Viva La Verve

Happy Mother's Day!! I hope all you Moms out there are having a super fun day!! I'm getting exactly what I wanted - an entire day all by myself, uninterrupted, in my craft room!! YAY!! Then we'll go out for a nice dinner. One evening next week we'll be having a late Mother's Day dinner with my parents and Grandmother at Humuhumunukunukuapua'a Restaurant at the Grand Wailea - Yum! We spent yesterday morning Upcountry in Makawao at the Seabury Hall Craft Fair and had lots of fun! The weather was beautiful and the Jacaranda Trees were in bloom. Dean had a blast on the giant Slip-n-Slide and painting a flowerpot for Grandma Jo and a Pet Rock for TuTu (my Mom)! Here's a pic of Dean enjoying some traditional Taiko drumming (he LOVES both Taiko and Tahitian drumming) and trying to decide if he liked the GIANT and VERY steep slip-n-slide or not:OK, I know you're not here for my personal ramblings, so I'll get on with it! I had another chance to play along with one of the weekly Viva la Verve challenges this weekend and it was lots of fun! This week's "twist" on the sketch was to use blue and green and your choice of neutral (you guessed it - I went with some Kraft!!). Here's my take on the sketch:
Stamps: Petals and Stems, Circular Sayings (Verve)
Paper: Kraft, Night of Navy, Whisper White, Old Olive CS; Washington Apple DP (SU)
Ink: Old Olive, Bashful Blue (SU)
Accessories: Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder; button (Basic Grey); hemp twine; circle punches; dimensionals.

Head on over to the Verve Forum on SCS and play along for your chance to win Verve's next release!!!
