Bo Bunny and Masking

yeah, baby! it's the weekend...what a WEEK?!?!?!?! i taught my first class this week at a local community college and am totally stoked it is over...i got the first class jitters out of the way. i am so looking forward to next week and hoping and praying this is a new career path for me, i have always wanted this and worked so hard for it. I have been playing around with my instructor website all week, brain keeps yelling at me to get off the p.c. hey, at least i am not on here scouring the internet for all the new cha goodies, right? ;)

besides that...i got some time to scrap last night and made some cards. it felt good to snuggle in the whole with some vino and paper and chill {sigh}.

Here is a card i did for the BoBunny sketch this week. It is a BBQ Invitation. I just loved the Calypso line, BBQ'ing is a summer staple in our house and so is kissing the cook ;)

Of course...all these projects have Core'dinations on them! today is the last day for our contest so make sure you check it out!




For this layout, I cut out this cool swirl paper from BoBunny and it totally reminded me of water. so i traced it on a scrap piece of paper, cut that out and then used it as a mask...this way it would match the cut out. then i adhered the patterned "off" a bit so show off the masking.

These are photos of my crazy hubby, brain {that is my nickname for him for those of you that don't know that-his real name is brian--get it ;}, my dad and brother-in-law getting the paddle boat to work...turns out the rudder wasn't down so they kept going in circles. it amazes me that i even got the camera out between laughing and crying so hard.

So you finally got the first class out of the way. That had to feel good! I can tell you are over your nervous spell...I can feel a different vibe in your posts! LOL! Love your card and your LO is way cool...great idea with the masking.

I'm sitting at my camper keeping my fingers crossed that the internet service holds on until I visit a few folks. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
