I made these 2 LOs on New Year's Eve! I'm just now getting to posting them since I worked New Year's Day and then went to Duke Thursday for my dad's surgery and was in Raleigh until Saturday. I think I've finally settled back in here at home! Now onto my layouts! This past July I went to Raleigh to spend a few days with my dad, Tammy, Tyler, and Emily for a couple days and we went to Pullen Park in Raleigh while I was there. The LO above is pictures of Tyler and the picnic area at Pullen Park. The paper is Recollections Watermelons and Mambi (Me & My Big Ideas) Spring Kit. I chose these papers since it was a picnic. The green paper w/ the black dots reminded me of watermelon seeds! :) The ribbon is Best Occasions Tropical, the tag is K&Company Engraved Garden Journal Tags and I wrote the date: 7-5-13 Tammy, Tyler, and I went to Pullen Park so Tyler could play on the playground then we had a picnic before we went swimming. The tag is self-adhesive. The wooden chipboard pieces are Studio Calico Wood Veneer Die-Cut Wood Pieces. One has "LOVE THIS" printed on it and the other one has "GOOD TIMES" printed on it.The train rode around the park while we were eating. We didn't ride the train, because there was an extra charge to ride the train. The stickers "my" and "brother" are from my stash, I forgot what collection they are from. The vellum sentiment "Nothing is worth more than this day. Goethe" is from a vellum stack that Mrs. Gloria gave me (the cover is gone) and I attached it with ZOTS Medium Permanent Clear Adhesive dots on a scrap piece of Basic Grey 6x6 Life of the Party & again adhered with ZOTS. All the pics and Recollections Watermelons strip was adhered with ZOTS. I found them at Michaels and they're cheaper than Glue Dots and come in 3 different sizes- small, medium, & large. Thermoweb is the manufacturer and they even have a website (http://www.thermowebonline.com)! Sorry for the bad quality of pics, I'm still trying to figure out my camera and should have taken close-ups. Anyway, onto the next LO! I made sure I took close-ups with this one since the background is so busy!
The paper is Recollections Teal Butterflies. The "This is what counts" sticker is K&Company Emma Rose Word Embossed Stickers as is "SILLY" on the chipboard title. The chipboard "Today was a Day" is from Housecalls by: Scrappin' Madge (http://heartstringdesigns.blogspot.com/) September Hello Gorgeous kit and I added the "silly" sticker to finish out the title. I traced in the "O", both "D"s, and all 4 "A"s with a black gel pen, the name escapes me at 1:15 in the morning! LOL! The goggles stickers are Recollections Beach stickers and the flippers & bikini stickers are from another Recollections Beach collection.
As I mentioned before, my dad had surgery at Duke this past Thursday and here are 3 pictures of different things I saw around the facility.
