We just got back from a relaxing (well...sorta/kinda relaxing) week of vacation in Door County which is known for it's beautiful landscape scenery along Lake Michigan and Green Bay. Everywhere you go are bluffs, beaches, lighthouses, fish boils,and wineries....and DELICIOUS Door County cherries! In fact, while we were there we had...
cherry topped swedish pancakes
cherry stuffed french toast
It's no wonder I had cherries on my mind when I spied Jen Shults' Deconstructed sketch #65.
Can you spy 7 different ways I used cherries in this close-up?
I used Unity's Itty Bitty Sweet as a Bowl stamp, Denami Designs cherry stamp, Melissa Francis Kitschy Kitchen DP, a cherry blossom sticker, cherry ribbon, a cherry embellie from M's $1 bin, and the word CHERRY is in the sentiment! If you're scratching your head while looking at the sentiment and thinking that it's fuzzy looking it's because the entire image has super-fine glitter over it and is very pretty in real-life....it just doesn't photograph well.
If you're wondering why we went to Door County, let me show you.....
Looking out from the top of the Bailey's Harbor lighthouse onto Lake Michigan, it only took 97 stairs to see this amazing view!
A chanel marker/range light in Sturgeon Bay.
A look out point in Fish Creek (minus one of the kiddos who had to stay home to work.)
A fish boil in Fish Creek....do you see me?!! I'm the one giving a dirty glare to the ladies who decided to show up at the last minute and stand in front of me during the actual "boil" so they could take their pictures...because really, what's rude about that?!!
Lastly, the wonderful log home we rented for the week that was nestled solely among 17 acres, and completely internetless.
Relaxing? You betcha!!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving all the wonderfully sweet comments, they always make me smile.
