Looking at the time it is technically Sunday, so HAPPY Sunday!!! even if i am posting this in the wee early AM,,,, hehe... i was a bit occupied yesterday and failed to prepost this creation,,, (slap on the hands) so if you want to scold me now, go ahead, i'm bracing myself for it... =D i know you wouldn't though... i need some "down" time right?!?

had a fun filled day yesterday... Hubby took us to eat at my FAVE restaurant on the west side... and then treated the kiddies to a ride on the Sugar Cane Train... oh yes, it was a family day well spent... literally! LOL...

i spent the last 4 hours staring at the things on my desk waiting for it to come together by itself... yup, it's a crafter's block moment... didn't get much done.... arrrgh! now i'm sneakin' in to post this creation before hitting dreamland... i think that's what i need to refuel Ms. Creativity...
simply said with some Aloha.... my super sweet BFF sent me a package of goodies and inside was this wonderful CC Designs stamp, Welcome Brigitta, that's been on my wishlist since it's release.... Thanks BFF, me LOVES this so much!! i received this a few weeks ago, but kept it aside (with the urgency and temptation of wanting to ink it up) until after the party was well over with.... so this past week i finally got to use her along with the weekly ATS challenge which is a fun sketch.... i wanted her to stand out so i picked a color found within the DPs and that color was orange.... purple and orange??? not a bad mix... hehe... the Aloha sentiment is from TGF's Anya Says set which goes great with this image... or so i think.... i'm so sorry but i have no idea what the DP line is called... i just know i bought a bunch when it went on clearance and i failed to scribble down the deets.... so bad!! went with a 5x7 card so that the sketch could clearly been seen without hiding the papers so much... combined some punched flowers with some primas and rhinestone middles... then added a few dew drops here and there... simple and clean.... do you likey?!?

that's all i have to share with you for now... will pop back in later with sign ups for September's SSS and if all goes planned this coming week, i have a few more sharings... i just remembered i haven't shared my journal page for last week... i'm not so thrilled with it but i'll share that soon... just trying to work out the postings so i'm not overposting... LOL.... have a fantastic Sunday and come again soon!!
