Well hello!! I'm back and this is a live post LOL!!! Trying to get back into the swing of things around here. Laundry and errands following our vacation and itching to get crafty again. We took a trip up to Mackinac Island, Michigan (I do love that dreamy place!) for a couple of days then traveled down the coast of Lake Huron visiting all of the lighthouses! We did the west coast, Lake Michigan, two years ago and loved it. So next we need to visit all of them around the upper peninsula! I had my fix of Kilwin's toasted coconut ice-cream!!! Max is the best little traveler and loves all of the adventure. We rented bikes on the island and they have pet buggies to pull behind your bike. You know like the ones little kids ride in. He LOVES it...it's actually his third visit there and his third time cycling around the island. He's also Mr. Popularity when we travel. That sweet boy does attract attention!!! Anyway we had a great time, very relaxing and lots of fun. Oh...we also stopped in Bay City to watch the Tall Ships come in!
I saw the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger challenge photo yesterday ~ A Little Romance and new this would be a good way to motivate me again. Here's my entry...
I found a small stamp store in Bay City and picked up a couple of things. One being a package of Melissa Francis pearls. This pretty lady was part of the packaging. Isn't the cross around her neck lovely, it looks like a rosary to me! I added some Creative Imaginations paper beside her. My pretty Webster's Pages trim seemed a perfect fit with her fancy gown. This Impression Obsession sentiment is just beautiful! I picked it up at the stamp convention this past spring. When looking for a stamp to put on the PTI doily, I remembered my Hydrangea (Inkadinkado) stamp. It seemed old fashioned and delicate. I love it on this card!
Speaking of hydrangea, the Papercraft Star challenge has a fabulous inspiration photo this week with this very flower!! Sooooo I think I'll link this card up there as well! Two for one, way to jump back into things huh!!!
Have a beautiful day friends, blessing to each and every one of you ~Lisa
