Hello friend and some real beauties!

Hello! I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend! We have had a very full, but very nice weekend so far! We were on the soccer field at 8am yesterday...brrrrrrr!!!!! It was an awesome game though! We won 2-1 and all of the kids played really great! Gotta love that!

Then I had my monthly SU! demo meeting! It is always so nice to get together with this group of ladies! They are a lot of fun and there is so much talent in the group! I have the cutest project from the meeting to share with you tomorrow! For now though I have some other fun things to share!

This is a card that I made for a very sweet friend! I used the Top Note die and the Polka Dot embossing folder. These are two of my favorites toys tools! :) I also used the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder. I topped a few of the flowers with the pretty new Pearls from SU! Lots of textures on the card to give it interest!

The deets:

Stamps: Water Color Trio
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White
Ink: Wild Wasabi
Extras: Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder and  Pearls

   This is a bag topper minus its bag!  I did not have a project in mind when I put this together!  I was just playing with some of the scraps on my table and this came together!  It will grow up to top a bag one day soon though! :) It  uses the same colors as above plus the Scallop Circle, 2 Step Bird and Three Flower punches.  Funny how something so simple can require so many toys  tools!

  This next photo is of my oldest daughter!  She was out snapping pictures of our driveway (which is just screaming Fall right now!!) and took a self portrait!  Isn't she beautiful?!

   Finally, here are a couple of the photos she snapped of our driveway:

I happen to think she has a great eye for photography!  It is amazing to me how some people see the world through different eyes!  She gets her talent from my amazing mom who happens to be the WORLD'S BEST photographer!

   Ok, well I have about a ba-zillion things to do today so I am off!  I hope you thoroughly enjoy the rest of the weekend! :)  I will be back tomorrow with an adorable project to share!
