Teddy's Travels & the Brewers game!

Happy Tuesday all!! Hope your week is going well. We had a blast at the Brewers game on Sunday.....I have pictures below so if you're interested...stay tuned! If you're not....no hard feelings.....take a gander at the card then you can be on your merry way :)



I absolutely love Rachelle Anne Miller images. They are soooo adorable....but I have a really hard time coloring them. I don't have any actual stamps....but I received this image in my Christmas card from Tammi Buck, who is one of my suppliers, lol. Seriously, she has sent me sooo many images....thank you Tammi!!

So.....what better way to color an image you're not good at coloring, than with a medium you're also not good with. Yep, I used my Copics for this one. I knew I wanted to use papers from the DCWV Citrus stack....so I did my best to match. Maybe it's because I don't have *nearly* enough Copics that I find it hard to color with them. I used 2 different papers from the stack.....plus Real Red for the base & matte....& I cut 2 of the flowers from other papers in the stack. Yes, that big one was a bear to cut!! If you know me, you know I hate cutting, lol. Maybe it's because I never learned how. I never went to kindergarten....& to this day I give my mom a hard time about that. The flower on top was easier, but seriously, it took me about 1/2 hour to cut that big one!! By that time I was done. I cranked out a Cuttlebug corner....added some glitter & faux Dew Drops & I was done!! I was going to add ribbon under the main image, but I had already glued it to the other layer.....oops....I really need to think these things through better!




Close up of Lily....



And now for pictures from our day at Miller Park!! We had so much fun....even though the Brewers LOST 5-4 :( But it was an exciting game.....a few homers so we even got to see Bernie go down the slide!!




Here are the boys in front of the Harley Davidson deck....





And the must have picture, the boys with one of the sausages.....the Chorizo.....(for those who have never seen a Brewers game, they always have a sausage race during the 5th inning. Well, it IS Milwaukee, ya know, lol....)





Our seats were right near the Kid Zone....which is full of free activities for the kids. They had a fast pitch area, a "beat the Brewer" where the kids run against a Brewer....& lots of photo ops, like this one....





We had great seats.....8 rows up, 2 sections away from the Brewers dugout! We found out that these were $48 seats!!! $192 in tickets.....FREE!!! I will never see those seats again....sigh....





This is how close we were.....sigh again....





And last but not least....the best part.....when Matthew got to lead the base run after the game. He not only got to lead the other kids.....he had his name announced over the PA....& as you can see from this picture....he was on the Jumbotron!!! You can see Michael took full advantage of Matthew's good luck....lol....

It was a great day that we will cherish forever. BUT....can you believe this....LAST night's game the Brewers won 14-12!!!! Can you imagine how exciting THAT game must have been?? And not only that, Prince Fielder hit his first career grand slam home run!!!! Boy, I would have LOVED for that to have happened on Sunday!!!

Well if you made it this far, thanks for looking at my pictures! It was an exciting day for all of us, one that we will not soon forget. Thanks to Great Clips & the Brewers for making it happen!!!
