Fruity Drinks and Fun at the Beach



I used "Live Half Full" (HERE), the new {ippity} itty bitty that was part of the release this may.  Great for summer and living an optimistic and free life!



Speaking of free, my daughter has been visiting and leaves to visit friends north of here today.  We had a great visit and took a few hours to relax at the beach yesterday afternoon.  It was a tad bit breezy and cool, but really jumped started my sense that summer really is almost here!




Isn't she beautiful?

The sparkle reminds me of sugar, which is how I like my lemonade to taste. Love how you used it!

Oooo, sparkly! Love the card, and yes, your daughter is beautiful. I found the expressions of your dog and your husband rather humorous. Do our pets look like us, or do we look like our pets?

Can I have one of what you are pouring? It looks amazing! Love your sparkle! Fabulous colours on this terrific card.

GOOD LUCK on your half marathon... that is more challenge that I could handle. Glad you had fun at your other run too. I have a 5 km coming up... just for fun.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
HOP START
Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.
IT'S MY ANNIVERSARY.
Anyway... Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.





Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

If you want to see the entire hop, start at Julie's blog

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
