Weekend in Phoenix



We spent 4 lovely days with our daughter in Phoenix. Jen is there getting her PhD. We did not really do much other than lots of walking! Just love hanging out with her!

Imaginisce October Sketch Challenge.

Think that just because your kids are older that you cannot carry on your favorite traditions? WRONG! My wonderful  22 year old went along without complaint to the pumpkin patch to pick out this year's pumpkin. He does it because he knows it makes me happy and I love him for that!!

I ran out and bought Imaginisce Apple Cider papers to complete this layout and used the sketch on their blog.

I have been playing along with the Thinking Inking challenges at 2 peas. Here is a card I made with a new technique of clear embossing flowers I made.
