Well, ladies and gents.... WHAT A RIDE.... Here is my Final Hanna Stamps Guest DT Application. I have already uploaded in the 2 previous weeks my cards. NOW is the Grand Finale.... the ABAC/3D item. Once again using the ADORABLE Riley/Sophie in a tub stamp available at www.hannastamps.com This stamp was sent to us for FREE from Kristi of Hanna stamps to use in this challenge... there have been 15 of us trying out for 6, count them S-I-X spots for a month long Guest DT Spot with Hanna....
I can't tell you how much fun this has been, I get to pretend to "Be Somebody" for THREE WHOLE WEEKS!!!! AMD. get this - AND MY CARD WAS FEATURED ON KRISTI'S BLOG!!! I tell ya I RAN to the front office to get my stampin buddies and show them the blog...AFTER gettin Hi-Five's from my fellow CO's in the Jail... THEY ARE AWESOME TO ME!!!!! WAHOOOO!!!!!! But the BEST PART..... I have met some SUPER nice fellow SCS'ers on this thread, and let me tell ya, there is some SERIOUS Talent in this group...It has been SO much fun!!!! The friendships from this "competition" are WOW... it's hard to call it a competition as it has been SO exciting to see what each person comes up with next, the different looks to the SAME STAMP is TOTALLY COOL!!!!
OK, I've gushed enough I guess... Here are the deets about my ABAC... You see Miss Sophie (I vote it's Sophie, Riley is a shower kinda dude) is sittin all perty in her lil bubbly tub...well, I have a perty Miss Sophie of my own who was a SERIOUS FISH in the tub.... SO I thought I'll make a lil book. I didn't want to do a scrapbook page as I am NOT a scrapper...SO I grabbed the front page and one more page of my Maya Road Chipboard book that I have had in my stash for quite awhile now. I made sure Sophie was framed from the front in the cut out heart. Of course my warped sense of humor kicked in and grabbed my Cricut and some matching DP and cut out "X rated" for the cover... I KNOW that got your attention **wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more, say no more!** :) Open it up and there is Kristi's Sophie and of course MY Sophie, Lil Miss Hailey Brooke! Do you see that lil nekkie bum??? HAHAHAH She was SO darn cute in her tow head curls...
I hope you enjoyed my projects I had a blast doing them.
Thank you Kristi and Vicki for the time and energy that you have spent on this challenge.
Best of Luck to the Final 15 sistah's of Hanna!!!!!!
Hugs from the PP HO!!!!! KelliJo

Well, here is my second card that I made for the Hanna Guest DR Challenge. I have a link at the top so that you can go and look at ALLof the other cards as there are some fabulous ones in there from week 1 and I am SURE from this week too... I just have to load and then go ooo and awww!!!!
OK, now for the card I created a scene with the card that appears that you are going to walk through the bathroom door to see Miss Sophie relaxing in her tub with double bubbles...in the tub AND her glass! LOL
I had drew the floor, Kristi has since come out with a stamp for this and it is SO mine, LOL! I added some DP for the wallpaper and I stamped and cut out Sophie to put her on dimensionals. The tub is resting on the fluffy rug from Hanna Computer set. I hope you enjoy the card, I absolutely LOVE it and am very proud of it! :)
Now leave me some love and go check out the others cards and do the same! They are all awesome! AFTER leaving love (LOL) head on over to www.hannastamps.com and do a lil shopping! ;)

WELL, the day came and here are the pictures to prove it. The day all parents teasingly "dream about"! The kids leave the nest. I gotta tell ya, it aint no picnic! It was 0600 when Bub pulled out of the drive way but before he did Hailey told him to wake her up so she could say goodbye. I tell ya those 2 are closer than they act, lil Hailey who was excited to be "the only child" was in TEARS...her Brother was leaving and she was lost...
Bubba is headed to Eastern Oregon University to become a Personal Trainer. He is studying Physical Education with a Minor in Business. He is going to be a Mountaineer. He was okayed for the Football team and scheduled to leave September 24 to report for the team, THEN THE CALL CAME IN.... Coach Camp wanted him to report for Team Camp which moved his departure date up SIX WEEKS!!! TODAY!!!! It's not known if he will Red Shirt this year or if he will make the team but he has an extra 6 weeks of showing what he's got on the other kids! :)
I believe that he has enough underwear, socks and clothes to last him till Christmas when he can come home. *grin* SO... I guess all parents go through this sadness of will they remember what they were taught about how to behave, how to make wise choices, being careful, managing money, GIRLS???? UGH!!!!! Bub is SUCH a good kid and didn't get in to trouble, did some DUMB stuff, but chalk that up to being a kid, nothing to get him thrown where I can see him everyday! LOL
Thanks to all my friends who have been here for me during the countdown to D Day... I cried myself to sleep last night, Dave lost some sleep but held it together pretty well this AM as I had to be able to comfort Hailey as she is pretty torn up! SO... in 4 years you will be seeing another post just like this one when my Baby leaves...
Take care my friends....
PS A Happy post will be here on Saturday when I load my 2nd Guest DT Tryout pic for Hanna Stamps! ;)

Here are some pic's from this weekend. I was a LUCKY DUCKY and got picked to work with Rubbernecker up at the Puyallup Craft Fair. His red hot momma's were partying in Florida for CHA so he hooked THREE of us up with some FUN TIMES... I tell ya, I have been amused by Dave just through ordering at Rubbernecker but this man IN REAL LIFE has to be one of the NICEST men I have met... he is FULL of fun, knowledge and a TRUE CARING about our little habit we all seem to have... Top Photo is Dave teaching us the Batik process using Tim Holtz alcohol inks, then there are the two other FUN FUN Gals that were working with me and then of course my work station... SO looks like my craft desk at home COVERED AND MESSY!!!!!
Those that dont know Dave or Rubbernecker REALLY need to check them out... www.rubberneckerstamps.com and have some FUN... he has DEEPLY etched stamps that ALWAYS give a good stamp and then there are the prismatic papers... May Arts ribbon by the yard *cheaply priced too*!!! There are ways to get FREE stamps and shipping and it is SO easy to get there... *wink wink*

Here is my first round Hanna Guest DT Card...Sophie is relaxin in the tub takin a little break! :)
I used the Sophie Tub stamp, SU Scalloped and Oval punches. SU CS in Certainly Celery, Pixie Pink, and Apricot Appeal (SCS Color challenge) the layout for the card was this weeks Sketch Challenge also. I realised I had NO black brads so I used my Copic Markers and made some brass brads black. I also Paper Pierced (first time) around the certainly celery layer. I used some of the circles from Circle Circus to mimic bubbles on the pixie pink layer, they were inked up using pixie pink, stamped off first and then onto the card stock to keep it light. I highlighted different areas of the card with my white gel pen to give it pop. I hand drew the floor and walls.
I hope you enjoy the card and have your fingers crossed WITH ME.... OH MAN!!! I am SO stoked over this!!!! WHAT FUN THIS HAS BEEN!!!!
Stay tuned.... the next load coming up in a few days as there is a schedule to follow...mine are all ready to go..... WAHOOOO!!!!!!!
Come on over and view the other contestants entries too, there are 14 SUPER Talented ladies in this barrell of fun!!!! http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=451126
