and vintage cloth napkins for each place setting.

Its been so long

Its been forever since I've posted last. 
So much has been going on in my personal life. 
Was out of state working a few times this summer. So time just flying by.

Not all good things happened though. We had to put our little doggy down.
Its been a difficult time adjusting to her being gone. 

I do want to take this time to share a little bit of Summer time art work before its over.
So here goes...
Recently came out with the coolest stamp set Mystical Mermaids.
 Full of  summer time fun.
I made this underwater theme altered cigar box.

and a cute set of tags that fit inside a holder

Keeping with the summer theme is a Shire from 
Don't you just Love that pirate chest?? 

Oh just one more thing. I've been planning a Baby shower for my DIL.
YEP that's right .There will be a new little one in the family.
So excited to be a Grandmommy once more!!!

Just Released the cutest set of Spring Time stamps called Bee Happy
and with the long winter I think just about everyone is ready for some sunshine!!

Theses are a couple of projects I played with for the New Release.
