A wonderful visit

With each move, I am reminded more and more, how lucky we are to have such dear friends. Our visit to Arkansas last week was even better than I had hoped. We did a lot of catching up and spending time with our friends. The time went by way too quickly (except the 11 hour drive each way) LOL One of the days we stopped in a Party City after lunch to pick up a few happy birthday plates to celebrate all the girls' birthdays.


While we were there I found these fake mustaches for a dollar. It was one of the best dollars I have ever spent. The kids had such a great time with them. Using them for everything from their intended purpose...






To sideburns and a unibrow and inanimate objects...






It was so hot and humid that the girls spent some time in a small pool in the backyard.

And there was even some downtime to enjoy just being together.

I look forward to seeing them again soon.
I have been busy doing my assignments but I haven't had time to always share them with you. So I thought I would share a project with you. I created this layout for Emma's Paperie blog a couple of weeks ago. We were asked to do a project using some of the wonderful punches Cindy has in the store.


I used one of the Martha Steward butterfly punches on some fun foam that the girls had in their craft box to create the backs of the butterflies. I then punched a second butterfly out of pattern paper and slightly trimmed the edges. The bottom edge of the mat was also punched.

I used a circle punch to create the scallop at the top of the photo.

Thank you for stopping by!!! Have a wonderful week everyone!

Hey there, Lisa! Thanks for visiting my blog! It was nice to hear from you! Looks like you guys had a great time on your trip. Those photos with the press-on mustaches are hilarious. Does sound like the best one dollar purchase ever.
Love your beautiful page with all the punched details. The butterfly punched from fun foam and layered with paper is a great idea. Love that look. Love the scalloped detail and the punched edge, too. So fun all the punches that are available these days.
