Saturday, April 3, 2010

I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. I can't believe tmr is Easter Sunday..Wow! Time has really flown by this year so far. My son doesn't have spring break until April 12th so one more week of school for him and then he'll go visit his dad. I wish I got to share a few of those vacation days but I'll have to wait til summer.

This week's sketch at 2S4Y is brought to us by the lovely Kazan

I knew I wanted to use my newest collection from We R Memory Keepers, Vintage Blue to create my take on this week's sketch. I love the pattern, colors and textures of this beautiful line.

Next there is a new challenge over at my second home the Hero Arts blog. This month's theme is Home and Mother's Day. I picked up this cute Happy Mother's Day stamp by Hero Arts last night at Stampin from the Heart in Los Angeles. They were having a Stampin Cafe night and I packed up my stuff, kissed the kids goodnight and went to stamp it up. Didn't know anyone but I didn't mind. I needed a night to myself and it was so fun :0 Here's a peek at a couple of cards I created.

I think it's time to buy the Corner Chomper since my corner rounder is leaving these dot marks on my card when I am rounding the edges or am I doing something wrong?

I was inspired by Tami Hartley's card on Alice's win a day on the Hero blog. She used hearts on her car but I don't have those images and instead made mine with flowers and couple of butterflies.

Oh and did I mention I agreed to make 60 Thank You cards for my son's school. They are having a teacher appreciation week at the end of April and since I can't really get out to help at school I signed up to make the cards. I have a goal of 10 cards per day and have 5 done so far...lol

Last is a layout I scrapped on Thursday night with the Vintage Blue line as well and some letter stickers from K&Co and American Crafts and of course my most favorite embellishments from Prima. My husband was a little upset I scrapped this layout of my daughter sucking her fingers with the index one up her nose. I thought it was a great shot and it's who she is right now.

Tmr is our Annual Smith family Easter egg hunt at Nana Virginia's. Scott and Gavin are excited and I am curious about what Lily will think of the festivities. We'll see. I am wishing that I was able to spend the day with my own parents. My mom is never far from my thoughts on a daily basis and thank goodness she is just a phone call away.
Whatever your Easter plans may be I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating with your families!
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by and visit my blog today.

I proudly use Love My Tapes adhesive on all my projects
