Layers of Color ~ Merci Bouquet

This is for my daughter who has gone (along with her brother) to camp at The Wilds this week. I wanted something girly and love the flowers in Merci Bouquet from Layers of Color. The colors on this were inspired by the color challenge from Just for Fun Stamps which is Chocolate, Orange and Yellow. There is a bit of paper piecing on this (the vase), as well as some Copic coloring on the image.

The older kids are off at camp this week so it is unusually quiet around here. Jeb is not quite sure what to do with himself and is content enough to follow us around. Every now and then you can hear him say, "Sis...Sis" and "Bu...bba." Just too cute!

I have a couple of pictures to share from this past weekend. Some dear friends from Virginia and I went to a Scrap and Stamp Art Show in Winston- Salem and got the opportunity to meet some sweet ladies... Here are two pics:

This is Linda Payne, me and Carla... Linda and Carla are current hostesses over on Stamp TV and are so very creative. We had watched a Tim Holtz demo (grunge paper, way cool!) by a staff member at the Enchanted Cottage.

Here is our entire group: Patti, Linda, Susan, Becky, Joan, Judy, Carla, Olga and myself... Just a sweet bunch of stampers. We laughed and created so many funny memories...I mean, who carries around 8 packs of nuts? I know someone who does! :o) Just too many fun stories to share and such a blessing to meet up together. Thanks ladies...can't wait until next year and hopefully even more will join us. Thanks for stopping by...
Blessings,
