I'm back from a getaway with my family. Truly the most memorable 4th of July yet. We traveled 15 hours or so to Island Park, ID and spent many days in Yellowstone hiking and sight seeing. We watched fireworks on my birthday on a beautiful stretch of land between Island Park and West Yellowstone called Hungry Bear Flats...such a fun experience. On the 4th, we watched fireworks in West Yellowstone in the middle of a rain storm with lightening striking as the fireworks went off. Completely amazing! This summer has worked its way up to one of the busiest of my life, but busy is good and I have loved spending so much time with family. It's been 4 years or so since all of my brothers, their families, and my little family have all been together. Now comes the hard part, wondering when it will happen again and wishing we could be closer. Next up...a trip to the beach, pheewwww!
Just sharing quilt block no.3. I've finally decided for sure what I will do with my blocks when they are all completed. I'm not your traditional kind of girl and love the original idea of sewing them all together, but for me I will be framing them in an old, shabby window frame I've had tucked away with each block framed in a window pane. I will be sure to show you the finished project when it's complete.
The rub-on is from 7gypsies, chipboard and die cut from Melissa Frances, trim from Prima and Maya Road, book print and buttons are vintage, and then a few other odds and ends were tossed in
This first card is a redo of another just like it that I created in blues for a baby boy. I used Papertrey Ink's Night Night Moon stamp set on this, one of my all time favorite baby sets. I also used the Tiny Tags stamp set, coordinating die, and the Double Ended Banner die.
The twill is tea stained from my stash, paper from Making Memories and My Mind's Eye, trim from Prima, and chipboard from Maya Road.
Hope you all had a wonderful week.
