Cortney Kovack is coming to RunwayLOUD

Good morning! I can't remember if I had shared with you that Cortney is getting the opportunity to "walk" the runway in August. Runway Loud is doing a large fundraiser for the March of Dimes. We are so grateful for this amazing opportunity. They had their launch party yesterday, and since we couldn't be there, I had created a video to share Cortney's story. I hope you can take a few minutes to view it.
Have a great day!

Summer Invite Inside a Hot Dog!

Yep, an invitation stuffed inside a hot dog.  Why not?  Anything goes in crafting right? ;)
This invite was published in Northridge's Cricut Magazine. 
I love the Fast Food Cartridge from Provo Craft.  I assembled my hot dog and made sure not to glue the center at all.....only the edges behind the relish.  I wanted the "onion" to be able to slip in there easily. 
For the onion I cut an additional circle and ran it through my printer for all the details of the party. I took a soft yellow Copic marker and made my rings along the perimeter to resemble an onion.  Of course, I don't think onions usually have gingham bows and red gems....but remember anything goes in crafting! ;)
Cort and I are planning on hopping in the pool today! Nowhere to go. Nowhere to be. 
No makeup, no chasing, nothing pressing at all.....just relaxation today in our floaties!
Enjoy your day!

Mommy to Be and Other Misc. Stuff!

Good morning!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  I had a busy weekend of golfing, birthdays, and Father's Day! 
Today's card was a card I had created awhile back for Northridge Publishing's Cricut Magazine.  I just gave it to Cortney's teacher who is expecting her first baby in the fall. 
It was created using two cartridges, Baby Shower and New Arrival. 
I used a variety of designer papers against the black to make it pop a bit.  (no pun intended! HA!)
It has been busy around here for sure! 
Last weekend was my niece's dance recital and I finally edited a couple of the pictures from it. 
She loved wearing her ballet dress!
I adore her coy expression here..... 
This weekend was Brian's birthday and of course Father's Day.  Brian and I are lucky enough to have both our dads to celebrate with.  Here is my Father in law. :)
And my birthday boy! 
And my dad...... 
I have lots more to share with you since my camera has been on overload lately!  But I don't want to overwhelm you! ;)
Cort and  I are off to her orthopaedic doctor for a check up today.  It is an hour drive and takes up most of the day.  She will need surgery in the next year and I am waiting to see when the doctor thinks it will be the appropriate time.
Have a wonderful day my friends!
