instant human....

Hello Hello!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!


Tuesday's over here means a Skipping Stones Design Day!

Today is the sketch challenge...and this month we have the very fabbie Ashley Cannon Newell as our Sketch Artist!!! Be sure to read about Ashley AND all of our magnificent Guest DT Members for September...it is a Power Crew!!!!!

Here is my take on this week's sketch:


Yes, I know I used the Funny Coffee vol. #1 set last week....but these are different images....seriously though, it is one of my favorite sets...being the coffee-a-holic that I am:)

My papers of choice this week is the new Cosmo Cricket Togetherness line...soooo sweet:)

I hope that you'll join us in the sketch challenge...love to see how it inspires you and be sure to check out everyone's take on it on the Skipping Stones Design site!!!!!

Labor Day Weekend...working on a MacBook...someone help me...how do I do those sweet hearts?

Okay anyways....Darin and I took a mini vacation up to 'my homeland'.....

CANADA!!!!


Hmmm....does blogger have a maximum photo dealio in terms of space or bytes or whatever they are called? haha...I am so not techie...wanted to share some other pics but they are taken by Darin's camera and they are chock full of bytes or whatever so I think I need to shrink them or something....

Anyways, I'm a consistent type of gal...once I like something, I like it...don't necessarily like to stray from it unless I get some feedback....this trip to B.C. we stayed up in North Vancouver...it's my first time up there and I loved it...we managed to take the SeaBus and the SkyTrain...2 things I've never ventured on...pretty exciting:)


Yes, of course we went to a Starbucks...I have a couple pics from there and intend on making a card based on some art work that was inside...I'll share that soon:)


I managed to keep up with my blurfing via Darin's iPad...just not alotta commenting...but I did see everything....

Okie Dokie...that's it for me today....have a super duper day peeps!!!

  26. Oooooo! Loving the bright happy colors on your card....looks like the caffeine from that coffee went to work in a fabby way! :>

    Yea, Blogger does have some kind of limit, but I have no idea what it is. I just know before they updated their system, it used to say how much I had used up whenever I was uploading a pic. Now, I have no idea where that info is. So, yea, I'd image size the pics. But, Please do share!!! I love Vancouver & Victoria!!! That's where Hubby & I honeymooned over a decade ago. We were both there in the nineties, ironically at the same time even though we didn't know each other then. lol Anyhow, we are both dying to get back....maybe when the kidlets get a bit older. In the meantime, I love to see pics of that great place! :>

    Hope your day is great, Amy! :>
