Happy (?) Monday everyone!
While we were in New York over Labor Day, we went to the Boardy Barn. It is an outdoor bar that sells incredibly inexpensive beer and plays awesome music. It is also only open in the summer on Sunday afternoons. And my parents used to hang out there. Its basically a Long Island tradition.
One that I somehow managed to miss out on while I was living on Long Island. Fortunately, Tommy and Jamie planned to take us there during our visit home - so my life was Boardy Barn-less no longer!
Because of the red tint in the photos, I wanted to use paper that also had a reddish feel to it. I had the Sassafras Count Me In 6x6 paper pack from Christina's giveaway, and used it to create a 12x12 background to put the photos on. I also used a rounded corner punch on just two of the corners of the photos (like Kimberly did in the Halloween card she sent with her mini album). I really like how it looks, it makes the photos look special, but was very easy to do! Last, I stuck one of the Boardy Barn stickers right in the middle. Those stickers are everywhere too - I ended up covered in them by the end of the night!
So, I have a little confession. I'm a little sad that I'm not home with my family on the east coast where Hurricane Sandy is hitting! I totally love big storms like this - I always look at them like an adventure waiting to happen. AJ and I have been watching the weather channel since yesterday afternoon, because we just find it all so interesting (yeah...I never said we weren't nerdy!)
Plus all the schools have been canceled! I wouldn't mind being home riding out the storm...but I'm heading to work today instead!
If you are affected by Hurricane Sandy, I hope you are staying safe!!
Do you like crazy storms like this? Or do you hate the idea of losing power and flooding and all of the things that can (but hopefully don't!) go along with it?
