I wanted to thank everyone who gave me links and suggestions as to where you all buy your paper online. I found some new places I hadn't discovered before and ones I'll probably frequent a lot now. I still can't quite bring myself to buy paper online yet though. Paper pad collections, like those from Basic Grey and MME are a no-brainer, but buying individual sheets just terrifies me! Maybe I need to start slow and just buy a few sheets first....hmmm, yeah, that's what I'll do. :) Baby steps.
I got some AWESOME happy mail last Friday....some new Claudia & Co stamps!! :D But unfortunately I can't show them to you just yet. :( You'll see them in a couple of weeks, but in the mean time, here's another look at sweet Daisy Puddle Jumper!
I think this is the second time I've colored her bellbottoms in red! It's weird how it worked out that way. Anyhow, I colored her up with my reinkers and aquapainter brush, then cut her out and popped her on dimensionals. The layout is borrowed from this week's Friday Sketchers #93 sketch and I used scraps from my paper stash. There's a combination of paper from SEI and Scenic Route, which, I think, work really well together! They're both bold and colorful - just like little Miss Daisy. :)
Guess what else we got in the mail on the weekend? A letter from the Keene District School Board notifying us that we will have to register our little girl for Kindergarten! Eeek! Syd beamed ear to ear when I told her what the letter was about. She's soooo excited to be a big kid! I'm ready too, but this just means the pressure is on to have another child soon. When is it appropriate to fall pregnant soon after starting a new job? My gut says one year, but Syd will be 6 and I don't want the age gap to be that great! Any thoughts??
