I am trying to get my sister to come over and see me...SOOOO I made her a two page layout to entice her to my house. She has to come visit me to get it. Do you think it will work?

I used the new Sasparilla Level 2 paper pack with coordinating cardstock...twilight, barn red, desert sand and black. The title is done with the "E" sized Rustic Alphabet. I stamped them and then cut them out. I distressed the cardstock with black chalk ink and added black accessories. I finally used the clear buttons I have and I really like them. I punched a 3/4 inch circle and ran those through my Xyron and then attached them to the buttons. Of course, I used the wonderful waxy flax. I would never thread buttons without that wonderful product.

I stamped on the twill with black ink. I used the solo alphabets and choose words that fit the theme. I used solo c, solo l and solo m. These stamp sets are great for adding a variety of stamped images or words to your layouts and cards.

Connie....when are you coming? LOL!

Jeanne, since you asked I took a picture of the deck we just finished. Now, we are tearing up the deck right outside our back door. I hope this one is done by the 4th of July. We'll see!

I took this picture from the deep end of the pool. We just placed our chairs and tables on this side, so we could get everything off the old deck to tear it up, so it isn't the nicest set-up right now. I spend most of my time in the white lounge chairs. LOL!

Happy Stamping!

Heck, I'd come visit you for those layouts! Love the colors!!

I'd come visit you to see your gorgeous new deck in person and to take a dip in that pool!

I'd come visit you just to give you a huge hug in person for all the sharing you do!
