BAB Onesie

Hi Stampers,

Last summer I decorated some onesie for the stamp fair. . . well just the other day I put Callie Ann into one of them.  She was so cute!

First here's a picture from the original post. You can see the original post HERE and the others I decorated.

Now a picture of Miss Callie Ann. . . She has almost out grown this outfit. . . . who knows. . . maybe #3 will be wearing it next year. :o)

And there she goes. . . it was hard to get a good picture of her, but that's what happens when you have a 14 month old running around. :o)

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello, Doily!

Hi Stampers,

Just a reminder that the mini catalog goes until August 31st, so if you have something on your wish list you'll want to get it before then.  You can view the mini catalog at the top left side of my blog.

ALSO  The deadline for the Super Cute Button Bracelet class is August 30th. . . you can view all of the details HERE. (Please note demos are welcome to attend. . . just sent me an e-mail at georgia@mustainlaw.com for those details.)

Today I'd like to share with you a card made using the stamp Hello, Doily.  Better than the real thing, this intricate doily design comes in all colors since you can stamp it in any of our inks! Use this gorgeous artwork with other coordinating products from our Flirtatious suite.

The stamp was embossed with clear embossing powder then I used a sponge dauber to make it "pop"!

The birthday phrase comes from the Hostess Set, Happiest Birthday Wishes!

Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for stopping by!


p.s.  Before I go I almost forgot to share with you a couple of pictures from the weekend.  My family took a road trip up to "Chicagoland" to see and ride on Thomas the Train!  Even though it rained on us for about 1 1/2 hours we still had a great time!

Here's Blake with Thomas the Train . . . he was excited to wear a rain coat.

And here's our wet family on the train. . . . we all had rain coats, but Rocky was the only one who didn't take his off on the ride.

And here's a picture after the rain came to a stop . . .

Hi Stampers,

Today I'd like to share with you a card sample using the stamp Homemade.  I just love using Chocolate Chip card stock with Pretty in Pink.  The stamp Homemade is perfect with the new Scallop Punch.

I also wanted to share with you a picture of my little guy. . . this is how you look when your face meets the gravel at the playground on the 2nd day of school. :o(

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

Flight of the Butterfly

Hi Stampers,

As I blog today Miss Callie Ann and I are outside on the porch enjoying the wonderful weather.  Blake is at school (the 1st full day) and we are looking forward to a girl's morning.  I'm hoping Blake has a great day at school, as it did not start off very well.  He took a very nasty fall off of the spider web at school face first down into the rocks. . . . it broke my heart. :o(

Today I'd like to share with you a card using the stamp set Flight of the Butterfly.  It is a card my club members made this past month.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Button Bracelet . . .SUPER CUTE!!!

Hi Stampers,

Today I'd like to share with you the button bracelet I made this past week.  It is super cute, and not hard to make once you get your first one done.  For this bracelet I used 30 buttons from Stampin's Up! bright family.  You can make two bracelets from one package of buttons.

And here's how they turned out.

Here is a smaller version I made for Callie Ann.  I tired to take a picture with it on her, but she did not want to sit still.

Let me know if you are interested in attending a class to make the button bracelets. . . I would love to put that on my calendar.

If you have any questions, please ask!

Thanks for stopping by!

Family Update

Hi Stampers,

I feel so bad that I can't blog more often, but family comes first.  Today I'd like to just give you a little family updated. 

Tuesday my oldest child, Blake starts kindergarten.  He is so very excited and LOVES his Scooby Doo Lunch box. . . it's the Mystery Machine, and it is pretty awesome.  It does not seem possible that he is going to be in grade school.  I'm sure before I know it he'll be entering his senior year. . . . sniff . . . sniff! I better get started on those scrapbooks for his graduation open house. LOL!

Little Miss Callie Ann is now 14 months old and into EVERYTHING!!!  She also LOVES to climb.  It is a daily event to take her down from the dinning room table, as she's pulled out a chair and is standing on the table.  I did bring up a little tykes slide, in hopes of turning all of her attention to climbing on that.  Sometimes it works, and other times the table is where you'll find her.

Just this past week I took the kids to Niabi Zoo for the morning.  We had a nice cool day for it and the animals were out and the lions were roaring!  Here are a few of pictures from our outting!

I have exciting news!!!  Next February Callie Ann will no longer be the baby of the family. . . #3 is due February 15th!  There are LOTS of things that we need to get figured out before then. . . but I keep telling myself we have time. :o)

Thanks for taking time to read about my children. . . Rocky and I think they are pretty special!

~ Georgia

P.S.  As you can see from my post a couple of days ago I'm starting a Marker Club, let me know if you are interested.  I also have plans to start a scrapbook club,  which will meet once a month at my home to make a two page 12x12 layout.  Details will follow soon!
