Every Day a Picnic

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Hello there! We just got in from an Orlando vacation, late, late last night, after driving 9 hours with no air conditioner! OMGosh, how in the world we did that when I was a kid, I'll never know! It was miserable! But, the rest of the vacation was great! I was able to meet up with friends and go to StampFest in Orlando while we were there, and, my DH, DD, and I spent four days in the parks. My DD, who turns 10 this week, rode her first "big kid" roller coaster, the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, in Universal Studios, and now she is a roller coaster fanatic! If you haven't seen that coaster, you MUST check it out! It starts out climbing 17 stories straight up...YES, straight up! Then the big drop, followed by a loop that you actually spiral around! I was scared to death that my DD was going to go flying out, but she not only stayed in, she was grinning ear to ear at the end of the ride. Here's a good video of the ride, if you're interested in seeing what crazy people do on vacation! ;D
While we were gone, I was able to do quite a bit of coloring. This is a MFT stamp, colored with Copics. I airbrushed the sky with a Copic marker.
The inside is simple. I just love this sentiment. I have so many people I'd like to send this to. 

Hope you are having a wonderful summer!

So glad you had a wonderful vaction, I can't do any rides I get car sick even, so my daughter always had to go with my husband when we went to those kind of parks.
Your girl is just the sweetest, your paper is just perfect with the coloring!

Adorable card, and your coloring rocks! Love how you did the pattern on the hat. Your vacation sounds thrilling (all but the no air conditioning part). We drove across the Nevada desert with no air conditioning and a dog in the car with us. Miserable. So glad it comes standard in cars these days!
