Golden Sea Layout

Hi Everyone!

I've titled this layout the Golden Sea because of the all the gold foil accents and details on the page. The paper itself has gold foil with a ocean sea theme. 

This is a cute little accent piece that I made. A pocket and tag.

I also cut out star fis images for embellishment accents.

I know it's hard to tell but the gold foil background really makes this paper pop. I tried to take a picture so that you can see how shiny it is.

I bling pages. This may not be bling but it's shiny.

Summer Necessity

They say that necessity is the mother of all inventions. So I took on this challenge. I had only the most minimum amount of crafting supplies available. Just one bag!

What did I bring?
* 1 CTMH paper packet
* 1 SEI scrapbooking kit
* 1 Scrap Happy Scrapbooking Kit
* 1 DCWV paper pad
* 1 Neutral Color DCWV Cardstock Packet
* Adhesive (ATG, 3D squares,and glue dots)
* Scissors
* 12x12 Paper Trimmer 
* Markers and Pens
* Neutral Embellishments (hemp, studs,bling)
* Cricut and a few cartridges (forget my power cord so I didn't use it)
* 10 card bases and envelopes

I actually had to buy white card stock during my trip because I ran out. 

Below is a layout featuring Die Cuts with a View Paper packet I picked up this summer. 

I enjoyed hand cutting all the cute little images to make accent pieces. 

I cut out the ship in the bottle tied it with hemp and hand cut the labels.

What's a captain without a steering wheel?

Okay, okay this is not paper piercing. In fact, it's a Durable Studs from Close to My Heart.

At times I wanted more supplies but that didn't hinder me from creating. I just created with what I had. I made some cards without sentiments now I need to add sentiments and embellishments.

More to come so stay tune.

Meanwhile happy crafting!

Things that make you smile

So I have a few pictures that will make you either smile or laugh.

Have Mainers gone ganster?
The names of these boats are things that I don't want to be anywhere near.

Holy Macrel!  If you are the captain then who's steering the boat?

Don't worry be happy.
Freedom just birth a baby. What kind of gift do you recommend I get?

When even wild life loves the ocean view.

Something to make you smile.. frolicking deer.

The face you make when you are caught eating the last cookie.

I am sure this deer is thinking "Tourist!"

Because at the end of the day vacation time is Time for Us.

I hope these pictures and captions made you smile today.

Where or where have you been?

Hi everyone!

I have not gone missing, only online. Life has kept me busy and I am currently on a much needed vacation in Maine. It has been wonderful to breath fresh air, eat lots of lobster and blue berries.

Hubby and I on the family luxury lobster boat.

Great window view and fresh air. 

While on the water I came across this boat "Good Idea". It made me smile. Just another confirmation I am in the right place at the right time. I call these moments "life winks".

So I had a good idea to scrapbook and create greeting cards for sale and will be sharing pictures soon.
