Back From Vacay and Reconnecting
Well hey there lovelies! I've missed you and have lots to catch up on now that I'm back from a fabulous week at the beach in Fenwick Island, DE with friends. Special cookies courtesy of one of our friends Wendy who is an amazing baker! Still have photo editing to do so I'll have more to share about the beach in future posts. If I can that is.What is up with Blogger?? Not able to load my pictures in "compose" mode all of a sudden! Luckily I was able to figure getting them on the post in HTML or so I hope it all works.
Upon going through all the mail that piled up including bills and lots of junk was this treasure:
Altered Book Lover hosted an ATC swap to celebrate the 4th anniversary of T Stands For Tuesday and I received this lovely packet of ephemera along with that artsy ATC on the right from Eileen. I love it! The ATC is on my art table and I have already used a piece of the ephemera (on a tag a bit below:) Thank you Eileen!
Speaking of... for T Stands for Tuesday:
New Hope, PA in picturesque Bucks County for the day. The eclectic community of New Hope celebrates the LGBT community and is home to many LGBT-friendly businesses. The main street is lined with unique shops, wonderful eateries and a Playhouse, along with lovely places to stay overnight. I don't have any photos because first off it was a gorgeous day and jam packed with people (and dogs) everywhere!! It was also "motorcycle Sunday" and there were hundreds of them-some quite loud. We went to a Cuban restaurant Mojito Cuba Caribe for lunch and to see our friend Lorenzo play. Great time, and great sandwiches! Drinks were water and virgin mojitos.
My August calendar spreads :
I used gel print deli papers for the backgrounds along with photochips from Darkroom Door and some found words from a magazine. And in continuing with the beach theme:
Dianne for showing us how to create pages in this style ;)
Lastly, a tag:
Joining in with the Simon Monday Challenge (theme is "nautical"); Tag Tuesday (Use Your Scraps); and Paint Party Friday. I am also joining in with my journal pages at Art Journal Journey hosted this month by the lovely Jo with the theme of "Poetry in Motion'. Thanks Jo;) Looking forward to catching up with all of you!
