true strength is delicate

Some new and old Papertrey Ink stamps. Just playing around. Mostly avoiding the deadlines that are looming in front of me! :) The edges were all inked with Colorbox Chalk ink in Creamy Brown. It is my favorite distressing ink. In a few days, I will show you my new (but yet its old) favorite tool that I use to edge everything. The kraft cardstock was scored with the Scor Pal and the die cuts are Blossom from Spellbinders.

DH is home this week, working on building our new deck. Its fantastic, but a lot of work! So, life has been a little busy around here!!
We are heading to a graduation party this weekend and will be staying in a waterpark hotel. DS is super excited! You should have seen how big his eyes got when we told him where we were staying. :) Now that he is officially potty trained, we are looking forward to a bit more traveling freedom. Hopefully I will have a bunch of photos to share next week, with as busy as we are!
thanks so very much for stopping by!! :)
