Follow the Yellow Brick Road...

Hi everyone!!!

Well, tomorrow is the day of the Sugar Art and Fashion show!! I will be there all day! :) Wish me luck!! :)

I wanted to share some more canvasses I made for the event! :)




I made this using Graphic 45's Magic of Oz papers and the "Yellow Brick Road" stamp from the collection :)














Lots and lots and lots of Prima goodies on here :)






I also wanted to share a layout I made for the latest challenge at Use it Tuesday which is all about Spring!!! :)

I used Echo Park's Victoria Gardens, Summer Days and Sweet Day and Bo Bunny's stamps! :)

Now ... I know these photos look like Summer time -- HOWEVER, let me explain a little something about Arizona for people that have never been here --

Our "Spring" lasts for all about FIVE MINUTES! lol :)

For reals... not even kidding about this -- while a lot of people in the USA are still experiencing SNOW right now ... Arizona has been in the 90 degrees range for over a week now ... seriously .. the 90's ALL READY and it's not even April YET!! :)  This is the desert my friends :)
 
For those that live in Arizona and those that have visited here (Deana, Toni, Krista, Carri, Debbie, Joni??!!?? Back me up here girls!! LOL!) -- they will know I ain't lying about this!!


Sooooo back to my layout ... these photos were taken in the beginning of May 2010 -- so still "officially" Spring ... even though this day was probably close to the mid to high 90's!! LOL :)

We took Brookie to the zoo this day, and she was thrilled when she saw the 'water spraying' area! :)

So we let her run wild in there for a bit since it was SO HOT that day! :)


 










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

  13. GOOOOOD LUCK! Hopefully your show is somewhere cool!

    Our tuplips are JUST poking up here in NY despite the snow. And we are in that lovely stage of early spring where you have to put all the driveway rock back into the driveway from where it migrated into the lawn!

    Your art works are lovely! I am sure peeps will appreciate them and all the work you put into them!>

  23. Oh, my gracious! I'm so not ready for 90's, but the snow is almost melted; and we've had a couple of super, gorgeous, beautiful, spring days in a row. Kansas tends to have super short springs and falls, so winter can stick around for as long as it wants, as far as I'm concerned. I'm so not ready for 90's ;).

    LOVE the layout of Brookie! She looks absolutely precious in her little dress! And your canvas' are fit to be bought! Good luck, my friend!

  40. Nope. You're no liar! LOL. I wish you did have a spring that lasted longer than 5 minutes. I might visit more often!!! The canvases rock. The craft fair doesn't rock!! :-(

  41. Julie, I am so inspired by your use of everyday moments and how you don't just scrap the "special" moments! Your blog is making me want to dive right into making a "special because of the ordinary" dedicated page. LOVE this design and pics too!
