just waving hi.




So, I'm an impatient grasshopper.

I took a bunch of pictures last night and when I was editing, I didn't like any of them.  Today is a typical gloomy Seattle morning {Yay for the weather change, it was just too hot!} and I don't have any natural sunlight so I went outside.  Think of it as rustic photography.

cardstock:  pti  paper:  basic grey/mint julip  stamps:  neat & tangled/sailmates  ink:  memento tuxedo,  copics boo/b05  other:  stampin' up banner framelits, project life/midnight collection.

photo retaken:


I love the new Neat & Tangled 



I adore the nautical theme and Danielle's thick line drawings...it makes it easy to paper piece and to color.

I'm linking up to:



I was inspired by the photo:

beach theme

  8. This made me laugh because I had the same problem today. I really wanted to link a card but the sun was already in the wrong place. Took photos anyway and once I had posted it I just knew they weren't right. So rushed around trying to find a different spot so could update the blog. Should have just done it tomorrow morning....if only I had the patience!!
