Celebrate Life

One thing about kids - they make you celebrate life, don't they? I felt this picture really captured that and we did a guest designer lift of the talented, Stacy Cohen, you must see what she created this month at inspireMe as guest designer!! So I created this project - not quite a layout but one to hang the wall in my studio with mostly the Postcards from Paris collection by Webster's Pages. Makes me smile! :)

I sprinkled some sand on the wet gesso to add some texture to the cardboard.

Stacy crocheted a border around her layout so I a made a gathered fabric ruffle around the edge of mine.
Doesn't that make you want to smile, too? Photo edited with a paper texture and Mindy's Photo Actions - Beautiful Sepia, frame by Jessica Sprague.

Don't forget about my FREE 3 day class at AMM starting on Tuesday the 8th! Just be registered in the forum and you will see the thread with the class download on Tuesday!

Thanks for the supportive comments about my issues - I'm doing good - just let me get through this yard sale this weekend and then start catching up with every ones blogs again! See you soon
