Relax...it's your day!



AND...a BIG Happy Birthday to my friend America!


It's also time for House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge! #99 - Make a Splash

Make a creation that has water or shows water on a House Mouse & Friends, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies image. Get all the challenge details and prize info. HERE. Thanks Heather for this great challenge idea!

The layout I used is from this months Sketch For You To Try challenge over on Jen Del Muro's blog. You should go check out all the awesome sketches she has!

Notice the rabbit prints I stamped on the layer piece. Love those! The bubbles have some MAJOR sparkle from Blue Water Art Glitter.

On the tub, I painted on some new stuff I got from my friend Heather - owner of Fresh Brewed Designs called Inspirations Paints. This stuff is NICE!!!
It didn't run or smear. Where I painted it...that's where it stayed! It dried QUICK...and it doesn't rub off or feel sticky. I could go on and on. I was verrrrry happy with it! Now...just one problem...I want MORE colors!

I also sloppy-painted over the embossed bubbles piece. Seriously...think I need a gallon this stuff!

Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!

LORI!!!
This is BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the towel as an embellie. Makes it feel even more relaxing and soft.

I am also SO happy to hear that you like the paint!!! I am going to add MORE colors to the shop very soon, so you will have to let me know which ones YOU would like :D

HUGS and smiles!
