Back in the Groove

Hello Everyone!

Well, I'm back!! I hope that you have all had a wonderful summer. Mine has been a whirlwind of activity with beach vacation, moving from Rhode Island to Texas, shopping and setting up our new house, unpacking and just TONS of activity!
Today was the first time I've done any stamping in about two months and I have to admit I was a bit overwhelmed when I first started thinking about what to do. I think it may take a week or so for me to really hit my stride again, so go easy on me, please! LOL
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch to get going. I started with a Bashful Blue and then added a layer of Summer Sun. The patterned paper is from Stampin Up and the green is just from my stash. I also used a bit of Regal Rose. The two square floral stamps are from an Inkadinkado set and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. The flowers in are from Floral Doodles. It's a bit hard to see in the photo, but the rhinestones around the curve of the sentiment are actually green and yellow.
So, something simple for today as I start to get my feet wet again. I hope you like it! Also, I know that Stampin Up has new colors and old colors that are now new colors and new colors that are not colors anymore; but I have not ordered any paper yet. So for a little while you all will probably see some old colors.
Finally, you know how much I love reading your comments and I hope you all will have a few minutes for some kind words for me; but I do have to let you know that I have had to put on comment moderation. While I was taking my break from blogging I kept getting comments from people from "not so nice" websites. Hopefully, that will stop soon! Have a great evening!
