Have you had a chance to check out the StampNation California Vacation yet. Just in case you missed the past couple of days I thought I would fill you in with some sneak peeks.
On Day 2 we headed to the beach to catch some sun, sand and surf. It was my day to post a video, so I showed how to create your own beach scene using emboss resist & masking techniques.

Today we are putting on our prison stripes and heading to one of my favorite "tourist" spots in San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz. Also known as The Rock. Once a prison, now you can take a ferry over for a walking tour of the prison.

As a fun play on the theme I made a card with black and white stripes to highlight the You Rock die from Ellen Hutson's Essentials by Ellen. She's one of our sponsors. That reminds me, I need to go grab my coupon code and do some shopping. ;)
