The Presley Family

Even though I have been a bit under the weather lately and all the kids have been passing it around and then around again...I did manage to get out Sunday afternoon and meet my wonderful friend Jenn and her Family at one of out local parks to do a Family Photo Shoot. Jenn is actually a talented photographer, however she wanted to actually be in her family portraits so, I was the photographer she chose to help her get the shots she wanted. They were so fun to work with.

KWernerDesign Challenge

K Werner Design Challenge!! I love her Inspiration Picture! Cute colors!!

This card might be too simple, I didn't realize the deadline was today at 7, I had about 20 minutes to make it, take picture, crop it and up load! Whew! I barely made it!! I had to meet Jenn and Bekki at Starbucks at 6:30!!

Cardinal without Red

I finally attempted to use this beautiful cardinal stamp set from Stampin' Up! I decided to not go the traditional "Red" route!! Instead, I chose to heat emboss Mr. Cardinal in Basic Black on Very Vanilla with accents of Kiwi Kiss and Pink Pirouette!!
