The little house and the purple grapes

Just wanted to share a couple projects today, no particular theme. 

I created this little card with lots of layers and add-ons to celebrate a new address or to send congrats on a new home.  The card base is Core'dinations, it has the embossed dots in it already.  I cut the card base in a simple house shape.  A couple layers of patterned paper with a punched edge gave me a cute roof and the grass is another piece of Core'dinations cardstock that already has that embossed design in it. I just freehand cut a grass look. 

This photo lets you get a better look at the card base and that great Core Impressions cardstock by Core'dinations.

Now for a layout.  Last fall I went on a little driving tour of an area where there are a lot of vineyards. I so enjoyed the drive and the look of the vineyards as fall is approaching. Can't wait to do that again. I created a very simple layout to remember some of my favorite photos.  This photos are actually 3 4"x6" photos.  In the two of the photos I just created a collage of two photos each so when I printed out the 4" x 6" photos, they really contained two images.  The title is printed from the computer on the white cardstock. 

Remember how much fun we were having with bubbles? Here is another example.

On a recent zoo trip, I caught this scene. Who do you think is directing who!?

Our youngest grandson was off on an "adventure" as he put it!!!

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
