Seeing this image...

really makes me crave the beach!

(and remember that we were supposed to move to the beaches of Florida~

instead we have visions of tumbleweeds)

Totally Rad for summer pictures and cards...

I followed the sketch using a wee little creative license

swapping the image area for the birthday photo and the tilted box for the image...

Ian's birthdays are synonymous with our Oklahoma anniversary.

I can't believe we've been here for seven years.

Prayers for you to have a wonderfully happy, healthy and creative week!

"What to make, what to make!???"

I pondered out loud en route to the studio.

Lucky for me the girlies heard me, and asked what I was off to create.

I replied, "I'm not quite sure...something that is NOT-a-Card."

"Mommy, what about a fortune teller!?"

The wheels started spinning then...

Oh the possibilities!

Sienna was quick to say that I could use real stamps or digital images, and yet...the most prefect answer was one of her stamps benefiting Autism.

Voila! All I needed was to think like 'almost 10 year olds!'

I can remember making these in grade school too.

The challenge for you this week at The Pixie Cottage

is to either make a "Not-a-Card" and/OR use this SKETCH...

Here's the girlies' project come to life...

Most "fortune tellers" have numbers written in for the second and third selection,

Sienna opted for differing sequins and sprinkles in quantities 1-8...

Meanwhile, Sierra happily tested and reorganized the old 'mommy markers'
*working ones will be used on the final step...

Let the fun begin, (as if CREATING was not the funnest part!)



"teddy bears"

Sierra's flap opened up to read "make your card 3-d"

here are the other options...

They made the "fortunes" to be a creative brainstorm agent...what should i add to my card/project...

Hope your day is full of smiles and blessings!

Thank you girlies!!!
