hurry, weekend!

I’m so glad it’s Wednesday because this weekend is gonna be loads of fun. We are going to have our annual get together for the 4th of July. Family, yummy barbecue, and fireworks makes for a fantabulous time!

In the meantime, I’ve been doing what I do best – – CREATING!

One of my good friends, Michelle, sent me a package filled with Creative Imaginations, and I finally got around to designing with these fun papers. I used one of their sketches for inspiration.

Here’s my rendition of the above sketch:

I love the bright summer colors to that line! Don’t you?! …and because I’ve got leftovers, I plan on creating more with this paper line. ((Thank you again, Michelle, for sending me all of these goodies. I had a lot of fun designing with them.))

It’s true. I’m addicted to the Pazzles. I’ve been using it like no other in my projects; I’m sure you have noticed how much I’ve been talking about it recently! Well, I used it again. I created a layout using some older Crate Paper that I had been hoarding, haha! 😉

I used the Pazzles to cut out my letters and those fun little flower-like diecuts that I turned into weird one-eyed aliens. To make those cute little aliens, just add some of those craft eyes to the center of flowers.

When I finished this layout, I busted up laughing. Who would have thought that flowers make for great aliens?! Not me – that’s for sure!

The month of July is one of the busiest months for me, so the next couple of weeks are going to be crazy (and super fun)! Until then, I plan on working ahead. I will start off by cropping at Scrapbook Depot this afternoon. Hopefully, I’ll get some work done… that is if I don’t socialize too much. 😉

Only a couple more days until the weekend.

    I just love all of your dog layouts. I’m so happy when someone loves their dogs as much as I do. My chocolate lab recently got scratched by something (racoon, possum, ???) to tune of $507. With a giant cone on his head for 10 days, I still have bruises on my legs! I’m so glad that Hilo made a recovery. Anyhoo, also love the flower aliens and immediately thought about a Halloween usage for that number! Thanks!

    • yikes! last year, maui got scratched up by some crazy violent dog! thank goodness for pet insurance. i think right now, without pet insurance, we’d be easily over 10k on medical bills.

      anyway, i’m glad your furbaby recovered from the incident. 🙂 hugs from maui and hilo.

  12. love that sketch and your take on it. Your alien’s are super cute. Ainsley has been far too busy playing to create. lol Keep trying to get her to sit down with me tho. I think we may try again today. She was sick yesterday and I want to keep her quiet today.
