Enjoying the Great Outdoors

I haven't been posting any creations lately since we are on vacation in Mammoth Lakes, CA. We have been settling into a new house and enjoying hikes and the beauty of the area. I am going through a bit of withdraw in the evenings not being able to stamp or obsess about paper but our days have been busy and so much fun. Tomorrow we will tackle Cathedral Lake in  Yosemite. Here are some pictures of the kids enjoying the great outdoors.

Beau Chateau Thank You

I have been waiting for a while for the Beau Chateau designer series paper for 2011-2012 and was so excited when it arrived yesterday on the big brown truck! I needed a thank you card and of course couldn't wait to dig into this pack. I created this card for my very best friend who gave me some amazing gifts for my birthday. BUT the most amazing gift is her friendship. She is an amazing person and I believe I am a better person because of her influence. Whenever I hear the song "For Good" from Wicked I think of our friendship. (click on the link and listen) I am truly blessed to have her in my life.

So anywhoo, I received this paper as well as a few other goodies that I ordered, but one of the most exciting is the Simply Scrappin' Kit - Tea Time. I normally don't order Scrappin' Kits but this one caught my eye right away and it is so beautiful. The great thing about the kits is that they come with everything you need to create scrapbook pages or many sets of coordinated cards/projects ( DSP, card stock, stickers, borders etc). You will see some shortly from this beautiful Tea Time set.

Stamps - Four Frames, Silouette Sentiments, Elements of Style
Ink - Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Soft Sable
Paper - Beau Chateau DSP, marina mist, crumb cake, whisper white card stock
Accessories - very vanilla seam binding, decorative label punch, oval die, dimensionals, vintage trinkets, Beau Chateau side notes
