Giggles and Bubbles

Best time ever. Not only am I spending time in the Bubble for the first time in days and days...but I am listening to my daughter Amy and her best friend giggle hysterically while they are watching (and mostly poking fun at) a 1987 movie "A Hazard of Hearts.

I thought I would try out a technique I've seen in several versions on Pinterest...FINALLY all that Pinning 'pays' off. A "Pin" moves from the 'inspiration' column to the 'been there - done that' column! Whooooooot! I call it Productive Pinning!

I combined the Lucite stamp block technique (putting ink directly on the block and smearing it around...) with the color inspiration over at Play Date Cafe.

Thankful for Giggles
