Three Zebra Dress Forms!

Happy Saturday!  I am here with a new Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday challenge!  This week our challenge is sponsored by the great stamp company Unity!

Our challenge is Dare To Color!  The challenge is to use NO LESS than 4 colors!!!  SO fun right??  I was still in the mood to play with my Zebra background by Market Street Stamps from my Guest Design this past week.  And I wanted to play with my dress form die by PTI (which I've had for a while but never used, what was I waiting for?)  I already had extra embossed pink zebra so I continued:


Please ignore the shadows, it was very sunny and I had to take the photo quick!  I embosed the zebra background stamp by MSS in different colored powders onto chocolate cardstock. I love how it stands out!  So fun!  Than I die cut the dress form.  Stamped the background in chocolate on white added a doily some ribbon and a resin flower! Such a fun girly card!
 

It's a long weekend here and we've had a great start!  Last night Ariel and I went with friends to Ballet in the Park!  Here in Winnipeg we have a world renown ballet company!  They put on ballet in the park for free and it was sooo good!  We went early and had great seats.  The girls played in the nature playground before.  After the ballet we enjoyed the duck pond and than the flower gardens.  Ariel loves the flower gardens!  And after that we went for gelati (Italian ice cream a bit different) What a fun night!  Today we went with 3 other families to a pool we had never been to before.  We didn't know how great it is!  And we thought that it was so far from our house when it was only 20 minutes.  The pool had the greatest splash pad I've ever seen and the pool had beach entry (gradual) water slides and everything!  I love the beach but I prefer this pool!  All the kids had such a blast!  Ariel wanted to go down the waterslide for the first time but they required kids to swim a double lap prior which she did (I was so proud!)  It was so  nice to go with friends!  So fun but now I am soooo tired.  The kids will go to bed early and I would love to craft but I think I am waayyy to tuckered out!

I have two cute stories to share with you.  Last night at the flower garden we saw a fenced off area and went to see it.  There was a sign and picture sharing about the loss of a small cottage due to a fire.  We read it to the girls and they asked a lot of questions.  Later on the way home my friend and I overheard a sweet conversation.  Ariel said to her friend Celeste "Are you keeping the water in your eyes too?"  HUH?  So I turned around to Ariel and Celeste and asked why were they doing that and they said they were sad, we asked why and they said "Because there was a fire at that cottage!'  So sweet!

Today at the pool when Carter found his friend Bella (who is almost the same age as him) they both started to jump up and down in excitement seeing each other!  It was so cute!  Than they played together non stop all day!   Bella is busy just like Carter so they are such a good match!

I really hope you join us for this challenge,  it runs for two weeks until Friday August 12th 11:59 pst!  I can't wait to see what colors you play with!  Please make sure to check the Wee Memories Blog for more details and to see the always inspiring design team creations!
