Atlantic Hearts Sketch #140

Okay, so just one more post for 2015! :D I couldn't resist!

I'm entering this sketch today from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge as a fun little end of year page! I love it! It is my fifth child's First Christmas, and I love how the photos from his photoshoot turned out! 

I picked up a gold Recollections paper pack from Michaels at the beginning of December and the gold backdrop works well with the shine! (I love shiny things!) The sentiment is from a Project Life pack (and we all know how I love to keep packaging right? *insert sarcasm*) 

Here it is!

~happy crafting and a many blessings and adventures in the New Year!~

Creative Corner Challenges - Must Have 3 Embellishments

Hi all! This challenge is a super fun one! Anything goes as long as you have 3 Embellies in your work! AND?! We are sponsored by A Day for Daisies!! Love it!

Head over to Creative Corner Challenges to check it out! 

My digital stamp can be found here at A Day For Daisies! I played around with my watercolor pencil crayons from Close to My Heart. I've never actually used a paintbrush with them, but I really like how it turned out! I did the drippy look on purpose! {incase you were wondering!} I free handed the "You're my cuppa tea" using the Riesling font from Dafont as reference. I added Liquid Pearls to the hearts on the cup; Tim Holtz stickles on the wings...and 3 glitter brads as my embellies. I had an extra 8x10" frame kicking around and thought it would be perfect for displaying this piece! I think I will be making more pieces like this! I'm so in love with this stamp! Thank you ADFD!

Here is my challenge for this week!

Enjoy and have a super weekend!

Week in the Life - Day 7 | My Sunday

I've made it to the end of this new found love! Thank you so much Ali Edwards for putting this together! I've enjoyed making new friends and falling in love with my DSLR all over again! I have loved documenting my life this way....real life!

Here is my Sunday!

Getting ready for our big anniversary date. Ok so the whole day was a date!
12 years! From morning to night it was spend together! Travelling, eating, was wonderful!

My little ham! He's so happy when he can sit and view the world around him!

I feel so good today! It helps that I like to dress
up and feel pretty! 

My hubby surprised me with a BBQ for our anniversary!
(Disclosure: I did ask for one! I wanted one for our camper at the campsite!)

Stopped in Kamsack, SK for a few photos
at this beautiful brick wall! And of course
a few smooches!

This was a fun time getting up this hill!
It was a hike through thistles and weeds!
I even saw a few wild roses!

Lunch! We stopped in at Good Spirit Lake
Golf Course restaurant! It was delish!

I found this Point of Interest last year, and thought I'd revisit it
this time around!

I love this man! 

Wrapped up our anniversary with supper at Mr. Mikes.
I indulged in this fab drink called the Pink Lady!

It has been a very good week. And I am so happy that I stumbled across the amazing group on Facebook. So happy with my photos! I sent mine off to the printers this morning and even snagged a 50% coupon code from! BONUS! Once again thank you Ali Edwards for putting this together. So appreciate it! 

When my album is all put together I will write about it! Thanks for reading!
