Choose Happy

I have several book stamps but they all have women in them so I found one that I could use and cut the books out and put it with this cute sloth (originally the sloth was hugging a big balloon). He's so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2 cat cards

I just love this cat stamp I found at Hobby Lobby by Stampendous. It's a Laurel Burch image and I have always loved her images! I know Hobby Lobby had one other one of hers that I "need" to go back and get it especially since all stamps are 40% off this week. (and I especially the stamp itself is in the shape of an actual cat!)

I am entering these in the following challenges:

Rainbows and Unicorns

These are more rocks I made for our Harrisburg + Rocks Facebook group to hide. It's raining today but I plan to hide these in a few days and hopefully it will brighten someone's day.

I just happen to find this awesome unicorn and rainbow napkins at Marshall's yesterday so I decided to modge podge them onto some rocks and then I will hide them for kids/adults to find and hopefully make their day :).

This fits perfectly into the following challenges:

Challenge Up Your Life - Rainbow/Unicorns
Crafter's Castle - Anything Goes with Dimensional (optional)

After adhering the napkins to the rocks using Saran Wrap,
I added the words using my paint pens I got at
Walmart. For the rainbow, I added gold dots around the
rainbow using a paint brush and gold acrylic paint.

First, I cut the rainbows and unicorns out of the napkin
Then I used Modge Podge to "glue" it onto the rocks.

I used Saran Wrap to help get the wrinkles
out before I adhered it to the rock

Same thing for this one. Used
Saran Wrap

This package of napkins was at
Marshall's for $2.99. I found
it in the back. I had no idea
Marshall's had so many
different kinds of napkins.
I've only seen them near the

Rock Painting Event

We had a rock painting event at our local Lowe's Foods this weekend and we had about 40-50 people turn out to paint rocks. Each kid or adult painted a rock (or 2), left it with us to seal later and then they took a rock that we had already painted with them. Everyone had a great time as you can see from the pics below. This was our 3rd time at Lowe's Foods and even though we love it there, we are looking into finding a bigger venue since each time we do it, more and more people come.

Celebrate You Graduation

I made this graduation card for my cousin's son who is graduating this summer and going onto college in the Fall. For the background, I did the Polished Stone technique and I watched this video. For mine, I used Stampin Up ink pads refills and rubbing alcohol onto glossy card stock (I only had Yupo glossy cardstock to use)
