spreading some (much needed) sunshine...

with my most recent addition to the Garden at 2peas... copyright 2peasinabucket. Supplies: Echo Park Playground Collection+ American Crafts grey Thickers + Doodlebug Brads + Fiskars Fingertip Craft Knife + Bumpy Road Border Punch + JBS Chewing Gum Paint + Collage Press Hometown Summer Collection

dug out these old photos from a playground visit looooooooooong ago...we used to visit there so much, i could probably have told you when a new scratch ended up on the slide, lol. those days are gone, but i still love the pics...in fact, i bet if we wandered down there again, she'd hop right on the slide like she was still 7. :)

that Fiskars Fngertip Knife is the best i've used...it fits just right in your hand and made hand-cutting the centers out of those 'polaroids' on the Echo Park paper a breeze. i chose the Bumpy Road Border Punch since it looked like the blue scallop that was already on that paper.

just a head's up...TOMORROW IS THE LAST DAY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE $30/FREE SHIPPING DEAL AT 2PEAS!!! they don't offer this very often...and it is the perfect reason to stock up in time for National Scrapbook Day next week!! sooooo many new products available...i know i keep adding things to my cart as well. }:)

side note: thanks to everyone for their kind thoughts/prayers for the family of our dear friends who suffered a tragic loss this week. to say it has been rough would be an understatement...Mike has lost one of his closest friends, and we are all trying to find comfort in knowing what an impact Martin had on us. it was just a week ago today that we gathered for an impromptu bbq & shared lots of laughs...words can't express how much he will be missed. i just wanted to say how much i appreciate people reaching out to me with words of comfort...i'm blessed to have you.
