FYI - I'm heading out of town tomorrow, yes again! This time I'm going to Hilton Head, SC. My family is going to the beach because my nephew is about to start school and we wanted to take him for the 1st time that he will remember. Don't worry I'm sure I will be back with plenty of pictures.

Paper: White, Rose Red; Stamps: Inque Boutique - Memoirs & Bella Flora; Ink: Sage Shadow, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip; Other: Gold Brads, Clear eP, Acetate Sheet*, Sante Fe Punch
To make this effect I stamped the treetop from Inque Boutique's Memoirs on a piece of Acetate in Rose Red. I then sprinkled clear eP and heated it on a flat surface so that it wouldn't warp too bad. The cool part was once the eP heated it & the acetate were like one just slightly tinted. If I have enough requests I will be glad to give a tutorial.

We left for Helen, Georgia Friday morning in a van that the A/C had conveniently quit working in. Thankfully it wasn't as hot as it could have been. Three hours later we got there to find bumper to bumper traffic (which to be honest I was expecting at all).The first thing we did after checking into our cabin... this place was very nice. We had a three bedroom, two bath, & a 6 person jacuzzi.... we went tubing.
I have to say that tubing is a lot of fun and can be relaxing. I have several recommendations with regards to this though: 1) Swim shoes, not flip flops, not crocs, not tennis shoes, definitely not bare foot...SWIM SHOES. 2) I don't know if you can see the guy in the picture on the far right has a pole/stick across his lap. The tubing companies sell these for $5 or you can bring your own. Highly recommend because they are great for getting you unstuck without having to get out of your tube over & over again. 3) Although we had a blast it would have been so much better if the river would have been higher.
Like said I'm not sharing all of the pictures we took because I don't want to bore you and I don't think either of us have that kind of time.
After all of this we headed down to the Habersham Winery & Nora's Mill. Here's where the warning of entirely too many pictures would definitely some into play so I will only share a few of my absolute favorites because behind Nora's Mill were ducks, turtles, egrets, wrens, fish, waterfalls, etc.
And that was the end of Day 2
This was a sad day. This was the day we went home. We didn't go straight home we stopped at Unicoi State park's lake or creek depending on how you look at it.
The cool thing is Alex made a shark in the sand while we were there. He did a really good job. We left right before it started thunderstorming.
On the way back, we also stopped at this really big Farmer's Market named Jaemor's. I mean it is huge. They had all kinds of stuff. Here's Em & I sitting on a Amish made glider bench.
