappear I tell you!


-My Copic Classes are ongoing at the CMC Classroom and I will be traveling this year again of course…fun for me & you right lol.  I will be in Texas next weekend and I have just a couple of spots left if you want to attend…just email me if you want.  Then I”ll be in Florida in 2 locations and then WV.  I am working on dates for Vancouver and Montreal Canada as well so stay tuned for those Smile  Also this summer will be Chicago, Ontario, maybe Buffalo and possibly Montana…yayyyyy!  All details will be on for you.

-The weekend of May 19th the Outlawz is having a Crafty Retreat in Baltimore, MD and I will be teaching one day of classes.  You can see the details HERE and then sign ups for my classes will be up at --- I will do two classes that day from 8 am till 4 pm if you are interested in coming.  There will be other classes, fun activities and people to meet with and its always lovely in the Inner Harbor during spring….so hope you can come!

Birthday Wishes!!

Ok so today this post is for my friend and fellow Magnolia-licious DT sister Angie Hunt who is a Birthday Girl!  Angie also teaches the Distress Inks class over at the CMC Classroom and is the owner of Little Darlings Rubber Stamps Store s and she’s just a super talented designer to boot and I’m happy to call her a friend!  So her DT Lead & friend, the sweet Mindy Baxter decided to have a Birthday Post Day for her to celebrate and show off the new Lil’ Darlings stamps “Cutie Pies”.   And while you are at it don’t forget to wish Angie a Happy Birthday at her blog here too!

So hope you enjoy and you can pop over to Mindy’s Blog Here to see the rest of the ladies participating with projects today!!

I got to use this super cute image from the Lil’ Darlings “Cutie Pies”…she’s adorable and her name is “What a Sweetheart”.  I used papers from Prima for a spring-shabby chic look, I’m soooo ready for spring I tell ya LOL.  To decorate I added some swirls made with a Heartfelt Designs SB die “Bella Rose” and then added some Prima flowers.  A few pearls finish it off---I added some pearl buttons to her shirt and to the flowers on her hat too. And yes I had to bling her up a bit with some Stickles on her shirt, shoes & sash on her hat.


So go check out these “Cutie Pie” stamps…I’m sure you will find them absolutely adorable and want to add a few to your collection!!  Enjoy & don’t forget to visit Mindy’s blog to see the rest of today’s birthday participants!

And a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ANGIE….I hope its fabulous, fun and filled with lots of love and joy my friend!!!
