Bella and SFYTT!...

Hey, everyone!

Sorry I'm posting a little late this morning!  I am a wee bit tired as I took the kids to their FIRST Drive-In movie last night...and it was actually MY first time too!   Oh, the FUN we had...and for CHEAP!  We saw Cars 2 and Pirates of the Carribean-On Stranger Tides.   It was $7 for me, $4 for the 3 older kids and my little one was FREE!   I couldn't believe it.   It costs more than that to see a matinee for ONE movie and we saw two new releases..and a large popcorn...you are not going to believe this- was 4.50.  I think at the AMC it's like 18 dollars or something ridonkulous!  SO. MUCH. FUN!!!  I cannot WAIT to go back again for more summer fun and to bring Daddy with when he's not working- the kids thought it was pretty much the coolest thing ever.... SUCH a fun night.

I have more FUN today here on the ol' Bloggaroo... Stamping Bella is sponsoring this month's SKETCH for YOU to TRY over on my friend Jen Del Muro's Blog and I LOVE the sketch!  Check it out:

I colored up Lulu's Poppies from Stamping Bella-this is one of my FAVE images ever....ok, ok, I know it's a new release and I know I say that often, but seriously, it IS!  LOOK how gorgeous this image is!  I really had fun coloring her with my Copics and using Jen's AWESOME SKETCH for this card:

I used Crate Paper's "Potrait" DP and used one of my favorite wooden buttons from Maya Road to finish off the card.  I also pulled out my Distress Stickles in "Antique Linen" which I think I used one other time in my life LOL...but I really like how they worked w/ this card!   Thanks for looking!

Time for the pool or lake today...more SUMMER FUN!....but I'll be back with another preview from the TGF July release tomorrow.  In the mean time, check out Jen Shults's AWESOME post on the TGF Blog today!

xoxo,

OMG, she is so gorgeous! I love the DP, it reminds me of The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island.

Diiiivine! Oh how I love those poppies. You've adapted this to the sketch so beautifully. And the design papere is perfect. We have a couple drive in theatres in the area - I think that's because we're in the country now. Haven't been to one since I was a kid though and I'm itching to give it a whirl again.
