DDC # 73 - Copy cats

This is my 2nd post of the day and this time I'm here for the challenge over at Digi darlas.  Our challenge for you is anything goes but with the same image we have used!  It's so fun to see what everyone does with the same image.  It turns out totally different!!!

The image that we all used is Smile and Flower please.  I thought this would be a perfect get well card.

613 Avenue DT card - National Friendship day

Hello everyone!  It's Sunday and this means that we are leaving the campsite :(  This is sooo sad that it's over and that we have to wait another 50 weeks before doing this again!  Very much looking forward to it already.

Ok well you are here for my DT post for 613 Avenue Create not to hear me whine about my vacation being over...

This time our awesome sponsor is
 KennyK shop badge
For my card I got to play with the awesome Girl Gamer.  I wanted to create something that my son could send to his friend for her birthday this fall.  She's a big time gamer like him so when I saw this image I knew that it would be perfect!  And for this card I went with some of her favorite colors and used some stuff that a teenager would like.

WOW ohhhh WOW - House Mouse in the house

Today was the best last day EVER to our camping trip.  I got to meet the fabulous folks behind House Mouse designs.  I had e-mailed them because I was staying in Vermont and the cute little craft store that was selling their stamps was closed!!!  So very sad right?!?  Especially since the only store in Montréal that I've seen with their stamp is also closing...

So discovering their website I did something that I never ever do I wrote them!  I'm usually way to shy to dare do something like that.  But I soooo love their stamps... so I wanted to know where I could find them.  Since they are based from Vermont really close to where I was staying, I thought there might be some other local store.  Barry one of the owner's answered me (so fast actually I was super happy) and gave me some addresses and then to my complete surprise gave me the option of going to his house where they had some stamps  that I could browse through!!!!!!  Ohhhhh you should have seen me... I was like a groupie... I figured I must sound like one of those crazy fans that rock bands have!!!!

And then to really complete the fabulous trip over, Ellen the artist came to see us!!!!!  She even signed some of my stamps and took the time for a picture with us.

From left to right Megan (my daughter, myself, Ellen and finally William in the front).  William and Megan were super excited to be there and get some tips on how to draw (they looooove to draw as well).  My 2 other boys were packing stuff up while we were there enjoying ourselves.  You can see by my smile how happy I was!!!!!  They were all so very nice.  Barry made a huge impression on my son who thought he really was the coolest since he offered him soda and some candy lol.  I'm still in shock that I got to meet them.  It really was a dream come true!!!!!

Thank you so very much Barry, Nicole and Ellen for being such totally amazingly sweet people.  And Ellen please continue to draw those fabulous Mouses and friends.  I have a collection going and don't want to stop.

Hope all you my fabulous following friends had a great day as well.  But I bet you can't beat this! ;o)

A little post for the fun of it

Today it was a gorgeous day but still too cold for the beach... so we enjoyed some shopping at Barnes&Nobles, some new clothes for my daughter (all the stuff that we purchase here remind them of the vacation... so I'm a total sucker for that lol and I got some pretty good sales), we also went and purchased our ornament for this year's Christmas tree and it will be a Skunk (a cute little one)... now you might wonder why... well... we have seen a skunk around the campground this year... and last night at 11pm as I was going out to the restroom... I heard my neighbor tell me "watch out mam there's a skunk" sure enough she was under our bbq... so I hurried to the washroom but I knew I would have to come back.... and while coming back... it was in between my car and the kids tent.  Let's just say that I didn't go out again!!!!

So...I'm back with another little creation from Lacy Sunshine.  I had some all prepared and not blogged this was perfect for this week when I'm camping and can't really create any cards for you guys.

So I'm back with a card with Anastasia she's such a great Moppet!!!!!  Love them so very much!!!!

