I'm back with Popcorn the Bear!

Hello! I'm BACK!!!!!!!!!  In my last post I mentioned that I had some things going on, well the family went away for a nice long vacation. We traveled to Las Vegas and then drove 3 hours to Utah for some Skiing, then went back to Vegas and spent a couple of days bumming around. We had a wonderful time and the weather was fabulous!!!!!  My kids got to see snow, this was their 2nd time. Only the 1st time there wasn't much and then it melted so they don't include that!! lol  We hadn't expected it to actually snow , the weather forecast when we left called for a warmer days and even some RAIN! Which isn't great conditions for skiing. Luckily we were at really high elevations and they had a nice base!! Well it turned out it was colder than expected and instead of rain we got a full day of snow. It was great!  We took one day to travel to Zion National Park and another to travel to Bryce Canyon. I LOVE these parks. Hard to pick a favorite but Iwould have to go with Zion. I love driving in the canyon and walking around. Those red rocks are stunning! Although, the Hoodoos at Bryce Canyon are pretty spectacular to see too. Nothing like I have ever seen before!  Anyways, we are back now and trying to adjust to the time change and time zone changes!  It hasn't been easy. 

Now I just need to get my butt in gear and start creating!!I thought I was going to get some things done this weekend. My LSS had a "Luck of the Irish Crop" and I spent Friday and all day Saturday there. However, I got nothing done. Seriously. I was too busy running my mouth and making Margaritas for everybody. I had a blast...but I got nothing accomplished!!!lol The margaritas were delish though!!!! Here's a funny, the night before I was "warned" to be nice to the ladies that would be sitting next to me the next day. You see, I can be loud sometimes...very loud. lol  So that morning I walked in with a brown bag of Tequila and some margarita mix. It was 10 am. I said, loudly, do I look like a lush walking into a liqour store at 10 a.m. getting tequila????? Well the girls laughed and said...ok we're sitting at the right table!! Now, as the day went on I am not quite sure if they still felt that way...but I don't think I scared them too badly!! I had them laughing a few times....sooooooo we'll see next crop!! haha!  Next crop I am just going to set up a bar and be the bartender....lol

On to m project!!!

I am today's Monday Inspiration hostess on the Crafter's Companion Challenge blog!! I do hope that you come by and check it out, I have some pointers and suggestions for using the new Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers from Crafter's Companion.

I used Party Time from the Popcorn the Bear collection. It's a large image and fun to color because of the large canvas.

I was able to achieve a fair amount of shading using my limited supply of Spectrum Noirs. They are pretty easy to work with and inexpensive compared to other alcohol markers.


There is a giveaway on my post too, just follow the instructions for your chance to win one of the new Poppets. Also, our monthly challenge is going on and it's "Going Green" the prize at the end of them month are a couple of packs of the Spectrum Noirs!!  So be sure to check it out!
