Lovin' the Core!

Oh my!!!  I'm just so thrilled to be a part of this amazing team!  Core'dinations Cardstock is so much fun!!!
Here's one of my monthly layouts that I did. It was so much fun making the flowers.  I just tore the paper in circle shapes, using 2 shades of cardstock. I did the same for the leaves.  I used my paper trimmer and scored lines on the cream colored cardstock.  Last of all I used my cuttlebug embossing folders (the little ones) and then lightly sanded the image onto the background cardstock.

Supplies: Core'dinations (Core Essentials, Black Magic, Vintage), Cuttlebug embossing folder & alphabet die, buttons, border punch (Fiskars), oval punch (Marvy), label punch (Stampin' Up), corner rounded punch (EK Success)

So my hubby & I went away this past weekend for our 11th Anniversary.  We had such a relaxing time and thoroughly enjoyed the hot springs.  I mentioned to him that my skin felt softer because of it - and no doubt! We were in those pools all the time!!

Here's a picture of us by Lake Harrison.  We had a fabulous room and wonderful view of the lake and resort. It was just wonderful. (although I can't say I like my squinty eyes - it was cloudy & sunny - Yeah! That's my excuse!)

Anyways, that's it for now.  Off to work on some upcoming classes. Have a great night!
