LSC169 Birthdays and Bubbles!!


Here is my card for the Limited Supplies Challenge {LSC196} Pinky Animal.  I used Lil' P-Nut from Our Craft Lounge to wish a Happy Birthday with just her party hat & sentiment.  The dp & brad are by Basic Grey, Eva.  She was colored with prismacolor pencils blended with baby oil & stumps then highlighted with my Copic Atyou Spica pens.  
And now one of the main reasons I was drawn to Our Craft Lounge stamps - because in the setLola Love she is blowing bubbles!  These pictures were taken of my niece Gabby during our trip in May when her baby brother was born.  Gabby LOVES to blow bubbles - she has a special drawer in the kitchen full of them, extras left over from her 2nd birthday party favor buckets. The journaling talks about how cute it was that my sister (her Nini) taught her how to put the wand straight in, then out, then 'tap, tap, tap' on the side to get the extra bubbles off - we managed to get still photos & video of these precious few minutes! A funny moment was when she said, "Auntie Donna's making a mess" and we said what? and she pointed to my arm and said "all over your arm" - I was holding the bottle of bubbles and when she was tap tap tapping, it was getting all over my arm but it was o.k.!  
The funniest moment was at the very end when we were telling her to put the wand closer to her mouth and she accidentally put it in her mouth!  We all gasped and laughed at the surprised look on her face when she got a taste of the bubbles - it was hilarious!  Unfortunately the camera was off at that point but one we will never forget!  There is one point in the video she stops and sees that her Tio Frankie has the camera and stopped to smile.  This photo is priceless; it captures her sheer innocense & beauty.

Here is a picture of Gabby and her Nini - my middle sister Deana who is 4 years older than me and watches her & Joseph our nephew.  I'm really proud of the sacrifice she makes to watch them, since she never wanted to have kids of her own and she is doing a great job caring for them!  Isn't she pretty??  They were playing dress up before we started blowing bubbles.   Pin It

Love what you've done with sets...I got a couple and yet have to ink them up. As soon as I saw Lola I thought of you and the amazing things you could do with her for Gabby.

Thanks for my Gabby fix...she's just too cute!
