Whip It Good!!

Happpppy Frrriiiiiiddddayyyyyy ….yeehawwww it’s the weekend!  And I have NOTHING planned, well nothing big anywho LOL.  It’s a football weekend and we hope to finish moving Riley down to the basement tomorrow.  His bedroom is becoming my 2nd studio…it will be my mixed-media-painting room only and is right across my current craft room.  I cannot wait hee hee…a whole closet to store my goodies so I can clean out my craft room a bit.  I have to strip the wallpaper and then paint the room and get my desk put together for in there.  But bit by bit it will get done, I’m not in a huge rush…but will be happy to have the space.  So Riley will have a bigger room downstairs and a BIG bed for his BIG self now LOL!  Seeing his 6’3” self in a twin bed at night cracks me up…he’s a tad too big for it now so we got him a bigger bed.  We have a kitchenette down in the basement, along with an 80” big screen-tv, pool table and bathroom so of course he thinks its like his “teen-bachelor pad” so he’s way excited! 

Tonight we have a BIG HS Varsity football game against our 2nd rival (we beat the pants off the other one last week yay) and tonight both teams are undefeated…so it’s a biggun!  I’m off to the Tractor Supply Store today to buy 20 cowbells for the Tusky Terror kids to ring tonight…I’m gonna get meself a HUGE one LOL!  Last night Riley’s team was supposed to play but because of terrible storms it got cancelled in the first quarter…the boys were disappointed but they’ll get their chance soon again. 

Thought I’d share a few pics with you---one is my daughter, she likes to photograph herself with her phone LOL but this was on our way to see Luke Bryan a few weeks back.  She is obsessed with SnapChat where you take “selfies”…that’s pics of yourself for those NOT in the know Winking smile  The other one is two pic frames I have of my son….one is his current HS football picture and the other I found behind another picture, its when he was in 2nd grade playing for his MD football team.  Wasn’t he a cutie?  Awwww, I have these pics side by side in the family room now and I must say they made me cry (you know I rarely cry cuz I hate it). Riley walked by and I’m like “hey look at these pics, aren’t they cute?”…he says “Mom are YOU crying…you are SO weird…you really are a freak if you are crying over pictures!”.  LOL oooohhhhh how I both want to hit him and hug him at the same time these days….teen boys…what else can I say!!

Just Whip It!!

So today the SCACD DT has a fun hop to show off the new releases for Susana Loves Stamps Line—Eyes of Adventure & Fables.  I got to use cutie “Adventure Eyes” which was one of my faves…I like that she’s a bit kick-ass spunky fun traveler-girly!  All of these new stamps are fab and you are sure to find a few that you need!  I decided to give this one a bit of a “Girl-Style Indiana Jones” treatment! 

The hop starts HERE since I am the end of the hop or you can find all the details at the store blog HERE!  For those that are international you can buy them at Quixotic Paperie as well!

The papers are by My Minds Eye and you can see a huge selection of 6x6 paper pads HERE (most are new and some on sale…whoot)!  I distressed all the edges and inked them.  Within the paper pad were fun accents so that is where the tiny tix and circle sentiments came from…I just cut them out and inked them!  Then the twine got wrapped around and tied off with a button.

She got colored with Copics:  BG72,BG11,BG10 / E44,E43,E42,E41,E40/ E11,E00,R20 / E59,YR20,E50,E31 / B97,B95,B91.  Then a nice coat of Stickles on her tank top…HEY she may be in the wild but she’s gonna do it with some BLING on LOL!  Let me also mention that this stamp comes with a cute lil’ map stamp as well that you can use!! 

That’s it for me today…hope you have a wonderful weekend!  I’ll see you back here on Monday with some new Gina K Releases!!
