If you believe you can - You Will ... -- and I DID IT!!!!!

Hi everyone!!

Today I am sharing a canvas I made over on the Blue Moon DT Blog! (It will be live on there at 8AM MST)




I took some Washi tape on the background and misted it -- once it was dry I peeled the Washi tape off to create my background look!!! And I used a mask from Crafters Workshop for my title! (all the supplies will be listed on the Blue Moon Blog at 8AM MST!) 








As mentioned .... yesterday was Brookie's first day of Kindergarten!!! She was AWESOME!!! So excited and since she has been going to daycare/preschool since she was a baby ... she had NO problems saying bye to Me and Daddy at her classroom... of course, it wasn't easy for US ... but for her ... no problem at all!! LOL! :)

Here are some pics of her first day!!!!!





And since she had her new Scooby Doo lunchbox -- (she LOVES Scooby Doo!!!) ... she made sure that Daddy's shirt coordinated with her lunchbox!! LOL! :) 


And I finally DID IT!!!! Yep... I created an ETSY shop!!!! It has the above canvas and 12 other ones in there!!!!




Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  62. I am going to dig out that first day of school photo of my oldest child! boy oh boy did I cry! She smiled and ran away from me! Sigh! Life!
    I wish Brookie the best of everything as she ventures into the world of kindergarten! I still remember my first day, the principal, the teacher and my mother trying to pry me off my mothers leg! Now I laugh because they going to have to pry me off my baby as he leaves for Kansas! If you see me at Homeland Security getting put into one of their special rooms you will know what I did! I may be old but I can jump over that gate!LOL! Airport security look out! I just want to tag along for a little while!
    Your photos are sweet and that Scooby Doo makes everyone happy!
