Just a quick post...

then I am off to physical therapy!  They are really helping my leg feel so much better, but I can't help but complain...a little bit.  Wednesday, they had me balance on one leg...throw a rubber ball at a small trampoline...try to catch it...all standing on one leg!  Come on now....To start, I can't catch. With a glove, yea. With my hands? Get real!  I was quite comical as the ball repeatedly hit me in the tummy, the chest, the shoulder...a couple of times it hit me in the hands!  I even hit the exercise bike behind me!  So on to more fun today!  And while you are laughing at me..this is how your fingers look after washing 3 times...after dyeing silk ribbon with Distress Ink!  It is lighter today, but no, it is not fully water soluble!

  Wanted to show you a quick look at the layout I did for the weekly competion at Paper Secrets...

This is an 8x8 layout, so you just have to imagine how tiny the flowers I made are! And I have yet to figure out how to take a square picture!  But trust me, the pictures and paper are glued on straight...I have a ruler and I know how to use it!!

Here's a closeup of the pleated flowers I made.  The orange and blue ones are 1"!!  The "ribbon was made with microbeads on a 1/4" red sticky tape strip!  It's hard to follow sketches in minature...but I did.
My ride will be here any minute...so I'm am running!

Ooooh, I like these flowers. I have been working on some homemade flowers the last few months when I get a chance. Lisa
