Am I attending a tropical party? No.
Am I traveling somewhere tropical? No.
Do I wish I were? Yes!! ;-)
Life has been crazy around here (with a capital C)! Oh, how I'm looking forward to next week - a "normal" week!
Mother's Day projects, Mother's Day, Etsy, housewife/mothering stuff, sick kids, soccer games, weeding flowerbeds, computer problems, and more. Did I mention that I'm holding a garage sale this weekend with family?? Yup. Those of you who have done it, KNOW all the time that involves! lol ;-)
Finding time to create during all this is difficult, KWIM? I'm soooo glad to be here to share with you today! :-D
Here's something I *finally* finished, using new product from the Summer Mini Catalog! :) Using the new stamp set, "Tropical Party"....
Oh, and NEW Designer Paper, "Island Oasis", and NEW "Square Lattice" Embossing Folder! :)
I also used "Full of Life" for the sentiment, and the set "Paradise" for the leaves behind coconut drink...(both in Idea Book & Catalog), and some fun embellishments too! :)
See the texture on the coconut? That's crystal effects applied, then let dry a bit, then dragging the tip across the surface to make markings. LOVE it! :)
Thanks so much for hanging in there...hopefully I didn't lose all my readers! lol
