Class of 2010!!!

Last night was my son Jesse's High School graduation from Agua Fria HS. I am so so proud of him! He has succeeded in his HS carrier in so many ways. He did great academically, he is a 4 year Varsity Athlete, he has made wonderful lifetime friends, he has great goals but most of all he is an AMAZING Son! We Love you Jesse an CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
Jesse with one of his closest friends , Rico.

Jesse is a great friend here are just a few of his friends, some go to different schools some are under classmen and some are kids he has met overtime and stayed friends with.
He had quite the group cheering him on!

And last but not least Jesse and his brothers, Colbey, Cooper, Jager, Cameron and Ares.
If Ares doesn't look familiar he is the son of our dear friends David and Julie. He fits right in with the boys so of course he needed to be in the brothers pic.

Day 2 of Sneak Peaks and a Tuesday Challenge...

For today not only do I have a sneak peak of the Tin Man image but I have a challenge. This Tuesdays challenge is to create a Birthday card. Laurie is our host this week for the challenge so be sure to check out her Blog "On the Bright Side" What I love most about this image is the detail that can be achieved by layering colors in the same category to acheive depth. In this case I used Copic colors C1, C3, C5 and C7. For my sneak peak card I once again used patterened paper from the Basic Grey pack "Lime Rickey".
Don't forget to check back for more details about the Blog Hop the Riley and Company DT will be hosting on Thursday night. All of the new images will be available during the Hop! I will also explain how you could have a chance to win two stamps that will only be won not sold!

Ring Around the Moosey....

Okay that was silly but I couldn't think of anything more cleaver. Today's Riley and Company Tuesday challenge is hosted by the amazingly talented Silke. The challenge is to create a circle card. For my card I used Farmer Couple Riley and Sophie, which can be found on the Riley and Company site. The patterned paper is by Basic Grey. I colored the adorable couple with Copics and added some primas. Copic colors used were, Body E33 & E35, Hooves E 35 & E37, Antlers E53 & E33, Hat Y23 & Y26, Pants E42 & E44, Rileys Shirt B93 & B97, Sophies Dress YR00, YR02, YR04 & YR07. The mats were cut using my Nesties and my new Wizard by Spellbinders. Did you notice the fun green and tan ribbon in middle with the little green duck? This was an awesome find at a craft fair. It is actually vintage paper ribbon, almost like raffia. It is probably just brittle from age, anyway. It looks like it would have been used to tie on brown packaging. As soon as I saw it I had to have it, then when I saw the price $3 for a huge spool, probably hundreds of yards! So back to the challenge info. If you choose to participate and post on SCS be sure to use the keywords 0810! Thanks for coming by and be sure to check the entire DT for amazing samples!!
