Pizza Night! -- featuring Elle's Studio :)

Hi everyone :)

I wanted to share a page I made using Elle's Studio "Let's Eat" collection :)

I used Elle's pizza stamp to create my background :)

I also wanted to share some photos from this past Saturday --- my friend was supposed to be the volunteer photographer at a Father/Daughter Luau for her daughter's Girl Scout Troop, but she had to be out of town, so she asked me to help out .... absolutely! I said! :)

Here are some photos of Brookie and Brian at the event, it was really fun! :)

Before we left for the event :)

At the event .... they had a photo area set up for me to take photos of the people attending :)

Brookie got a Henna tattoo :)

Being silly :)

Having a daddy/daughter dance :)

Her face just says it all :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

#ShareACoke :)

Hi everyone :)

I wanted to share a project I made :)

I have had this project milling in my brain for about a year now *wink* 

Last summer Coca-Cola came up with the ingenious campaign of #ShareACoke -- names on their bottles -- with me being OCD -- you know I had to find one for each of us in the family :) 

Believe it or not -- JULIE was the hardest one for me to find!!!

Well ... I finally got them all last summer  :)

^^ Now read above -- I have had these bottles for a year now :) 

Here are the bottles and some brown paint :)

My first plan was to keep the liquid (soda) in the bottles - fast forward to this year, when I FINALLY got around to making my project .... and I am glad that I actually waited until this year to make it ... because each soda had a film on the top of the liquid and the color had faded on each one --- like I told someone on Facebook when I posted my project there --- I am glad that we "dispose" of liquids in the bathroom -- because after what these sodas looked like in their bottles after a year, I would be afraid to see what they'd look like in our bodies after a year! LOL!! :) 

So I took the paint ^^^^ pictured above and emptied the sodas, cleaned the bottles out and then added paint inside each bottle and shook it up to coat the inside of the bottle :) 

Along with the bottles, I had found this wood "crate" type box at an antique store -- it had an actual car part in (a piston) and a gold-spray painted plastic toy camera screwed into the wood -- it was art to them --- but the perfect home for my #ShareACoke bottles for me :) 

I also ordered this vintage Coke metal sign online to add to this project :)

I took out the old piston and the plastic camera, then added the metal Coke sign to the back of the crate box :)

And here is the finished project -- a shadow box for my #ShareACoke bottles :)

I think it turned out pretty awesome :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Hi everyone :)

I wanted to share a layout I made using the latest sketch over at My Scraps & More :)

I also wanted to share a photo for this weeks prompt at Our Beautiful World --- and their prompt this week is "TINY" --- I shared this photo yesterday on Facebook for Father's Day -- along with these words .....

"He had already become an amazing step-dad to Adam, but this was the first day he became her Daddy -- Happy Fathers Day to my hubby, the most amazing and wonderful step-dad and daddy to my beautiful children -- Thank you for being such an amazing role model for our kids and for being the core of our family"
