catching up with some hexagons!

Just here to catch you up with a few TSOL projects I haven't yet posted . . . .

This first is a flip-it card, (using a Sizzix die) which are so fun to make, but really difficult to photograph! I found this great website though, called PicMonkey, and I highly recommend you go play! You can make collages, and banners for your Facebook page, and it was REALLY quick and easy to drop these two photos into one image. Anyhooo. . . here it is!

 Stephanie released a set of smiley faces last month, and they are PERFECTION to add a smile to anything and everything! Candy really SHOULD be smiling, shouldn't it!? (cardstock is Bazzill Card Shoppe)

 And the new hexagons2love set. . . .sheer bliss! This set is a BLAST. Hexagons are so trendy and hip right now, and they are quite possibly the perfect shape. . .it can function as a circle, but it has straight edges, which makes cutting SO much easier! (Discount Cardstock's soon to be retiring Cyclamen Cascata Cardstock. . .my favorite pink color EVER.) 

This one is my favorite though.  . . .I know, I cannot get away from green and aqua, (or pink and aqua. . .or pink and green, ..  .or pink and green and aqua!) I used a regular old hole punch to cut out the center of my hexagons, and popped them up on foam tape. Easy peasy, and super cute. (more Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock)

In a few days, we are dashing off to the Hamptons! (I love saying that. . .it makes us sound VERY fa-fa-fa-fa!) My brother in law is getting married out there, so my little guys will be donning their new seersucker suits, and (hopefully) walking down the aisle, on the beach, as co-ring bearers! (And my hubby is performing the ceremony!) After the wedding, we are going to spend a few days in New York City. We'll go to the Empire State Building -Bryce has wanted to go, ever since he got the Empire State Building in Legos! We're also going to see the Space Shuttle Enterprise, at the Intrepid. Add in FAO Schwarz, Grand Central Station, and Central Park, and I think our two days in the city will be PACKED! 

I'll try to schedule some posts while I am away, but we all know that might not happen! Summer and my little guys take priority right now!  But I AM going to have a sweet summer giveaway, sponsored by Bazzill coming up soon, so don't be a stranger!  And while I'm thinking of it, Bazzill is going to be doing giveaways on their Facebook page, and sharing sneak peeks of their new products, during every hour of CHA, starting on Tuesday! So be sure to hop over to Bazzill's Facebook page and score some sneaks!
