Commit to the Flick

By far one of my favorite blogger/ You Tubers is Laura Bassen. Not only does she make the most fabulous projects but she is just fantastic to listen to.  No matter my mood she can always put a smile on my face.  Well today was no exception.  During the video she posted today for the Reverse Confetti block hop, she was talking about how she enjoys flicking or making splatters on her cards. In true Laura style she said you gotta "Commit to the Flick".  Well not only did I laugh for 10 minutes but it gave me such inspiration.  That was just what I needed today.  Even though it's Mother's Day I am not getting to spend it with my wonderful kids, (love you Matthew & Heather) so I was a little down.  So instead of just continuing to feel sorry for myself I decided to pay homage to Laura and commit to the flick.

And of course it had to be bright rainbow colors and a white sentiment on black.  My skills do not begin to equal Laura's but we all have goals.  I encourage you to check out her video today.  You can click on the link in her name above and it will take you to her block.  And try committing to the flick yourself.

Paper - Stamper select white, PaperTreyInk
             Basic black, Stampin Up
Ink - Tim Holtz distress mini's in squeezed lemonade, carved pumpkin, candied apple, cracked pistachio & salty ocean
Pen - White gel pen, Signo Uni-ball
Die - Wave cover plate, PaperTreyInk

I hope that everyone finds something that makes then laugh for 10 minutes today and have a Happy Mother's Day.

Hugs and Happy Crafting, Jacqueline
