Scrap & Stamp Saturday!

This week's Scrap & Stamp Challenge was to create a "Water LO using 2 DP and a stamped image and 3 embellishments. My paper is from Noel Mignon's Five Foot Two (sold out!) & Eyes of Blue kit. (6 left!) The stamps I used are from Crafty Secret's Sea Side set. To create my "beach" I simply tore strips of paper, coated them with texture paste and sprinkled sand. Once dry, I shook off the excess, and inked the edges a bit. I layered them, glued them to my page and tucked some of my "seashells" in between.



The title was created the same way......Maya Road chipboard letter + texture paste + sand= cool title!
For your chance to win some scrapbooking goodies, go to the Scrap & Stamp site and link your "Water" LO there! Can't wait to see what you come up with! : )
****************************************************************
Today Kyle goes off to Boy Scout camp for a week. The poor kid is a nervous wreck. He keeps telling me he will be fine once he gets there. He had fun last year, so I am sure he will be fine.
We also have our annual block party today. I live right outside Chicago in a town very similar to Mayberry. Everyone knows everyone. People still help each other, wave to each other, and it has been a wonderful place to raise our kids. (And everyone is extremely kind to Cortney. The kids try so hard to include her in everything! That alone just makes my heart swell!) So I need to get baking and such! Have a FANTASTIC Saturday!
I apologize for not visiting much this week. I haven't been on the computer much, except to do my posts. Next week I will be hopping around a bit more! : )

Hi Michele! (that's my sister's name, and she spells it the same way!) Just popping in to thank you for your visit, and for your sweet comment...You have a lovely blog, and a beautiful family. I'm not a meat eater myself, but if I was, that pork chop peach melba would be the next thing I'd eat! It looks so delicious!...AND, I think your snowman card is just the cutest ever!!! Paulette :o)
