Day trip to Maine!

Greeting my blogging friends! I don't have anything crafty today, my cousin came to visit from Australia. So, we decided to take him up north to the beautiful seacoast of Maine. Here are a few pictures from Kennebuckport.

Gorgeous views:

Of course, cannot leave Maine without having some seafood, how about some steamers and "chowda"!

Plus, the most famous lobster roll!!!

Finally, a beautiful sunset view.

Well that's it for me! I hope you enjoyed these beautiful pictures and have a wonderful day!

Softencil Tuesdays

Hello and happy Tuesday!   Hope you are ready for some Softpencil fun!  Trying to do something different this week, I'm using the Halloween Collection stickers.  You can check it HERE!  So, time to get inky.  To create the background, I used this extremely difficult technique...Smiley from millan.net using the Faber Castell gelato... just draw like so...

Then, I used a baby wipe to create the background, super difficult, right?!

And finally, I distressed the edges with the Faber Castell big brush pens in brown and added stickles.

That's for me, for more Softpencil creations... please visit my fellow DT ladies' blog or the Softpencil FB page, click HERE!

I finally have a day off today, I spent the day hanging out with my good friend and my dear hubby, very relaxing!   We had an amazing lunch and dinner, and hubby even took me for a little bit of shopping, hehe!  I decided to make something extremely simple!  Love the new Memory Box antique lamp post and walking cat die cut.  Yep, that cat looks like my sweet Stewie.  Love creating the sunset background using the Faber Castell gelatos, and finished the card with a sweet sentiment.
