Favorite Shows this Summer.

Hello, everyone! Happy Hump Day!

Wednesdays usually mean 'So You Think You Can Dance' for me. I look forward to seeing this show as it's one of my faves. And although the winner in the end was the one I had been rooting for, I'm still sad that the season is over.

Then, there's also 'The Challenge: Rivals', which I'm also addicted to. Lots of drama, lots of fighting, but it's really one of the last shows that I watch on MTV.

And speaking of favorite TV shows, I took Mattie to a concert version of his fave the other day. But more on that later as I have a card to showcase.

Today, I'm playing along with Deconstructed Sketch # 14. Jen's sketches are really awesome -- they are very detailed and linear. It's always challenging for me because even though I like to layer, I don't always use a lot of paper (does that make sense?). Using a lot of patterned paper just adds so much dimension. Here's my take on this week's sketch:

Supplies:
Stamp- TGF's Oliver
Ahoy. Sentiment- Paper Smooches' Word Up.
CS- Bazzill. Neenah.
PP- Jillibean Soup.
Ribbon- Bo Bunny.
Misc- Colorbok ink. Memento ink. Copics.


So as soon I was cleared to drive by my doc, I took Mattie to see The Wiggles. They're a group from Australia who sing and dance, and they have their own TV show.











I only brought my point and shoot camera so pardon the poor pictures. Mattie had so much fun. It's always nice seeing things through your children's eyes :). So glad we got to go. I had only bought the tickets a few days before and everything worked out with babysitting for the baby (my hubby) and pretty good seats for the price. It was nice being able to take him out, just the two of us, especially since the new baby arrived.

Take care,

I couldn't get into SYTYCD this year! I've been too busy crafting! Although I do think Melanie was deserving. :)

LOVE Rivals! It's my biggest guilty pleasure and I'm in LUV with CT! Uh-huh. :)

Cute card - can't believe you layer without layering. *lol* Either way, you're the most talented layerer who doesn't layer I know! :)

So glad Mattie enjoyed the Wiggles! I was thinking about taking the kids too, but I think I'm more into them now than they are. Love Sam! :)

Super cute card, Oliver looks so sweet!
I don't get MTV so I've never seen the Rivals but I do love SYTYCD and was rooting for Melanie to win also!
How fun to have an outing with just the two of you! It looks like Mattie was really into the Wiggles!
