Just Ducky!

Here he is...the first image for Michelle Houghton's Copic Coloring 2 "class" over at Get it Scrapped!  I really had fun with this little guy...the reflection went better than I thought it would.  Can't wait to get busy on image #2, which is a really cute digital stamp from Jellypark!  I'll try and get that one colored and up this weekend.  Thanks again Michelle for all your hard work!

Yabba Dabba Do!

Well, this post has NOTHING to do with scrapbooking, but I absolutely love this picture and the fun I was having when it was taken.  My son is a WEBELO in Scouts.  This past weekend, our den went to Neil Smith Prairie Learning Center for a program and then camping.  Our den leader, Lorie is so much fun! While we were waiting for the program to start, Lorie and I saw these buffalo hats in the gift shop and they reminded me of the "The Flintstones" and the Grand Poobah hats Fred wore...of course we HAD to put them on.  Thank you "Betty" for the (and your socks) ROCK!

I got this WAY cute little girl from Mo's Digital Pencil and I just love her!  I had a heck of a time with her hair and I still have a ways to go getting my blending down, but I think she turned out pretty good.  I really enjoy using my Copic markers and am looking forward to Michelle Houghton's next on-line Copic coloring class over at Get It Scrapped.  Hope you enjoy this cutie as much as I do!

My son LOVES to go fishing with his grandpa (aka "D").  One day, my son caught this big ol' bass from the pond behind my parents house.  He was pretty proud of it and he HAD to put this picture up at the local sporting goods/hunting store!

I love Copic!

Ok, so I just happen to know this REALLY neat lady by the name of Michelle Houghton, yeah, that lady! ;)  Anyhoo, Michelle surprised all of us at Copic Club with these really cute cups which we got to color with our Copics and new found skills.  The night Michelle gave us our cups was the night she taught us how to use the Copic Airbrush system.  I made the clouds on my cup with the airbrush,  I need some practice but it was a lot of fun!  Thank you again Michelle!  You ROCK!!!!  By the case any one would like to check it out...Michelle is getting ready to start another Copic coloring "class" on line over at Get It Scrapped!  The first class was a blast and I am looking forward to part 2!

The last week in June, my sister and her family came back home for a visit from California.  It has been a while since her entire family has been back and it was SO good to see them, especially my big they are getting.  One of the days, my mom wanted a family "photo shoot"...loads of fun.  Any hoo...I took this cute picture of my son and my nieces by the lake.  I am so thankful they were able to come back, it was a great week!

Ok, today my post has nothing to do with crafting...well, not really.  It DOES have to do with the original "potter" who forms each of us everyday.  It has been sort of a crazy time for me as of late.  Things at work piling up, issues with friends, personal issues...just a lot of  STUFF.  This morning on my way into work, I turned the radio to a station I haven't listened to in a while and a song was on entitled "This is the Stuff" by Francesca Battistelli.  The song hit me HARD!  All of the sudden, I found myself smiling and crying all at the same time (I'm sure the other drivers around me were wondering what I was doing).  I had been letting the "stuff" of life get to me, forgetting what was really important in life...that I am BLESSED beyond words.  Blessed with a wonderful husband and son, a roof over my head, food on our table, a job to go to every day, friends and family.  The trials of life shouldn't over-shadow all that He has given me...that is a tough one to remember.  I pray that if you are reading this, that our wonderful Father is with you and that He continues to bless you just as He has me.  And remember "I've gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing, might not be what I might choose but this is the stuff You use".
