Baby on Board

Hi guys! How are you today?

Last week one of my close friends from college had her first child, a little baby girl. I saw just a few pictures, but boy is she a cutie. I wanted to send off my congratulations while I gathered up some things to send to her. I opted for fun and cute, and pulled out Enjoy the Ride. This is my first time using this set, but I really loved it!

I couldn't resist making my little bug pink!

The card background was stamped with Background Basics: Tin Types using Champagne VersaMark. It adds some subtle shimmer that of course doesn't show up in the photos. I used a gel pen to add some more shimmer to the car, focusing on the tail lights and bumper. How cute, you know?

How about some pictures from my trip? Oh, how I miss it already. I wish it was a bit easier for us to dive around here. Bill and I are saving for another trip in January to Indonesia. A trip of a lifetime, with fantastic diving. Anyone have tips for winning the lottery?? ;)


The first picture is from a wreck we dove. That was a great dive. The ship was full of small fish - they parted like a curtain when you swam through.

As you head to deeper water off the coast of Cozumel, the reef structure changes. In shallower water the reef is fairly flat, and dives are usually over the reef. However, when you move into deeper water (80+ feet) the reef becomes more like a wall with open caverns and swim-throughs. Its really something to dive over the edge of the wall and look down into the blue!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great day!
