JustRite's Friday Fun Challenge...and some pics!

Good morning and happy weekend to you!!! I am heading out in a bit to my Gram's house to clean and then visit. I think after that the hubby and I are buying flowers and doing some gardening today. (Add that to the huge pile of laundry, the dusting, and vacuuming that also needs to be done!) ick. But first things first!

I have a card using JustRite's Celebration set! It was created for the JustRite's Friday challenge.....to create a kids' themed card. (Sponsored by Spellbinders!) The elephant was colored with Copics and cut out. I stamped the present he is holding twice and cut that out. It was popped up using my Perga Kit. It pops the image up and gives it dimension. The paper is by DCWV. Love all of its glittery goodness!!! : ) The fringe was cut using my Martha Stewart fringe scissors. And the button? Tessa Ann! She has the prettiest clay buttons EVAH!

Can you see the tiny lil present popped up?


My son is 13. He hates having his picture taken. Really hates it. So imagine my surprise when I asked him if we could have a mini photo shoot, and he said yes. Really? So I did what any mother would do, grab my camera quickly before he changed his mind! We just went in the backyard and I started shooting away. Here are a few of the pics.......

I can't believe how fast he is growing up...........sheesh!


OK.......truth is.......after the photo shoot he asked in his sweet voice, "Mom, can I have $10.00 to buy a game for X-box life?" Ahhhhhhhhhh........now it all makes sense!
Have a great weekend!!!!

Great pics of your son. Mine is 10 and he hasn't been letting me take pics like he used to either. Maybe I could bribe him with a prize;)

Oh, your card is fabulous! I love how you use Justrite stamps...your so clever, and out of the box with them that I don't even recognize them as Justrite stamps. I love the layout, the papers you used, and how you popped up the present.

And your pics of your son are priceless. I love 'candid' shots and not posed ones. They are the best.

What sweet pics of your boy. I was looking at T yesterday in the pool...he has lost all his baby fat in the last six months and it made me sigh! Looking forward to summer holidays to spend more time with him (even if he drives me crazy!).

Loving the mix of shapes on your card, that skinny shape and the small image...what a terrific idea for me to CASE!
