Waiting for Irene at the cabin

I 'evacuated' myself to the cabin in New Hampshire, lol, to play and wait for Mother Nature's wrath further away from the coast. Craig stayed home- one half mile from the coast. We will see if either cabin needs a new roof Monday morning!

I had this necklace waiting to be made, so that's what I did today- Acorns and Fall Leaves!

All of the pieces came from Michael's, Joann's or Walmart, except for the bead caps for the acorns. They came from Anita's Beads.

I know it's hard to see the clasp- it is a set of Vintage Leaves I got at the show in Manchester, NH a couple of weeks ago. If you click on the picture you might be able to see it closer.

Thanks for looking, and good luck Sunday if you are near Irene!

Sweet Peas Growing in Vines

Not so long ago my Mother needed a sympathy card, so we got PTI's With Sympathy out, and started working with it. I, of course, needed baby cards, not sympathy cards, so here is what my cards looked like, lol!!

Those are older SU felt flowers with little gold half pearls in the center. The sweet pea baby is a Lockhart stamp.

Blue bunnies- or is that white?

I've had these bunnies sitting around for a while; believe it or not they are stamped with PTI's 'new' Spring Rain ink. It worked perfectly for me this time, I could just never get a card to work that week and put them aside until now.

I am so loving Memory Box papers, and have been buying whatever packs I can get my hands on, especially if they are pastel colors. The card base is a Memory Box card, I have a bunch of those, too, lol, and need to use them up!

The 'baby' is cut with a Boss Cut alphabet with Blueberry Sky paper. this car went together so easily I can't believe I didn't think of it before!

May Papertrey Pages- Finally!

I finally finished my May Papertrey Pages, lol... and they aren't quite done yet since I have to investigate what the date was, which means going back to the store machine that can read the bigger card these are on.

The challenge was to use a recent set from PTI, so I took photos of the little boys being space men on top of the car one morning, and teamed it up with
Boy Basics: Out Of This World .

There is a die for the rocket ship of course, but not for the flames...curses!! There are a total of 8 sets of flames on the pages, lol, and they are not so easy to cut!!!

The Space Monkeys paper is by Reminisce, and matches the PTI Rocket just perfectly. I used some of the stickers and embellies as well from the set.

I colored the 8 ships with Copics and Spica glitter pens. The background paper is a green 12 x 12 from SU, and I took a little dotted wood backed stamp and went all around with Versamark, then embossed with clear embossing powder. The background photo layers are Harvest Gold and Summer Sunrise.

Aren't they the sweetest? Laser guns and all!!
