I'm home!!! and THANK YOU!!!!

What a trip!! It was so fun, but I'm exhausted!!! The weather was great the first 4 days, then it was cloudy and overcast..but that didn't stop us from hitting the lake!!! We got a few wicked storms at night, but that just made the water warmer!!! I sure missed home, Tim, Brick and Tux!! Brick was so happy to see me, I got a zillion kisses!! I had about 257 emails to check, lots of snail mail, and am now starting to hit the blogs! I have to find my camera, upload 230 pictures I took, and then I will post some!! Glad to be home, and itching to CREATE again soon!!!

Thank you to all who have left comments on my blog while I was away, it was so heart warming to come home and read them gals are the BESTEST!!!! I promise I WILL get back to blogging as soon as I get a good night sleep in my own bed without my 7 year old niece talking in her sleep all night long, and my 4 year old niece screaming out in the middle of the night!! (ACK!!)

Nighty Night!!!

Rainy Day thoughts and a golfer's notebook

Another notebook with Tilda! This image was given to me awhile ago too, but I think I must have her now too!! LOL The paper is Soft Sky Designer Series Paper (SU) & the hydrangea flowers are from Prima (I got them at Michael's...I'm soooo happy they are carrying flowers now!!) I used a storybook alphabet I've had for ages and added stickles to all the rain drops.
Thought I better make a "masculine" notebook & since I had an extra golfer image from the monthly swap, I decided to use him. The paper is from Creative Memories & the blue stripe is actually ON the eh?? I coloured the golfer with my koh-i-noor pencils and gamsol. I didn't add any sentiments cuz you know MEN.....won't use it if it's too girly!!! LOL

Tilda with bluebells

I know the flowers aren't blue bells but they reminded me of the flowers that I used to pick for my Mom when I was little. Out at our cabin, they grew like crazy in the hills around us. We used to go for walks and I'd bring her back a bunch of blue bells and a bunch of Black Eyed Susans. She still has the ugly white plastic vase that she used to put them!!! The card base is Bashful Blue, the DP is Basic Grey (I think) and the ribbon is a scrap piece of baby blue. I coloured her with prismas and gamsol.

Another Rosy Tilda

Another card for the monthly swap I explained in the last post - I should have just posted these together...ahhh well!!!! Same paper, same DP, same stamp. I added Old Olive polytwill ribbon to a piece of Hodgepodge hardware, stamped the word Cherish and attached it. She is coloured with prismas and gamsol as well!!

If all posts go as planned, I am laying on the beach in Sunny British Columbia enjoying a cold bevvy and playing with my nieces and nephews in the water!!! Wheeee!!!!
