First post for Tammy's Scrapin Corner and I'm excited :)

This morning I am so excited to announce that I will be a part of the great design team over at Tammy's Scrapin Corner! I couldn't be more excited to be a part of this team. Everyone has been so welcoming and helpful! So head on over for the next challenge! This week is Challenge #19 "Summertime".

Here is my card:

The image is from the wonderful Bugaboo Stamps and it is Flamingo-Surf board. I thought he was all Summertime!

I used all scraps from my stash, buttons including the peace sign.. I used Butterscotch and Cranberry Alcohol Inks on the peace sign so it wasn't all yellow across. The ribbon is from my stash as well. I used Ice Stickles on the water and the sun. I used the following Copics to color him:

Flamingo: Copic R22 and R20, N7, C6, N4, BG18
Water: Copic B00 and B02
Surfboard: Copic R29, R27, YR18, YR15, Y35, 100, N7, N4


This weekend was a busy weekend. I feel like I ran ran ran all around town and didn't get much of anything done. Friday was full of errands and shopping (yuck!). One of the bras I got ripped on the seam right down the middle front. So, I have that in the vehicle so I can stop there on the way home tomorrow. Saturday was the class at Archiver's and then down to Atlanta to hang out with my sister.. which I really wish I hadn't done. Today was a little bit of running around. I decided to not do a lot of grocery shopping since we are going down there. I don't want to be carting a bunch of groceries. Now the weekend is gone again and here we are faced with Monday again.

This is going to be an odd week for me. My sister and mother fly out to France on Tuesday. They are going to spend a week there. Tuesday evening I will have to pack everyone up... dog included and head to my sisters in Atlanta. We will be staying there for the week. My sister has a house and a pool.. will be nice not to be in this apartment. And! I will be able to go home after work each night and hop in the pool! Woot! LOL For the next couple of days I need to pack up what I need.. that includes supplies for some cards that need to be done. I will probably spend some time tomorrow planning out what I'm going to make so I can pack up some things. I have my images printed that absolutely HAVE to be finished! Other than that we will just have to see. It will be nice to be away, but I am such a home body and I like to be here with my things and .. well.. I just don't like to be away from home. So we will see how long this lasts LOL I just have to think of it as a somewhat kinda sorta vacation! But! to be away from desktop and all my supplies *GASP* I don't know! We will just have to wait and see...
