My SWEET little Sophie

Miss Sophie (4) is our youngest, she has a personality like none other in our family. Sweet one minute but can turn on you without any notice. She keeps us on our toes. Here is a conversation that will help you see what I am taking about.

You should know that we were visitng Grammy and Papa (my parents) when Sophie put a popsicle stick in the toilet and FLUSHED it!

Me: Sophie say sorry to Grammy.

Sophie (grunting): uh uhhhhhhhhhh

Me (losing patience): Sophie say sorry!

Sophie: uh uhhhhhhhhhhh

Me (Hoping someone from DCFS isn't listening): Sophie just say the words "Sorry Grammy" for heaven sakes.

Sophie (defiantly): I already did.

Me (flabbergasted): No you didn't! I am standing right here and never heard it.

Sophie (adamantly): That's because I said it in SPANISH!!!!

Who knew that at four she had become bilingual? Now how can you ever get mad at that?

Photo Tag

So I got blog photo tagged over the weekend. This si quite fun acutally. Acess your own picure folders on your computer. Go to your fourth folder and find your fourth picture in said folder. If you do not have that many folders do two and then two. Then post that picture on your blog. So here is mine.

This is me at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Cafe two years ago. Anyone trhat truly knows me, knows that I am addicted to Hard Rcok Cafe. LOVE IT.
Now it iis your turn, post your own pic on your blog and leave a comment here so that we can all go look at it.

Stampin Samples

People ask me to post art work on my blog all the time. They want to see what projects I am working on when I am not traveling. To be honest, I do not get a lot of time to stamp when I am not traveling. I am Daddy to 3 energetic, priceless souls, (10,7, and 4), a soccer coach, local Miss America Pageant Director, and I am addicted to spending time in my yard. So I don't get a great deal of time to create. But here are a few projects I have been working on for all the stampers out there.

I use Stampin' Up products almost exclusively because I find they have almost everything that I need. This is using the Gratuitous Graffiti background stamp, and the Flower Fancy stamp. I used Craft Ink for the watercoloring to get a more vibrant look than classic inks.

Here's another project that was way easy to put together:
Two quick and easy 4x4 notecards. Used Pink Pirouette cardstock and Seriously Sassy stamp set, rhinestone brads and pearls, adhere with mini glue dots. EASY. I don't like projects that take a long time because I don't have a lot of time.

Let me know what you think......
