COLORING INSIDE THE LINES...

The SUO challenge this week is "New Year, new stuff!" - so using something new!  This paper is awesome and brand new from SU!!  Also those sequins are brand new - lots of brand new stuff for Saleabration AND in the new Occasions Mini catalog...and I have barely had time to use any of it yet as I was traveling over Christmas to visit our twin grand children in Minneapolis.  It amazes me that no matter how many grand children you have they are each so unique and so special and so loved.  I cried all the way home....Eva and Luca are FOUR years old....such a fun age.  Of all of our grand children I feel like we haven't had as much time with them.  All of the others have lived with us at one time or another, except for brand new baby Tate that is.  It was fun to have almost a week to wake up in the same house as Eva and Luca. Every time I see any of my grand children I have to use my adage from Mary Engelbreit to stop feeling so blue when it's over -and that is, "Don't cry cuz it's over, Smile cuz it happened".  That's kind of my life motto with kids and grand kids all over the globe.  So many blessings.  Happy New Year everyone!  Until next time......Karen

I have used SU markers, but they leave lines. Yours is brilliant!!
