Nothing to share as far as artwork. My final presentation board is due on thursday and I am busy doing research and shopping for fabric swatches. My furniture period is Art Deco, so fun I love this furniture style.

What do you think of my new banner? I am still playing with it, I need to work on my blog name, i dont have photo shop and my windows paint shop is not cooperating with me, maybe its just that I dont know what Iam doing. The banner is in .png format and I have never heard of that before. Whis me luck on working everything out, to make the title GRAND!!

Anyhoo the wedding was beautiful and my outfit I dreaded shopping for was SO CUTE and CHIC. I found the entire outfit at Marshalls for under $80, two piece linen pants suit and shoes too!!! Marshalls was only the second store I went to. I was really happy. I took some great pictures of my family, especially my dad. Although I did forget to get a candid shot of him by himself.

I will attempt to create a quick card tomorrow,the stamp set is already out including the ink pads, I just need to stamp it.

One crazy week

Iam a little late with my post, but I had a notebook project due today for my furnitre class 19 hours of work, lots of printing, cutting and pasting. Tomorrow I have to shop for a new outfit for a wedding on saturday, get my nails done and take the boys for a hair cut all after work. Iam really not feeling this wedding but my Aunt and Uncle are renewing their vows, so I kinda of have to go. Thank goodness for a long weekend.

Okay enough rambling, the something big I had to share was the bella swap I participated in. I received some fabulous cards 19 to be exact and get this each person stamped their bella on a seperate piece of paper for others to use as they wish. I created to cards so I got double back WOOHOO. Thats 34 new bella images I didnt have so take a look.

Heres my contribution, I showed these before the new camera

The whole shabang

Look at all my bellas, are ya drooling?

Well I wont post for a few days, probably sunday. Have a fantastic weekend, I plan on grilling some real meat on the grill ( ribs and corn )

Just stopping in for a quick second

Well its been quite a busy weekend. I have not created a thing, but I do have something fabulous to share. I promise you wont be disappointed. Friday my hubby and I went to Stuart Andersons for happy hour, I am not much of a drinker a glass oaf wine here or there, well my old coworkers were there ( unexpectantly) its been 10months since I have hung out with them. So much fun. I spent saturday at the beach with the girls and my 2 sons. It was a perfect day, cool water, yummy snacks and some night cruising at the open promenade mall after the sun set!! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. Come back tomorrow.

More Bella and More ribbon

So I took all my little spools of ribbon half American Crafts and half Targets 3spools for a buck ribbon. I love how GREAT they look in the jar. You know I have come to realize that I like alot of my supplies because they are so PRETTY and they eventually look really good on my creations BUT more so for how well they look sitting around me. I can NEVER have to much ribbon. Going into a craft store I always check out the ribbon first, especially the dollar bins!!! GOTTA LUV IT, right?Right!

Jamies Bella sketch challenge, this is from last week. But yet again it got me to CREATE a card, so what it took me two days to create it!!

Cardstock is all close to my heart

Happy Mothers Day

Too all you mothers! I hope every one had a fantastic day with their families. I had the day off, no cleaning, no coking YEAH. I attended church and back home, dinner was ordered in and I sat here and did what I wanted to do. I received a very nice card from my hubby, he always picks the sweetest cards,(her really take is time reading and choosing the right one) I got my spring/summer robe. I put it on around 4pm and enjoyed every minute of wearing it. My card is not a mothers day card, its a color challenge. Iam not as fast as other bloggers. But Iam doing my best to create the challenges and just create something. Heres what I have for today, Marjories challenge #17.

Hello Monday

See, I told you I would be back soon. So I have a new addiction fresh juice drinks from the newest place down the street. Its called Robeks and they are yummy, we have a Jamba juice a couple of miles away but its not convenient enough for me. This place is a hop skip and a jump from home. I have tried several types of choices but I think my favoite is the Mahala Mango with a powerbek for energy, but I believe the boost is keeping me from sleeping at night. I will have to try a new boost, but the juice is definately staying

The yahoo bella groups color challenge, I did not participate personally but took on the challenge anyways. I need these challenges to keep me going, thanks Sparkle of out her site its AWSOME!!) So here goes.

Heres a picture of the Poppy reserve near my home, every spring we wait to see how the poppys will bloom. This year they are beautiful take a look. If you see a x just left click it and the pic will open.
