Good Morning !!! Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend!! Here in Central Texas we have still not had any rain, so there be will no fireworks this weekend. It is soooooo hot!! However, we will be going over to a neighbor's house for a barbecue and party! (YAY)

So to celebrate the 4th I have used "CELEBRATE" from the SWEET MEETS SASSY 2 COLLECTION by Victoria Case for SCACD. When you purchase the entire collections there is a bonus of 3 sentiments. I have used one of them. You will want them all. This particular stamp is so versatile.

When I took the picture I was trying to pick up the glitz. There is Stickles around the image, sentiment and the scalloped border. The star buttons are from my stash. The beautiful and versatile DP is BO BUNNY LIBERTY and the beautiful little TRINKET is also from Bo Bunny.
Susana has both of these in stock.

Just another pic to try and show you the paper.

Hope you enjoyed viewing my creation today and if I don't get another post up before the weekend EVERYONE HAVE A WONDERFUL 4TH.

Water Babies

Good Morning! Well, it's hot hot hot here in Texas and with the grandkids here we have been in the heat and water everyday. My other two grandchildren will be here from Alabama either Wed. or Thursday so I will have 6 kids here ages 4-14, but that's okay I only get to see them twice a year.

Now, to the image. Isn't it adorable? I love the little mermaid baby holding the baby seal. It is WATER BABIES from the Carmen Medlin Natural Beauty Collection for SCACD.

The background is a Spellbinder Pendant with a little Stickles applied. There is also some Stickles on her tail. The seawood and shells have Diamond Glaze applied to make them appear more realistic. The beautiful DP is Kaisercraft - Magic Happens and the gorgeous ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

SHOPPING ALERT!!!!! Susana has a really amazing new product in stock VIVA Crystal Gel. Marti has created a couple of fabulous videos showcasing the different ways to use it.

All of you have a wonderful week and thank you so much for stopping by.

Good Morning!! Did all of you have a wonderful and fabulous holiday weekend? My daughter and 4 grandchildren came in this weekend from Colorado and I have been super busy. It is so nice to have them here. Of course, it is swim-swim-swim. They don't get to do that much in Colorado Springs.

Isn't this image serene and calm? It is "Siren's Call" from the Natural Beauty Collection by Carmen Medlin for SCACD.

This beautiful image is colored with Copics and highlighted with Stickles. The background is embossed with Kaisercraft Pearls to look somewhat like waves. The background papers is some I have in my stash forever.

Here is another angle. There is a lot of dimension with the sun and flowers.

The beautiful turquoise rose is a Prima. Susana has these in different colors. The swirls are Maya Road Chipboard accented with Stickles.

I would like to say thank you very much for stopping by. I appreciate all the nice comments and checking out your blogs. Recently, I have found a lot of new blogs
