Hip Hop, I'm still alive!

Man, I have been THE worst blogger this week! Billy and I both took the week off work and we're really enjoying ourselves! We've done alot of shopping, lots of movie watching, and lots of hanging out together:) The weather hasn't been ideal this week so it's easier to keep him home with me than on the golf course;)

So since I have been chilaxin' with Billy all week, I haven't made alot of cards! Any crafty time I have has been spent on a friends baby's book. I did 3 two-page spreads so far this week though, not too shabby! I should have the book done by the time the baby graduates:D
I did create one card this week though, and I used Everyday Adorable again:) I have been really loving this kit!
I stamped "Grandma's Frame" on the front of my card base and then cut a circle to fit inside it from a piece of Bella Rose dp by SU. I saw this layout in the Spring SU! Catty and it really inspired this card:) The chocolate circle with a pink heart is from "Confession: I {luv} Unity". Another SUPAH fun scrapbooking kit! The stamps in Confession are all perfectly sized for scrapbooking, so check it out:)
The sentiment is from Everyday Adorable also. I colored it in with Pink Stickles. The keys (yep, you guessed it! From Everyday Adorable) were colored with a copic and then cut out. I threaded some jute through the keys and through a hole in the heart. Did a little faux stitching and some REAL hand stitching and the card is complete:) EPLS (that's Buck's word, lol!)

Well, I guess it's pretty obvious that I didnt' have any of the teacher stamp sets being showcased this week so I apologize for being out of theme again this week! Hopefully you have plent eye candy from the rest of the team:) Your next stop is the lovely and sweet ***BROOKE!***
