Do It Again!


In addition to riding his bike, this little guy is getting confident about his swimming capabilities.  A couple of weeks ago, our neighbor was throwing him up in the air.  So now, when we go to the pool, he asks to be thrown up in the air all the time. And it is followed by, "Do it again, do it again, do it again, DADDY!"  So sweet!  It's so hot here...the best thing to do is hang out at the pool!

I am getting inky again with my new Verve Stamps and played along with two challenges for the card below.
Posted by Picasa
The colors are inspired by the current Just Us Girls  color challenge and the card layout is inspired by this week's CASE Study.  I love Dawn from WPlus9's style...isn't her CASE Study inspiration card just gorgeous?

What a fantastic picture! Love that big smile on Marcel's face. :)

That leaf image is awesome and looks great in the coral colour. Like how you layered the sentiment too.

You did such beautiful work with these colors! This Verve set is sitting at my house waiting for me to get home and ink it up! I love the cluster of buttons and the vellum strip.

Isn't it funny how the summer holidays make the kids progress...no wonder they seem more grown up by the time school starts again :)
