1. Is there something you've always wanted to try but just can't muster up the courage to actually do yet?
Yes I want to try hang gliding. They have an area near Albuquerque but I have not looked into it yet. Of course I am so accident prone when I do stuff like that, I would probably break something.

DUH! You have to ask? SCRAPBOOK stuff!!

3. What was your favorite piece of playground equipment as a child?
At Mt. Taylor Elementary there was this big wooden playground with a bridge that swung back and forth and tire swings. I loved it!!

4. Do you prefer a sweet or hearty breakfast?
I would rather have eggs, bacon, tortillas, potatoes, yummy. Ok I am hungry now...

5. Are you a Neat Freak or a Messy Bessy?
At work I am a neat freak. At home not so much as long as it's clean. I would rather relax when I get home not make sure everything is perfect!

Spring into Summer Blog Hop

If you came here from Lisa, Welcome!! Isn't her gift card holder card amazing? I will definitely be scraplifting that one for all my graduation cards I will be making this week! If you found me on your own why don't you hop on over to the Paper...Talk...Scissors when you are done here?

I decided to show you all a really easy water color technique.

You will need Staz on, colored pencils, blending stumps, a dry body oil (do NOT use baby oil), and of course some really cute stamps that you would like to color in.

1. Stamp your image using the Staz On.
2. Take your colored pencil and color a dark line around the edge of the image.
3. Dip your blending stump in the oil and scrap the excess off on the top of the oil bottle. You don't want a lot of oil on your blending stump. Trace the colored pencil line that you made, and then start blending the color into the middle. Repeat until you get desired color. You can always use different colors. I do this a lot in my flowers.

That is it! Easy right?

Please leave a comment, and I would love to see what you create with this technique! There will be an RAK for one lucky commenter!!

Now go visit the Paper...Talk...Scissors Forum!

5 Question Friday!!

Here is your 5 Question Friday from Momma M.
1. What is your worst memory of your siblings?
My brother was supposed to "watch" me when my parents went out. (My brothers are a lot older than me) He kept teasing me that he was going to leave me there by myself. He decided to take a shower but told me he was going to crawl out the window. So I sat in front of the bathroom door screaming and crying the whole time he was in the shower. BTW the window in the bathroom was about 4 inches by 12 inches. 

2. What was YOUR naughtiest childhood memory? (Must be something YOU did, no pawning it off on someone else!)
I'm sure if you ask my parents they could come up with a whole list of things I did, but nothing is really coming to me.

3. Where do you like to go to relax?
Camping, fishing anywhere. Fun Valley in Colorado is the best because Colin is entertained and we can really relax!

4. What was the last thing you won?
Some stickers at the Inspired Retreat. 

5. If you could be on a game show, which would you choose?
I am so liking that Minute to Win It. Looks like fun!

Jess's Jewels

I have some VERY creative friends!
I met Jessie in college and she is one amazing woman! She is now making Jewelry and it is spectacular! I keep hinting that I want one for mother's day. If I don't get one, I will buy one for myself. They are very inexpensive and one of a kind. That means that no one else will ever have the same piece as you!

If you are on Facebook visit her page.

She has some ready made pieces available on there, but she will also make custom pieces!
