gelatos & you...




I've had these luscious Gelatos for awhile and finally played with them over the weekend:


They put out so much color...soooo pretty!  


This is what I did with those blooms and leaves:


I was inspired by the Lawnscaping Sketch Challenge:


I used Lawn Fawn's





The newsprint banner is American Crafts Soho Garden.

Along with the Tuesday Trigger:



and finally

CAS-ual Fridays

{I hope cork works!} 


Super Great News on the Home Front:

AP Test scores

My boy received a 4 on his AP European History Test!

My girl received 5's on her AP Environmental Science, US Gov and Stats Tests!  That puts her up to 80 credits going into the University of Washington...10 credits shy of 2 complete years!

Proud Momma of both of my fabulous kids.
