June is finally here! I am hoping that means long, sunny, warm days! I purchased Tim Holtz's Luminary die recently and couldn't wait to play with it! The By the Sea paper by Graphic 45 is fabulous for these projects! My daughter's birthday is coming up and I needed to make a card for her special day. I was inspired by the many cards I saw on Pinterest that used the By the Sea paper. Here is one I really loved-
My daughter lives on the island of North Haven just off of Rockland. I visited there recently on a beautiful sunny day! My last post had a couple of pictures of the view as you arrive by ferry. The lobster inside the card is a die from Memory Box.
I love Tim's Luminary die! I added the tea light to the top but you can really put anything inside this luminary. There are a lot of creative ideas on Pinterest! I saw this die used for Halloween and Christmas! Very cool!
I loved getting out all my nautical dies to use for this project! I still have space to add a sentiment if I want to use it to give to someone for a birthday! The top comes off and I can fill the box with yummies as a gift too!
I wanted to share a picture of the lobster roll we had recently at our new favorite restaurant, Bay Haven in Cornish, Maine. They are about an hour from where we live but worth the drive. Their lobster rolls are fabulous! My brother-in-law laughs when we take pictures of our food but this was a show stopper! Look at all the lobsta!
I had the Lobster Melt! Ton of lobster in that sandwich too! The bread is dipped in butter and Parmesan Cheese and then put on the griddle. It is fabulous!
The weather has finally improved here! I am looking forward to a vacation in a couple of weeks! I hope I get to spend more time in my craft room! Happy June to everyone!
