and I just can't hide it. lalalalalala!!! You know how that song goes. Right?! Well this weekend my family and I are going camping... by the beach!!!! I'm definitely looking forward to getting away with the family, eating camping food (especially Smores) and being with one of our good family friends at church (the Williamson's). I'm crossing my fingers that the water is not too cold though. I know last week when I took the kids to the beach, the water was still on the cold side.
Well anyways, before I head out the door, I wanna share my latest projects and what challenges inspired them....
Over at Method Playground blog, the latest challenge was to use a chipboard as a template for stitching. I have to tell you that I've never done this technique before and I'm glad I jumped in the challenge. It was very easy and being that there's soooo many chipboard shapes out there, the possiblities are endless. You betcha that I'll be trying this trick again soon.
This page will go on my "Me" album and it just documents my LOVE for Spaghetti. I seriously can eat this dish for every meal of my life. Seriously is that good for me!!!
I marked around the heart shape chipboard with a pencil and did some stitching with embroidery floss. I finished it off by making heart shape lines with pen.
Ur a Hoot! Card
this one was done for the Be Inspired #39 challenge over at the Cuttlebug blog. We were to use a woodland creature or nature things and the color scheme provided. I love, love, love joining in challenges that have specific color schemes to use cause I get to try out different combos that I would've never put together myself.
I used an owl stamp that I got at the Michael's dollar stamp bin and fancied up my handmade tree branch with a cuttlebug embossing folder.
Thank you for looking.
and I'm off!!!
Till next time,
