Magnet Swap!

Hello! How are you? I am writing to you tonight from the beach!!! Hubby suggested on the very spur of the moment that we take an impromtu over nighter to the beach! Our youngest kiddo has developed a fascination for the ocean recently! She spends a lot of time with her nose in a large stack of books about the ocean! So seeing as how we are a home schooling family when one of our kids expresses an interest in something we try to encourage it! This time we wound up at the beach! Since the beach happens to be my most very favorite place in the entire world I am just thrilled! :) Hannah is loving it here too! She has already collected a bucket full of shells and taken tons of pictures! I will post some photos from our trip tomorrow, but wanted to share the results of my last swap with you tonight! One of my good buddies Kristin (Hiya Kristin!!!) hosted a fun magnet swap. No holds barred...simply create some magnets! It was a really fun swap! Here is what I came up with:

Colored these with Stampin Up! markers to get a blend of colors on the flowers. They are simple, but I thought they would make a good fridge decoration!

The staple is green to match the stems! The sentiment is done in chocolate chip.

Cased these from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts blog! She is amazing!! I thought they were just adorable! I plan to make several more to flutter around my fridge front! :)

Here is a close up of the flutterby!

Ok, I have beach-y breezes to take in and family to play with! Hope that you have a wonderful night! I will be back tomorrow to post some beach pictures! See you soonest! :)

OMGosh....I soooo love these magnets....honestly....I'm in love with the butterflys. They came out so beautifully.
I'm jealous that you are writing from the's my favorite place in the world too. I told my hubby that since I have had to travel wherever he goes that the least he could do is make sure we retire at the beach!!!!!
