it's Thursday!

today's hip hop is celebrating mom's today....

and in true fashion for our house, I am NOT in the picture. I have about 6 pictures of me...I keep asking for someone to take one!
This photo was taken during our spring break a few weeks back at the ocean- there is this long cliff of rocks, and of course my son had to climb all over and as far out as the cliffs went. This is the three of them before the climbing adventure.


Here is one I took of my daughter last night- she got a new hat and glasses, won't take them off!

onto the cards... ;)
This one is a bit more than my normal cas self- and I like how it turned out- it uses Tiny Trinity, paper is basic grey.
This one is a one of my new fave sets! I love ALL the sayings that came with the birdie inspiration! I cased it from a card I had published in CARDS a while back-

and this one is WAAAAY out of my normal clean and simple, but....it's growing on me! ;)
It's from this month's DD sketch. What do ya think? I still like CAS better I think!



Make sure to head over to Lynn's blog next! Pin It Now!

Fun pics! Love your take on styles outside of the cas realm. Always fun to watch people stretch their comfort zone. Very well done.

I love the cards especially the last one! You may be clean and simple, but you do a great job on non-clean and non-simple too!
