WHEW!! despite contemplating shorts a few days ago i thought i was going to freeze TO DEATH while getting gas yesterday! i do not like that terrible turn of events in my weather!!!
i will be doing a drive by posting today – WAY TOO much to do! the newsletter needs to be finalized & submitted – i am VERY excited about it and i really think you all will like everything we have been working on for you! i m also leaving at the crack of dawn tomorrow to see my mom so i have errands & packing to do today! so let’s get down to business!
I used a Page Maps as usual for this – perhaps i need to find some LO challenge blogs! if you know of any let me know!
Kristin at Artful INKables needed some LOs for her booth this weekend so here is my second one i did for her. the little birdhouse and two flower images are from the set Any Birdy Home - oh so cute! one of the easiest ways to incorporate your favorite stamps into a LO is to use them in place of one or more of the pictures. the second easiest way is to use them to make little embellishments like i have here. i made the flowers using my new favorite thing to diecut – Viva Decor Modeling Grass. Susana has a couple colors in stock now at SCACD and is working on more colors but like anything introduced at CHA it takes time for it all to hit the market! the swirls are drawn on freehand with versmark marker – NEVER thought i could do it but i surprised myself! then i simply added blue pearl pen and gold glitter liner – both from Viv Decor along the lines. i finished it off with some of my glittered skittles along one edge and a few dandelion skittle below the main picture. i have to say it was hard to give this LO up!
and now i am off to get some work done!! i hope everyone is having a great week so far!
