Busy Busy Busy....

I have been away from the blogging world lately. It seems I say that a lot. My goal is to post at least once a week and that’s not happening so I think I’ll just accept that I’ll post when I can and try to be satisfied!
A couple of things going on….. If you’re heading to the Scrapbook Expo in Pleasanton, Ca this weekend, please stop by the ClearScraps booth. I’ll be there on Friday doing Make n’Takes. If you haven’t worked with Acrylic or even a bit afraid to, you just have to jump in and check it out. Those of you in my area, I’m going to be having a class on the mixable album. I’ll have a few kits available for sale too!
 Boy, I’m being long-winded! If you’re still with me….. Here’s a little project I created for a friend who gave me about ten 1940’s LIFE magazines. They are sooooo cool but oh my, you should read some of these articles. Amazing what they could get away with back then. I'm sharing with Unique Crafters Challenge for March. I'll be a guest Designer there in July!
Close to my Heart kraft card
Tim Holtz trim with Glimmer mist in Juniper
Bo Bunny Gabrielle Flight cardstock
Distress Ink – Tea Dye
acrylic paint – dry brushing

Glimmer Misting the white flowers and tag with Juniper was  a perfect match for the paper.
And the inside.
 AND…… one more thing……. If you’ve read this far…… I’m doing a give-away next week so check back…… I’ll just say “WOW”.

Happy Trails Everyone!
