Fun in the Sun!!

Happy Hump Day!  The week is almost over!  Instead of posting a project today I thought I would share a few of my vacation pictures with you.  I went to my parents cottage with my oldest dog and spent a week doing nothing but catching up on some sleep and catching a few pickerel, yummy!  Enjoy!

My dad and I went out fishing the first night and caught about 14 fish but kept 5!!

This is Riley who is now in her 14th year!!

Me, doing the doggy paddle!!

My dad cooling off the lazy way!

This is my parents dog Abby who is picking or should I say eating blueberries!

My mom just taking it all in!

Thanks for stopping by!

Altered Frame

Happy Friday!!  I have to say this week just flew right by.  God I love those weeks.  I have for you today an altered picture frame that I created for a swap that was held over on the Cricut message board.  I have not received mine yet but will post pictures when I do.  I can't wait I have never received an altered project from someone before.

I used a Michaels picture frame, Lindy's Stamp Gang products from the sprays, to the embossing powders and stains.  Tim Holtz Bird Cage Die, Crackle Medium, Recollection Embellishments, Brads, Rub Ons, Distress Ink, Bronze Pearls and last but not least Ribbon.

I have so happy with the way it turned and I am thankful that Robin loved it.

I wish you all a great weekend!
