Sip & See for Leila Marie

My niece Sheila just had a beautiful baby girl on May 30th. She didn’t know the sex of the baby and wanted to be surprised so we postponed the shower for after the birth. This type of shower is called a ‘Sip & See’. The concept is to come sip some coffee, wine or champagne and see the newborn baby. Below are a few pictures of the event, my sisters and I love to put out a great display!

Oh So Eclectic!

Eclectic, what does that mean? According to the dictionary…
ec·lec·tic
əˈklektik
adjective
deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.
synonyms: wide-ranging, broad-based, extensive, comprehensive, encyclopedic

Stampin’ Up! loves the idea of broad and diverse range of sources that they used the ‘Oh So Eclectic’ stamp set on the cover of the new annual catalog. I love the bright colors, water coloring possibilities and so much more!

Parkour Birthday

par·kour
noun
the activity or sport of moving rapidly through an area, typically in an urban environment, negotiating obstacles by running, jumping, and climbing.
 The first time I heard about Parkour was when my niece asked me to make Parkour Cupcake Toppers for her son’s 11th birthday. Google and Brother ScanNCut to the rescue!
Of course I had to use this for the birthday card.
Here I am with the birthday boy, Isaiah! I love this kid, he was so appreciative of the cupcake toppers, he told me they were great and thank you over and over again!

From L to R, Me, Christopher (photo bombing), Isaiah-Birthday Boy and my sister Yolanda at Isaiah’s birthday dinner.

Now you know, Parkour…something I will never do!

Dinosaurs Not Just For Kids!

For my monthly mall class I challenged myself to create a dinosaur card that wasn’t geared towards kids . It was a bit of a challenge until I paired the ‘No Bones About It‘ stamp set with the ‘Here for You‘ stamp set. I think it worked!

My niece saw this card and then asked me to make a wedding card with a dinosaur theme. She was attending a wedding in the Orlando Science Center and the reception was being held in the Dino Hall. Here are the two cards I made, one for my niece and one for my sister who was also attending the wedding.
