ocean waves

Hey crafty friends... am I the only one who can't believe it's the end of August? This year seems to have flown by. Can't say I'm happy about the end of summer (love the heat - but hopefully it stays nice in September).  Also, I realize I've been out of work for almost a year :( - I was lucky enough to get a part time contract this summer that's kept me busy.  Just trying to stay positive that something else is coming around the corner. :)

This week's Seize the Birthday is all about ocean colours.  I used a die that reminds me of waves just to continue on with the ocean theme.  This technique of mosaicing with this die is not my original idea - I saw it on Pinterest somewhere (as is the case with a lot of my ideas!)

Hope you can play along with us!  All the details are on the blog.  It's Lindsey's last week with us (she's been awesome!) ... be sure to give her and the rest of the DT some crafty love.

Thanks so much for your comments.  Always appreciate it.  Have a terrific day and a wonderful weekend.
