I'm still here :).

Hello!  I apologize for the quiet around here.  Little man started running a fever Thursday, symptoms piled up through Sunday, and I've just been exhausted since then.  He is doing MUCH better now and I'm starting to feel a little more normal.  Although, I have a ton of laundry to do!

Anyway, I have some fun things to share today!  First up, SRM Stickers has paired up with Pink Paislee this week!  I received the adorable Hometown Summer line to play with and created this fun layout:

What you don't see in this photo of my sisters and I out to lunch is my stain.  I leaned over my cheeseburger animal style to give Jaxon a french fry and ended up with a "well-placed", orange, greasy, cheesy stain on my shirt.  Thank heavens I was also wearing a cardi :).  You can see what the other designers have done with all of Pink Paislee's latest lines here.  You'll be seeing more SRM/Pink Paislee from me in the near future - pairing the two made for fabulous party decor for my son's 8th birthday a couple of weeks ago :).

We have a new challenge up at The Paper Variety.  Inspired by this image...

...I created this card:

I hope the happy sequin raindrops and cheerful yellow will help someone who is "under the weather" feel better :).  Play along for a chance to win some fabulous Studio Calico goodies!  Details here.

And one more thing before I go :).  Scrapbook Circle is participating in an event this weekend called True Scrap.  Go to Scrapbook Circle's blog here, and click on the link to True Scrap.  If you register through that link, you will receive a $15.00 gift certificate to Scrapbook Circle.  Pretty cool, huh?

Have a great day! Tessa
