It's been a fun but busy few weeks for our family so far. We've done a couple of boating/camping trips and have done tons of work around the house. I think Steve was a little relieved to go back to work today to get a rest from all the painting, digging, cutting and rearranging he's had to do around here!
Here's a few pictures from our trips...
Catching up with the paper on the boat...cool weather but gorgeous scenery.
Meghan, Julia, Alex and Dana keeping each other company and giggling a ton!
So, now we're home, the laundry is well underway and I've finally had a chance to make a card. I came across this challenge on the new Core'dinations blog to use everything but the kitchen sink to create a project. I love challenges like this, they really get me thinking and on the lookout for things I can use.
I found some washers in the garage and I ran them through my Sizzix BIGkick for this effect. I used a cutting pad on the multipurpose platform and then placed the washers right on the cutting pad. The Core'dinations paper went on next, followed by a silicone rubber pad and the impressions pad. I sanded a bit and added Prima studs to the centers of the washer impressions. The rub ons are from American Crafts.
There's still lots of summer left...hope you're having a good one.
