Catching up and PaperTrey Blog Hop

Howdy friends!!  Wow - its been w.a.y too long since I posted here on the blog-o.  Kids are out of school and I've tried to spend more time with them instead of crafting - but sweet, sweet hubby made it possible for me to have some time to create and not feel guilty!  He took the youngest for the morning and the oldest was already gone - so I got busy!!  Oh yeah - and my newest little niece was born a week ago - so I've gotten to spend time hanging out with "E" , my brother, and his wife, so that's been pretty special too.

Anywho - enough rambling, on to the Blog Hop!  Nichole of PaperTrey Ink is hosting the monthly blog hop, now I've hopped around looking in the past but have not participated - so here's to my first PTI Blog Hop :)   Here is the inspiration picture:

And here is my interpretation:

Pretty easy card,  it didn't quite come out the way I planned, but I'm happy with the results - oh, and I pulled out the Copics!  

So hopefully I'll be creating more and sharing the projects, but this summer I'm focusing on my family.  We are in the middle of sewing "K" a dress (she's been helping and learning, and she's hooked!), and "C" is pretty busy this summer, so when he is home I hang out with him.  Oh yeah, and there's my new niece, and my other 2 nieces are coming for a visit next week - and vacation, and canning veggies - whew!  Summer will be over before I know it!!
