~ Picnics, Holidays, and Friends ~ random

Home from the park where my family had a happy little picnic together. I spent the afternoon mixing up meatloaf, mashed potatoes, toast, and vegetable medley with my sister. Our little spot in the outdoors was so much fun. I even sat on the swings with my "little" brother! :) Crazy us.

Before I head to bed, I have some little things to share with you ...

 Paper. Scissors. Glue... twine, felt, trim, stamps, ink, flowers, crystals, and so much more!

I'm so loving a new die I got: a film-strip! check it out ...

 ... each section is individually cut, and then pieced together in a row! Love it :)
and, it's a short post tonight as it's WAY late.
but before I go, I want to share a little tag I made for a gift-bag holding some goodies for my friend.


Quick and simple ... the flowers were trimmed from some scraps of patterned paper, and a tag, pearls, ink, and a sweet little stamp finishes the job.

Good night!
