Nadine made me do it ......

My buddy and "PAL" Nadine gave the challenge this time for the The PTI PALs. Can you believe that she actually wants us to use our "Designer Paper" ........ I like to make it sound fancy :) Thankfully I bought 2 of this cute little Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday paper ....... I worked on my focal image first so I had to use the more muted side of the paper to begin with because there was just too much going on the other way. I had to go back to this card a few times because I was not feeling it ....... maybe because I am so hungry ........ diet's STINK ..... I actually thought this paper looked good enough to eat and no calories.



Now because I love the other side of the paper so much I had to make a notebook too ...... obviously this is going to someone I really like :)



I made a few magnets to put in my care package as well ........ I used my paper again ...... for the flower and a few buttons and then of course you know I have to throw in my signature green VW. You really cannot see the magnets too well because I wanted to make sure I got Emma's art in the photo ...... I am the one with the pink hair ....... this is how I am going to get my hair styled next time :) Notice there are smiles everywhere ..... that is how she draws colors and smiles on every thing


And here is a beautiful Peony against our grapevine ........ and the grapes are amazing!!!


Last but not least ....... little Ava is walking :) Yes I kiss and love up those legs all the time ...... she is a total peach!!!

OK, first up let me scream out loud at how adorable Ava is! Holy crow she's the sweetest thing evah! Can I babysit? *grin*
Secondly, I'm so jealous of your gorgeous peonies...mine haven't even begun to bloom yet...
Thirdly, your magnet is very cool, but the artwork under it rocks! Looks how happy it is! Love that.
Fourth, your notepad is stunning. So plresing to the eye and very well-balanced. I love that you added tiny flowers to the stem from Life on your card too...very unique and it looks perfect with that PP. Go YOU!

I am so sorry Sue Ann I don't know how I missed commenting on this post (and it even has my name in the title)! Bad PAL!!

So many wonderful things going on! Ava's adorable chunkie legs and the little pigtails!! Scrumptious! Your card and notebook and beautiful! Emma's art work just works and I like mommy with the pink hair and big smile. She totally captured your spirit!

Hope you had a great holiday weekend. I've been a little busy around here and am now trying to play catch up with everyone. You're such an awesome pal! :o)
