Lovely Day

My Grammy is staying with us for an extended visit. One of the places she wanted to see again was Cape May.

We spent a couple of hours on the beach. It was an absolutely gorgeous day. And we didn't feel the earthquake either, lol.

Her old house is still there and looks great!
It is relatively unchanged. New paint colors and the pool we had to the right of the house is long gone. She also can't believe how tall the tree in front is now.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just spent 3 days at CKC Valley Forge. I'll be posting class projects and reviews all this week - still have to finish some of them!

But Guess What ?
Every year, at the Friday night crop, they ask participants to make cards
to go to our service members overseas and they make a contest
out of it. You have 1 hour to complete any card of your choosing using
the card stock base that they provide - this year it was orange.

 I won first place!
I guess I can't say "I'm not a cardmaker" any longer. :)

My daughter went up later and took the pictures with her phone so please excuse the quality - she's only 11!

I had no idea what I was going to do. Especially as orange is one of those colors that I don't use often. But I had just picked up the Fancy Pants Love Birds collection pack at a clearance sale. The banner design on the front of the card was cut from a sheet of the paper and then I cut additional triangle from another sheet and used pop dots to add dimension to the card. I had a random paper doily in some supplies I brought with me and the sentiment was also in the collection pack.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cape May - FtLoS

This week at For the Love of Sketches, Donna used the cover of the Beatles Second Album for the sketch inspiration.
I have received a bunch of old 1970's photos that were taken with 110 film and their quality is not great. I scan and reprint all my photos. Photos from a hundred years ago I have no problem with changing the size but these photos shot with 110 lose quality fast! This layout was a fantastic way to get a bunch of these photos grouped together. I'll surely be using it (or a variation of it) again.

Thanks for stopping by!
