Aunt Millie's Birthday


I had been using Pic Monkey to edit my cards and add my watermark.  The last time I used it was Sept. 7th and I didn't have any problems at all.  When I tried today, it let me add the watermark, but wouldn't let me save it without a subscription.  I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if they changed their policy.  REALLY disappointed, but I'll get over it and have my daughter help me next time she is home!

I made this card for my hubby's aunts birthday.  I used Splitcoaststampers tutorial to create the circle easel card...this is my 1st easel card and I love how it turned out!  The image I used is called Silhouette Butterfly from Bugaboo Stamps.  I imported it into Silhouette Studio to print and cut out.  I added star dust stickles to some of the flowers and 3 orange gems from Hobby Lobby.  I used SB large scalloped and circle dies and Sizzix #9 flourish die.  The sentiment I created on my Silhouette Mint (AWESOME investment) and spiced marmalade distress ink.

Cruise Pics

We are back from our fabulous cruise!  We were suppose to be going to the Eastern Caribbean, but because of hurricane Maria we went to the Western Caribbean.  Our ports were Ocho Rios Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Roatan Honduras, and Cozumel.  This was our 1st time cruising and we loved it!  I've made a collage of our trip...from top to bottom

Leaving Port of Miami, hubby and I dressed for our nephews wedding, Bride and Groom, return scene to Miami, sunset at sea, beach at Grand Cayman, our Bon Voyage pic, monkey la la drink (SO YUMMY), port at Roatan Honduras.

We went on a zip line tour and climbed Dunn Falls in Jamaica, Royal Palms beach and jet skis on Grand Cayman, ocean horseback riding and private beach in Roatan, shopping and wedding in Cozumel.
