Luckily for us here in California, spring has sprung! I feel bad for those that are still knee deep in snow but I know you'll catch up to us really soon. We had a glorious day this past weekend so quite a few pictures made it in this weeks spread.
While sitting in the driveway (in the passenger seat) before we headed out shopping I asked Simone to take some pictures, her funny responses provided these shots. She is such a ham! She had an Egg Hunt at preschool last Friday so I snapped a few pics of that since the parents weren't invited to attend (dislike!). I've been hanging on to the wood veneer hello card for awhile and needed to fill a hole and it was perfect to document the first day of spring. The whole bottom half is from this past Sunday. I can't believe Simone braved the cool water temps but she did it, more than once too. The split photo is from a new template set that I just got, lots of cool ones are included if you are looking for some good small size templates.
Here is the left side. I was playing around with some watercolors and decided to use the piece I made as my title card. You can see it closer down below. I stitched the border and underline with some neon pink embroidery floss and added some woodgrain thickers. The rest is just little bits from the week; new fresh hair for me, a new photo editing program that I downloaded and love (and used on several of this weeks photos), some yummy dessert at a nice dinner out with family, a photoless story that I wanted to capture, an awesome deal on some shoes, some fro yo, a birthday party, conquering a fear, TV for her and TV for all of us.
Here is the closer look at the watercolor and stitching. The watercolor set I used was this one from Target, it gives really descent color but I'm still contemplating these, because they're just so cool.
I hope you all have a lovely week, Simone is on Spring Break so were trying to keep her busy as best we can. At least the weather is cooperating for us again this week!
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. If you are looking for an editing program RadLab is amazing and its on sale right now, 40% off and will be thru the end of this week. I also used the code 'totallyrad' and got an additional 15% off. Here is a link if you need one (FYI, this is not an affiliate link, I get nothing for posting it). I had some issues getting it to run on my Photoshop Elements 9.0 but once I got it straightened out its working great.
