I have been having a lot of fun playing with my stamps and coloring them with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits! As a child, I loved to color & this brings back all of those happy memories! :)

These first two are digital stamps by Dustin Pike. I love his images!

These next two cards use Stampendous stamps.

This card uses a Stampendous snowman stamp which I stamped on Worldwin paper that was embossed with my Cuddlebug snowflake embossing folder.

I love this card - it uses my Tim Holtz stamps!

Thanks for stopping by - have a great day! :)

It's catch-up time on my posting of my project 365 photos - I was waiting for a photo from Rick's iphone & he thought he had sent them ... I was trying not to pester ... but I finally have the photos so here is a super photo heavy post! :)

August 18 2009
A wonderful hail storm swept through this afternoon - the trees took a beating and left lots of leaves on Seth's trampoline!

August 19 2009
Seth doing his homework - I used to rest my head on my arm like that as a kid & I remember getting yelled at by my parents & teachers ... now I couldn't imagine doing that. Was interesting to see Seth with a habit that I had as a child.

August 20 2009

August 21 2009
I love finding little things that Seth leaves behind - a water bottle filled with marbles!

August 24 2009

August 25 2009
Rick & Seth got hair cuts today - love Seth's hair this short!

August 26 2009
Today we took Seth to his pediatrician for a check up to see what could be causing his sleeping issues ... good to find out that as parents we are on the right track - but bad that it's not working after nearly a month.

August 27 2009
Went to the Natural Food Store today to find Seth some homeopathic sleep remedies ...

August 28 2009
Heading West & turning South into our neighborhood.

August 29 2009
Seth's team played three games this weekend in the Falkner Festival. Seth caught a great pass in the second game on Saturday. Seth is Right Tackle on two offenses and Tight End on one. He also plays Right Tackle on two of the three defenses; he loves that he is on the field nearly the whole game!

August 30 2009
Seth was double teamed most of this game - he also had a quarter back sack ... told him he must feel good that the other team thought he was good enough to need double coverage most of the game! :)

Thanks for stopping by! :)
