|went to a birthday party for my sister this evening….had a great time. while we enjoyed the beautiful sunset, i messed around with some silly self-portraits. (sadly, i never even knew that my phone camera took black & white photos. my 14 year old had to show me.) i practically look cross-eyed in the second one.|
|i also had a few quick minutes to scrap today. made a bday card to for my sister. i used my new stamps from papertrey ink…..
so this is all i have to offer for my Sunday Scrappin
Category: my family
|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!|
|when they’re little, we hang our children’s artwork on the fridge.
when they’re older, we post them on our blog.
nick made this for me today, using paint.net.
he even put my blog name on it.
thanks, nick! love it!!!!
goofy things to do when the power is out for 5 hours:
- toss football with dad, dashing through ankle-deep puddles
- wash cars
- eat yummy snacks–calories consumed in the dark don’t count, right?
- listen to music on your laptop and make up new dance moves
- attempt to read a good book as light creeps through the windows
- resort to hand-held electronics for games (pathetic, huh? how did laura ingalls fill her time?)
well, as you can tell, our power went out shortly after supper and didn’t return until after midnight.
poor chewy has some kind of odd eye infection…keeps squinting at us and woke up this morning with eye goop (sorry for the vision that creates). vet apt later today.
well, the sun is shining, lots to do today! have a great thursday!
