Swimming Lessons and Babies

These pictures are after her first swimming lesson on her birthday. We came home and opened presents from Bebe and Bear and Unkie J. She loves her new dolls. She is doing really good in her swim lessons. Daddy took her in last week and she was going under water really well and she is such a good little kicker! Tonight is the last one, sadly, but it has been such a great experience.

May Gourmet Rubber Stamps Release!!

Yay for Release Day!! Lovely new set is named Swingin' Spring and so fitting. Also we have some new DT ladies for GRS that are brand spankin' new! Sadly they don't have this kit to show case, but we are so excited that they are joining the team! Welcome Jingle and Arty Carty!
I love this wedding cake and we have a cousing getting married in May, so I knew I wanted to use it. I also used a sketch from SCS CAS166. I stamped the image with Memento and colored it with copics. I added white gems to the cake and gray gems to the scalloped circle around it. The epoxy brad is by MME Lush line. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the rest of the DTs previews of this set!

Clothesline Greetings!

Gourmet Rubber Stamps DT is showing off the new Appetizer Sets today! My card is showcasing Clothesline Greetings. This set also has an adorable baby clothesline and sentiment, which I'm sure you will being seeing it used in the very near future! It's super cute!!! I stamped the summer one on cream cardstock and paper pieced the towel and swimsuits with an Archiver's paper pack called Sunsplashed (all papers are from it). I added a touch of copics "shadow" around the itmes too. Plus a felt sun by Making Memories Summer Fun pack.
Go check out the rest of the DTs creations!

Nina turned 2 ...

a week and a half ago! woops! We celebrated with the Palmer clan on Easter sunday with some yummy brown butter frosted brownies. On her birthday she had her first swim lesson and the next night Rebecca had a birthday party. Saturday we had pizza with extended family staying in Danville and Sunday was Easter, so on Monday our little foursome family celebrated Nina's coming into this world with some Key Lime Cupcakes and a little party on the front lawn complete with silly string and those little bottles with streamers in them. Nina was not a fan of the silly string, but loved the icing, and presents and being with her dad.

Simple Spring Card

Just attached any sentiment! I used the flower stamp from April's Diner Club stamped along the bottom with a pearl embossing powder. I got a matching button and stamped Happy Easter on cream cardstock. Clean and simple look that is easy to mass produce if needed.

Nina's 1st Year Scrapbook

I've been working on. A good thing since she is turning 2 on Thursday! Still have at least 5 pages to go and some calendars to print out. But I'm moving in the right direction at least!
