A Gorgeous Color Challenge and My Gorgeous Daughter!!



Have I said just how happy I am to be doing SCS Challenges again??!!! I LOVE them!!!! Today's challenge was a Color Challenge.......Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi and Certainly Celery!!! I LOVE pinks and greens!!! And these colors are soooooo perfect for my latest Basic Grey designer paper buy!!! I DO love my BG paper!!!

And I inked up my new Gina K. set........Retro Boutique by Rupa Shevde. I am soooo lovin' this girlie girl set!!! It's so perfect for glitz and bling!!!! LOL I used some cool velvet brads I found at a little LSS in Kansas City!! And of course some pearls and flowers and glitz.......OH MY!!!


Quick update............hubby has his MRI on Thursday and we're sure hoping it doesn't show anything serious. But that it does show SOMEthing so we can get him back to normal!!! My DD finally officially finished her homeschooling and is a GRADUATE!!!! And I am sooooooooooooo not old enough for that, lemme tell ya!!! ***wink*** Oh and she does NOT live in Ireland!! She just thinks she wants to and loves saying that!!! We'll let her have her 17 year old dreams!!! LOL I'm posting just a few of the many FABULOUS photos from her Senior Picture Session at Kirkland Photography & Design. Mark is THE absolute BEST photographer I've ever met!!!! He made my daughter feel like a million bucks and captured her personality and many facets beautifully!!!!! Thanks Mark!!!! His photography is stunning......I'm partial (besides these photos that is!!) to the FABulous wildlife photography he's famous for!!! Check him out!!!!!


And I just couldn't resist the temptation!!! I joined Paper Pretties Stamp of the Month Club!!! I'm excited to jump into some wonderful new stampin' challenges!! All of you who enabled me know who you are!!!! LOL And I just wanted so much to be a part of all of the fun with you!!! And OH MY!!! I sooooooo want that little Bunny Slippers girlie!!!!


Okeedokee..........I've got lots of stampin' and projects to make, DD's graduation announcements, etc..........I'll "see" you all in a bit!!!!

~ Have A Creative Day! ~

  10. Beautiful card and even more beautiful pictures of DD. They are wonderful. If it hadn't been for the brunette rather than red hair the one of her with the cowboy hat could be you!
    While on vacation besides doing a lot of reading I am listening to a book called Scarlet Feather by Maeve Binchy. It's set in Dublin and it is so cool to listen to the Irish accents......

  14. Hi girlfriend! I just caught up on your Blog posts since I 'disappeared' in June. I LOVE the cards - the flamingo one is just too cute. And the layers on the pink and brown one are fabulous. And the Diorama card!! Stunning!!

    Your DD is one beautiful girl and I am so glad you have these pics to enjoy. Congratulations on graduating, Erryn! What will be next for you I wonder?

    Oh, I am sorry to hear about the tests for your DH. I pray they will reveal something simple and easy to fix, and that he will be well again in no time.

    It's great to be back online so I can visit again!! 'See' you again soon. xx

  26. OH finally, we get to see your Gorgeous and stunning girl! OH, she is a beauty! I'm so jealous of that silky hair and those smokey blue eyes-woah! Look out, world! Please tell her congrats for me (even though she might think I'm crazy since I don't even know her!) But I remember this time in life, so full of dreams and hopes-I wish for her success in everything she aspires to be and a life full of blessings and happiness!

    Now, your retro girlie card is just too precious for words! How darling! I would venture to say that Rupa would be very proud! And you've joined the PP group and I feel left out! I don't even have any PP stamps....YET!! I can resist no longer--with you in this group and Jessie and Charmaine on the DT, I just have to be a part of the fun! I'm going shopping for new PP stamps today--shhh, don't tell hubby! Hugs Lee, have a great day!
