Not for wimps !

Hi friends, How was the week end ? Hope everyone is enjoying the summers. I loved this weekend. After what seems like ages, we went to movies and saw Transformers. I really dig GM cars and I love how the entire transformaion process happens to the cars in the movie but the graphics and stunts in this transformers was simply “OUTSTANDING”

The boys enjoyed a good many hours at the Dubai Ski. They have a new super pass for dhs 200 each child, that entitles them to four of the more adventurous rides in addition to the regular snow park. I loved watching the boys going crazy in the snow when the temperature outside was 45 C ~ Yukh to that.

  • Boys are amazing  ~ they never tire ~ first they talk about whats going to happen in the movie endlessly, BEFORE we see the movie.
  • Then they talk hours together about how the action scenes took place, how the helicopters fell, optimus prime, the kid etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc …… if you were actually counting those etcs then you know how annoying it can be when they go on and on and on …..
  • The weird thing is …. while the movie was on ….. Their 3D glasses were glued to them and their heads in just one direction for the whole 2 hours !!! Not a word out of them !!  ~~~~ While mom kept going,” wow”, “awesome”, “did you see that ???”  “Holy moly, now whos going to save them”, “Oh fish, his arms gone …… ”  Writing this right now, I know, they must feel the same way about me while they were excietedly watching the movie. Ok, I get it, Role reversals right ?? Ok Ok, I got it. I talk when they watch, they talk when I watch them !

Ok so lets get into what I have gotta share with you today ~~~~

This here, is a relatively simple plaque on foam board, with a simple message and two different period Moms. The office going/shopping away, confident mom dressed in bright summery colors while the other happy- at- home, super efficient homemaker, sewing away with all her worldly wisdom. Both with equally difficult and demanding jobs. Cooking, kids, office, deadlines etc. Not an easy task by any measure. Hence I really took to this sentiment.

Buttons for the homemaker and brads for the Career mom. Both the digistamps are from my friend Nikki from Melon Headz. Please remember to drop over at her site to pick some out-of-the-world free digital stamps.  The sentiment on the die cut  is also digital stamp, however, unfortunetly, I dont recall, whom does it belong to.

Love the check base DP ~ love the colors used in this project ~ truly timeless. The ribbon is satin.

 Here is the wall hanging.

Teddy Love ~ Wall hanging.

Hello Ladies. And how have we been today? Well, I think by now, most regions of the world have gotten a glimpse of spring already, isnt it ? Well, going by how and whats going on with the world climate these days, just enjoy the Spring as best. Picnics, bbqs and lots of outdoorish stuff. In this part of the world, we are dreading summer which is already knocking on our doors.

Anyways, enough of the weather report !! So gladly, this will be the last project of the Trash to Wall hanging series for this month. This little wall hanging was made with a distressed young friend in mind.  Very simple message about sharing some affection and assurance to someone. The little lad with the teddy is a digi stamp, while there is a fabric teddy also, paper pieced next to the swing. 3 pretty green flowers with 3 brads, and 3 polka dotted ribbons embellish the project. The base is pale pink DP, embossed with tiny flowers. The sentiment is also digi stamp.

    Ms Fashionista ~ Wall hanging.

    I’m going to turn 40 this July but I am still a real sucker for anything girly, swirly, flowery, blingy and just plainly “pink”. I know, by now, I should start telling myself to grow up and grow up  old gracefully but nah, I think, I wanna hang onto this very flirty bright colored feeling. Its so cheerful and probably comes naturally to women anyways.

    This wall hanging is also a part of the Trash to Wall hanging series. I know your wondering, how many more have I stamped out !! Answer : MANY. lol  To get the full story of what the base of this frame is and how I procured it. Please visit here.

    This plaque/wall hanging carries true spring colors ! Aquamarine base, green, pink,and yellow colors. The dress is a glorious digi stamp !! Oh my !! When will I ever be able to fit into something like that ?? Ah Like Never !!!! 😦  The three fabric purses are one of my favorites too with the tiny flower brads  embellished over them. I have had this tiger print ribbon stacked somewhere in the draw for  like forever and never created such a bold card/creation which called for it. I think, its looking awesome against the blue backdrop. You would think, so many colors just dont fit together in the color wheel and yet somehow, when you piece them, they just tie in beautifully.

    One thing I realized is that I have totally gone addicted to destressing any and all my projects. Its fun, it leaves a lovely look and feel to the projects and I think, It also helps kill the empty look of a border.

    Incase you havent noticed, there is this really cute butterfly charm tied to the ribbon. Ofcourse the highlight is the sentiment. Such a dashing and bold statement. Love it completely.

    Thats it for now. For all of you, who are going to be graced by the beautiful and colorful, spring. Have a fantastic time enjoying this precious time. And for those of you who are still stuck in the snow, like my cousins in Canada, please remember to still be thankful that your blessed with snow and not a tsunami. Please keep the people of Japan in your prayers and lets hope for the best for them.
