Just hangin' with my baby, tonight!

My hubby and I have been painting our 16yo daughter's room for the past few days. Last night, as it got late, she decided to come into my stamp room and color with me. She was a fish out of water, since her room was still torn apart. I was so excited, because normally, she stays in her room on the computer or phone or sleeping. Oh, to be 16 again! But for a few precious hours, she was mine! Kinda makes me want to sing the Harry Chapin song "Tangled up Puppet". That song always makes me cry. Sniff, sniff.
Anyway, she does a good job with the Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol so, I handed her a stack of stamped images and she got busy coloring. These are the images she chose to color, along with some others, that I will post later.

She colored them and handed to me and I got busy trying to match papers and accessories. I think we make a great team!

The first one is a Whipper Snapper image and is my most favorite. I matched Katie's coloring with some American Crafts and Bazzill paper and some ribbon. Of course, I had to add a little bling and the sentiment is from Papertrey.

The mouse is also a Whipper Snapper image. Katie's coloring matched with some Basic Grey Gypsy paper and some cute little flower brads. Again, the sentiment is from Papertrey.

The last card is an Inky Antics image. I love those sweet turtles. I did a little doodling around the edge. The paper is bazzill and the patterned paper I do not know the maker. I also added a big green ribbon to finish it off. I couldn't decide on a sentiment so that will have to come later.

Thanks so much for stopping by to look and read my ramblings. Have a great day!
