Friday Favorite #3

Right now my favorite Netflix tv series is ....................PSYCH!!!  Oh my gosh, if you haven't seen this, you really need to.  I started to watch the first season and kinda lost interest but then a few weeks ago started watching again and LOVE it!  Ash and I watch an episode here and there, and if we have time, we will watch several episodes, one right after the other.   we're Psych buddies, so we can't watch an episode without the other person there!!

  It is a little goofy, certainly not a serious crime drama, but there are so many of those on tv anyway.  This is a little light hearted, a ton of goofy, and the chemistry with Shawn and Gus is plain awesome!  The more I watch, the more I pick up on all the little's just a fun series and I have LOL'd many, many times.  So...if you're looking for a new series to watch, give this one a chance and let me know what ya think.  Or, if you already watch...are you a fan?  Think it's dumb??    Who is your favorite character??  Let's talk! :D

Here is one of my favorite scenes from Season 2 episode 1 called "American Duos"  Shawn and Gus perform Tears for Fears "Shout" ...........SO FUNNY, I had to rewind and watch several times.  I was a child of the 80's and loved Tears for Fears, so I guess this just struck me as hilarious, esp Shawn's hair...perfect!!

A few more stills from the show that I love!

That's it for my Favorite Friday #3.   What is your favorite tv show right now??? Do tell! :)

Just made another quickie card with the sketch over at Some Odd Girl and used the theme from
{PIN}spirational challenge (TOP 3)  to put this together.  I used Soccer Tia for this card, colored with copics, papers and banners from my stash. 

That's it for my quickie we are getting out of the house and enjoying this beautiful day!

Happy B-day Dad!

I used this cute freebie from Torico over at Birdie Brown for this card and used the sketch from
Seize the Birthday (Birthday Honors) challenge blog.  I am entering  both of the challenges on those sites. 

I used copics, some paper from my 6x6 paper pads...various ones, a couple of brads, and colored white sticker letters with my copic to match the color a little better to the paper and brads. 

I will stick this in my stash to use for my dad's birthday in OCT....never can  be too prepared!! ;)

Hello cupcake

I made this card to enter into the monthly challenge over at Some Odd Girl  (Won fave pic)  it is based on a super cool sketch and I used Baker Kaylee for my image.  I colored with copics and used different scrap papers from several 6x6 paper pads.  I also used my copics to color the wooden HELLO word bubble!!

Also, over at the Some Odd Girl community, there is an ODD IDOL contest going on and voting is open right now through Wednesday.  I've made it into the top 15 and now am just waiting til Friday to see if I go on to the next round.   I don't know the results and I can't tell you which card is mine, this is supposed to be a completely blind voting contest based on which entry best follows the theme.  The suspense is killing me, but I'm crossing my fingers and hoping to move on!! ;D

You are Fabulous!

I used this cute freebie Wryn from Tiddly Inks to enter a few challenges. 

I colored her up with my copics, cut her out with my Spellbinders label 25, inked around the edges, used some twine, a border punch and embossed the green paper with my cuttlebug folder.  The sentiment "fabulous in every way" is from Some Odd Girl.

I am entering in the following challenges:

Tiddly Inks-use a Wryn
+Moving Along with the Times-Embossing
+My Craft Spot-Ribbon or Twine
Frosted Designs-Punches-border punch

Hope you all have a great weekend.  I have a long weekend with not much on the schedule except for maybe movies, reading, and coloring!! :)

Friday Favorites #2

This installment for Friday Favorites #2 is being brought to you by Disneyland/Travel/and Road Trips.

This first picture is a favorite and has been burried in an old photo album, until just recently when Ashlie went looking for a Throwback Thursday pic. 

This is our first family trip to Disneyland. Love the look on my kids face....oh the pure excitement, and we didn't even have to leave the drive way yet!!

Now...this pic is our last family trip to Disneyland, which was taken last year.  Maybe not as excited as they were 15 years ago???  Ha!    This was not long after we left the driveway!! ;)

And here are a few favorite Disney pics

That's all I have for today. Hope you have a great Friday and a fabulous holiday weekend... (U.S) :D

Friday Favorites

I thought it would be fun to do a post on Fridays  all about what my favorite things are at the moment. Sometimes I might add one thing, two or more. It might be a quote, a food, a pic, a project...who knows, maybe a color combination or something that I find along the way that is new to me or an old favorite!

So here are my picks for the first Friday Favorites.

The Piano Guys.  Ok, if you have heard these guys, then you know what I am talking about.  They are beyond AMAZING!  They are also are local to my hometown and I went to school with Paul (middle in front) and my friends son just started working with them... if you haven't heard of them, please do yourself a favor and look them up on YouTube.  WATCH them, I mean actually watch them.  Steven Sharp plays the Cello and because my daughter plays violin, I'm partial to string instruments, but everyone involved exudes pure JOY, seriously it puts a huge smile on my face just watching them.  They have a bunch of videos, they have a Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Titanium, Coldplay featuring Alex Boye, they have collaborations with other artists, and the videos are a visual masterpiece.  Seriously, I know I'm just rambling about these guys, but they are plain AWESOME and give me serious goosebumps!

This quote. It speaks to me right now. Not that I'm going to go out and change the world, discover some great miracle cure for disease or win American Idol, Top Model or a Noble Peace Prize...BUT, I can change my tiny little corner of the world. I can change me.  I can change my attitude and I can change the way I see life and respond to the challenges and trials that come my way.  THAT....I can do.


Love Potion #31-Baskin Robbins.  So divine, it is only seasonal and my local BR is almost out....I'm hoping to get one more pint before it is all gone until next year.  It is a little bit of heaven for my taste buds! :D

Paris Nights by Bath and Body Works- my bestie got me the lotion and perfume for my Christmas/birthday present and I seriously LOVE it!  Thanks Steph :)

Well, that's it for this Friday Favorites....a little something for the soul, the sweet tooth and the body!!  

What are your favorite things right now???
