Giving you the BIRDIE!

OKAY, I'M A GEEK! But you all should know that by now! Here's the BIRDIE! Ain't she cute?

Hey all! It's been a few days! Last Friday I was kinda feeling something coming on. And I was sick as can be by Saturday night and slept in bed all day Sunday after staying home from work. Then had to manage a 13 hour day Monday followed by another 6 hour shift today. My body has HAD IT and is kinda fighting off the sickness again. Ugh.

But it's been too long, and I have to share this card I did for Sketchy Thursdays! I was absolutely honored with a Guest Design Spot for the month of October with my FAVE challenge site! SKETCHY THURSDAYS!! How cool is that? So I've got some nummy sketches to play with!!! Too fun!

The newest sketch is MY MOST FAVORITEST EVER! I love it so! This card was too fun to make! Of course, I had to throw in my favorite color...turquoise! It seemed to bring the whole thing together after staring at the beautiful patterned papers I wanted to work with. I loved these papers from Basic Grey Porcelain line! Gorgeous! Especially if you're fond of birdcages! I got to use my current favorite stamp set called Chic Boutique! The set comes with the greeting I also used and a few other totally cute images! LOVE IT!

So play along with us and take advantage of this awesome sketch! Post your creation by Wednesday night! CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS. Also, check out the sponsor of this sketch, A Scrappy Design Etsy Shop.....sooooo coool!

Look at these cute cutie patooties! The one closest to the camera is my nephew Samual and my little Gabe is next to him. We were in the car on the way to ride the choo choo train over at this antique shopping mall near my house called Country Village.

This was Samual's first train ride. Gabe's been there a few times already and always begs to go. So, my brother-in-law and I headed over with our two rascals to have some fun.

Here's Samual saying "Ahhhhh youuuuuuu!" Look at those cute lips!

I had to take another photo of it.....I love pinching those cheeks!

Here's my Gabe saying "Chugga chugga choo choo!"

Samual and my B.I.L. Cham. (The one who takes most of the cool photos you see on my layouts.)

Here I am! Yes, I'm actually in a photo!

And here's my beautiful Isabel on her first day of school.

Another shot of her cute smile!

She just had to have this "I Carly" t-shirt (her fave show). It's actually pretty funny and I watched one of the newest episodes Saturday and was laughing my pants off! The show is awesome! The cast is ADORABLE! I'm a new fan!
