Best Day Ever! Layout using Peachy Keen Stamps and Cricut Cartridges

Hi Everybody!

I hope you are having a fabulous day!  It is Friday, after all!  Yeah!  Although, my husband is going to Vegas for the weekend and my sons have one batting practice, two baseball games and one basketball game tomorrow and Sunday is Opening Day for baseball.  Oh, Joy.  Did I mention that opening day activities go from 10 am till 4pm...?  The good news is that it is going to be sunny and warm!

Today I decided to go with a phrase my sons say when we are doing something unexpected and fun - like we did last summer when, out of the blue, we went to the beach and then to a sushi restaurant.  We went to the beach in Malibu and then when we were going home, PCH was totally blocked.  I mean like 2 miles an hour - tops.  So, being the adventurous type and cheered on by the boys, I turned off the highway and went into the mountains toward the Valley (like, you know, the San Fernando Valley, dude?).  Well, that prompted the three sandy, wet-haired little beasts in the back who had been previously whining to say: Yeah!!, Mom! - This is the Best Day Ever!  (We even have a little tune that goes with it.)  

We ended up in Westlake Village and ate at an upscale little sushi place at 7:30 at night - a Saturday nite.  You can guess how we looked walking in, sandy, wet, 3 boys and their mom.  It was like the parting of the Red Seas, no one wanted to be near us!  I was shocked they let us in and gave us a table.  Well, it was outside on the patio, in the corner, in the dark...The boys did very well, actually.  They love sushi and were hungry enough to behave. 

I also decided to use my favorite stamps, Peachy Keen and sew a little (my two favorite obsessions right now) and enter their:

Challenge Title

Let's Face it Friday - Sew Super Cute {Challenge 11}

Peachy Keen Happy Lashes and a sun from Going Places cart.  The blue & rust colored shaped frames are from the Stamping cartridge as is the wording Best Ever.   I used to search for the words, the banner and the sun - it is a great website!

This used to say "days" from the Just Because Cards cartridge - I just cut off the "s".  I used the Gypsy to weld the words Best Ever with day.
Green velvet bow and a little button tied with twine.

Peachy Keen stamps' Happy Lashes with cheeks by Copic markers and white Gelly Roll pen.

This flag banner is from the Jolly Holidays cart and I used the Gypsy to weld 2 sets together and added some twine to the top and a green velvet bow.

Various ribbons - the lace trim is from Webster's Pages, Designer's trim.

I used zig-zag stitching all around the Baja Breeze paper from Stampin Up!

Prima Flowers
 This layout really brings out memories from our family - I love it!

Have a great weekend!
