Happy Birthday Adrianne!

I made a birthday card (see below) for my sister, Adrianne's birthday on Tuesday.  Here is a picture of her when she was 2 years old.  We lived in Saco on Wildwood Drive and she was adorable!  I used one of my Tilda stamps which reminds of Adrianne. 

This is called center step card (I think).  I put a door on the back with a swag of flowers and Tilda sitting with her Happy Birthday sign.  Flowers are from SU Mixed Bunch.  I love this set!!  The fence is MS border punch and the grass is a die from Die-namics.  The purple dragonfly is from eyelet outlet.  Tilda was colored with copic markers and the SU punch used for the happy birthday sign. Tilda is sitting on sizzix's brick embossing folder.  Gonna put this is in the mail tomorrow so Adrianne will hopefully get it for her birthday on the 23rd.  Happy Birthday Adrianne!!!  See you soon for your gift!! Love you!

Day Trip

Today in Maine was so  hot and steamy that my husband and I decided to head downeast for a breeze somewhere!!  We went to Five Islands for their yummy lobster rolls and a beautiful view.  We took our dog,
Gretel, who enjoyed a little ice cream on the trip.  The temperature read from our car 83 at Five Islands which was a lot better than the 95 it read when we got home in Falmouth.

We met some people from Salt Lake City and Los Angeles who are here for the month of July.  They love it here in Maine and I think they told me that they have been coming to Maine for 3 years now.  Gretel was a big hit with them because they missed their 2 dogs which are home.  On the way back home, we stopped at Reid State Park.  I have never been to Reid State Park and wanted to just drive around and see the park before it closed. It is a beautiful park and will have to come back another day to spend the day there. Check out the pictures below of the park.

Beautiful beach
Let's picnic!
When we were going thru Yarmouth and Cumberland, we were behind this guy on his bike.  I think he was headed for the parade in Yarmouth. The Yarmouth Clam Festival starts tonight with a big parade and he was going to participate I'm sure.  It is going to be another hot one tomorrow--So keep cool!!

Summer Fun!

Dew Drop Inn
Summer Fun at Pequawket Lake again this summer!!  My friend, Cindy and her husband, have a beautiful camp on the lake which we went to this past weekend. We had so much fun in the lake, on the lake,  and beside the lake. Cindy's grandson was up and he was a little doll!  I think he would be happier as a fish! The lake was a busier than I have seen in years past, I think, because it was the 4th of July weekend and everyone was enjoying the beautiful weather we had last week!

Preparing to snorkel!
Aaron the fish!
Cindy is a great cook!  Check out the food display--especially the ribs!  The meat just fell off the ribs! Sooooo Good!!!  Great company and great food!  Another fun year with the Esty's!! Thanks again!

She smoked them!

20th Anniversary

Today is my sister's 20th Wedding Anniversary!  I can't believe it has been 20 years!  We are headed to Longhorn Steakhouse to celebrate with Chris and Tom!!  Happy Anniversary to such a wonderful couple!!

I made a fun fold card with memory box's butterfly, Tim Holtz clock die and Dee's Distinctively leaves. The paper is Graphic 45 and the flower is from Prima. I added some pink pearls and a "Little Whimsies" blue heart. Check out the inside below-

Sizzix, MS corner punch and SU punch to finish the inside of the card.  Happy to report that I used my new Envelope Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers for the envelope.  So easy to use, I just love it!!!
