Thursday Update

Not much is happening this week. I spent yesterday with my friend Jenny and her two daughters. We were going to spend the day crafting, but we always underestimate the amount of time little kids suck out of you. I got some cards made and helped her a bit.

The top card is for today's challenge to use Kraft paper. Having recently stocked up on some kraft paper from Papertrey Ink, I was in good shape. I used Hanna Stamps' new set Pool Party and paper pieced the swimmers onto the blue paper. Isn't the little swimming dog adorable?

Yesterday the challenge was a sketch challenge and I flipped the sketch to a horizontal lay out. I popped Riley Moose up on pop dots so he really stands out in real life. The scene in the back is the Neighborhood stamp wheel from SU.
I am meeting my mom for lunch today. She recently started crafting and has a Cricut. (It's an expensive electronic die cut machine.) She loves to tell me how much she loves it, and how I need one, too. I don't know where she thinks a few hundred dollars for an optional crafting device would come from, plus all the money that would be spent on cartridges. If she brings it up at lunch again, I may just bite her head off. She truly forgets what it was like to raise kids on a budget.

I just love the look of the kraft paper paired with the bright colors of your pool. Riley is too cute grilling out in his neighborhood!
