back from valley forge…

what a show! i dont know what else to say. it was a crazy ride. but, i love seeing my friends and making new ones. terri and i of course got lost in Philadelphia. it always happens in PA! their streets are even numbered, but we still manage to drive around in circles.

we did eat at the same restaurant for three days! it is called max and erma’s. good tasting food! awesome burgers and desserts.

on the home front, we bought the kid a new car! she was so happy and excited. color guard practice started today. she loves it, but i always feel like she is never home. our pool guy is working hard to clean up that mess of a pool. maybe we can swim in a week – or two!

here is a new and an older layout:

the first layout is pink paislee portfolio with their resist hearts. i love those hearts. i want them on everything. buttons are jenni bowlin and resin flowers are mon ami gabby. and dollies are martha stewart. they are so nice and thick. i hand cut the blue hearts. i like how they are not the same size and shape. the orange is heidi swapp’s mist, but we are not carrying it anymore b/c it’s now in michael’s. so, you buy it with a coupon. the background paper is pink paislee’s resist paper with granite glimmer mist. my new favorite combo is granite glimmer mist with weathered wood and china blue distress ink together. yummy color of blue.

 

second one is basic grey with some vintage goodies and prima gears. oh, and a tim holtz charm.the black twine is american crafts. i am obsessed with wrapping twine and baker’s twine around my layouts. so vintage looking and cheap!

my prayers go out to the people of boston. i go to manchester, new hampshire in a week, which is only 35 minutes from boston. it’s such a great city with so much of our melting pot that represents our fine country. the older i get the more crazy people seem to be. who knows why, but we as americans can survive and prosper. thanks for taking time to read my silly thoughts. i hope all is well with you and yours.
