Jonalea and Betty Bombshell!

I have the best sister in the world! Jonalea is a christian, wife, mother, midwife, nurse, daughter, grandmother, aunt, cousin, friend, confidant, you name it, and if it's positive or of God, it's her. She's my rock and keeps me grounded and upbeat and always loved. Other than my mother, if I had to pick one person on earth that inspires me to be a better person, it's my sister. I'd walk through fire for her without batting an eye, wouldn't even question it. God truly blessed me with the women He's put in my life, starting with her. This Weightwatcherbella from Stamping Bella is a stamp I ordered for me but I worked up with Jonalea in mind. She's been going back to Weight Watchers to get healthy, not too look good, and she's doing it the right way. When I saw this paper, she came to mind. It reminds me of chocolate, strawberry ice cream and just everything delicious! All you have to do to find chocolate around her house is ask her granddaughters, Paige and Madelyn where to find it! And She's also a big Ohio State fan so when these prima flowers came in with my July stmap kit from Loreen at Wish Upon A Scrap I knew I had to use them for her card! I colored her with my copics and Bic markers and added some glitter with my spica clear glitter pen.

Now Betty Bombshell I got for me! She's such a beach babe! Anyone who knows me knows that all you have to do to make me happy is point me towards the water! Betty is such an out there kind of gal and I had to have her when I saw her! I also used the papers from Loreen's kit for the background and the ribbon came from the kit also. I used my crystal stickles on her wings and turquoise sparkles on her sunglasses and in themiddle of her flowers. I colored her with my Bic markers and used my SU chalks for the sky. I adore her!

It's good to be back! Enjoy this bit of summer while it's here. I live in Maine right now and the summers are way too short. Off to the beach with you!

For those that are interested, Emma is doing great and Allie gained 1 pound at her one week checkup! Everyone is happy, healthy and blessed!
