|suddenly awoke to the mailman knocking on my door—good day! my papertrey ink package arrived! this month’s new release, (every 15th of the month), came today! OWLS!!!!!!! i bought the owls! i love owls! these are particularly adorable because you build your own owl! and lots of cute sayings come with. once again, PTI continues with their great quality!!!!
i can’t wait to play with my new stamps!!!!!
|yesterday, we had a really nice day. we travelled to toledo for a birthday party. my nephew and son were born only hours apart. they both are celebrating their 14th birthday this week, so we went to celebrate with family. the day was beautiful. perfect weather. we had a really nice time. (even squeezed in a trip to starbucks on the way home.)
last night, while my hubby & i relaxed and watched “Vantage Point”, i enjoyed some scrappy time! (by the way–i loved vantage point. i knew i would.)
|i just LOVE papertrey ink. i have posted about them many times. i have never been disappointed. their products are amazing, the quality is fantastic. even the care that they take in shipping is great.
these cards were made using last month’s release: Birds of a Feather
|i love using the Marvy Punches. they add great detail, very easily. (you can buy these at papertrey ink also.)|
|this stamp even has a wing that can be stamped separately, to add more detail.|
|well, that sums up my day yesterday. i hope you had a great weekend & found time for yourself….maybe you scrapped too! if so, leave a comment!|
|hello. took this picture on june 1, while sitting in the sun…sipping my starbucks…reading my book….soaking up some warm rays. it was a beautiful day. (unlike today…rainy & crappy).
finally had a chance to scrap it today. (the last day of school!!!! tomorrow begins our summer!!!!! yippee!!!!!)
|i love this lined paper with the scalloped edges. i don’t know about you, but it’s a little pricey, so i try to use only a portion of it per layout…..so, in this case, i used only half.|
|wanted to try the new pleating method, with ribbon & staples. my bow was already tied when i remembered to try it….and the ribbon should have been longer. not thrilled with the look of the big staples, but considering that it was the first time i tried it, i’m pleased with the final look.|
|loved the bright picture. the ribbon, (which i’ve had forever), reminded me of a beach towel. the green paper on the left is covered with summer words.
the polka-dotted cellophane actually came on a cookie bouquet that i received for mother’s day. just seemed to work well together.
|SCHOOL’S OUT FOR THE SUMMER!!!!!! saw this cup, that someone designed, on the web. love it!!!!
hope your summer break is starting off superbly! looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow.
