This Is An All Skate, Everyone Please All Skate!

Holy smokes, I actually finished a layout! *pause for much needed patting on back*

I made this using some of Toot's six month portraits and the June kit from Life Preservers. Everything was from the LPS kit except for the too sweet gingham ribbon (which I got in a thrift store grab bag), some fabulous crocheted flowers from Paper Blooms, the brad in the middle of the other flowers is one I got from a Target $1 pack and the butterfly trails which I made with Stickles. And speaking of the butterflies:

Aren't they adorable?!?! I got these from Paper Blooms with the flowers and am so in love! They are so teeny weeny and cute!

Oh right, I almost forgot! Remember last week when I mentioned the 1940's movie "The Fleet's In"? Well looky what I found on Etsy:

This is some sheet music and the bottom one called, "I Remember You" is a song from "The Fleet's In"...I found sheet music from the movie! Woo hoo! I promptly bought them (there were 3 different sheets all together) on sale for $3.00...mine now!

I also discovered a couple more things at a local thrift store. Sidney Poitier's book (for $1.00, hello! And isn't he so dreamy? I love "To Sir, With Love" *sigh*), an Algebra textbook from the 40's and an old copy of Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm and another 10 cent pattern, this one is a 50's apron pattern:

I also got a sweet little polka dot scarf and thought about posting a picture of me wearing it but let's be honest here...Toot is ten times cuter than me and she agreed to model it for me so...

I'm working on a couple of other projects, including altering a wood mirror frame I got from Michael's and I'm attempting to work on canvas again after staying away from it for a few years. (I should try and find some pictures of my "paintings" to show you. I have quotes around "paintings" because I stink at it but somehow kept a few of them. lol We'll see how brave I get this week...)

And now for the "shout out" portion of the blog:

1. Don't forget that Melissa is giving away some fun Disney blog candy! Check it out here!

2. Chris wanted me to thank you all for your nice comments on his first Father's Day. He also wanted me to apologize for posting a picture of him with no shirt on, but I refuse to apologize for it. I like the picture...*rowr* :P

3. Look what Mo gave me!

Thank you so much Mo!!!

4. Through her generosity project, I received one of Frieda's fabulous ATCs for my very own! I almost fell out when I saw the envelope! Frieda is so talented and so inspiring! I'll be sure to post a picture of it next go round, the light is terrible at the moment and I want to make sure I take a good picture of it for you to see...

So with that, have a great day everyone!
