Something Blue for Scrap Our Stash

Wow, I can't believe it it is already Wednesday! This week is rushing by. It has started to turn into summer here in Las Vegas and we have temperatures in the 100's all week. I took the kids out for lunch and shopping today. Every time we got back in the car it was like getting into an hot oven. Really miserable. But we still had a fun day.

I have been trying to get things organized for our drive to Oklahoma in a few days. I will be taking my 3 older kids, my dogs and my bird in my RV. There is a lot to get organized! It makes me tired just thinking about it! LOL

I have also been trying to get all of my DT posts ready to go before I leave for Oklahoma because shortly after arriving in Oklahoma my hubby and I are going on vacation together. We are leaving the kids with the grandparents and taking an adults only vacation. I can't wait! But it does mean I have a ton of stuff to get ready.

I will get it done soon enough. No worries.

I want to share a layout I started at The Color Connection Tour in CA and finished up here at home. I love this new resist paper from Pink Paislee. They were kind enough to let us use paper that hasn't come out yet!! It was a cream color to start and I used some distress ink to color it that blue color. I felt like with this monochromatic layout a black and white photo would really work best. It is a photo of my grandparents. (I sure miss them) They also gave us a ton of gorgeous embellies to use. I loved the ribbon and bling the most!! Isn't it yummy?

What do you think of my layout?? Like it? I made it for the June Challenge at Scrap Our Stash which is "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue". You can use any or all of the prompts. (I went with "something blue" obviously. ha) You should go join in on this challenge.

Tonight I have spent the evening painting. I recently received two new stamp sets from the Sheena Douglas Paint Fusion collection. The two sets I received are the Sunflower Stamp set and the Tulip Stamp set and both are so bright and beautiful! They will be debuting in a couple of days on June 30th at Crafter's Companion Store. I have been painting sunflowers on everything that isn't moving! LOL So be prepared to seem them in the future. I must admit that I am not a painter but I do have fun trying to get it right! lol

Okay, got to go and watch So You Think You Can Dance with the kids.

More tomorrow....
