Firsthand DP, Rock and Roll

I have only recently bought firsthand DP.  Up until now, I had mostly secondhand paper (pretty and new to me).  However, on my anniversary (I know, not very romantic ;) ) husband and kids sat in the car while I browsed around a craft store.  Aren't they sweet? ;) 

BTW, we DID go out to eat and he got himself something nice at the sports store-everyone got something!    ;)

 I'm glad I got some brights, because The Play Date Cafe #86

has some FUN, FRESH, FABULOUS colors. ;)

I love these brights!!!  I have three girls...all between 10 and 15.  Fun and fresh is always going on in our house...and they have FABULOUS taste.  If they say my card is "COOL"  or "WOW"...I believe them!  They are in that "cool" age. :)

I purchased some fun paper and added a little surprise ...a pink and orange wood background inked up with the Rock and roll technique from MIM #19.


They seemed to like how I used it .....

     They gave me a "Cool!" and "Neat!"

 I passed the test! ;)

Thanks for peeking in! ;)
