For the love of Scallops!

When it comes to stamping I have lots of favorite things like polka dot and striped paper, flowers, and scallops! I love scalloped edges! I have way to many scallop border punches, but they are all a little different. I love this large punch from EK success. The paper is from SEI! I love to get SEI paper packs because I know for all the paper inside will work well together. I hope you like my use of scallops!

Supplies: PTI bday inside & out, Pti leaf set, SEI paper, SU ink, ribbon and CS, Marvy scallop punch.

Look what I found at the Iowa State Fair!

Okay, so we went to the Iowa State Fair yesterday and saw the biggest Bull and Boar, some crazy looking chickens, a tiny (full grown) horse, etc. And as I was looking for a non-fountain soda in the "Art" building I checked out a vendor selling stamp supplies and found this beauty from Hero Arts. Love it! My goodness, I can find stamps any where!

Supplies: Hero Arts Daisy, PTI Thanks inside and out, SU craft reinkers, SU blender pen, and Color Box brown ink, Scor Pal, SU Kraft CS.

Another Chicago photo!

My awesome friend, Kriss took me to the Kid Rock & Bon Jovi concert when we were in Chicago. It was awesome! I thought it was terribly exciting just to be in the Bears stadium. It is huge and I love NFL football and have only been to one NFL game in my life. (Close does count in this case :-) But back to the concert, Robert (Kriss's brother) hired a limo to take us downtown to the concert. We had an awesome time!!!

Now to some stamping, just a quick summer card to share. I love blue and yellow and this flower set from papertrey.
Supplies: Beautiful Blooms II PTI, Sentiment from Hero Arts, SU ink and CS- Daffodil Delight and Marina Mist, Colorbox white, Stickles pearl-yellow, and ribbon SU, Scallop Die from SU.

CHA was amazing!

I went to CHA in Chicago with my friend Kriss last weekend. It was so amazing! Meeting all the Papertrey gals and especially Dawn McVey was so cool! I will share the cards I made at the PTI tables with you soon. I just wanted to jump on quick and share these pics.
