This week I’m spending time in San Francisco, California to visit my family and celebrate my dad’s 80th birthday, spend some quality time with my mom, and brother. I was born and raised in San Francisco and it’s a beautiful place to visit. Plus I’m super excited to meet my new niece – Aubrey.
I would never change a thing about growing up in San Francisco. We had amazing culture, I grew up in a melting pot of people, culture, excellent food, and more physical sports and outdoor activities than you can think of. I’m quite proud to say I’m a California girl – even if I don’t live here anymore.
One of the things we loved about being in the Bay Area was going to our old family cabin in the Santa Cruz Mountains. I loved being surrounded by the towering Redwoods (hummm, wonder where my love of redwoods came from?) We would go on hikes, walk through the Basins, and go to the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz. The Boardwalk had the scariest (well as a kid) rollercoaster, because it was all wood! I loved it. So when we had the free Sale-a-bration Stamp set Feeling Sentimental, I had to do a sunset boardwalk scene – it just reminded me of the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz.
This card was one of the projects in my Brayer 101 – Introduction to Creative Scenery class that I taught the past few months. The stamp set is now gone (but I know several of you have it!), so I’ve come up with a great new project to replace it, but wanted to share this beautiful card with you. I hope you like it!
I will be sharing how I made this card in a detailed post filled with Creative Tips to anyone subscribed to my Creative Tips mailing list! I’m going to share it on Saturday at 12 noon – the day of my Dad’s party, so you have plenty of time to subscribe still!
Have a great day – enjoy your families – I’m going to enjoy spending quality time with mine. I’ll be sure to report back all week so that you can see all the fun places and things I’m doing.
