Messenger bags

This morning Sierra and I sat down to do some creating. We both had messenger bags. Hers was part of a kit. My bag I have had for YEARS! It's been sitting in my garage this whole time.
We worked on both of ours together and it was a lot of fun!!!

Here's Sierra adding some stars to her bag.
Her bag
Here's my bag.
It's a little simple but I like my projects like that.
I stamped, glimmer mist, wrote, and did some other little things to it.

Thanks for looking!!!

A special day with my special girl!

The other day Sierra came home THRILLED about an event that a lady at the school was doing.
She was going to the tidepools in Pescadero to teach the kids about the different water animals.
She told us it was in Santa Cruz and until we got in the car and were given the directions that's where we thought we were going too. LOL
I love Pescadero. It's close to Half Moon Bay. It's such a beautiful area!!!
My little Sierra is a nature girl so she couldn't wait for Saturday to come so we could head out!
Paul and I took her and let her be free (kinda we were there with her) but let her get wet and do whatever she wanted and let me tell you, that girl was so happy!!!
She caught crabs, fish, star fish, and more!!
Here are some of the pictures of the day.

Love this little one!!! She always makes me smile!!

and the winner is....(plus other things)...

If you were to look at my calendar you'd see that the entire day is filled with stuff to do! I am so busy that I only get to play online from 4:30-5:30pm. (unless I get done with other things sooner).

One of the more fun things I got to do was go to Sakura. I love this company! I love their tools! Yep, I learned a lot today and one of the things is that the glaze pens is a tool.
So I'll be playing with a lot of fun tools that I was given!! Thanks!

I held a crazy fill in the blank contest last week! I read them all and could not stop laughing!! It was hard to pick a winner because they were all so good but did pick one.

Here's the story:

One day Suzy sat on the floor and ________ all day!! When she got up she noticed she had a _________ on her behind. She said___________ to ___________ and then they both _____________ til' they cried! The moral of this story is that ________________.

And the winner is: CHRISTINA PADILLA!!!
Here's her story:
One day Suzy sat on the floor and watched Glee all day!! When she got up she noticed she had a bump on her left bootie cheek. She said "ooh snap! "I look like Kim Kardashian! Holla!" to her husbo and then they both touched it til' they cried! The moral of this story is that you need to rotate cheeks while sitting down on them all day and daydreaming of Mr. Schue in order to get an even KimKA bootay, cuz that's how Sue C's it.
the end. xoxo cp

Christina, email me so I can send you out a package of fun goodies!!!

Off to do more work!! I'll have some more announcements really soon!
Have a great day!
