Pixie's Favorite Things Blog Hop!

Good morning, bleeps!  Are you ready to get hopping with Pixie Dust Studio?  It's time for a release day blog hop to celebrate Pixie's Favorite Things!  If you have arrived from Shirl's blog, you're right on track!  Way to go!  If not, please start back at the Pixie Dust Studio blog.  :O)

Being Thursday, today is also new challenge day at PDS Challenge blog...FOOD!  This is an easy one and we want to see YOU play along with the Pixies!  I have a super cute card from my super cute daughter using Pixie Loves Popcorn for the hop and the challenge.  Is this adorbs, or what?  :O)

For my card I used Cherry O' Teacup Pixie with some MME glitter paper.  Love this stuff!  I colored Pixie twice with my Copics, cut out her head and popped it up to add some dimension.  The fabulous sentiment is from an ABS rubber stamp set.  I got that super sparkly charm at Hobby Lobby and it is perfection!  :O)

I hope you liked our projects today!  It's time for you to hop on over and visit Jessica's blog for more Pixie inspiration!  Thank you so much for hopping by!  MWAH!!!

If you should get lost along the way, here is the hop order...

More From the Rio Collection

As I am with some more samples with the Rio Collection images from Simply B Stamps!  Were  you waiting all day?  No?  That's okay...I'll share anyway.  ;O)

Victorian Swimsuit Rio has been taken care of by my daughter, Ariel.  She colored with her Crayola colored pencils and used some water inspired paper.  She gave her blue streaks in her hair as well...apparently she thinks that what she wants her own hair to look like.

Next up we have Thanksgiving Rio.  Ariel colored this image and she had me make the card for it.  I thought I'd make it a non-Thanksgiving card because of the colors.  Oh, by the way, Ariel doesn't like my textured Ninah card stock.  BOO!

Summer Rio make her appearance in this awesome layout featuring photos of the above mentioned child boogie boarding...perfect image!

Ariel colored up Christmas Princess Rio and asked me to make the card again.  It is awesome to have someone coloring the images for sure makes the card making process a lot shorter!

Last, but certainly not least, is Thrillin' Rio.  This little sucker took me a few hours after coloring and fussy cutting!  I sure do love the way it came out!  That poor kitty must have pieced together from 3 different kitties to make the perfect companion for Rio.  The tree is a Glitter Cut from Fancy Pants that I have had in my stash for fact, I found a bunch of different ones just the other day.  I love it when that happens!  I cut the fence with my Silhouette and gave it some distress ink before a thin coat of Distress Crackle.

Be sure to head over to the SBS blog for some coupon codes for the entire Rio Collection.  For a limited time you can get these beauties in rubber AND digital!  Thank you so much for spending a piece of your Saturday visiting!  MWAH!!!

Miss Rio Collection - Released!

Good evening all! Simply B Stamps were planning on releasing the Rio Collection of images next week, but with Betty being out of action, that's left the Simply B Stamp Store in the hands of Miss Rio and our fearless DT Coordinator, Suzi! They thought you might all want to have some new images to play along with over the weekend...they decided to release the Rio Collection today instead of waiting any longer.

I have 2 images to show you tonight and more to come!  First up is Ice Skate Rio.  Yes, another layout.  I know I have pictures for every occasion, don't I?  LOL!  This is my daughter ice skating (and falling) right near the ocean at Hotel del Coronado in CA.  :O)

Next up is Rock n Roll she bad ass, or what?  No, not like the honey badger!  Way cooler than that!  Bwahahaha!  Watch her crack it!  I used the latest and greatest sketch from Mojo Monday as well.

I hope you all get a chance to see my late night post and go over to shop, shop, shop!  Come on back tomorrow for more samples!  MWAH!!!

Good morning, fellow crafters!  Today is the last day of school and I have about a million things to do.  It started off getting my 11 year old, Ariel, up 45 minutes early to get her hair done for the "Moving Up Ceremony" this morning.  She is graduating to Middle School!  Here is a picture of her and her hair...not to mention the flower I made for her hair.  :O)

Anywhoooo!  It's time for another Pixie Dust Studio Challenge!  This time it's all about STEAMPUNK!  Kathy has some adorable steampunk images in the shop if you like.  ;O)

Our fourth image is Lifeguard Christian, and he's ready for any beach emergency...although I'm not sure there is a cure for the pitter-patter of a young girl's heart when she looks upon this cutie pie!  I used some Echo Park and Pink Paislee DP for this one.  I followed the sketch over at Card Patterns this week.

Simply B Stamps Preview - Pool Fun Miller

Welcome to our first day of previews at Simply B Stamps!  Our Teens Scene cuties are ready for Summer!  
Here's the snippit that was posted on Facebook...

Meet Pool Fun Miller!  He's ready to brave the plastic pool!  Of course safety first, so his arm floaties were a must!  I had the perfect pictures for this image.  My son was having a blast in the pool at my BFF's town home pool.  He was cannon balling his heart out and I thought it might be cool if I could catch him at each stage.  After many tries, we finally did it!  Click on the layout to see the photos closer.  I opted to remove the plastic kiddie pool from the image for my layout.  FUN!

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my project!  Happy iNSD tomorrow!  MWAH!!!
