Happy Summer!

Well at least it feels that way! getting into the 90's for a few days and thought I would make something summery to go with it! So here we have a stampset that I have had for a bit and had to make something with it! I got the sketch from so here is my version of the sketch!

I just love the bright colors! The stampset is from Archivers by Hero Arts and the saying is also another Hero Arts set. The papers are actually from my stash, which is always nice to use up! Anyhoo, Have a Cool Day!!!

Prom Princess.........

Well it finally came and DD looked so BEAUTIFUL!!! She had an absolutely wonderful time at her Senior Prom and we couldn't be prouder! Her date was very handsome too! Here is a photo of them....They had a Night to remember! The theme was "The way you look tonight"...and did she ever....Oh , Proud Mommy Daddy moment. The first photo of is of DD and her date, the second of her before they arrived, the last is of her , her date, and two of her gal friends Before Prom and the very last is after Prom...look at those smiles! They had a Rockin time! Congrats beautiful Daughter!

Too funny!

Okay so my sister is over 40 and is a victim of Presbeopia (sp), you know long arm syndrom when your reading! LOL!! So when she is over, which is often, and has to read something and doesn't have her glass she tries to read it pushing it way out as far as she can extend or has one of us read it. If she has her glasses with her she'll say , "Oh wait, I have to get my glasses."......well my dd is taking typing classes in school and decided to put an Added note to my sisters Mother's day card. The actual card is a regular sized card that is pink. Then she typed this note to her and taped it to the center of the card....Which we all found quite funny. But the kicker was she said to me, "I used the number 72 (font) so Aunt Roro can see the type without her glasses"......So on Mom's Day we went over to Roro's house and she gave it to her....Rose says, "Wait let me get my glasses." Liv says, "Oh no Aunt Roro, you won't need them, you'll see" So Rose opened the card and Man did she laugh! So she brought it over to our house later on so I could get this picture of them to post on my blog! Too funny! Enjoy!
