Joy to the World

Saturday, December 20, 2008

I can hardly believe that Christmas is around the corner! Last night we spent the evening at my husband's mom's with his uncle and cousin. It was a pre Christmas celebration because they have to travel to Arizona during Christmas. Uncle Lou is always a treat! Lily got her gift early from Nana and if you are looking for a last minute toddler gift run out and get this little guy. Elmo is amazing, he sings, he dances, he tell you he loves you. He has a little stool that he sits on and he stands on one leg. We adults were mesmerised by this little toy. He told jokes too! I could not stop laughing and Lily was pretty impressed too!

I love Hero Arts blog and visit almost everyday. There is almost always something going on and this week it was sketches and Basic Grey paper. I used Basic Grey paper to create this sweet layout of Lily in her first party dress. I also had to used a Hero Arts stamp and I only own two right now but I found a clever way to incorporate the one that would be appropriate for this layout. I stamped the image and use emboss resist and inked the colored circles in blue, yellow and pink. They are behind the flowers and the butterflies. I also used rub ons from Me and my big ideas. Those were pretty good rub ons by the way.

I am off to my Master's class at Prima Marketing and I am SO excited. I looked it up on Map Quest and just as I figured it's about an hour from here. I am dropping Scott off at his dad's house first for vacation. I will miss him but I know he is really looking forward to seeing his dad for a good stretch.

Have a great Saturday and go create something!
