How is it that another weekend has come and gone?!?  They always go by way too fast, especially when you are having fun!  I'm still feeling pretty bummed I wasn't able to attend OnStage with all of my favorite Monday Montage friends, but thankfully they all took amazing pictures so I kind of felt like I was there! 

Even though I was sad to miss OnStage, I still got to have some fun with my family at Triple Play Water Park.  The weather has been cold and wet, so a fun get away was just what we needed! 

I seem to be in full holiday crafting mode, which is a good thing because as quickly as time is going by, Christmas will be here before we know it!

Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Whisper White, Pool Party
Ink ~ Pool Party
Stamp Sets ~ Every Good Wish
Other Supplies ~ Embossing Paste, Decorative Masks, Layering Circles Framelits, Silver Metallic Thread, Rhinestone Basic Jewels

Did everyone have a great weekend?  More importantly, did everyone get in some stamping time this weekend?!?!  I had an adventurous weekend of setting up a new neighborhood playground, cleaning out kids' rooms and chasing our silly cow back into the pasture!  But, thanks to a super windy and rainy weekend, the hubby and big boys being gone hunting and the youngest boy not feeling well, I got out of my outside chores and got in quite a bit of stamping time!  I am one happy stamper because I don't get near enough stamping time these days!

The new Stampin' Blends, which will soon be available to YOU, arrived this week, so I was itching to try them out!  They are AMAZING and did not disappoint! Now I need ALL of the stamp set that I can color :-)  I also played with the Embossing Paste and Decorative Masks for the first time.  I am in LOVE with these items...SO.MUCH.FUN!

 
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Cobbler, Old Olive, Whisper White, Wood Textures DSP
Ink ~ Memento, Cherry Cobbler, Stampin' Blends:  Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Bronze
Stamp Sets ~ At Home with You, Feather Together
Other Supplies ~ Embossing Paste, Decorative Masks, 2" Circle Punch, Linen Thread, At Home Framelits, Layered Leaves Embossing Folder
