May Stamp of the Month: Be Yourself

My girls and I absolutely LOVE the May stamp of the month, Be Yourself! We had so much fun yesterday decorating t-shirts. :) We used my old Fabrico ink pads (I think the name changed to VersaCraft or something like that), but I've been told that acrylic paint works too.
In case you can't see all the details, both shirts say "Be Yourself..." at the top, and "everyone else is taken" at the bottom. The girls picked out their favorite image to be the highlighted one. On the back, we stamped "One of a Kind." The iron-on bling came from Wal-Mart in the fabric section. Hope you enjoy these as much as we do. I am even thinking about making myself one...

Last but not least is a card I made for a swap using the Be Yourself stamp set and the Bella papers. Instead of using all the colors of the Bella pack, I used the back side of two of the papers to show off the Hollyhock. To me, the Desert Sand paper looks a lot like cheetah or jaguar spots. (Insert "sexy" rolling-r sound here.) You can check out what my talented swap group created on my CTMH website (link at right) under My Art.

Remember, no matter what, always be yourself! Everyone else is taken.

So instead of finishing up my two pages, I drooled over the new idea book last night and worked on my 'want' list. Oh yes, Bella and 'Be Yourself' are both on that list! Shirts are *adowable* as are the two cutie pies!

I was wondering how the shirts came out - I agree w/Grammie, they're "adowable"! I hope to do some more scrappin' tonight and take some pictures.
