I finally had a chance to really use one the newer Pezadoodle stamp sets to it’s fullest – these is the Picnicin Ladybug set.  This set includes the main image, the border on the left, the ice cream cone single stamp used to make the embellie on the bow AND the mini single ice cream cone used to make the background paper (the tiny flower are from the Sprinkled Backgrounds Set).  In addition i used the coordinating ice cream cone skittles that also come in the stamp set!  The border stamp is made so that the skittles and the smaller ice cream cone stamp fit perfectly in between the border images.  all sets can be mixed and matched in this way giving you a lot more options with your Pezadoodle sets!  the top embellie is cut with my cricut using the Stretch Your Imagination cart.


I colored my main image with prismas and gamsol.  i left the flower center in pencil only to give it a bit of a rough look like the flower center would really be.  After coloring i painted some Creative Inspirations shimmer paint on the leaf and flower petals to give them some zing which i hope you can see in my crazy moving picture – it’s so hard to give an adequate picture of the shimmery-ness of these paints.  i am just totally addicted!  i really love that the shading still shows through beautifully!  (oh and she is eating my fave ice cream – shwans lemon frozen yogurt!)


Well today is the first day of school here in northern VA – Trevor starts a new school – he had to transfer to loudoun county high so he could be in NJROTC.  luckily he is already mostly familiar with the school and has made some friends since he was doing football practice all summer and also two leadership special sessions with some of the ROTC students.  however he WILL have to drive in traffic to get there – poor kid!

Pezzy ALSO starts playschool today.  she is at this moment throwing herself on the floor in slow motion wailing because she just asked if she could go to school now and i told her it wasn’t time yet.  when she does her fake drama cry she actually SAYS waahhhhh haaah haaah – hilarious – but a little annoying when you do it every day…….she has been up since 4:30…..kid’s gonna be the death of me i tell ya – good thing she is way too cute for words!!!!!  Daddy got her some goldfish yesterday – she named them swimmer and fin – so funny listening to her talking to them!

well that’s enough from me!  i hope y’all have a FABULOUS day!
