This says it perfectly!

Not that I am trying to toot my own horn, but I saw this stamp online today and thought it was perfect!

Inside Out




August's theme for my Card Front Swap on my Fav MB is "Inside Out". We were to create a card front with a matching insert. Here is mine. I used the new Stampin' Up set called "Elements of Style". I stamped it first in Versamark, then used a sparkly embossing powder, then heated it with my SU heat tool. Afterwards I cut the piece into 3 panels. Then I matted it and matted it again. I added some ribbon, then the sentiment (also from Elements of Style) punched out with the oval punch and matted with the scallop oval.
The inside I used the same Elements Of Style stamped in Versamark. It give it a nice subtle print, not too over powering.

Gone Fishing!







Ah Summer....my daughter is out of school, and I have off for the summer, good times! David and I went and got our fishing licenses the other day. We took the kids fishing, first in Oaks, and then a little park in Plymouth meeting. Our daughter caught her first Bass in Plymouth Meeting! (see the first picture) Our son caught his very first fish in Oaks! (see the second picture. That is his "lucky fishing hat" I believe it is the ship his great grandfather was stationed on while in the Navy) On Sunday (Father's Day) we took the kids to Green Lane Park. I used to go there all the time when I was a kid. Although we did get lots of bites, we didn't catch anything, but I did get these great pictures of the kids (see third and fourth pictures). We ended up going back to Plymouth Meeting, where we had fished the day before (and where she caught the Bass). Cheyenne caught 9 fish! Cameron caught 2, and David and I each caught one. We had fun though, and that is what is important!
