cmc challenge and free digi!

happy saturday!

anyone olymipic-ed out yet?  i only watch the gymnastics so i don't get olympic overload but i sure do wish it was an option to watch sometime other than the middle of the night!  i have a couple nights on the dvr i have yet to watch.  i LOVE it and wanted to be a gymnast so badly when i was young!  how freakin' amazing was gabby?  and so well spoken i thought - it must take alot to be so focused as a teenager.

yesterday hubby was off because he had to work all night last night so we loaded up and headed to the mall for a little school clothes shopping.  i love gymboree but will only shop with a sale and coupon because they are so expensive.  pezza is all set and stylin' now!  on monday i will be at her school meeting with teachers and the principle about her IEP.  she was trying to tell me she is worried about school because she is a bit shy...BAH!  not a day in her life EVER!  i sure hope her teacher is ready for her!

as i mentioned i have joined the Color Me Creative DT for awhile and there is a new challenge up!  the challenge is to create a background for your image...

i am not sure this is what suzanne had in mind but of course my mind went immediately to mixed media!

i drew this little lady myself and colored her with Lyra colored pencils - you can download her and use her yourself if you want to at the end of this post.

the background has layers of lots of different goodies and this project will be included in my mixed media special projects:cards class.  in the meantime you can sign up for the mixed media basics class on cmc!  the orange flower was made with viva decor crystal gel and a silicone mold - both are available at SCACD.

and here she is - let me know if you have trouble downloading her!


  1. Marti this is just awesome! Congrats on joining the DT, you have a lot of offer!

  2. Thank you very much Marti, look forward to using her in the near future, Annette x
