Weekend recap

This past Sunday was my birthday. This year I decided that I do want to celebrate and make this day special. My friend Maya joined me on Covered Bridge Studio Tour. We spent few hours visiting local artists and cute antique shops. Few pictures from the weekend - all taken with my Samsung Nexus.

Fall in Thiensville. I drive past this beauty every day and just can't get enough of it.

We stopped by the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts. Here is my friend Maya sitting under gorgeous Native American quilt.

And here is me, attempting to take a self portrait outside the museum despite the drizzling rain.

We stopped for refuel at Anvil Pub and Grille in a picturesque Cedar Creek Settlement. After that we visited few more shops and studios in Cedarburg.

A cup of latte was a perfect finish to our tour. But the day didn't end there. Later I had a date with Ofir. We ended up going to a restaurant in a local mall. We had a nice time and I found a drink that I liked - Diva Martini.

I can not leave you without a layout. This one goes 19 years back. That dreamy girl is me. Hard to believe. I think inside I still feel the same as 20 years ago but than I look in the mirror... let's save it for another post. I used a sketch from Scrap 365 blog. The background paper is from Wayfarer collection by Bazzill. Almost everything else is Sassafras Lass. I threw in one paper from DCWV but it is hiding behind the pictures and the blue square.

Supplies: patterned paper (Bazzill Basics, Sassafras Lass, DCVW), stickers, diecuts, letter stickers (Sassafras Lass), Sepia accents (Ranger), corner punch (Fiskars)


The dots and the banner "rope" are made with Sepia Accents by Ranger. 

P.S. Silhouette Cameo is on it's way to my house!! (Thank you, girlfriend! Yes, you know who you are) I am super excited and I can't wait to start playing. Any tips?? Where to start? What accessories do I need? I know nothing!
