Celebrate Prom!

Good morning!  Tonight is Cort's very last prom.....I know I will be crying a bucket of tears.  Her journey has taken a new direction and all that she has known has changed.  The change has been good, but nevertheless, a change.  It is definitely bitter sweet.  
In honor of Cort's last prom, how about a pretty lil' dress box today?  
The dress was cut out using my Silhouette.

I stamped the dress with JustRite's new, Create a Flower Garden     stamp.  It was stamped with Versamark and embossed in white.  I sponged Tim Holtz inks around the dress panel in pink, orange, and yellow.  I splattered a bit of water over it and colored in the flowers with my Zig Watercolor Markers. I added a sentiment from SRM Stickers, and tied twine from the Stamp Simply Store.

Even though prom is actually tonight, I always take Cortney's individual pictures a couple of weeks in advance.  This allows me to concentrate on taking pictures of her with her friends. 
My sweet happy girl...... 
Prom 2016!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Water Colors and Stickers!

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning my friends! I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today! I love Donna Salazar's Oak Tissue tape and that became the inspiration for the rest of the card.
I water colored this flower stamp by Stampendous in shades of brown, red, and gold. I added pearls to the centers using SBby3L's DODZ™ Mini. The sentiment is by SRM Stickers.

The flower was adhered to some Girlie Grunge twine and then layered over the background created with the Oak tissue tape. The rest of  the layers were given depth with SBby3L's Crafty Foam tape. I added a few sequins and again attached them with the new DODZ™ Mini . Much easier than glue!

And now for my continue home improvement saga......
Dum, dum, dum.........
I had left a can of brand new white enamel paint on my kitchen table because I have been painting all of the baseboard on the main floor.  My dog must have been scratching at the table looking for food when her paw caught the edge of the handle.  She managed to pull the entire can down.  An ENTIRE gallon of white paint spilled on my brand new hardwood floors.  I was hysterical calling for Brian.  He grabbed the dog and threw her in the shower. (She couldn't get out and track more paint throughout the house)  We spent 3 1/2 hours cleaning up paint.  I ruined my clothes, 7 beach towels, and entire can of paint, (obviously), and 2 packs of new washcloths.  We got the paint up, but due to the amount of scrubbing we did, we managed to take off the varnish.
I was in tears.
I called my floor guy and he is going to come out this week to buff it and put another coat of polyurethane on the floor.  Unfortunately that means I have to empty out my kitchen.
Keep your fingers crossed that he can match the other side of the floor which is my living room.
My life is never dull
Some day we will laugh about this right? 
Oh, and the dog?
Don't worry, she lived to see another day. ;) 

Have a great one!
