I was able to color it awhile ago and today I wanted to put it to use so I created this creation.
I hope you like all the little elements of it.
Here is my sweetie, Colten. He came home sick today but I used him as a tester of what Presten will be wearing on graduation day. My goodness his neck is going to bother him so.

Not all things in life are easy...just when it seems like smooth sailing then pop...a curve ball.
So me and Rob are having to learn to deal with these curve balls. At least we have each other and that is a big...well huge comfort!
I have just heard of another one of my friends from Middle school days that has just passed away...It breaks your heart to hear of these things and to know that many suffer from depression. Without God in their lives how are they to know the ever lasting life. So we need to share the gospel with each and every one...so they can make it to Heaven. I know I do not want to go anywhere else.
Well, I just wanted to share some words...as I do not have any crafts to share today.
We have an awards ceremony tonight for Presten's academics we will find out how much money he has made for University of Florida. Here's praying for a full ride. Smiles.... (A side note from tonight...he did not fair as well as we had hoped...Figuring he is second in the whole senior class you would think he would have done much better...Only $6,000 which doesn't even dent into what it costs for a year at his University.) I am definately disappointed but we will just pray that everything will work out.
Below, is a photo of some great antique jewelry I picked up at an Estate sale. I love finding such cool pieces. Why is the earrings from back then so beautiful...and beautifully made? hmmmm
That's all for now. I need to work on a mini album for my nieces 3rd shower next week. Baby should be coming soon...
Smiles...and hugs....I will be back soon with more creations not many as May is a busy month this year.

Then pick out your image that you would like to print...must be inkjet printer. Which most home ones are... Note that I learned...that I had a duh moment with was...No letters or they will be backwards.
Spray the image face down on your decorative paper....hold in place firmly while you do this. It does not matter if it goes over. I had no problems of the decorative paper getting ruined.
Okay....here are the stay cat's kittens. I know who the mom is and the dad. These two look just like the dad. He has squiggles all over him and we named him that. They parents are not people friendly but we put out food for them to keep them around. Great to have on the property.

I used my cricut/gypsy for this creation. Lots of inking and some gel pen.
Please pop over to my post below...I made another project you must see....
Showing all sides of the box...beach theme.
I wanted to make something for inside the box. This candle fits perfectly. It is a flameless candle I bought for $1 at the Dollar Tree. I tissue paper stamped the image...Tweety bird.
Papers are My Mind's Eye- Little Miss Muffet "delight" Purple Plumes Paper
I even used some Prima flowers and stickles to give them some glitz. Added lots of little goodies to make it pop. I am in all of the end project and will proudly hang it! My boys loved it too.
Entering this project in for Flower shower....over at http://fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com/search/label/Challenge%20Me%20Monday

The other flowers were made using my cricut. Cut two different sizes of pattern to get volume.
I have debated on if I should add anything else to the top portion...and decided not to.
