Survived family time

I survived the family time in Minnesota, and we had a wonderful time going to the Mall of America and saw "Hairspray" at the Chanhassen dinner theater.  My kids love going to musicals and have done so since they were little because my husband conducted shows.  We have taken them to quite a few performances, and this is the second time they have been at the Chanhassen.  We even commented that no matter how tired and crabby my son was, that as soon as a musical started he was a perfect child.  They would sit through the entire show without having to talk or go to the bathroom - which is amazing since you can see many adults who can't do that.

I made the card with Mo's image for a friend who asked for a card that she could give to her vet that helped her through her dog's illness and through having to put him down.  So this is the card that I made for her.  The other card that I made was to use "A Day for Daisy" bunny image using Jen's sketch for this week.  And then, I used Ivy, from Krista Smith's Saturated Canary to do her Clean and Simple Challenge.  I love the eyes on her image, but with Ivy having glasses I used Crystal Lacquer to give them a special shine to make them look realistic.
