Happy Saturday everyone!

Good morning, so nice of you to stop by as I know the weather outside is calling you. :D Just a quick post today with a couple of fun stuff going on.

First off, today is our Super Challenge Saturday and Melissa's hosting it today along with an added surprise! :D Visit her blog HERE to read the little extra for today.

For our challenge this week, Candie from Modern Sugar Blvd. graciously let Mel use her Shop Girl image for this week's challenge. She is a digi image, and is yours free. Click HERE to get her. (This will take you to an older post on the Modern Sugar Blvd. blog. This was the image originally offered for their Design Team call. I didn't want to have her on my blog because I know I would mess up the pixellation somehow!)

Your job is to create anything with her, just go have fun!

I decided to do something utilitarian, and since I have a handful of clear tags from All That Scraps, I created a luggage tag.
Here is the front side of the tag:
And here is the back:

It's pretty self explanatory. :D The tag is only 40 cents each HERE on and are really fun to use! I colored in Shop Girl with prismacolor pencils, drew in the sidewalk with copics, cut her down to size, then printed out the info on my computer. Easy Smeasy. I think it would be quite sassy on a suitcase, much better than those boring ones that come with the luggage! ;) Now go and visit Gabby's blog and Mel's blog to see what awesome design they came up with!
Tomorrow, MSB will be releasing another girl in their store! You can see all the newest releases HERE, including the Twinkle Toes and Around Town line, as well as those domestic divas we've been showing you. Stop by today and tomorrow to these Sugars' blogs to see more sneak peeks and the newest image in her entirety:

And finally, we are headed out to 2 soccer games, then to eat out and celebrate this little guy's 1st birthday:

Haha! Isn't he so funny? Now I have to say, he has a ton of clothes, but I always seem to take the sweetest pictures of him in this particular onesie. I think because it's in all shades of blues, and after having 3 girls in a row, it's nice to do boy colors again! He's laughing because I dove on the ottoman to photograph him holding his sister's toy which is partly in his mouth. I love how they think everything is entertainment at this age. ;) Thanks for celebrating this week with us! Izzy will pull a number out of his Elmo party hat after dinner. Happy weekend everyone!
*Love and Aloha*

Joni ~ I love that tag and thanks for sharing where you got it (lucky for me it's a place I already shop at). Each year I make tags for the kids backpacks, and have a hard time finding the plastic cover ~ next time I order, I think I'll just add some of these in so I have them on hand.

What a perfect image for a luggage tag! This would make such a perfect (and useful) 'just because' gift for a friend!

Happy Birthday to your littlest guy -- he looks like he really knows how to enjoy life!
