SSW2: Sweet Pea rewind
It's another Wednesday and that means challenge time over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. This week we have a new sponsor: Sweet Pea Stamps.
We are having a rewind of an old sketch. It's a great one and still works well. I'm using Connie Fong's sweet Spring Flowers for my card. I needed a sympathy card and I think this works well for this.
I hope you can join in the fun.
I also wanted to show you some pictures from my trip to Alaska. The hubs and I agreed that we could "totally live there!" The only thing that was a bit of a drawback: the extreme temperatures and the whole daylight until 11:30 at night thing! We wanted to see the Northern Lights buuut we were there in the wrong season. Oh well.
This is Harvard Glacier in College Fjord. The glaciers in the area are named for prominent colleges. Don't look for a Princeton glacier, apparently the founders snubbed that college being graduates from Harvard!
This is a picture of my youngest, reading. He found the library on the boat and spent much of our vacation there. I packed him 5 books. He went through those and then finished another 3. His dad and I were happy to accompany him to the library every day because that was where they served afternoon tea. Yum!
The final picture is the beach. You can't see them because my camera is apparently "zoom challenged" but there are baby Harbor Seals sunning themselves with their moms. How about those mountains tho? Pretty amazing. We saw seals, whales, orca, walrus, and porpoise. The only things I didn't see (and really REALLY wanted to) were Moose and a Grizzly Bear. Buuut everyone came back rested, and happy. Two thumbs up for Alaska!
