my lovely mentor, stamp goddess and all around talented artist asked to contribute to her blog.  of course!!
i can't believe it's been  seven years since i walked into colorful creations and met jenn. i have learned so much from her and about her. especially, her love of the beach!  and flip flops:)   for the month of july, everyday will feature something beachy, oceany, summery.  jenn truly has a big heart, she is donating her craftiness in a silent auction for her friends mother, sue, who has cancer.  i am also giving this card to the basket of goodies. jenn, thank you for the wonderful memories.

happy birthday dylan!!

my little guy is double digits now, 10 years old. when did that happen?! he's my youngest, still huggy and lovey, thank goodness. here are the cupcakes i brought to his class. i think they turned out pretty dang cute!! nothing like some baking admiration from a bunch of 4th graders, haha!!
little huggy bear is floating in a lifesaver gummy, along a graham cracker crumb beach. he's getting ready for a muses's fun in the sun. nice segue don't you think?:)
