Set Sail for Adventure!

Here's to new adventures! A game changer for me will be this new product by Orangemonkie, Folio2. A lightbox of sorts complete with two strips of LED lights and a dimmer. Since most months of the year where I live are in darkness, I struggle with lighting. I've tried several things and hope this will be the "fix" I was looking for!

So here's to "New Adventures!" I have a grandson who is embarking on a new adventure as he begins a new school for Middle School/Jr. High. And a friend who is setting sail for new career adventures! Seems that Neat & Tangled had just the images I was looking for. That paired with their new "Seeing Stars" die was perfect!

I love appliqué so maybe that's why I think it's fun to paper piece as I did here. Lawn Fawns 6x6 "Beachside" paper pack was perfect for this nautical look.  And, I had to cut up the Neat & Tangled, "Seeing Stars" die, too!  And, I do think the "folio2" is helping the photo quality!

WooHoo! Thank goodness, I hate being in the dark!

Cheers to September, ready or NOT!


  1. I love this card!! Great use of Lawn Fawn paper too :) I am intrigued by the Foldio. Do you have the ten inch or fifteen inch one? How do you like it?

    1. I have the folio2, the larger one. So far so good!
