Moxie Fab World ~ Stencils Challenge

Clare was home the past few days, I hardly have anytime blogging. This morning, I sent her to Blue Diamond to catch a ride with her school mate back to CA, so I am back here to sort out the projects I created few days ago and yet to post.


The Challenge:

I am using my Prima stencil and glimmer mist for this project

This page is going to my 2013 year book. End of May 2013, the girls are both back home for summer break, so the sisters are spending time together again!

some close ups of the MME embellishments I am using on the page

So..... I just found out last week that Moxie Fab World is back, hop over to check it out!

Last night we met up with Linda and Bruce for dinner, it was great to see them again after a long break.

After dinner, my husband and I went to The Smith Center for Chris Botti's concert, we watched him 3 times, this is by far the best concerts he had.
