Hello, I am a little late in posting, this was a busy weekend. We got our daughter and son in law all packed into their Uhaul and said goodbye to them on Saturday, they are heading to Connecticut, she will be attending Yale to get her Doctorate in Theology. It was so hard to see her go knowing she will be so far away and we probably will only be seeing her once a year for a few years, but thankfully we can call and text at anytime and I am thankful for that. She is pretty close they will be arriving today and hopefully can move straight into their apartment.
Just after we got back from our trip to Michigan is when my stamp group had our week of challenges and one of them was to make a card that reminds you of the park.... Well since I had just went to 3 different parks in Michigan it wasn't too hard to decide on what theme I was going with :)
I put a touch of clear glitter pen on the water and light in the lighthouse
Art Impressions-- Windows to the world M-3175 stamp colored w/pencils
Spellbinders -- Labels One die
Poppystamps -- Tailored stitches border die
BasicGrey -- Picadilly paper and scraps
Paper Studio -- enamel dots
Wink of Stella -- Clear glitter on the water and light
Because we spent so much time at the fort and eating lunch after before getting on the road we only managed to make it down to the bottom of Michigan to a beautiful town called Saugatuck. It has a little harbor that we ate a dinner at and then headed over to Oval Beach which is on Lake Michigan.
They had stairs to get down to the beach, you park on a cliff and we stayed on the beach until the sun started setting and I needed to get back up to the car to get my camera and I started off by taking some shots of the flowers that were growing along the top.
Now to the sunset. I hope I didn't over due but it just amazes me how much the sky changes during a sunset and there was just enough clouds to make it really cool!
I love this one of my hubby with the glow of the sunset on him :)
The boat in the above picture was also in the harbor when we were eating, they came almost as far as we were and turned around and headed back.
My hubby said we could head back to the hotel and I told him we could stay a little while longer and we were glad we did cause all of a sudden all kinds of reds started popping up in the sky.
The top one I zoomed in on it and this bottom one is zoomed back out.
As I am writing this my daughter has texted to let me know that they are in their apartment now and the movers they hired actually came on time and have it all done for them, they rented this house without even looking at it just what they could see on line and she is happy to report that it is just what they wanted :)
Hope your week is off to a good start too!!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by, I know how busy the summer time can be.
I am still playing catch up on visiting blogs :)
