1. We've had such a great week visiting with my brother, his girlfriend & my nephew, Noah!
This was a photo that we took of the cousins six years ago, in 2008:
And this is the photo that we took on Monday:
They haven't changed too much.... ;)
2. Noah spent the night with us and we played Risk & watched Frozen.
We took him to the beach on Tuesday.
3. On Thursday, we planned "the best day ever." In the morning, we went to the zoo....
4.... and then, after lunch at A&W, we went to the Fun Mountain Water Slides.
5. I'm playing along with the July Papertrey Ink Blog Hop today.
This month's challenge was to be inspired by this photo:
I was inspired by the gingham pattern on the envelope, the colours
and the bird.
I really wanted to use my new Papertrey Ink Sprinkles MIM kit,
so I created a shaker card.
The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye, which I layered over vintage cream card stock.
The frame was die cut using the frame from the MIM kit.
I stamped the sentiment (Wet Paint) and birds (Feather Finery) onto
the cream card stock behind the frame and filled the shaker with sequins from the kit.
Thanks for looking!
