A Birthday Wish

Hello there,

I have a birthday card to share with you that I made a few weeks ago.  I pulled out some masculine cardstock and wanted to use a piece of vintage maps paper for a nautical theme.

The cute spiral notebook paper was created using the Lil' Inker Designs die with coordinating stamp.  The lines were stamped in Going Gray ink.  I found a mini library clip to accent the top.

A closer look at the spiral paper.

The compass was stamped in Early Espresso on a Spellbinders Small Circle, layered onto an Early Espresso large circle and popped up.  Jute twine was wrapped around the compass with the edges glued down.

Over the past couple of weeks I have been doing so much crafting.  As the leaves start to turn I'm getting excited for autumn to arrive.

Today I am joining ...

Beecher Creek Falls & Bridge

Hi friends,

We have had nothing but beautiful weather and I hope you have been enjoying it.  A drive yesterday brought us to the small Town of Edinburg where we relaxed by Beecher Creek Falls.  The falls are located along the northern side of Great Sacandaga Lake.   

It was just a short walk to the fenced viewing area upstream next to the falls.

The falls have a 20 foot drop and form a natural rock set of stairs.

Taking a selfie!

There is a carefully restored 1879 covered bridge below the falls named after Arad Copeland.  The 35-foot long bridge is New York State's only queenpost truss.  

It was picturesque from every angle. 


I didn't want to leave, but it was getting late and we still had to find a place to enjoy a nice dinner. 

September has been a gorgeous month and next week looks fantastic too!  I'm planning to get some gardening done and enjoy the autumn mums.

Thank you for stopping by.
