Hellooooo Sleeping In!
I have thoroughly enjoyed my summer so far, how about you? We've been blessed with semi decent beach weather so other than summer school, we've been hanging out at in lovely Ventura. The kids have been boogie boarding, shoveling sand in ever orifice they have on their bodies, and having a grand time hanging out with their buddies.
With all this summer fun I haven't had time to craft too much, however with the new summer set from MTE I've managed to add some accents to already finished scrapbook pages that these stamps scream to adorn.
I initially tried to do emboss my stamp with the embossing powders I have but it kept attaching to the watermark sunshine so I pulled one of my fave products out, used a needle to trace over my Hello Summer stamp. I let it dry over night then spellbinded it.
|Here's the great little set! It's only 2.95! Can you believe that?!|
I also used my little set in my Smash book from my DC trip, I'm slowly adding my contents, Cute huh?
We celebrated a foggy July 4th at our local highschool firework show but we did some pre-show desserts. S'MORES, but with a little twist I had a taste for coconut. I toasted some (which if you've ever done this you now your house smells delicious), and used both the raw and the toasted on my S'more. It was heavenly..and I made extra's and threw them in the toaster oven for a couple of minutes for a little snack:) (For those out of towners from foreign lands a S'more is a roasted marshmallow over a square of milk chocolate, sandwiched between to graham crackers. If you do it right your chocolate melts, the marshmallow covers it = heaven)
Remember the challenge is still going on....go to this post and see the rules. Come on it's fun and you'll make new friends:)
