Back to Reality...

Whew, what a crazy couple of weeks!  We spent 7 days at my Mum and Dad's, then drove home and spent one night there and then headed out camping for a few nights.  In a massive fluke we ran into some friends who were camping 2 sites up from us, so we had a great time.  However, all good things must come to an end including my vacation!  We have a few days to recover and get ready for back to school and then reality hits...bleh.  I am looking forward to getting crafty again, I have new stamps and papers and I'm ready to play!

This is one of the things I did on my vacation - I stencilled my sister's room for the soon to be niece or nephew.   I used digi images from Meljen's, printed off the size I wanted and then traced onto plastic.  Cut them out and voila - custom stencils.  Obviously I left off some of the details, but I think they turned out very neat.  Next up is shower invites featuring Mama and baby whale - a girl's work is never done!

PS - No, the clown fish is not a Meljen's image, he was a custom request.  I stretched the pink fish, modified the tail and added stripes - cute huh? 

Challenges (I know this isn't a card, but I wanted to show them off!):
Meljen's - Anything Goes
Craft Punked - New baby
Inspire Me Fridays - Linky Party
Simon Says stamp - Anything Goes
