TSB~Help From a Friend

Oh My Goodness...what have I been doing? It's been almost 2 weeks since my last post. I guess summer has been catching up with me! But this morning, I am sitting her with my cup of coffee getting a few posts together. I hate when my blog is neglected.
I'd like to say that I've been traveling Europe since I haven't been crafting but that just hasn't been the case! Even though I'm working on planning a trip to Amsterdam and London. We only have 3 1/2 months left in Europe so I'd like to make the best of it. Can you belive it...3 1/2's becoming real now!
Something I MUST share though because I really thought this was going to be a little one, Leila just started potty training. She's 2 1/2 and I thought for sure she was going to give me a hard time because her brother didn't even really "train", he just started to use the potty and that was it! So Sunday we were at a friends house and I ran out of diapers so I told her she needed to wear panties, she didn't like the idea at first but once she peed like a big girl she was super excited. So here we are on Wednesday and she has done amazingly well. Yesterday I even ventured out for the afternoon/evening and not a single accident. Now this morning she had an accident but right at the potty, I just think she waited too long to go and didn't quite make it but all in all...over the past 3 days she's only had 3 accidents! I'm a proud mama today! Can you tell? We have been telling EVERYONE that Leila is peeing in the potty like a big girl now! LOL!
Okay...on to the crafty I made a card for my The Stamping Boutique DT. This is Help from a friend....I just LOVE her...she was NOT easy to color though...lots of little parts to her. So I decided to take the easy way out and do a little paper piecing...her stockings and dress are both pieced! This is for  For Fun Challenges that TSB is sponsoring this week. So go over and join them for a chance to win some TSB images!!! The challenge this week is bright colors. I know...mine don't seem toooo bright but that orange is bright for me....I don't normally work with that color but I just love the DP so this is MY version of bright!!
