BOO!!!!!


Check this out, I made this cute little decoration for my living room out of some old Maya Road chipboard tags. I covered them with white ink and then distressed a little with chocolate ink.
I used the BEWARE, CREEPY COBWEBS and MERRY MONSTERS stamp sets from Close TO My Heart to decorate them. For the BOO letters, I inked my RUSTIC ALPHABET letters with black ink and then kissed the letters with the cobweb from the CREEPY COBWEBS stamp set. Isn't it cute?

A few vacation photos

I wanted to share a few vacation photos with you, last week we took our holiday trailer and stayed in the mountains for a week.....I never wanted to leave, it's so beautiful there! Most of these photos were taked near Banff, Alberta, Canada. I think I live in the most beautiful country!














We're Tubing Again!

Here is another tubing layout, again using Close To My Hearts Moon Doggie Level 2 paper pack and Stickease. I also used the August word puzzle on my journalling block. As in the other layouts, I used the color ready alphabets and pounced them with coordinating inks.....don't you love that? So simple and FAST! I cut the file folder, under my title, out using a Coluzzle template. And see how it opens to reveal 2 more photos! Again, Love That!
Happy summer everyone!
