It was a good day

November 14 was a great day! The sun was shinning, Dave had the day off and we had access to a car. So we went to D.U.M.B.O for lunch. That's short for Down Under The Manhattan bridge- yes I laughed when I first heard it too. We had sushi rolls, Jacques Torres chocolate chip cookies (best in the world!!!) and visited our favorite park which has totally changed. There are bike lanes, lots of new walking spaces and a huge baby playground. Lola finally had fun in a swing- usually she screams her head off.  I recommend you head over- take the F train over the bridge and bring your walking shoes- the view is AMAZING- you can see Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and the downtown skyline all at once. Plus there's this fantastic pizza place that only sells pies- just the kind of encouragement I need. :)

This page is for a Punky Scraps challenge.
Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Materials: Am Crafts Vanilla cardstock, DCWV Downtown Loft- bridge and turquoise NYC map papers,  Sassafras Lass skull and hearts paper and brown numbers paper, Swell woodgrain tape, NYC Subway Map tape from Etsy,  Hambly screen prints overlay textures- pink, Martha Stewart blue stars tape,  Maquee plastic letters- red,  Uniball gel pen- black and white, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Expresso Bean (border)

I really like this challenge site and it's not too frilly style. I love me some flowers and lace but I seem to be moving away from them these days. I also want to shout out DCWV for the GORGEOUS Downtown Loft pad- it's so urban MOD. It's got woodgrain, lots of green, brown and turquoise and YUMM-O NYC maps. LOOVE the urban vibe!!! Funny- I either LOVE the heck out of DCWV paper or really really hate it.

I also recommend to those who like their art messy- go get you some Tattered Angles Glimmer Glam. I got 8 colors from a great lady named Darla Charles who was selling them for a discount on the boards at 2Peas. I plan to make a HUGE mess with them soon.

A moment of quiet. 

MuChOS SmOoChEs!
