For You and a few NYC photos 38

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, October 23, 2012 @ 11:00 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great week! Scott and I will be out and about NYC taking in a little more culture and sights of the city before heading back to Phoenix. Our flight has Wi-Fi so I'm looking forward to catching up with my paper crafting friends ;)

For the first time in 7 years Tina was not able to take care of my sweet Gretchen and Griffin for the length of my vacation because she was traveling herself for work. She did care for them a few days before taking them to the pet resort. As a little thank you gift, I baked her a loaf of pumpkin - ginger bread and made a tag using the Die-namics Tag Your're It and Stamp Set to fancy up the bag.
I also stamped the For You sentiment from Die-namics Tag Your're It and Stamp Set on a die cut tag made using a die from Die-namics Traditional Tags STAX. I adorned it with a multi-layered die cut heart that was made using Die-namics Hearts a Plenty along with Grapesicle Felt and Kraft cardstock, finishing it off with a stitched on Whip Cream button.
Shown below are a few photos of various sites taken while here in NYC:
Taken from the "Top of the Rock" / Observation deck top of Rockefeller Center: The tallest structure in the far distance is One World Trade Center:
Central Park:
The Empire State Building is the tallest building in the distance:
Here's a closer view of One World Trade Center. Upon completion, this building will be the tallest structure in the United States:
This is one of the two pools at the National September 11 Memorial:

The Statue of Liberty:
Rockefeller Plaza ice skating rink:
St. Patrick's Cathedral:
THE Apple Cube store on 5th Avenue ;)
The Wall Street Bull:
Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you have a great day/evening!
Be Sweet ;)

Gorgeous tag Mona... and fabulous pics... thanks for sharing them! They bring back some good memories of NYC... and one funny one! I went down a level to that Ice Rink.... and walked through the glass doors just to get a closer look and a better photo.... when a security lady (hmmm I SAY lady but she was a mean one..) grabbed me by the shoulder and ordered me to 'step behind the line ma'am....' in no uncertain terms!! LOL! Ooops!
Hugs
