The summer months are finally here!!



It seems like yesterday that I was making hot chocolate for the kids and warming up after sledding in the snow. Where does the time go? This past weekend the hubs and I started shopping and for our family vacation. I have to give a shout out to the container store, (one of my favorite places to shop!!) . We picked up some pack-it Folders by Eagle Creek. I have to say that they really do work! We came home and I eagerly ran up stairs and emptied Mikes shirt drawer and put it to the test! I can't wait to try these puppys out when I pack everything. I'll let you know how it all goes! I also picked up 2 pairs of sunglasses. Both for $10.00 each. The one pair is for driving and originally cost $60.00.

I did manage to get some cards made and I finished my nieces summer dress. Here are some pictures.

Products that were used to make these little cards are from Close to my Heart.

The "frosting" has been popped up using 3-D Foam Squares

Liquid glass and Prisma Glitter was used on the "wrapper".

Each cupcake was stamped more than once with one kept whole as a base to "build" on.

I then cut each piece of the wrapper and the frosting.

Applied the liquid glass and glitter.

The stamp sets used are:

Good Times and Celebration Bouquet

I believe that these would make great invitations too!

Cupcake Delight

Chocolate frosted cupcake card

Pink Frosting Inspired by Dana!

(she loves white cupcakes with pink frosting)

Katie's Dress

This is the back of her dress with Purple ladybugs for buttons.
Her mommy loves ladybugs.

Matthew went to an Ice Skating Birthday Party on Friday evening and had a great time but unfortunately he now has a beautiful shiner on his right eye. I don't have a picture yet but will have it tonight to post. he does really well on the ice considering that it was his second time. I have tried to talk him into taking lessons (to ease my mind as a worried mother when he is out there) so that he will be able to "keep up" with his friends, but he just doesn't want to. He feels as though he knows how to skate. lol
Make today a great day!!!!
