A New PIP Challenge!!

Hooray! Another week and another chance to win at PIP Challenges! Challenge #1716 is anything goes  and our sponsor this week is Sasayaki Glitter

https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/SasayakiGlitterLots of great digital images available, just click the picture to follow the link. 

To remove the snowflakes I selected the freehand painting
tool, selected white and colored over each snowflake.
This digi image was generously donated to me by Sasayaki Glitter to demonstrate for you. I went pretty straight forward with it. Printing on regular white cardstock & coloring it. I did remove the snow flakes from her PJ top since I wanted to make more of a spring flavored project.


On finding this quote I knew it would be a great for an under the weather kid who is home or sick in bed. I think wrapping it inside a book will make an uplifting gift!! I simply added it to the stamp image as I was sizing it for print on a Word Doc.

I didn't do much to the back, a simple sentiment and room for a quick love note!!  Some wonderful beads, ribbon and lace to poke out of the book!  I love drippy tassels 🌠


             



              

Easter Blessings to You!

🐰Happy Easter.  He is risen indeed!!!  Have a wonderful day 💮

Prom 2017

💗Prom!! Just the word can instill dread in parents and send my kids shaking with excitement!!  This is my middle daughter's Junior year.  Her brother is a Freshman and in our secluded mountain town the whole county celebrates Prom with 1 dance location on one night ~ offering it to students from Freshman to Senior grades & 3+ schools.  (sometimes the turnout is still small!)
Georgia invited her best friend over to get ready with "us" and it sounded like we had 10 kids in the house and not just 3!!!


How I love these kids!! As the grown up, there were so many things that I saw humor in ~ & of course, I really wanted to share the chuckles with all of you!!


So First Up we have the girls getting ready:

Here is Jacob getting ready: 

He had his cloths laid out & now it was just a matter of waiting!!!!! 


Georgia decided she needed to document everything, including Jacob making his tie look good,

and of course proof that their breath was minty fresh!

(are you chuckling yet? Even now I'm still getting the giggles over it!!)


They danced like fiends!!! It turns out the girls didn't sit down once during the whole night!  When Mike & I showed up at the end of the dance kids were going by us saying "your kids are having way too much fun!" 

It was great!  They were still grinning the next morning at breakfast: (only 5 hrs of sleep. . . Church & Georgia was singing in the Palm Sunday Cantata 💗)


We got home from church about 1pm and here's my reward:



So much for the nap I had been dreaming of!! Oh, & one more thing;

What's this you ask?  It is one more glass, since Jacob wasn't sure which of the 14 they'd used was his!  I especially thought it was funny given the title of the book it was left by!!!!

Well, Blessings to you friends.  Hope you got a little smile from this!  I think I might print it out & slide it into their baby books - maybe later . . .
ps I am the dish washer !
