Happy Birthday Marci & Luka!

I can't believe Marci and Luka turned 1 this month - it seems like just yesterday that we were planning for their launch to the world. And they've done so many new things in that time. Luka has taken up several sports, Marci, not to be outdone, is sporting too. They've been to far-off places and fairytale worlds. And I can't wait to see what they come up with next!

To celebrate this wonderful milestone, we're hopping (if you didn't get here from Cindy's blog head on back to the La-La Land Crafts blog so you don't miss a stop!) and giving out some GREAT blog candy containing the following items:

I made a fun little Birthday Card to celebrate Marci's birthday. And the fun part? If you live in the Bay Area, you can make it too! This is one of 3 cards my students at Memories Live On in Cupertino will be making on September 25th (click on the class link at the top of my blog for more info.) Genie Marci is one of my favorite new stamps...she's so much fun to color. Especially with those sheer pants and sleeves!

Speaking of coloring, here are the copics I used to color this cutie:
face/skin: E50, 51, 53; R00; RV000, 21, 25
hair: YR30, 21, 23
clothes: RV000, 21, 25

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to keep on hopping to see what amazing creation Jeannette has come up with - I know you won't be disappointed! And remember after finishing the hop to go back and leave your comment about which stamp was your favorite of the hop!!

I'm still alive...

...and kicking! Sorry for the long, unscheduled hiatus everyone. Life decided I needed a summer vacation from blogging...and I think it was good for me. I can't promise to be very consistent over the next 2 months while trying to get Jackson ready to start preschool, start a new business, and train a new puppy (what were we thinking?!?) but I'll try to get here at least once or twice a week!

Here's Jack with our newest addition, Coconut!

Some quick news, and then a few cards from before my summer stamping break.

Julia (my lovely dd) is now on a Design Team!! I'm so proud of her, and all her work. She is creating projects for the new La-La Land for Kids blog! She just posted the team's first contest yesterday, so be sure to check it out. And if you have crafty kids, we'd love it if they played along!!

Marci is celebrating her first birthday over at La-La Land Crafts this month, which means a ton of specials and a great contest with a great prize!!Be sure to go check them all out! And...we've got a birthday blog hop coming up too! :-)

Here are a few things I made for end of year thank you's at school and my dh's bday card. All stamps used for these are from My Favorite Things. Enjoy!
