Graduation, Birthday and Father's Day

So this is a mish-mash kinda post. A bit of everything that I have been up to this week. First are a few photos from my daughter's preschool graduation. She attends pre-school in the mornings before going to kindergarten in the afternoons. This was her graduation day and she looked so cute. All of the girls we dressed all pretty and the weather was perfect.

With her best friends. Ashley and Eve.

Too Cute, right?? I know I'm bias but...
she has the most gorgeous eyes - she can thank her daddy for those big browns!!

And I kept the tradition going by making my niece's birthday invites. This year she wanted something simple so here's what I came up with :

Quick and easy but she loved them!!

And for my last project, I'm going to show you the card I gave to my husband for father's day. I can't really take any creative credit for this one. I got the papers (precut) from one of the kits I picked up from a class I couldn't attend at Precious Memories. I owe the credit to my co-teacher Colleen. She did all the hard work. Thanks Colleen ; )

Well, I have to run. Off to teach a Copic class this morning.
Tomorrow is my hubby's birthday and we are celebrating all of the June birthdays (we have 7 June birthdays) with a big family BBQ. Hopefully the weather is nice. Have a good weekend,

My Mind's Eye

Hey Everyone,

It's been a while. There's 3 main factors for that :
1. working full time now, ugg!!
2. home life has been crazy busy, end of the school year, cars issues ect.
3. my dad had borrowed my camera and so I wasn't able to take any photos recently

But I'm hoping to be able to get into a more regualr posting schedual. HOPEFULLY. But I shall not hold my breath as I don't want to be disappointed in myself.

I still have been working on different creative projects and classes. I will be posting those over the next few days.

But for today I am going to show you one of my favourite cards as a late. I created this cutey using the adorale So Sophie papers from My Minds Eye (love them) and the new Bye Bye Boy stamps from Stampin' Bella.

I colored the image using my Copic markers.
Close-up of the coloring :
And don't cha just luv this sentiment. I adore the Dr.Suess book, so when I saw it - I had to have it.

 This book has become a bit of a tradition as I grew up. All of us kids, my brothers and sisters and I, all received this book as a graduation gift. It's a pretty good and inspiring story. It makes me smile everytime I think of it. I think I will keep the tradition going and gift this book to my daughter when she graduates.

My Mind's Eye Blog is having a contest to use this sketch and the idea of "I remember..." 
and I am going to submit this card. I'll keep my fingers crossed for the big prize - 3 whole lines. Ooo - I would love to do some creating with more MME papers.

Anyways, that's all I have time for tonight. Take Care.

June Calendar at Precious Memories

Good Morning,

Hope everyone in blog-land is doing well!!

I haven't had the chance to post very frequently right now. Adjusting to working full time and still teaching classes is harder than I thought it would be. I have been coloring alot lately, and I will eventually sit down and actually assemble something worth photographing. But until then... I'll just keep doing the de-stress coloring. 

The ladies from Precious Memories (where I teach classes) had a meeting last night and you can all look forward to some changes in the future... it's going to be fabulous. I LOVE those ladies. (they have made it really comfortable to come and join thier teaching crew... thanks girls!!) In the mean time - come on out and join on of the many June classes. Tonnes of them offer free product, gift ideas and other REALLY cool stuff. Check out the June calendar here
