I realized the other day that I hadn't used any of my older supplies (forgotten treasures) in awhile so I added some of these chipboard pieces to my card, they have been painted. Yellow flower center and the swirls (leaves).
I saw the glitter tulle at Walmart in the Halloween supplies and wondered if I could use it on my card in some way. I tried using my Spellbinders dies to cut flowers but it couldn't quite do it, so I went with the Tim Holtz tattered florals steel dies and it worked I was able to cut them all in one pass. They didn't quite look like flowers when I layered them and I had one white flower left from another project so I used that and then I was looking around for a smaller center and that is when I came across the chipboard pieces I haven't used in some time, so I painted it yellow and added some pen work to it. The brad was also colored with markers.
I need some more ideas of what I can do with this tulle because I don't know how I think of it in flowers, I may have to use it for home decor. If you are thinking of purchasing some I will let you know that the glitter comes off very easily and was over everything on my desk and myself by the time I was finished.

On to our Yellowstone part of the trip:
We had a bit of a drive to Yellowstone so to break it up we decided to stop by Devil's Tower, my hubby said we had to because it was in Close Encounters, yep my hubby is a Sci Fi fan :)
First Stop in Yellowstone was the Sulphur springs, oh my the smell was just awful, this one was just bubbling all over
This was named Dragon's mouth spring, and as you were walking up the sound was just like on a dragon movie, it was the way the water was being pushed out of the hole here, very cool
Gorgeous waterfall you walked along it until you got to this point where you could see it head on, I can't tell you how many pictures I took here but I thought this one showed how huge and amazing it is.
Old Faithful just starting
Here it is a little higher, all the other shots I have are not centered and not good, I just snapped pictures as I watched it so I didn't get them lined up well.
That evening we stayed in Jackson Hole and all around town were these Antlers in shapes of things, this is the only picture I got because we were at a stop light. I never did ask if they were real antlers, but I thought it was cool, something you don't see everyday :)
Next time will be the Grand Tetons.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your comments to let me know you did,
