It’s the Playtime Release Day!

Hello Bloggy friends! It’s release day for the Simply B Stamps new Jude and the Rockers Collection: Playtime. I love this collection, as I’ve said all week. Today we are featuring Beep Beep Jude. And he is for sure, one of my faves of the set. You should have started this hop at the SBS Blog, so if you haven’t, please go back there to start at the beginning.  Before I share my project with you, I wanted to share Phoenix’s. when he saw this image, e just had to color it in for himself! And, he wanted to make me a card with him. Why? Because this image reminded him so much of himself!

He is stoked to be on my blog again! He’s so proud of himself, and so am I. Usually you see these cars in red and yellow, right? well, at Phoenix’s school, they have those, but they also have a yellow and teal one, which Phoenix prefers.

I love how he colored Jude! Now, here’s my project.

There’s Phoenix in the car at school! If he’s outside, then he is often seen driving this car. None of the others, just this one. Why? Because he loves teal. What other 5 year old knows what teal is? That’s my boy!!!

I used watercolor markers and Copics for the image of Jude.Isn’t he a cutie?

It may be hard to see if the pic is small (by clicking on any of them, you can see it bigger), but I added some glossy accents and clear microbeads in assorted places from some added points of interest and texture. I also embossed my title. This was a ful page to make (but…aren’t they all?)! Now it’s almost time for you to keep hopping!  First, here's the full hop list:
You start at the SBS blog
 Alison (me!)
and end back at SBS again!

Before you get to hopping along and seeing all the fun the DT has created for you let me share some deals and two new surprise Bettys with you!

Awww...Alison, does Nix love teal because you dye part of your hair that color? Or do you dye your hair that color because he loves it so? Either way, it is an awesome thing!

Nix, your coloring is fabulous! I think you color way better than i did when I was your age. You definitely have your mother's talent. Keep up the awesome work!

Alison, i love how you always color your SBS images to look like members of your family. This current line is perfect for your kiddos' layouts! Great work, as always, my dear friend!
