SSW 160 Bugaboo Stamps

Well, I officially have a 4 year old in the house and boy is she excited to be a big girl! We had a little water party with a few friends and then surprised her with a trip to Disneyland! She sure was excited and had not a clue that that was where we were taking her. It was definitely a memorable trip. She has been there before, but she was only 1 year old. This was also our son's first trip. Pictures to come!

Our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday is Bugaboo Stamps and I just love their images.

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!

If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 157

Phew! I made it! Summer is here. This week was bitter sweet. Sweet in that I am now officially on vacation until mid August, but bitter in that a dear family friend has suffered a loss. After many years of battling cancer, her husband passed on Wednesday. I made this for her and her two young sons. Many thoughts and prayers are being sent their way!

I am submitting this to Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I used Bugaboo Stamps' image. I LOVE their images!
