Here’s my first creation in 6 weeks…..for Lauren’s Color Challenge! I love this new set from PTI called Vintage Picnic. The baskets are so cute and the set can be used for so many holidays. This color combo was one that I had never used before, but it is always good to “step outside of your norm”…..seems like I’ve done that a lot lately with just life in general.
I colored the flowers with my copic and I colored the leaves with my watercolor crayons. The basket was paper pieced with PTI polka-dot patterned paper. My Mom made the flower embellishment. I added a button to make it pop. I even got out my cuttlebug for this to create the swiss dots in the background. Overall I really like how my card turned out!

We had a good time shopping yesterday. I got a new body pillow and it made sleeping last night so much more comfortable. I know I’m only half way along, but with number 3 I am big and already having trouble sleeping. Should be fun over the next several months! We found a few new outfits for the new baby yesterday. It’s still hard to look at boy clothes as I’m always thinking about Ethan. I did find these cute little blue jeans with little roll up cuffs that matched the pattern on the button up shirt. It’s too cute and is something that I know Ethan would have picked out for the new baby. I love to buy clothes and dress my kiddos up, it’s just something I enjoy.
Ava did good yesterday as she is used to getting a 2 hour nap and didn’t fall asleep until we were on the way home around 8:30. We met up with a college friend of mine and her daughter for supper so Ava perked up and had a good time playing with her. Overall it was a good day to get away and just do whatever. My biggest purchase yesterday was a purse. I’ve needed one for a long time, but I have one from AMM that hold pictures of my kiddos and I was really looking for something similar. Well, I decided on this other purse and I purchased these clear picture frames that were key chains and I’m going to hang 3 of them from the handle so I can still show off my kids on my purse. I’m going to hang them at different lengths so you can see them….I’ll have to share a picture later once I get it all put together.
Hope all of you have a great weekend. I still need to finish up my stamp area, but I think today we are going to go hang out with some friends tonight. I’ll hopefully be back soon with some more “creations”! Thanks for stopping by!
