I was wanting to do something soft with a little shabby chic. The Medallion Stamp is one of my favorites. It is so versitle. The SU colors I have used on the top card is Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink. The second card I used the wonderful Decor Stencil: Kind Thoughts Brocade (small). I used SU colors Close to Cocoa and Pretty in Pink. When I used the stencil I sponged with Close to Cocoa and then with a little SU Frost White (all purpose ink) Thank You for stopping by and have a wonderful day. Smiles Monica :)

The picture right above are my two daughters. They both do Comptitive Cheer. We were at Nationals last weekend and had a wonderful time. I am so proud of you girls. Cheer has been such a postive life experience for them. Life benefits: Leadership and Teamwork, Confidence, Goal setting. Physical benefits: Fitness, Spatial awareness, Dynamic and Static balance. I am proud to say; All Star Ellite Cheer Gym (my girls cheer gym) is the First in the country to be USASF certified, which means a Non-profit governing body with a commitment to standardize safety and training guidelines for all star gyms and events. In 2005 all star cheerleading became a prevelant activity across the globe. So the IASF (International All Star Federation) was formed to aid in communication and consistant standards of safety and training through out the World. Way to go!!!
A proud Momma, :)
