Sentiment Set & Jacob down to 5

I am trying to do a lot of crafting with Jacob while he is here, (it helps him relax between dates) but often I find that I am not sure what I want to do or create. Today I decided I would grab one of my new stamp sets from  Pink By Design and just play with it. What I ended up with was a set of stamped sentiments all ready to put onto projects and a list of ideas to use them for. It was all so easy and relaxed.
I pulled out the Just Breathe set (I felt it made the most sense for how I was feeling) and grabbed a piece of leftover white paper. I used my Dew Drop inks and just stamped a different saying onto each smaller piece of paper I had cut. As  I was doing this I kept thinking of the card or layout I could create with them AND I wrote some of them down for actual use!!  It feels good to have some ideas up in my head and I loved looking at the stamps.
If you do not like your first stamp, just turn it over and try again.
As for Jacob...after the drama of the 2 on 1 date, he had a good night sleep and than toured the town with Barbi H. the next morning. He told her right up front that he was not giving a rose out on the date, but that did not mean he wanted her to go, he just did not want any pressure on that date. They had a wonderful time.
That night he took the rest of the girls to a killer concert. They not only enjoyed the music, but the company.  Barbi D. actually felt that she had made such wonderful friends, but knew that the love connection was gone so before the roses were about to be handed out she pulled Jacob aside and said her good-byes. Jacob was so happy with her honesty and they will most likely be friends for a long time to come. This left Jacob with only 5 girls and 5 that he truly was feeling connections with: Marie Elise, Belle, Charlotte, Barbi F. and Barbi H.   
This weekend I hope you will join us for the Me & Mickey Blog hop on Saturday. I am super excited about sharing my project, the first one Jacob lent a hand one when he arrived.
