I hope everyone is enjoying what is left of Summer! I know we are here.

We have been busy here, with all next week being FULL of appointments :C Between back to school check ups, Alexa’s bazillion appointments on Wednesday, Jay’s stuff and play dates, call me insane by weeks end! PLUS I’m wrapping up my newest My Timeless Template samples for ya!

Jay is recovering from his back surgery quite well πŸ˜€ He has a follow up on Monday.Β  He still can’t drive or sit upright. He has to either stand, or lay down. He is getting antsy, and I have to keep reminding him what NOT to do. At least he can COOK! LOL! That is all I care about for this stent of time, not being able to do much πŸ˜€ I loathe cooking.

On another personal note, so many asked to see my girls bedroom with the bedding from Target πŸ˜€ Its a REALLY cute set.

Here you go!

Girls beds with stick on wall decals (Amber and I placed each one in very specific areas! LOL!)

Amber’s Corner (sorry for dark icky photos)

Alexa’s Corner

I HAD to get the matching owl pillow! Its the perfect addition for their beds.

The lamp was like $10, and I stuck a decal on that so it matched the room! LOL! Cheap & easy, and it peels right off later πŸ˜€

This is another wall of their room

Another view-with animals peeking out from everywhere! LOL!

Then one more-

So basically 2 okgs of decals covered their room πŸ˜€

Once Jay’s back is healed we are getting new carpeting and stuff-so YEAH! That will be nice.

OK sorry for the detour! Back to the regular scheduled post-

Anyway-the weekend is here, and it is time for an Inspiration Challenge!

Seeing these little skirts (or aprons-no sure! LOL!) Hanging on a line really called out Summer to me!

Β So this is the challenge today.

Link your creations HERE!

Next week I will pick the top 5 entries, and link their blog/gallery here πŸ˜€

Here is card #1 I did

I loved the stripes and colors in this inspiration piece, so I went with that! What a FAB color combo this is too πŸ˜€

Lately its been ALL work, no play, so I took advantage of the challenge, to pull out some fun stamps I have yet to get ink on πŸ˜€

This one is from The Greeting Farm! This is Miss AnyaΒ I so love all their stuff πŸ˜€ Really cutesy, which is SO me! I find I buy it all, but don’t USE it! So I’m trying to USE what I have. Then I can justify buying the latest & greatest! LOL!

I used my NEW! Labels 9 die cut for this one too, along with some OLD SU! rub on’s to complete the look

Then I had so much fun I had to do ONE more πŸ˜€

I want my Mummy

OMG! I have had this uber cute monster Argus with Teddy-from Paper Make Up, for an eternity! I thought the image was so cute, that I had to get it immediately. So, I did, then never got to using it. Don’t you hate that? Or you get to use something like ONCE then never again, or you forget about it! LOL! I hope I’m not alone on that one, or I have serious explaining to do to Jay! LOL! I’ve been getting better about impulse shopping when it comes to STAMPS, but accessories and paper/ribbon/embellishments/tools, and other stuff like that is my COMPLETE downfall! Can’t help it.

Anywho, the apron with the pink base and aqua polka dots REALLY caught my eye, so I used this lil monster, with dots, and them made my own paper to match! Now THAT is fun inspiration πŸ˜€ I colored the teddy all freaky-since its like a monster teddy. I also added Googley Eyes to Argus teh monster. I think its cute like that πŸ˜€

Since the monster LOOKED scared, I used the sentiment “I want my mummy” fromWitch Way to the Treats Centers & Borders Round 1-3/16” , mixed with the Spider BOO! image to give him/her something to LOOK scared about πŸ˜€Β 

I thought it was cute πŸ˜€

So now I will feature the TOP 5 choices, from last weeks Saturday Sketch, from those who joined in our challenge Check them out OK!

This feature will be called My Time to Shine πŸ˜€
