For Ms.Melinda, Kylie's Montessori teacher. She's done a lot for Kylie, so I wanted to make her something special for Easter. It sure felt good making projects again!

It's That Time of Year Again...

I love, Love, love this time of year; fall is by far my favorite season. Not only do I get a break from the Texas heat but fall also means its time to heat up the kiln! I have been looking for this santa (the last, in a set of three) for over a year, so when I finally saw it I had to pick it up! Last year I painted the other two in the set a red, and artichoke green. This year I wanted a navy santa, so here he is! I really wish you could tell but the "fur" trim is super sparkly and for his coat I dry brushed a lighter blue over the navy so it looks really multi dimensional.

New Monkey

So, I told myself, "self, you need to use up all that ugly tangerine tango you just purchased!" well as you can see, I barely used it lol. Hopefully it will grow on me, I wasn't a big fan of groovy guava at first but now its one of my favs. The bottom picture is to show how I "peeled" the banana.

Bella Rose

My new SU order FINALLY showed up yesterday-I ordered it on July 1st! I will say that I love pink pirouette and HATE the tangerine color. SU's new DSP, bella rose, is so beautiful. That's the paper I used for this card. I colored Gardenia gardenthumb with copics.

Bettina Buttercup and Some Fourth of July Picts..

So first my card then onto last night :) I really wanted some "alone craft time" so I decided to lock myself up in the office and do some coloring. The little lady's name is Bettina Buttercream and I colored her in with copics. After I colored her I layerd her onto a polka dotted perfectly pomegranate rectangle, btw all the dsp used for this card is SU's cutie pie line. The card base is a 4.5x4.5 square of bashful blue.

We started off the day by attending the "Arlington's Fourth of July Parade"

After coming home, eating, and swimming we headed off to the fireworks store (we ended up going three times)

This was taken on our final trip..

This is when we found out that we wasted all that money on sparklers (Kylie was deathly afraid)

My cousin Ashlea and Kyle shooting off Roman Candles..

One of the waterfalls...

We ended up shooting of fireworks for almost two hours, It was awesome!

And The ROckets Red Glare...

So Kylie started her first day at day care today :/ I'm excited for her but I really hate being away from her. In her absences I was able to create this Fourth of July album. I used the Jane Austen font for the cover. The chipboard star is SU's; after I painted it white I used Stampendous' star dust embossing powder to make it shine :) The pattern paper is by rusty pickle.
