CFC66:  Create a project featuring something you might see in or at the ocean

This new CAS-ual Friday challenge gave me a chance to use some new dies and stamps.

The bubbles are made using Memory Box’s Loopy Rings die. The fish stamps, die and sentiment are W plus 9 “Fish More”set. I love this little set.

Thanks for looking. Have a great week end. Summer is almost over. Gulp!

I zentangled in Maine, in Massachusetts, during breakfast and after dinner.

This Inauguration has been a most extraordinary thing!


This was the view of the Boston skyline as the sun set this week. I was on the roof deck of Ann’s building on Beacon Street. The days are getting shorter and the nip of fall is in the air.

I was off to photograph a light house but got seriously delayed when I spotted this blue heron in a salt marsh pool right next to the Center.
