More metal embossing...

I had another great metal embossing workshop on Saturday with a few very creative ladies. I loved all their colour combinations and am inspired to do another mirror myself. Now to just find a little extra time to do it!



What do you think? Isn't their work awesome! What's your favourite metal colour combination?

If you're looking for something creative to do next month there is still a few spots left in the Grid Texture Canvas and Metal Embossed Book workshops.

Get Creative!

Altered photo ATC's

This months ATC theme was Altered photo. I found this a challenge but as you can see the others didn't. What fun creations this month.







It did make me want to explore altering photo's some more though. Have you done some photo altering? Do you have some techniques for it that you can share with me?

Happy Creating

Gardens and Butterfly's oh my!

As I said the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens and Butterfly Conservatory were my favourite stop on our little Niagara Falls getaway. The Butterfly Conservatory is in the Botanical Gardens and holds more than 2000 tropical butterflies with more than 45 species. As soon as we stepped in it was like being transformed to another world. Although it was quite busy there was a peace and tranquility that was hard to leave again. The butterflies seemed undisturbed by all the attention and often landed right on people as well as the lush greenery all around. 

As you can guess I highly recommend the Botanical gardens and Butterfly Conservatory. I hope you enjoyed my little tour of it.

A little break and trip to Niagara Falls

I took a few weeks off while my son and his girlfriend were visiting along with her parents from China. We had a full house and a great visit along with a quick trip to Niagara Falls. I hadn't seen the falls for a number of year and its was amazing as usual. I never get tired of the wonders of nature. While there we did the Maid of the Mist tour and hopped on the WEGO bus to see the Floral Clock, Botanical Gardens, Butterfly Conservatory, Whirlpool Aero Car and Queenston Heights park.

My favourite was the Botanical Gardens and Butterfly Conservatory. I got a little carried away taking picures there so I'll share them tomorrow.

Have you taken any breaks yet this summer? Where are your favourite places to bring visitors?
