The Day has Arrived - Jellypark re-opens! :)

Coffee of the Day - Coconut Almond

The big day is finally here! Jellypark is now open in all of its brand new glory! Claire has been working non-stop to fill the aisles with so many lovelies for you to see! Please race over and take a looksie! you might even find a freebie digi if you take a peek! ;) Be prepared to smile a LOT though..... just warning ya!

Now once you finish there, refill your cup with your fave morning beverage, (or stop by here and I will top you off with some of my fresh brew!) and then hippity hop over to the Jellypark Friends Friday Challenge blog for the big Design Team announcement! Challenges will begin on Friday, July 15, but you will want to meet the new DT. so many amazing applications were received, and I truly thank each one of you who applied. A new term will begin Sept. 1, so another call will go out soon. Think about becoming a follower so you don't miss any of the challenges or news. Don't forget our group over at Paper Craft Planet. always lots of chatting going on!

In the mean time, be sure to stop by the new members' blogs and wish them a hearty hello!
Diane, Ruth, Suzie, Mel, Lisa, Tracey

I have a quick card using one of Claire's cuties. I wanted a card to celebrate our big day, so this adorable little girl with her mag cuppie seemed just perfect! Papers are from the Basic Grey Sweet Threads collection (and they have new releases today, too! hooray!!), with buttons from my collection, pink ribbon is May Arts, ric rac is from JoAnn's I think, and the little baby flowers are Prima. I added some shimmerz paint to the cherry, bow, and her pretty pink shoes. the cupcake is covered in this wonderful thick chunky clear glitter I just love!

The other day Claire gifted me with a fun blog award, so I would like to share this today. I am passing it along to my new Jellypark DT friends.

Here are the instructions:
1. Make a post linking back to the person who gave you the award.
2. Share 7 random things about yourself.
3. Award 7 recently discovered bloggers with this award and contact them to let them know they have won.

7 Things about me ~
  • I have a heart tattoo on my ankle and am searching for a new one. am trying to decide btwn getting it on the base of my neck or my foot.

  • Have always had a cat my entire life.

  • was never supposed to have children, but then had 3 sons in a 3 year time span. oh, that was a lot of diapers at one time!

  • attended Oxford University in England. hubby had to propose to get me to come back to States, otherwise I was considering a transfer from Univ. of Texas.

  • love to watch UFC. if the Octagon is on t.v., I am probably watching. :)

  • have a collection of 3 tiaras so far. yes, this seems to be in contradiction with the above factoid, but I am a unique individual!

  • hubby and I were the Bridal Couple of the Year for the state of Texas the year we got married as chosen by Bride's magazine. we were one of 8 couples in the running for the National title.

  • Fetch a Sketch - sketch (this challenge is run by new DT member, Ruth!)
    Ribbon Reel - 2 trims, brads, fruit element (cuppie cherry!) & photo colors if desired
