april showers...pp#29

hi tracey, momma, friends old and new!

today at the paper plunge#29, we are creating april showers...for babies and brides that is!!  with all of the young women i work with, i am bound to need a baby shower card before long!  here's what i did:





stamps:  zoo babies
ink:  stazon black, baked brown sugar
paper:  baked brown sugar, whisper white, daffodil delight, regal designer series paper
extras:  ribbon and frayed burlap, polka dot ef, finishing touches edgelits, my big brother's homemade bow maker

i also entered this card in a sketch challenge from the challenge#29.  it was very simple to use...classic!



i'm sitting here right now with my sister-in-law, stacy, and her daughter, hailey.  they are both having so much fun tangling their own pens while we listen to spa music.  feeling very zen.  feeling very blessed.  these two lovely girlies are so wonderful and i'm so happy i married into their family.  

hailey can only be described as sunshine...she follows her own drummer constantly...and it takes her to some fun places!  i think she has been around this meatball planet before...an old soul.  a wonderful little girl.  

i sometimes  forget i have only known stacy for 8 years...i think our true unconditional connection makes us soul sistas!  i am so grateful for her friendship!  i love our time together...laughing, talking, indulging, philosophizing, dancing in the middle of the living room...and tomorrow we are even going to try the octopus challenge at hoffman's ice cream-8 scoops, 8 toppings in 8 minutes!  cross your fingers!  i really want the tee shirt!!

sometimes being a sister is better than being a princess.

thank you for stopping by-
i appreciate you.

until next time-
peace be with you
