An Altered Item...

I'm posting Lgirl's first day of school picture & the backpack I altered for her. I blurred out her name on the back pack. I stamped it in white stazon and added some Daisies cut with my big shot onto white felt.

One of the buttons says Girl Power. There's also a kitty button tied onto one of the zipper pulls. She loved it and I'm so glad! The one she had from last year (that we paid $15 for) didn't last past last year. The material on the piping wore off and it looked bad! This one I purchased for $1.00 when Wally World Clearanced it... can't beat that! :)

Have a GREAT day... it's a rainy day here. I hope the sun tries to peek thru!

Cincinnati Regionals

was AWESOME!! I really had a GREAT time with Libby, Melissa & Nena. I got my picture taken with Shelli Gardner & Jill Cochran (I'm sure I misspelled it. Sorry Jill!!).

I also spotted Connie Babcock and Jenn Diercks who are two demo's that I stalk regularly. I think I scared Jenn... don't think she's used to the likes of me lol.

We did some very cute make & takes and learned a bunch of stuff. Carrie C. talked about how to use colors w/the color wheel. That was really cool. I will have to make a color wheel of my own! We also learned some Workshop WOWS from local (Midwest area) demonstrators. All were GREAT!

Here's an picture of the card I did to go with the previously posted Diaper Cake... it had to match of course!!

I'mmmm Baaaacccckkkk!

Hi Everyone,
Okay I'm trying to make a comeback RIGHT before going to the SU Regional Event in Cincinnati this Saturday! I'm sooo excited. I'm going with a Stamp Club member, Libby, one of my downlines, Melissa S. and her mum Nena! Should be a stampin' good time!

We'll be heading down tomorrow afternoon, hoping to make it to the Splitcoast Stampers dinner at Rock Bottom Brewery at 4:30pm. We're going to be late but better late than never! hehe

Here's a Diaper Cake I made for a friend, Lindsay. LOVE it! I think it turned out super. I love the colors, but then again, who doesn't love pink & brown?

Wish me luck tomorrow, I'll be taking Bourbon into school tomorrow for Lgirl's Show & Tell! hhahahah This should be a lot of fun! hehe

Today was Gman's FIRST day of preschool. He did pretty well. I was impressed. He did have his screaming fit in the house saying how he didn't want to go to 'Tool' but then I gave him a choice. He could either go to Kellie's and be left there to play with a BABY (Kya's a cutie pie!) or he could go to school & play with other kiddos his age. He said, "Okay mom, I'll go to tool. But could you come and get me in 5 minutes?"

Is that not too cute?! hehe I told him it would take more than 5 minutes to get to my appointment. He had a great time and a lot of fun. So let's keep our fingers crossed for next Thursday & Friday! woo hoo!
