Hello Peeps, I am desperately trying to get back in the groove of things after an amazing week in the gorgeous sunny, warm weather and scenery that is Palm Beach!
Reality set in quite quickly with this:
Four inches of snow the day we returned, and another five plus inches overnight last night (very sad face).
I'm working on photos and editing but I have a few to share to give an overview:
Just several of the views from our friends' 16th floor condo. All windows had water views including our guest bedroom!! Positively breathtaking.
For T Stands For Tuesday I'll share our snacks and waters we were treated to upon our arrival. We had a most wonderful week!
I got my doggy fixes every chance I could get. Here along the marina I met Tillie (who gave lots of kisses:) and her owners who were heading to the Bahamas on their
One day we all went to Vero Beach to have lunch and visit friends we know from our beach vacations in Delaware. I'm with Bella who was anxiously waiting to get permission to go in the pool:)
On another day my friend Lynne and I went to a special exhibit while the guys went to a men's luncheon:
The Downton Abbey traveling exhibition was nearby in West Palm Beach!! I am such a fan and this exhibit did not disappoint. It was AWESOME!!! I took 175 pics-don't worry, I'm not posting them:):)
And last pic (in this post) of our trip:
Although I did NOT take art supplies as I wanted to take a break I did do lots of art before leaving, and this tag I made quickly today...
I printed out two contact sheet size pics from our vacation and glued them to the tag. The background was made by spraying water on Distress Oxide inks smooshed onto my craft sheet then dragging the tag over it. I used gold mica flakes in a few places. The sentiment is not only a favorite stamp, but also a very favorite sentiment of mine:):) Sharing my tag with Tag Tuesday (my favorite stamp); the Simon Wednesday Challenge (anything goes); and the Simon Monday Challenge (whatever the weather).
There is a new theme for this month over at Art Journal Journey " Hello Springtime" and for this I have this journal page:
I thought this would fit the theme with those vibrant colors and the couple dressed in Spring/Easter finery. This was a mop up page from other projects. Paper Dolls and Snarky Small Talk sentiments -Tim Holtz/Ranger.
Finally I'll share a calendar journal page from my Dylusions Creative Dyary:
I used some Dina Wakley paints and collage tissue faces; Tim Holtz Snarky Small Talk stickers, layering stencils- Honey Comb and Linen; scallop stamp (Inky Antics); black, white gel pens.
Joining Paint Party Friday also. And do pop in to visit the special 8th birthday celebration! Thank you dear EVA and Kristin for keeping us together every Friday to share our creativity. Mwah!!
Have a wonderful, creative week everyone!
