Hello, all! As has become a tradition for me on most Tuesdays, I am linking up today with Elizabeth's T on Tuesday post. This week in my photo I have the sports drink Gatorade standing in for tea. My son is generously sharing his drink with a dinosaur at the park. :) Now that Labor Day has passed and summer is over, I'm having fun looking back on summer photos like this one.
Besides visiting lots of parks and other local destinations over the summer, my family also took a road trip to northern Minnesota. (Many scrapbook pages about this trip will be showing up on my blog soon...stay tuned). On the way home, we stopped at a BIG scrapbooking store in Pine City. (The store is pictured below; isn't it cute?) There I found some Crate Paper "Pretty Party" papers that I had been wanting for a long time. Yay!
Today I want to share a "just for fun" project with you. It's a card that I made with my new "Pretty Party" supplies. I recently realized that most of the projects I display on my blog are for contests/challenges, and I've decided that I should make a point of also showing "just for fun" projects, at least once per month. The "fun" of paper crafting is the most important aspect of the hobby for me, and I want to make sure I don't lose sight of that.
|Supplies: cardstock from Neenah Paper; all designer paper from Crate; thread from DMC; Distress Stain from Ranger.|
I have also decided that, from this point forth, I will mention why each project that I post is "green." (Just as I want to emphasize the fun side of papercrafting, I also want to continue to emphasize the eco-friendly side of my crafting.) The card above is green because: I used an older item (the embroidery thread, left over from the days when I was a cross stitch fiend) from my stash. Waste not, want not.
I hope that September is off to a good start for all of you. I'm looking forward to getting around to visit lots of blogs today. Take care!
