Fun in the Sun

At the beginning of summer last year I purchased this blow up water slide for the kids. I got it off and it was only around $200 with free shipping to the local store and I just picked it up. I got it very early in the season and it's a good thing because they sold out when I went and checked again only a week or so after I ordered mine. This was a great investment and the kids used it a lot. This was the first day we put it up so
I had to take pictures of them playing. The paper I used is called Kaleidoscope and it's an old line of paper I had but I had the matching embellishments too so it made for a very easy LO. I only had to find a few more letters to spell out the title and that was it. This is kind of plain for me because I didn't use any ribbon, flowers, brads or bling. This summer I will be taking lots of pictures of them playing in our new pool. I'm so excited I can't wait for the warm weather! Have a great weekend everyone.

Chalk Full of Fun

These are not colors I would have normally put together but I like how it turned out. This was a challenge in one of my CafeMom groups to use these colors and listed some of the products that had to be used. That's when I like a challenge when well, it actually is a challenge for me and this was.
The kids were playing in the water outside then started playing with the chalk. They found out that if you add the water to the chalk on the sidewalk it spreads real easy. Then one of them and I'm guessing it was Kaitlyn started painting themselves. They all pitched in and helped cover each other. It did wash off but Kaitlyn had a slight pink color to her cheeks for a day or so but they had fun and I got some great pictures to scrap from it.

Isn't Changito so cute all bundled up?!! I made these for a swap over on CafeMom. I found this stamp at Hobby Lobby and bought it with my 40% off coupon. I'm really starting to fall for this little guy. I colored the hat, scarf, gloves and boots with Copics. The silver on his hat, boots and the snow flakes is Stickles.

Thank you - Teachabella

I did this card in a sketch challenge in a group on CafeMom group. We were to follow the sketch to a T. That was a little harder to do than I thought it would be. I really like the look of buttons but don't seem to use them very often. I do like how it turned out though. The stamp is Teachabella from Stamping Bella. The paper is from My Minds Eye but I don't remember the name of the line. I used colored pencils to color the image. I will be giving this to one of the kids teachers when we have teacher appreciation day at school this spring.
