Let's Party!

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a super awesome Christmas!  We had some family come in and spent a nice day together eating lots and lots of food.  haha! 

I am a bit of a gym rat and unfortunately right before Christmas pulled a calf muscle and have not been able to go to the gym (yikes).  It is driving me crazy not being able to go.  Hopefully soon I will be able to walk normal again and go and work off all that wonderful holiday food! haha!

Here's a sweet little bear wish you all a very Happy New Year!

He's a cutie called "Let's Party" from Lili of the Valley.  The paper pad is one of their pads by Nitwits called "Bonnets and Bowties".  I really love the pretty hot pinks and blues in this pad which allowed me to use my new Picked Raspberries distress ink with it.  I am very happy to have recently bought a lot of the newer limited editions that are a little brighter colors!

I have one more thing to show you!  My son is VERY talented in the computer graphics department and here is a matte painting that he did for a class.  This pictures combines 3-4 different photos into one.  I thought he did a wonderful job and I am printing it out and framing it because I love it so much! I asked him to make me one with a fairy for my birthday.

  You wouldn't believe what the photos looked like BEFORE this final picture. The girl in the photo was his girlfriend.  I was so impressed!

Here's my little guy!

Yep, those babies grow up so fast!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Dena
