Sunken Gardens

During our trip to Tampa, FL last November for a friend's wedding, we visited the beautiful Sunken Gardens.

Details: On this layout I tried something new for me. I stitched like crazy. I used my SewEasy tool and mat to pierce the holes for the zig zag pattern. And then I stitched for hours.

Coral paper is Flamingo Lily by Core'dinations. Grey swirls are the B side of a paper called Text Me from the Midterm line by Bella Blvd. Chiplets are by SEI and are part of their On The Coast line. Mini letters are from the Line Twist line by My Mind's Eye.

House Hunting

Sorry the colors are wonky on these pictures! That's what happens when you are a bad blogger and are trying to catch up on a lot of stuff.

Back in February, when we were house hunting, my sister was with us when we put an offer in on a house our first time. These pictures are what she snapped after when she said "look excited". It was quite the roller coaster journey.

Details: Paper is by We R Memory Keepers. Blue strip is by Bazzill Basics. Letters and felt embellishments are by Pebbles.
