I hope everyone had a nice, relaxing Mother's Day. My husband surprised me with mookies in the morning, which doubled as snacks throughout the day. For dinner, he presented a coleslaw, provolone, and grilled Korean tri-tip sandwich on potato bread. That was yummo! My littlest ones drew portraits of me all day long. Brandi, my oldest really outdid herself. She got me a Singer Ultralock machine which is something I've had my eye on for quite a little while now. I just love it. It's much easier to operate than I thought it would be and it's pretty quiet, too.
The very talented Debbi Tehrani is the color combo creator for Designers Challenge Week at CCG. I always love to see what she's come up with using the weekly challenges, and I was very pleased to see her own color combo--very pretty. You'll enjoy the inspiration from the rest of the CCG designers and our featured member this week is Esther Andrews--I adore her style with the digi: http://colorcombosgalore.ning.com/
This layout features recent pictures taken of Gwen and my hubby enjoying a few cups of tea together on a Saturday evening. My hubby is not a small man. He's about 6'2" tall and is a good size. He's sitting in Gwen's "Dora the Explorer" chair--isn't he adorable. He even poses for my camera. He always makes times like these special for our children and really goes the extra mile for them. I love him for so many reasons.
Again, lots of fun with my Cricut on this layout. I used a lot of my favorite cartridges, and a shape from a cartridge I got recently--the chipboard mat with the circles came from Locker Talk--lots of good cuts on that cartridge that I hadn't noticed before. Soon I think I'm going to utilize the album on that cartridge to make a keepsake for Gwen's teacher. I've been taking photos of the class all year when visiting--I think she might enjoy that. I also got to use my Cuttlebug with textile embossing folder for the tea set, etc.
Thanks, Debbi for the combo! If you want to participate in the challenge, follow the link and post your layouts there by Sunday to be eligible for the monthly RAK--Good luck!
