Triplets Update

I have new pictures to share with everyone.  Oh my goodness, I am so blessed to have these sweet babies in my life, along with my other grandkids.
Four months old, smiling, cooing, almost laughing
About 13 lbs. probably more by now.


4 Generations - First visit with Great Grandpa
Brad, Avery, Me, Grandpa, Anna, Justin & Connor
My dad had just turned 98 and the triplets just turned 4 months.

Our trip to Lake Chelan in August.  Connor, Anna & Justin
Unfortunately, it was so smoky from forest fires that we only got to go out one day.  The triplets did not go out at all.

Connor or Justin?
Answers are below in red.  Don't cheat....

Connor or Justin?

Miss Anna or Empress as she is so often called.

Connor or Justin?

Connor or Justin?

I thought I would do a little guessing game.  I usually can tell them apart, but sometimes in pictures especially pictures by themselves it is very hard to tell.

Answers:  First set it is Justin and then Connor.
Second set it is Connor & Justin
How did you do?
So Connor's face is fuller and shaped a little different than Justin's, but as Justin has filled out it is getting harder to tell who is who.  Connor also has a little pointier ear according to mom and dad, but I don't usually go by that.  Mom & dad had them mixed up for about 3-4 hours after a photo shoot.  Mom told dad to dress Justin in blue, so he picked up a baby and dressed him.  It was later in the day that they realized that it was Connor and not Justin.  Lol...

Thanks for stopping by.

PTI's Make It Monday #336 with Laurie

A card for this week's MIM

I am creating this card at my BFF's house.  It was a spur of the moment trip for me as my son, Brad had to come to Portland for a work trip and Ramie was unable to come with him at the last minute.  So, I texted Col and asked if she would like a visitor for 4 days.  And she said yes.  Although we haven't had any marathon days in the craft room it is just so nice to visit.
She's still recuperating, it has been a long road for her, but she is getting there.

Color Throwdown #510

I haven't played in Color Throwdown for quite awhile and had the opportunity to do so today.

Atenew's Totally Tropical with CP inks.  This is a multi layer stamp set, but I thought these pieces were so pretty on their own.

Thanks for stopping by.

PTI's Create Along With Us Sept. 2018

This is a card for this month's Create Along With Us
I used Quatrefoil and dry embossed the coverplate and then sponged on Distress Inks in Rainbow pattern on another sheet and die cut it to get the colored pieces to form the pattern 

I picked these two cards from Betsy to use as my inspiration

Thanks for stopping by.
