This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE, and Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Very Sage Choc. I think the stampin' Gods are not with me this week. I just can not seem to get it together. Not really happy with my end result today either. I used some more of My Minds Eye - Wild Asparegus dp that seemed to be a close match for sage shadow and matted both with choc chip. A strip of sage shadow matted on choc chip for the straight across panel. I stamped the sentiment from Dad's Day in choc chip on vanilla cs, punch it out using the label punch and popped it up in the center of the squared dp layer.

Sweet Happy Birthday

Well I had a difficult time deciding on what to do with today's colors but I guess that is why it is called COLOR CHALLENGE. This weeks colors were Vanilla, Choc Chip, and Sage Shadow. I recently received my Inkadinkado Sweet Bithday set with a variety of cupcakes so I thought this was the perfect time to ink'em up. I mean choc and cup cakes do go togethere don't they? LOL.My image was stamped on vanilla with choc chip twice. One was cut in a circle to be matted on Giga Circle scallop choc chip stamped with Gina K circle using Vanilla Craft Ink. I cut just the top part off from the other image applied stickles and popped it up. I used Beate's weekend sketch #49 as my layout. The sentiment is 2 of the ones from Fancy Flexible Phrases which I love especially when I have limited space to work with like on this one. My choc chip panel was embossed using Cuttlebug Birthday folder. I am not sure I like this but I finished it.

Spotlight Happy Birthday

I had a wonderful Memorial Day, both my girls came over with all of thier children and we did the chillin' and grillin' thing. Jessie grilled us up some wonderful bergers, hot dogs, and sausage and I fixed some English Pea Salad, french fries and baked beans. THEN we got in the pool for the 1st time this year. I am a little red but it was fun. Even little Jaylen got his feet wet, he didn't like it but he will grow to love it just like the others did. His mom still could not get in yet so that was a bumber but she will be able to. He is only 2 weeks old after all. Now onto todays project which I did after everyone had left.
This is for today's TECHNQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Take Three. We were to back up to 1-10 on the TLC, CC, & SC and pick one from each challenge.I chose to use the TLC06 - Spotlight for my technique choice, CC06-Rose Red & Choc Chip for my color combo. and SC09for my layout.My image is stamped in chocolate chip on white then inked using the SU Markers Rose Red & Certainly Celery then stamped and framed using Making Memories tags. The sentiment is from Close To My Heart and stamped in rose red on white then matted on rose red.

6in1 HB Mr. Sealife Double Pocket Bag

Oh Wow I have to tell you about last night. I started pm's with a SCS several months ago and found that she along with 3 other co-workers did this annual "STAMP RETREAT TO THE BEACH" and would be coming near me in May. So plans set up and followed through last night. We meet at Austin's Cattle Club in Valdosta for a mea then shopping. You can not get 6 stampers together without scoping out the scrapbook/craft stores. LOL. We hit Michaels and Hobby Lobby both. We all had such a wonderful time. Sad news is I forgot my camera, then on the way home the lights came on that my cell phone has a camera. :( . Oh well I have my memories and we discussed the possibility of meeting in Macon one weekend for a short get together so I will make sure I am prepared next time, unless I forget! OK onto today's project.
I just can not make enough of these kewl bags. I love them and so in an attempt to remain "Queen" I have all 6 challenges for this week in this little bag.

I colored the rest with prismacolor pencils then blended with gamsol cut the frame of the image out and matted on night of navy with distressed edges. I decided panel 2 was a perfect place to hold my sentiment stamped in night of navy on certainly celery. I used another sheet of My Minds Eye "Wild Asperagus" dp for the bag. I punch out some whole punches in certainly celery and bashful blue for faux brads. I am giving this to my FIL who loves to fish as much as me and dh does.

I paper pieced the skirt, cut the hand out and popped it up on top of some twine curled where the rope is in the hand on the image. the ground was colored w/watercolor pencils and blended. The handles were made with 3 different strands of colored twine braided and tied in a knot to secure. I punched out 3/4 cicle punches to use as faux brads.

Well I finally got to take the new family to their home at 11:30pm then drive myself home. Got to bed at 12:30am. The OB doc came and said "You may go home today" at 9am, they knew Monday she wanted him circumcized and that he had to wee wee afterwards before she could take him home. They could/should have done the circ Tuesday evening but waited until the day of discharge to do it so at 1:30pm they came to get him then brought him back at 1:40pm bc doc had to go to OR. Came back in around 2:30 and finally it was done. We watched that diaper for a blue stain unitl 10pm when she finally gave in and said "I guess go get us something to eat, it don't look like we are going anywhere anytime soon". My heart was breaking for my baby and her baby, he was fussy when awake, I am sure it hurt. I changed a nasty diaper around 5:30pm that still had a yellow strip so we thought "not yet". We tried everything from air exposure to feeding 2 bottles, to a warm rag around his hands, feet and belly. A 9:30pm the nurses camae and got him to see if they could help, they needed her room. No luck by 10pm and the pediatrician was called who said "Now he for sure can not go until he pp's but call me at 12am if he still has not voided" so my baby left to walk around outside with her sister to keep from going stir crazy any more than she already was. When we came back upstairs the nurse had a thumbs up because they went through the dirty diapers and found the nasty one with a small amt but definite blue stain. Frustrated me because the nurse could have told use to keep any diapers out to watch for the strip to turn after the changing. We expected immediate staining but the amount was so small it took a llittle bit for it to show. GGGGRRRRRRRR. Anyway it seems all is well and they are home. Now onto today's dissaster. LOL
I probably should have gotten up and just gone to work bc I am NOT happy with this. Sitting around in a hospital room all day has zapped me. LOL. This is for today's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE - Inchies, Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE, Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Ruby Soft Pumpkin, and Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE.Both the flower and butterfly were stamped on watercolor paper with versamark ,heat embossed with gold EP and colored with SU Watercolor crayons. I used a butterfly image I got from Michaels for my inch image. Hope the challenge police don't get me for using a 1 inch image.

The sentiment is stamped in ruby red and the daisy in pumpkin pie then colored w/rr marker and a tiny bling in the center to add some zing. Think fast and looking downstairs, going upstairs to create and trusting memory is not good for an old lady with a short memory. My dp panel of soft sky is a bit too narrow but gotta go so I loaded anyway. Sorry Amy but thanks for giving Rox a break for this week. We are loosing a very valuable employee at work and I am going to miss her tremendously so I will be giving this to her before she leaves us. sniff sniff
