Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was sunny and bright and that you enjoyed yourselves. Summer is flying by! Today is my baby’s birthday……………..he turns 5 today. I cannot believe it. My sweet little baby boy has grown up too fast.
He woke up to balloons at the end of his bed and tied to them were Woody and Buzz Lightyear. If you have little boys then you know exactly who I am talking about! His brothers were so sweet and they also had little things for him…….the staples of childhood………..playdough, bubbles and little toy cars. His smiles warmed our hearts!
Stamps & Create’s product spotlight this week is Sweet November stamps! They are my new addiction! LOL! All Sweet November stamps will be on sale for 25% off through Sunday, August 1st. Get yours now before they fly off the shelf! Lacey made sure to restock them all but they sell out fast!
I used my Bind-it-all to create a 6x6 book for myself. I created a little pocket for the inside front cover and the book is filled with Neenah Solar Crest cardstock and I will use this to keep all my copic color combos at hand. Once I work on it, I will show you what I mean! I decided to use Shimmer Redkelp on the cover and created what I hope is an ocean feel. I had to make sure that any embellishment that I added was relatively flat so that it wouldn’t interfere with actually using the little book!

The last few weeks, I have been using a different paper. It is Cryogen White Iridescent and I got mine at Paper Temptress. It has this gorgeous subtle shimmer worked right into the paper and I LOVE the effect it gives! You can see it in this picture above.
Lacey is on a much deserved vacation until July 31st so orders will go out after her return on Aug 2nd. However, all orders received from Friday, July 23rd-Aug 1st will be entered into a special drawing for a $25.00 gift certificate (this is separate from the regular July Customer Rewards drawing - so if you order during this time, you will actually be entered into both drawings)!!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to catch up on all my emails and comments later today!
