It is so crazy busy...but it is all fun stuff! School concerts, Field day, Field Trip for both the boys. Soccer tournaments, riding lessons, and lacrosse. This year both the boys field trips fell on the same day so my hubby took his first with Jack. I went with Nick to his...a big one...Washington D.C.
I don't know how we fit it all in but we saw all the monuments, the White House, 3 museums...needless to say my feet were killing me. Here are a few pictures. This is the Lincoln Memorial.
The White House
We saw a group of WWII vets having their picture at the memorial...it literally brought tears to my eyes.
We got tickets to go into the Butterfly Pavilion at the Smithsonian...I just loved that!
Of course I need a picture of my boy!
Now for some scrappy fun!
I did a Pebbles layout using the new May Bouquet. I really love how pretty this line is but can still be used for both boy and girl layouts.
Here are a few details...
I am in love with Nikki's line Dan the Record Man. It is so versatile! I created this layout of my brother's puppy Jake. Is he not the cutest?
Spellbinders did a fun product swap with the design team and I was thrilled to get a few embossing impressabilites...these are so darn fun! For this layout I laid a die over some cardstock and with a make-up sponge I inked over it. I then punched some circle out of the cardstock...super easy way to make your own unique embellishments. Thank you so much Spellbinders!
Here is a little detail shot...
I also used a die to emboss over metal tape. I think it makes for a great effect...very masculine too! Just in time for Father's Day!
This is kind of tough to see...sorry! The glare off metal tape makes it tough to get a picture of.
Last but not least I wanted to share a card I made for someone that has been having a rough couple of weeks. I used spray inks to color the flowers and then laid the punched circle over them...added a few dots of stickles for fun...so pretty I think!
Hope you are all having a great Monday! Thanks for stopping by!
