About Me

My photo
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Beach Thoughts

Friends with Flair Friday!!!

Although I LOVE living in Colorado, I really do miss the beaches in California.  When I saw this stamp by Phyllis Harris...I HAD to have it.  When I look at this image, I can still remember the feel of the sand in my toes, the cool wind blowing, and the sound of the waves crashing onto the shore.

So what I have done here I have taken two images and combined them perfectly together using the masking technique.  The lighthouse comes from the Stamp of the Week Club and the other image is, of course, Phyllis Harris.  And how ironic that the phrase blends PERFECTLY to the lighthouse beam.

Enjoy!
