In With The New…..

from the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog that went live on July 1.  One of my very favorite new stamp sets in the catty is Field Flowers.  I found this card by Mindy Backes and just had to use these colors and First Edition papers for my easel card thank you.  I loved the way it turned out.  The new In Color Calypso Coral saw ink for the first time as well as the new Lace Ribbon Border Punch.  I did a lot of sponging with Blushing Bride, added new ruffled ribbon, black striped grosgrain ribbon, some black pearls and a little crown embellishment.  Can’t wait to make this again!

First Fourth

A short little post today so I can include these cute, cute photos of Isabella on her First Fourth.  Actually, the photos were taken on the day before since she and her family left to go back to Franklin that night.  We had a nice photo shoot, but getting a smiley baby picture is hard work.  She senses the camera before she sees it and intently stares at it refusing to smile.  So to get a good smiley shot, I have to work really hard.  Her daddy can usually get a smile out of her- so I called for him to help.  Here’s my favorite:

First Fourth

And, here’s how we got there:

Needless to say we had a wonderful holiday weekend.  And I hope yours was wonderful too.
