Stopping by to say hi & June Blog Hop

By June 25, 2008General

I am happy to report that we arrived safely in Maine late Tuesday night!  The drive went really well and the kids were all on their best behavior!  I think David and I *finally* have a routine & system worked out to get us through the 22+ hour drive with our sanity intact!  This morning we woke to a beautifully perfect summer Maine morning with the sun sparkling on Casco Bay!  Just stunning!  We were able to take the kids to the beach today, with it being Ethan’s first experience with sand and he loved it!

Did you stop over to the Blog Hop tonight to see what everyone has been up to?  This month’s challenge was to play with acetate (a.k.a. transparencies) and everyone came up with such AMAZING ideas!  (You can see a list of everyone’s links HERE!)  I didn’t have a chance to complete a project before leaving on vacation, but I thought I would bring our my favorite transparency card from the past!  To this day this is still one of my favorite creations ever! It uses the fantastically versatile Piece of Cake stamp set along with the white sheer blossoms we carry from Maya Road (you can read ALL the details about this project in the original post HERE).  Think of all the other fun things you could layer on an acetate card base in place of the flowers… punched shapes from a variety of cardstocks or patterned papers, die-cut shapes from hundreds of different materials, page pebbles, and the list goes on and on!  Even if you didn’t participate in the Blog Hop tonight, I hope you will try your hand at working with acetate!  It’s such a unique material that can be used in SO many ways!

Enjoy the rest of your week and happy stamping!
