California here we come!

Good Saturday Morning!

Today we are leaving Vegas and heading to Anaheim. On our way we will stop at the Calico Ghost Town. Chloe loves that place...lol. I'm hoping it's not as hot as last year...omg...I about died from the heat....haha!

We've got another Our Creative Corner Challenge for you today! It's all about colour ;) Ruby Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Choc Chip(optional). I've decided to use my Unity set called Gratitude=Joy.


How about another sneak peek of a Little Paper Shop set?

This one is called Beautiful Things. Isn't the verse in this set wonderful? It's a two step stamping set...love those kind for making backgrounds.

I've used Riding Hood Red with Groovy Guava for this card, another fave colour combo of mine.

Thanks for stopping by!

LOVE your cards, as usual! Calico, huh? If you ever want to see a great ghost town, take your family to Bodie [on the other side of Yosemite area]. What a fun & educational trip!

Hey Dawn,

I live in Anaheim, stop by and we can stamp together....or more like you can teach me a few tricks. he he he

I hope your vacation is going well. I'm assuming your doing the Disneyland thing at Anaheim. You have to hit Toy Story Mania if you do. You won't be disappointed. It has a long line, but sooooo worth it. Such a fun ride.

Sorry for the rambling. Have a good day.
