Hello to all!  First of all, I want to wish a Happy 13th birthday to my daughter, also my oldest child.  She is Autistic, high functioning and verbal, and is having a really rough go as her first year of middle school comes to a close and she embarks on her teenage years.  My sweet girl has no friends and her life is spent on the computer, which is pretty much the ONLY thing that makes her happy.  Thank goodness for her cyber friends.  If you find it in your heart to lift her up in prayer, I would be so grateful – her name is Peyton.  Many hugsSmile

Just 2 more days of school left and then kids are home for summer.  Obviously I love my children, but having them all home always presents its challenges – verbal fighting is the main issue but there’s also throwing things, beating on each other and stealing then hiding one another’s things.  Great fun for me – NOT!  LOL

We have a NEW CHALLENGE this week at CRAFTY SENTIMENTS and I sure hope you will come play along!  This week’s challenge is one of my favorites – WHITE ON WHITE (with colored image).  You are definitely going to want to head on over to CRAFTY SENTIMENTS and check out all the AMAZING work by the DT girls and if you have a chance, I hope you will pay a visit to their individual blogs.

You have until Monday, June 11 to come and join us.  You are not required to use an image from CRAFTY SENTIMENTS SHOP, but of course we would LOVE to see one.  So, come over and join the fun!!

My card was made using CRAFTY SENTIMENTS SHOP image “Scilla Fairy.”  I love this gorgeous image and had such fun coloring it with my Copics.   I thought she should be seated on a wall, so I drew in the top part with my Copics.  I cut her out with scissors.  All dies used are from Lifestyle Crafts, sentiment from MFT, flowers are from Petaloo.  Organdy ribbon is from JoAnn, papers are Bazzill and SU CS and DP from My Mind’s Eye.  Cuttlebug and Lifestyle Crafts embossing folders used as well.

Additional challenges:
CHEERFUL STAMP PAD – a sweet life
LOLLIPOP CRAFTS – flowers in bloom (focal point flower)
OOH LA LA CREATIONS – make it girly
TAMMY SCRAPIN CORNER – for the girls
CUTIE PIE CHALLENGE – die cuts/punches
THE RIBBON GIRL – use ribbon or lace

Gorgeous card Aud - love all the flowers going on there! Happy birthday to your daughter - I'm sure she'll find her place in the world - I'm a firm believer in there being a place for everyone. My youngest son has severe physical disabilities due to cerebral palsy but he's very bright and has carved himself a life he loves in achedemia at university, don't know what tomorrow brings but he's loving today! As for school holidays believe it or not when they're all grown up you'll miss those happy days! Hugs Judith x

A lovely WoW card - I so love them! Also Happy Birthday to Payton & happy holidays to you all, hope the sun shines & you have lots of outside fun not arguments & messing about. Kids, we all love them but they can be hard work at times. I love how they argue with each other, then you step in, then somewhere along the line, you end up being the bad guy & they are all fine!

My daughter just turned 13 on May 1st and I totally understand the challenge of having a teenager in the house. I shall be praying for you as you all adjust to being in each other's company more.
