Zentangle and Disney

Today I am adding a couple of pages from my Zentangle calendar that I have been working on. I really need to spend some time stamping, but Zentangle is so portable. I did the page with the tree one day while I was watching Kyli play on her swing set. The second one (still  needs shading) I did while sitting and chatting with a friend. She was doing the same thing, so she wasn't even thinking that I wasn't paying attention to her. It's good to have friends with common interests!
On a personal note, my son and daughter-in-law took Kyli to Disney for her fourth birthday. It was her first visit and she went non-stop for 14 hours without a stroller! Of course, she then slept for about 14 hours straight! Just she collected autographs from so many of the characters. She even got to dance with Goofy at one of the shows. Check out my son's wizard hat! I am sooooo going to snag it for the next hat day at school!!!

Next Month's Class

I got a sample done for my class next month at Priceless Scrapbooks. It is a coffee gift set and gift card holder. In this class, we will learn how to duplicate both of these pieces, which I made using my very own brain! I didn't have access to any files or templates to make these, so I did the best I could from what I know about how to make a box and a card to come up with my own versions. The coffee bean tag on the cup set is scratch and sniff made with instant coffee and clear embossing powder. The gift card holder works by pulling on the lid of the coffee cup to get to the insert holding the gift card. The paper is Bo Bunny and the stamps are by Just Rite.
On a personal note, today is my sweet granddaughter's fourth birthday! We will be taking her to her party later today. Here she is last Sunday holding her Valentine's Day card from me and her Bobo.
Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful long weekend!!
