My son & family are coming to see us today from Oklahoma. We had a close family friend get killed by a hit & run driver over the weekend and the funeral is Saturday. So I will get to see my grandsons, but not for a happy occaision. They will help cheer us all up!
Well I have been a busy girl! Since I don't get around much, I have gotten a bit of scrapping done. About 15 cards that I am making for a couple of Aunts for Christmas gifts, to be exact! And a layout for "Scrap Your A** Off" competition. I am not as happy with the brightness of it, but it is a good layout. Went together fast...the paper kinda dictated what I should do.
I sold this paper in my store several years ago. It is from SEI. I knew when I saw it that I had to save it for a "Lisa" page. She is from Kansas and is a Wildcat fan. So purple is her fvorite color! I made this one 12x12, so I will have to make a separate one for her 8x8 book. Which is ok, I have some more of it! The pictures were from when sheand her hubby were here last summer. We went to Springfield, Ill. to see all the Lincoln exhibits. That was a great day!
But you didn't come here to hear about vacations! Here is a close up of the "fussy cutting" that I did! It was a little tiresome, but I got it finished. I added the wee tiny pearl bling on the petioles, again tiresome. They kept sticking to my fingers!! The large flower is a piece of chipboard that I covered. I didn't realize until I saw the picture that I didn't ink the inside of the flower! It is still chipboard gray!
I used this flower on another project some time ago for a small cork board to hang in my room. Looks so different with different paper on it! I had a couple of the packages, left over from owning the store!
Well Dreamers, that's all I have today. Need to get busy doing a bit of house cleaning for my family. I have the word "Dream" all over my house to remind me that, even small dreams are dreams. If you have a dream, you still have hope. So for now, I am Dreamin' of a fully recovered knee....you keep Dreamin' too!
