Wednesday blogging

 Late posting this week - went to Fort Lauderdale for a long weekend and had a blast.  Lots of beach time and sun.  Rained every day for a couple of hours but not enough to ruin anything.  Did lots of walking and lots of eating and sunning!  Loved it.  So many pretty flowers and trees there.
Here's my page for the CSI challenge this week.  Core'dinations is a sponsor this month so my layouts are entirely cardstock from their products.  For this page I started with a sheet of purple from the Tim Holtz Shattered collection.  Then I embossed some white cardstock in sections and added some purple gelantos.  I then layered embellishments I made from cardstock - sanding some as well.  Then I created all my flowers from cardstock and put it all together.  The beautiful girls are my daughter (left) and her two nursing school (although different schools) friends.  The girl on the left danced with Brandy for years when they were younger.

Next are some more pages I did with my Gossamer Blue kit.  The first is for Maria (my son's girlfriend) - a beautiful photo of her and her mother.

Next up is Brandy (left) again with some of her friend's out having fun.
The last is more from Jason and Maria's trip back in April to visit her parents in San Luis, Mexico.  These were all taken at her parents home.

Then how about a couple of 4th of July cards - all with Core'dination's cardstock!  
Thanks for stopping by!
