Hi Sweetie Peas! Hope you all had a very wonderful weekend. I am back from my weekend scrapbooking retreat at the beach, and I must say that we had a fabulous time. It is so good to get away with the girls. I haven’t laughed that hard in I don’t know how long, and………I even got a bit of scrapping done. :)
I have photos to share from the weekend, but first, it’s time to share my Monday project for Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. I’ve been playing with the new Bats Clear Stamps Set and Die again. I think we should go ahead and declare 2012 the Halloween of the bat as I seem to have gone completely batty this year. Let’s just make it official and get it over with, shall we?
I had leftover kraft envelopes from my Maya Road project last week, which became the inspiration for this little notecard. Covered some manila tags with inks and bits of torn dictionary pages and stamped lots of tiny bats from the Clearly Beautiful the Four Seasons stamp set for a spooky backdrop. Tucked the tags into the envelope and added one large die cut bat to the outside. Lots of happy polka dots and a sentiment strip finish things off.
And now for a few photos of the beach retreat.
The Trinity Center is only steps away from the ocean, and yet it feels like you’re in the mountains with the rustic buildings and all the wonderful trees. It really is the best of both worlds. So serene and so peaceful.
It was very humid and quite rainy while we were there, so humid in fact that I had a hard time keeping my camera lens from fogging up. But I did still manage to do a little rocking on the back deck and got in one nice walk along the beach.
Mostly, though, we spent our time in here…..
having a great time.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, too!
