Hope y'all are enjoying your 4th of July weekend (& Canada Day weekend for my friends up north)!!
It's my last official weekend before baby2 comes. Lots of nesting going on -- re-organizing his clothes and Mattie's new/ old clothes sure are taking up tons of time. Then I had my last doc's appointment too. Whew! It's all becoming very real! Our family of three will soon be a fam of 4!!
Anyway, with all the errands and chores, I was so glad I had time to craft these past couple of days. Just in time, too, because one of my new favorite stamp line had a challenge -- SOG's Bright & Blinding Challenge.
It's exactly as it sounds! Perfect for the summer! Dunno about your neck of the woods but it sure is sweltering HOTT over here!
I picked out my brightest and loudest patterned paper - MARGARITA from American Crafts. This line just makes me smile and wish I was on a vacation. And since I got some new Copics, I decided to make Ice Cream Tia ginger :). Everybody seems to be having highlights right now (I'm jealous!), and so I added some highlights/ low-lights to her hair too.
I even added freckles.. I just think Tia (obtained from an image swap with a friend) is soooo cute! I was inspired by sneak peeks on SOG's Facebook page of a freckled-faced new image :). BTW, my lil sis and I are the only pure Filipinos I know who have freckles, LOL! Actually, she does...I'm hoping mine are freckles and not age/sun spots (YIKES!).
I also 'twirled' the edges of the polka dotted paper (AC's Mambo) using a BBQ skewer - saw it at my LSS and loved the element/ texture it added to the page. The popcicle/ ice cream stamp is from Studio G. And here are the Copics I used:
Hope you come back soon!
