6/10-12~ School's Out For Summer Blog Hop

Welcome to the School's Out For Summer Blog Hop. I have always loved summer.  Although my children have finished their education :) I still enjoy the slower pace of summer. My favorite thing about summer is having fun in the water.  We are fortunate to live by several big rivers and not far from the beaches and so there is always something fun going on,
You should have gotten here from Wendy-  http://wleitel.blogspot.com/   and if not you can start at the beginning with Nancy- http://blog.fancywithnancy.com/  .   As I said I love water so I chose as my project a card with a cruise ship.  I cute the ship from the Pack Your Bags cart and layered it on Echo Parks Litttle Boy Paper (can you tell I LOVE this paper ?).  Of course I had to use stickles.I have never been on a cruise but one day I want my husband and I to go.

BLOG CANDY:  I will be giving away a $25.00 gift card from Michael's on June 13.If you are not a follower please become one and just leave me a comment with a way to get in touch with you .Please visit all the stops on this hop---there will be great projects.

Happy Birthday to Me --June 4th

Welcome to my celebration of Dee's Birthday. You should have gotten here from Becky http://beckscricards.blogspot.com/ . If not you can start at the beginning with our honoree's blog http://deesdesignsfrommyheart.blogspot.com/ .  The only requirement for our project was to use some shade of purple (eggplant) and maybe be a little vintage.  I made Dee's card using the Pack Your Bags Cartridge.  I cut the card with deep eggplant paper from the DCWV Mademoiselle Stack and cut the lady out of lighter cardstock and sprayed her with Lindy's Stamp Gang Silver Mist.  I added the flowers from Recollections and I think it turned into a pretty vintage card for Dee's Birthday. YAY!!!  Now BLOG CANDY==== Please become a follower if you aren't already and leave a comment with your contact information.  Monday morning I will randomly pick the winner of 2 spray bottles of Lindy's Stamp Gang Metallic Spray.  Their products are great.  You should now go to Emily http://www.createserendipity.net/ --I am sure she has something beautiful done.
