Right? Right. Moving on.
We kicked major booty at the regional and state competitions, and qualified for Nationals. We went to Washington, D.C. and New York City, and it was awesome. All the pictures and memorabilia have been sitting in bags in my craft drawer waiting for something to happen to them. And then something did! That something was the Karen Foster Design Destination New York Stickers. I love simple layouts using cardstock with a few embellishments, and the stickers provided the pizazz to make my plain cardstock layouts stand out. I also used cardboard, paint, the Subway Thickers (how apt!) and photos of my friends and me our senior year. It took me on an armchair vacation...which is probably the extent of my travels this year (anyone else out there like that?).Reliving one vacation made me want to do it again. So, having lived in Washington nearly all of my life, my family has quite a stash of photos of us all around the state. I got to finally put some of the pictures to good use (thanks, Mom and Dad's photo drawer). The paper and stickers are both from Stamping Stations. I like that the paper and the stickers are a little different that usually destination/vacation product you see a lot. Since we live in a state that has so much natural beauty, the copper scalloped border stickers (found in the ribbon section at PP), and some twine added to the over-all "Washington-ness."I found a picture of my dad and me when I was about 7 or 8, and made him a little personalized father's day card. Take that, Hallmark! I also made two cards with the rest of the Washington paper: a "welcome home" card and a "missing you" card. I hope you get the chance to stop in and pick up a little something-something to scrap photos of your latest vacation.
Is anyone going someplace great this summer? Leave a comment letting us know so we who stay in Pullman can live vicariously through you. :-)
