Technique Time and Spring Break fun

It's that time--I'll be teaching my monthly technique class this week. We're focusing on re-inker techniques this time around. Here are three of the four cards we'll be making. The fourth will use flowers dyed with re-inkers.

Baby Wipe Technique


Painted chipboard ribbon buckle with Black Re-Inker

Background painted with Buttercup and Cranberry Re-Inkers (both the second and third section were combos of the two)


Here's a few pics from our whirlwind week:
San Diego Zoo

I love watching the boys' reactions to the animals--so fun!


The pandas--our favorite :)




Gotta love the back rolls--LOL!

Polar bear fun

The Skyfari ride--the kids were scared before we got on, but we ended up riding it 3 times :)


Brendan's new habit is to cover his ears whenever he's scared or nervous.



The only picture I got the day of the Kidspace Museum. I took it before we left. The rest I took on a throw away camera and they didn't turn out :( I did get a cute one on my phone, but I have no idea how to transfer it.


Easter Eggs



And finally,

ONE


TWO


THREE Easter egg hunts--what fun!


And today, we were tired!

Love the floral card!

I had to laugh about the zoo's skyride thing...THAT was MY boy's FAVORITE thing at the zoo! We rode it back and forth and back and forth! LOL. Looks like you had a great time.
