road trip with grandma

some other older photos came out and got used this last weekend.
my mother took the girls to see my aunt and uncle a year or so ago, they had so much fun that weekend!
saw this super cute idea using the SU "abc" wheel to make a road, and got to try it! used SU Bblack CS & Wwhite craft ink w/ the wheel to make my 'road' and used the truck from the SU set "loads of love". i used the girl from the SU "loads of love accessories" to make my little ladies. i colored their shirts the same color as my mom and the girls were wearing in the photos to make them more recognizable. coloring was done with colored pencils and OMS. since my girls are still young, i printed out a map and directions using map quest and used it in the page also.
have a great day!

oh!!!!!! trivia! last question was, "there were a bunch of stars in 'reality bites', can you name 4 of them?" here are the popular ones: wynona ryder, ethan hawke, ben stiller, janeane garafalo, and steve zahn.

current trivia question: from the movie 'the rocky horror picture show', what were the names of the characters played by tim curry & susan sarandon?
have fun!

picnic at the park

finally got a couple of minutes to spend with some old photos and here's the outcome.

we went to a local park to have a picnic a year or so ago. we got some sandwiches from arby's for our lunch, took some bread to feed the ducks, played on the toys, went fishing, and d'Ete even found a "boy" friend!

all paper is DCWV, used CB for diecut circles. ribbon pulls on top right photo for journaling panel.

sorry i've been pretty much non-exsistant lately. well, for over a month now. i can't believe i'm busier now than during this last holiday season! hawaii in less than a month!

scalloped birthday girl

made this card for my friends birthday. since she's a fellow stamper, i had to make it SUPER cute! i love it and think she did too!

paper- SU carousel notes (from occasions mini), Cchip & Vvanilla. DP is from clearance pile from local scrap store
ink- SU Cchip, jim holtz walnut stain distress ink
stamps- SU 'she's all that' (from occasions mini)
accessories- wide brown ribbon ($1 michaels), SU Ccelery ribbon, silver brads, small circle punch, silk flower (thanks to my sister, karyn!! i love them!!!)

so we found this awesome 'fun center' and took the girls for a day of fun. we went bowling, the carousel was out of order so we'll do that next time, there was laser tag, a HUGE arcade with an indoor 'big toy' (as the girls call it) and 2 restaurants! we had such a fun time!

the answer to the last trivia question ("what was the name of the unsuccessful sheriff in smokey and the bandit?") is sheriff beuford t. justice. congrats to linda, doverdi, and scrapmomof2 who all got this question correct!

ready for a new question? here it is! there were a bunch of stars in "reality bites". can you name 4 of them? have fun!
