I will be taking a bit of a blog break as I am going on vacation! I will be gone for approximately two weeks. I am going to Bainbridge Island, Washington to visit my Dad and Mary. Pictured here is the ferry that I take from Seattle over to the island! It is great fun to take the 35 minute ferry ride over. Very relaxing. Mike is staying home as he just started a new job. I will miss him terribly, but also it will be fun to visit out there just by myself as it will be kind of like a retreat. I can go for walks in the woods with Dad and Mary, go out on their sailboat, and spend lots of time reading and listening to music. I have already planned about three books to take with me and there is a great bookstore on the island.....Also, I looked at what movie is playing at the local artsy theater and it is "The Namesake" which is a movie I really want to see! And, as an extra added bonus, my Mom's very dear friend Carolyn lives in Bremerton, Washington so I will be able to visit with her for a day. I leave on Thursday, 4/12 and return on 4/23. I won't be blogging while I am gone as I just want to totally immerse myself in the surroundings there.
Below is my addition to Kim Kwan's Alphabetica journal. I must say I really like it. I love stamping phrases on people!
Her journal, Alpha Bitty, is just the coolest! It is made up of old Bingo cards. Great size and so much fun to work in! Below is the back of my card and the little story that goes with it.
Below is a totally wonderful and gorgeous card that my internet friend Jennifer sent me. The stamp she used is from a fun and whimsical company called Stamping Bella. Jennifer's coloring on this card is out of this world! Great shading and use of glitter!
I am really loving collecting vintage patterns! Not for the pattern inside, but for the images on the front. Isn't this one cute? When I return from vacation I want to start using these for cards and round robin journals.
Yesterday my Mom came over for a card making session. We had a great time. She made 11 cards!
Here she is holding up one of her masterpieces!!!
Out of this chaos came her creations!
And while I am gone......Mr. Pal will be watching all of you! So behave yourselves!
