Altering projects...

I have really been into Bottle Caps lately...

I got a brilliant idea of creating these fun hats not only to block the sun from my friend's and daughter's eyes, but what better way to promote my company and the creativity it can inspire right?

Dawn's hat using Lavinia Portrait stamp 

My hat using Witch Betty stamp

Hats can be found here, and Bottle caps here.

Happy Valentine's Day and Simply Challenged #2

I hope you are all spending it with your sweetheart/the love of your life, and those you love the most!

I will be spending my day with my kiddos which happen to be the reason for my existence, and the evening with the love of my life... my husband!

I made this bucket for him.  Filled it with chocolates his absolute favorites and added a Cute Betty so he remembers me all day long at work!  Hee hee see how I work!

Today at SBS is also our second challenge of the year over at Simply Betty Stamps blog... Spritz, Spray, Mask, or Paint it!  All we had to do was one, two or all of the above on our project.  I chose to Mask my Valentine Betty and Spritz the image with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Raven and Cosmos, of course unfortunately I covered up the bottom part of my Spritzed image and so you can't see the pretty pink. 

I loved how it turned out... cute yet a little grunge metal!  I am very into those awesome Bottle Caps lately! Well, time for me to finish three more buckets for my kids and their teachers!

(four hours later) I finished the rest I wanted to make...

Here they are:

For Christian

For Steven (Christian's Best Bud)

For Rio

And for Christian's teacher Julie

Don't you all worry, I did not forget Jude, he gets a little something different than candy.  He gets a day at Disneyland with Mommy and daddy!  He doesn't need the candy, he's hyper enough!  LOL

Hope you all have a wonderfully romantic and loving Valentine's Day!

Happy Birthday my sweet little lady!  You are the best part of me.  You are always there for me and comfort me during some of my most stressful times!

I wish you only the very best Rio!  I love you more than you will ever know!
As you grow closer to becoming an adult I feel sad, excited, happy and proud.  Whatever the future holds for you, I know you will make it the very best future for yourself.  You are so bright, wacky, and pure joy to be around.  I know you will be successful in life whatever you chose to become!

Happy Birthday my reason for living!
I of course took this picture a week ahead of your Birthday, yes I had the layout planned, as the image was already colored.  I love your Birthday present choice, it makes me realize that you are still a kid at heart and that is pretty amazing!  You are one ROcKin' little girl!  Well, little in my eyes!

Love Mommy!
