Long time no blog. That’s what happens when you go on vacation! This is the last ATC I did before I left, I just didn’t have time to take a picture and put it here until now. Patterson is a name on my father’s side of the family, although this is not a picture of his family! It’s just an old photo I took a liking to, and decided it reminded me of a family reunion at the beach. Odds are this photo was not taken at Cape May, either, but I did swim at that beach many years ago when I still had a girlish figure.
I actually used a stamp on this ATC, probably the first time I ever inked it up! I love this journaling stamp by Purple Onion Designs, and if I ever made time to scrapbook again, I know I would use it a lot. It’s perfect for a mini travel book — I’ll put that on my to-do list! The paper, what little you can see of it, is from the lovely Graphic 45 beach collection. The little swimming ticket is from a collection of beach clipart by Tumblefish Studios that I purchased at Deviant Scrap. Unfortunately, they no longer sell this collection.
