It has been a crazy week since the weekend and it isn't over yet until Sunday. I haven't had time to do much since I had a class to prepare for Tuesday and my club this coming between I had a volleyball tournament for Jordan yesterday, a basketball tournament for him this coming weekend, A business function to go to with hubby tonight, Jessie's bday tomorrow and of course her swim meet this past weekend in London...could I be any busier??

Time for some bragging!!

As I mentioned in a previous post, Jessie qualified to swim in the Western Ontario Regional Championships this past weekend...she had a phenomenal weekend taking the bronze medal in her 200m backstroke and the GOLD in her 100m backstroke. The 100m back almost put me into heart failure it was sooooo Olympic finishes close (okay, olympics). Seriously though...she was seeded second and the entire race she was right beside the girl seeded came down to the finish where she out-touched the girl by 3/10ths of a second!!! It was amazing and of course she is on cloud nine and wearing her medals proudly wherever she goes. She also placed 5th in both of her freestyle events but she is a backstroker and loves those events best.

In between all the chaos I received my shipment of new Stamping Bella stamps....all uptown girls!! I took a quick break (really quick) to make this could be for Jessie as long as those drinks are Shirley Temples...LOL...but it is really for my cousin in Germany!

The DP is all Kaiser Craft layered on SU's Early espresso. I coloured in the image with copics and paper pieced the dress using the same DP. I used my black glaze pen on the shoes to make them shiny and added some gemstones at the top and on the sentiment. The Birthday Girl sentiment comes from the "a la modes" set Birthday Girl from MFT.

I have more Uptown girls that I can't wait to use but it will have to be next week.

Thanks for stopping by :o)
