It's fun to color!!!!

I had so much fun with this card! The stamp set is called Ms. Gardener from Close To My Heart
...she is so cute. I colored her with Close To My Heart inks and blending pen....who said coloring was just for kids??? :-) Next I have a couple of cards using the You Rock stamp set and Whoops A Daisy paper. Love these colors!!!
I rocked and rolled the guitar stamp.

A trip to the circus

Yahoo, I won 4 tickets to the circus!!!!!! 4 tickets in the sky suite...that was so cool! We had our personal "apartment" in the sky! We had our own personal attendant and even our own washroom! LOL! Hey, that's important with 2 children! ;-)
Here is Theo waiting for the circus to you can see we are very high up BUT the suites are pushed out a bit and you almost feel like your right above centre ice, such a fantastic view!
This was my favorite act. This cowboy had two very well trained horses, he called them both MUSTANG! He was so funny! I could not believe how well trained those two horses were! The kids favorite, the elephant...I couldn't help but feel sorry for it. The fabulous WYNN family....DAREDEVILS! WOW!!!! There was so much more, I took 321 pictures, but I thought I might lose your interest if I shared them all! ha ha!!! And a glimpse of our ride home.....a spring storm hit why we were enjoying the circus.....the usual 3 hour drive home, took us almost 5 hours......we could not go more that 60-80 km/hr the entire way.

Back from Scraptacular...with layouts! :-)

HOLLYWOOD was the theme for Scraptacular! What a blast!!!! 3 days of scrapbooking with my friends was sooooo mcuh fun! I also was able to take a Friends acrylic album class, which turned out so nice!!! The week end was full of door prizes and challenges, so well organized! I am going back next year!

A double pager, I used a Tim Holtz mask for the letter. The pp is Crate paper - Lemongrass. Also used some glimmer mist to grunge it up a bit. This page was done for a challenge. We had one hour to complete the layout. We were given a movie quote and had to use that quote on a layout. My quote was from Titanic : "A Woman's Heart Is A Deep Ocean Of Secrets". This was quite difficult as we did not know what quote we were going to get. I used October Afternoon pp , Thicker Letters, and a flower from Prima (don't you love that flower). This next page was gone for the Paprazzi challenge. The challenge was to use 5 photos on a page! We had one hour to complete it. I used paper from Stampin' Up (Thanks Kathy) and Doodlebug flocked letters.
This layout was not done for a challenge, but it is the outfit I walked the "Red Carpet" with! HA HA! That was so much fun! I used Making Memories pp, a Heidi Swapp clock transparency, Doodlebug flocked letters and again, a Prima flower.

Ok, this next page was done for a challenge. We had to complete a layout in a hour with all the materials they supplied for us.
