Planes and Automobiles

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010


When my mom was visiting in August, we took a trip up to Sacramento to visit my cousin. We stayed the night in the area and then took a scenic route home. We may have also pit stopped at craft stores. 😉 I added a couple photos from our flight back to NH together. No trains were involved, so I shortened the quote for the title.
Details: Brown patterned paper is by Jillibean Soup. White foam embellishments are by Thickers. Title was cut using the Opposites Attract Cricut cartridge.

27th Birthday Celebrations

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

I got to celebrate my birthday twice this year. First I went out to dinner with my parents and brother in NH. Then on my actual birthday, I had a wonderful evening with my hubby! He took some photos of me (it’s fun to have spontaneous photo shoots on occasion!) and then we went to pick out diamond earrings. Once I was extra sparkly, we enjoyed dinner at a wonderful mediterranean restaurant and finished at Red Mango for dessert with friends.

Details: Patterned papers and orange wavy border are by Crate Paper. Flowers are by Making Memories. “27th” and “celebrations” were written with Making Memories glitter alpha stickers. “Birthday” was cut using the Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge.

A Walk with a View

Sunday, June 21st, 2009



While my parents were visiting, we went to Ed Levin County Park to see views of the bay from the ridge. We weren’t up for a long hike, so we just walked up the hill a bit to enjoy the nice weather and had a decent view. We also watched some paragliders.

Details: Patterned papers are from the DCWV Green Stack (70% recylced). I made the journaling block by rounding the corners of a square scrap and cutting the tree out of the extra patterned paper.

Natural Beauty

Thursday, February 5th, 2009


I saw one day on CNN these botanical gardens in Maine. It just so happened that my dad and I would be passing through the area anyway so we decided to check it out. It was just beautiful. There are a few different sections of the garden: a tranquility area with carved stone, a children’s area to build stick forts, a waterfall with benches nearby, and a hall of birches. I had a lot of fun taking pictures here.

Details: Background paper is: “Lavender Rosebuds” by Paper Pizazz. Journaling tag is from a Target $1 spot set. “Natural” was cut using the Calligraphy Cricut cartridge. “Beauty” was cut using Storybook.