WOYWW - July 24th 2013

Hello again everyone!!!  What are you up too?  Today was pretty cold here camping... no rain but not warm enough to enjoy the beach.  So while my hubby and kids were playing golf freezbie and Cantan I played with my copics and got some of my DT work done in advance!!!  YAY for me lol

So I'm here for the WOYWW post, pretty good that I remembered!!!  Because it was colder and it was all wet this morning I set up inside to play so here's my set up for the day.
So you see some of my copics the others are under the table in my bag, my chalks, and some of the digis that I colored today!!!

Hope your day was fun as well!!!


Birds eye view of camping

Goodmorning everyone!  It's been quite a night here... strong rain and thunderstorm... and as you have seen in my installation pictures my 4 kids are in a tent as I'm in the tent trailer with my hubby... so I spent a big chunk of the night worrying about them...  Anyway, all is good nothing as fallen and broken our set up, and the kids must be good because it's almost 9 and they are still all sleeping lol

I'm here today to share with you my camping journal again but this time with some fabulous artwork from Create with TLC.  It was the perfect embellishments to my pages and wow this set is a freebie this week with any purchases you make!!!!  Look at all the awesome sets you get

So I used a fee of the images and one of the sentiment for my journal.  Here are my pictures for you.  This is the double page layout that I did.
And a closer look at the page on the left.  I cut out a slit in the tag and passed a little lace ribbon that I had brought with me.  I used my scallop circle from Spellbinder to cut it out.
And here's the page of the right were I used one of my label spellbinder to cut the bird and fussy cut the tag.  I added a little Robin's nest dew drop to it.
I hope that my little journal will have inspired you to use those fabulous digis in other ways than the typical card!!!  And you have to check out that great deal!!!  I mean 4 sets of freebies for just a little purchase... that's such a fabulous opportunity!!!!

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

  1. Anything challenge - Anything goes
  2. Cuttin and stampin challenges - Scrap your vacation - that's what I'm doing through this journal, getting everyone's comment on what we are doing while away camping.

Lillianna - Lacy Sunshine

Hello everyone!  I'm back with a card I had made a few months ago for Lacy Sunshine but had not yet blogged.  I really love making cards but sometimes it's hard to find the time to blog them.  So I figured that while I'm camping I'm going to blog all the cards that I have done and not blogged yet.

Heather has made the most awesome Melancholy Moppets.  They remind me of little ghosts and since I'm on vacation I've been reading some stories about ghosts and witches and such.  This reminded me of those cards not yet posted lol.

This little Moppet is called Lilianna.

Camping pansy...

It's Friday and this time not that happy about it... well it means that one week of our vacation is over.... why is it that the time goes a lot faster when we are on vacation than when we are at work?!?

Anyway, I'm here because as those of you that follow my blog know I really love progressive challenges. And there's one at Outlawz that I play with.  It's every 2 weeks so I have to post and create something while I'm here camping... that means that I have some limited options because I don't have as much material to play with.  I was really lucky because this time around there was a great corner image.  So I decided to integrate it with my camping journal.  Hope that's ok!

I do scrapbook... I haven't played in mine for a little while but the latest one that I was doing was our memories of Camping.  And since I'm slow at making it... last year I figured that I really should be taking more notes because it's hard a few years later to remember what happened that year.  So last year we made a camping journal.  It's fun, everybody writes a little note about their day every day.  And this way we also see the progression of the writing of the kids ;o)  So liking this idea I started out another one this year.

And I have been integrating some images that I have been coloring.  But can't share them to you yet.  They will be part of some of my DT work!  I can share one page however which is the one with the great pansy corner.
So that's the look of the 2 page layout journal.  I also add some stickers and other stuff as embellishments. And with the other picture you will be seeing a closer version of my 2 youngest's writing ;o)
So that's my way of building memories.  Of course the boys complain a bit about having to write in it... but I figure at a much later date they will have fun reading this.  Even their dad writes in it lol

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. Outlawz challenges - Freebie progressive challenge
  2. Sparkle n sprinkle creative challenges - Anything but a card
  3. Simply create too - anything but a card

Have a great Friday everyone!!!! No shopping for me today!  I'm taking it easy with some coloring, reading, blogging. ;o)
