Another foam stamps & enamel paint page

Say that three times fast LOL.
Well same set of stamps (not your ordinary
stamp set) just different ones
and different paint colors
but basically the same - except I flipped
the flowers to the top.
And I did fussy cut and punch some flowers
for some extra ooomphh!
 It also works perfect with the B&W photo
that is soooo cool.
I can't figure if the it's Tuesay or August hanging
out and giving comfort to Amelia
who was feeling under the weather.

Would you believe I have absolute NO big size black
thickers in my stash????
Me either, but it's so - therefore I broke out
my Quikutz - emily font and wa-la.
Does anyone use die cut alphas anymore?
I love the white splatters with the bold colors
it makes me smile.
Tossed in a bunch of sequins and do
see those teeney tiny butterflies throughout?
Aren't they adorable?
It's an itty bitty punch.

How did I miss this photo?

 Like seriously?
It's such a cool, fun picture so it's a good
thing I was out trolling for
photos after making this page.
 Keeping the matting light an airy with
just a pinch of embellies.
 And I needed to use those stamps.
I especially like the one that says #fromwhereistand.
It's so perfect and I'll be using that a lot.
Because I can.
I also wanted to use the #squad - because it's cool and
totally is the photo.
How fun is this photo especially Cavin and Amelia.
Hanging on and Cavin being cool especially
with the rabbit ears and hanging on to Amelia
 and Amelia - dramatic.

White thread and splatters

I have used my sewing machine before
but this is the first time I just ran it around on the
pages making out of control circles.
Me and Nick - another throwback photo.
(it's not that dark in real life)
Love how it turned out - really simple and fun
with the circles.
Using the chipboard as a title next to some
Tim Holtz words.

St. Patrick's Day cards

are winging their way to the grands.
I'm changing things up as they are growing up
and I realized I don't need to make them all alike.
Like doh!
I have had this paper forever, and my pay Holli
gave me some sparkly shamrocks and leprechauns 
for some snappy embellishments.

I do need to step up my card making skills - cards
like double pages baffle me.
Anyhoo, we had our Murphy Clan St. Pat's day this
past Sunday and we it was soooo good
meeting up with the Murphy's.

 (are they still around?)

So yeah yeah I don't do enough about me.
Not sure why either.
However, we shall endeavor to do better.
 Those flowers were fussy cut from a 12x12 paper
and then I popped them up. 
I was in Michael's and found a stencil
with those adorable fairies - you'll be seeing them
a lot on the granddaughter pages.
Using the packaging technique I splatted 
watercolors all about and then the title - sigh.
I really couldn't think of one so
 I found #throwback
that really works for the throwback photo is of moi.

So that was me back in 1984 - still sporting a Farrah 'do
in my natural color.
That was 2 years after Nick was born.
Life was going really good.
There's a tag tucked in the bag that I haven't
journaled on yet. It's perculating on the back of the brain right now.
