Daddies Day, Bam-Pa and...

oh yeah...some Label Tulip?

First of all, I want to wish a happy Father's Day to all the dads in my life! We had a fabulous dinner at Sullivan's Steak House. My salmon way okay. But, Bryan thoroughly enjoyed his prime rib with super-hot horseradish, and that's all that matters. Besides, Sullivan's DOES make a mean martini! And, now that we're back at home, my creme brulee is sitting warmly in my tummy. So, I suppose it's time for a quick little blog.

Father's Day...the perfect day for Luka to say "Grandpa"! Actually, it comes out a little more like "Bam-pa," but Grandpa was thrilled to hear it. And, it was adorable to hear.

So are you ready for a little Label Tulip goodness?

Our challenge this month was to use a photo that we would otherwise consider "unworthy" of scrapbooking. These photos of me from around 7th grade definitely fit the bill. Not only was I caught totally off-guard by the photographer, but I'm sportin' the requisite big bangs of the 90's. SO embarrassing. So, there's a little peek of me that one wouldn't normally have access to.
Some cards...

I haven't had the desire to make too many cards since my days on the A Muse DT. But, I've been feeling the urge a little more lately. I think I'm going to make a little box to stash all of my cards in. That way, I can just grab one when some card-worthy event pops up. I'm tired of blowin' $$$ on Hallmark cards.
A couple of goodies for Hazel this month...

Her addition to the family canvas project.

And, a fun little shadowbox that I made to hang in her room. I adore it but, more importantly, so does she. So fun to make too!

A random little LO of the first good picture I have of the kids TOGETHER where one isn't trying to kill the other one.

And, my favorite LO in a looooong time...

Our Guest Designer this month was Amy Tangerine, and this was my version of the LO of hers that we lifted. I had these pictures from when my grandfather was stationed in Japan during the days surrounding WWII, and had been dying to scrap them. I knew when I received this month's kit, that I finally had the product to do them justice.

And, last but not least...

A fun little door hanger using the age-old shaker box technique. Although, I might save it for a card.

All of the Tulip Girls totally rocked this month's kit, and you can check out the rest of the gallery here.

As for me, I'm off to turn in some submissions for a couple of DT calls. Then, it's time to pop some popcorn, and settle in for this week's episode of Army Wives. Anyone who knows me, knows that there aren't too many shows that I am a die-hard fan for. But, this is one of them. I can't miss it. And, the season premiere was such a tear-jerker! I bawled my eyes out last week. It looks like it is going to be a great season!

Happy Sunday, and I hope everyone's week is off to a great start tomorrow!
