Color Challenge, Sketch Challenge and I learned something New!
This morning, my children and I went to the Milwaukee Recycling Center for a field trip. It was very interesting!
I am not sure about you, but 2 of my 4 children have a problem. As soon as you go anywhere and it looks like you should listen to learn something, we HAVE to go to the bathroom. It is a MUST. So before the tour started, I took them to the bathroom. Smart, eh? Then they wouldn't have any excuses. (I still ended up in the bathroom during the tour two more times.)
Anyways, the above sign was something I saw. I am ALWAYS telling my children they do not have to run the water on full blast that it is a waste. Soooo when I saw this sign, I HAD to take a picture of it so I would remember what it said to SHOW my 17 yo what the recycle center said about it. :) She will probably roll her eyes at me. BUT you know what my revenge will be? In about 15 - 20 years, she will think how BRILLIANT I was AND be saying the same exact things to her children! Yes...I know I am evil. heehee
I was looking at some blogs this morning and saw this sketch. I just loved it, so thought I would share it with you and use it for my inspiration today! Remember how I was looking for Lori Barnett last week? Well, this is from her blog. You can check it out HERE.
I also looked at SCS and their COLOR CHALLENGE today was Pink Pirhouette, Basic Black, Whisper White. Here is my take on it...
Here are a few more details:
Stamp Sets: Jesus is Born
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Pink Pirhouette
Ink: Copics, Black Brilliance.
Accessories: Gun Metal Stickles, Flame Dew Drops, Mini Glue Dots, Primas, Nestibilities, Cuddlebug, White satin Ribbon, Dimensionals
Do ya see my smudge? ARGH! I accidently put my finger in the ink pad and then smudged the card. I hate when I do that. Don't you?
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!
