SUMMER fairy

I have been having lots of fun with the girls on the Simply Betty Stamps fanpage of facebook. We have lots of fun, chatting and sharing our beautiful creations using Betty's delightful images! This month's challenge was to make a background for this adorable SUMMER fairy! Here is mine. I colored her with watercolor crayons, tossed on some flowers and stickles, and put her on a paper pack I had in the craftroom. Hope you like her! You can buy her in Simply Betty Stamps store

Summertime Fun

It is hot and humid most days here in Florida. When we moved into our home over 17 years ago, many people said that we would get tired of having a pool. Well, our family gets as much use out of the pool as we did when we first moved in! We love the beach, but packing up our stuff and trudging over the sizzling sand is not always enjoyable LOL. Up until recently, Gary had a 'no dogs in the pool' rule, because of the fur in the filter. Well, I don't know what it is with men and these little doggies. Gary has let Lucy in the pool on at least 2 occasions! First, he was joking about finding a remote control boat that he could put Lucy into. No remote control boat, but we found an inflatable for a few dollars , and Miss Lucy loves it !!!!
I wanted to make sure that she could swim, if she fell in, so I used a trick from Cesar Milan (the dog whisperer)...and YES, she can swim! She looks really funny, and heads right to the side of the pool and gets herself out. Anyway, hoping that you are all enjoying your summer!

A new challenge

Betty at SimplyBettyStamps is kicking my butt these days! She is tossing out wonderful challenges over at her blog. This one was very hard for me, not sure if it was the color combo (yellow, orange, black, and white) or just having a tough time finding my mojo. After coloring about a dozen images, I finally came up with one that looks acceptable to me. The image is Lilliana, and she can be found at Simply Betty Stamps
