I feel like I have been a bit neglectful of my blog lately. Sometimes life gets in the way of creating. Life is good like that. :)
Definitely in the mood to scrap some older photos lately. The song at Scrapping the Music this week is Because of You by Kelly Clarkson, such a beautiful song and immediately brought to my mind how much Em has changed our lives. Especially the joy she brings to my mom. So this is for them! :)
This is getting triple duty with some beautiful papers from Fancy Pants from the AMM store and my digital tip for The Next Step. Full directions for adding some hybrid elements to alter your papers over there.
And a close-up of the background- over cardboard I glued some Fancy Pants chipboard paisleys, (they are on clearance for $1.80!!!) then over painted with yellow paint, let dry, then gesso and wiped part away for a sun washed look. The texture is gorgeous!!
And why my week has been so busy. Em and P are taking swim lessons every day and loving every minute of it! Before this week, we couldn't even get her to put her face in the water and yesterday - the third day - she is jumping off the diving board and swimming underwater! I am so proud of her and P!!
I think she is proud of herself, too! :)
Just working on a couple of things that I can't share yet....but I will soon!! Oh, and a little toot! I was on the Graphic 45 blog again - this time for being published in Sew Somerset using G-45 papers!
See you all soon!
