So, for those of you who are members of CMK, you have probably heard the news that Lisa is closing the site. I'm so sad to be losing my online "home." Not only do I love and adore the fellow DT girls, but i've enjoyed getting to know the members and getting inspired by all the amazing work over there. I guess this is a classic example of "all good things must come to an end."
Onto happier topics ;-) - Round 2 of our vacation pics:
I was so lucky that I got to meet my dear friend Sherry Steveson while I was on vacation. Sherry and I have been on two DTs together (Luxe and CMK), and we really got to know each other while on the CMK team. She is such an awesome person, and I just knew I would love her in real life, too, and I was right! We totally hit it off - I felt like i've known her for years! Unfortunately our visit was short and sweet, but i'm hoping we will get to connect again soon when she comes down my way!
My awesome parents:
Last, but not least, I have a layout to share that I did for a contest at A Million Memories (my other online home!). The requirements are that you include a vintage image and lace. I googled vintage beach images, and I found the photo that I printed out for my layout. It's pretty cool - if you look closely, you can see the people holding umbrellas on the beach to shield them from the sun :-) I used the lace to create a center for my flower. And, do you remember seeing that photo in my last set? Well, Sherry actually edited it for me and gave me six awesome versions! I was so inspired by how gorgeous she made my photo look, so I pulled it out and went to town :-)
PP is Pink Paislee and MM. Diecut circles are Collage Press. Letters are doodlebug and MM. Bling is Prima, and charms are MM. Journaling reads: Your beauty takes my breath away - you are gorgeous inside and out!
I can't believe this weekend is already over - it went too fast (don't they always??). We had another fun block party with our neighbors last night - definitely the highlight of my weekend! Hope you all had a great one, as well!
