Hi all!! Whew!! I can't believe how busy I have been!! For the last few days and nights I have been filling out some job applications and redoing my resume, which has taken a lot longer than I thought! And, I have been getting ready to teach a workshop tonight so I was madly cutting and designing projects and then last night she called and cancelled!!!!! Yep, no workshop tonight....but we moved it to Tuesday so I am ahead of the game now, lol!!! She has a very sick child so I completely understand...I just wish I hadn't had to pull my hair out! But, I do have something I want to share with you today so I guess that's something, right? I made this layout (it is framed but I took it out to take a picture) for my friend's daughter's wedding day. I have been doing some layouts for her since he is on his way to Iraq for the THIRD time in the four years they have been together and will be gone for another eight months. So, to give her something to hang on her wall in her bedroom at moms, I asked her for a few of her favorite wedding pics. I made one already, but she showed that one to her husband, and he promptly claimed that one for his own - I was very flattered, lol! Hopefully she will like this one just as much!! Everything on this page is Stampin' Up! and I even used some of my Pretties Kit to add a touch of elegance. The big flower is inked with Chocolate Chip ink and then stamped with my Romance stampin' wheel. The middle has one of the new jumbo chocolate chip brads and is topped with a large pearl, also from the Pretties Kit. If you look at the flowers in the upper corner, those are also cut using my Big Shot Die called Flower Layers III, which I also used my Romance wheel on in Chocolate Chip ink. The stamp from the Doodle This stamp set is stamped in Chocolate Chip Craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder (click pic to enlarge). Very monochromatic page because I made the pictures Sepia and I did not want to distract from them. All in all, I am happy with how it turned out and I hope she is too!! She will get this from me on Sunday when she comes for my calendar class. I have one other which I will share this weekend, I am just finishing it up now!! Thanks for stopping by, I will be back tomorrow with Tamara's sketch as well as a few other goodies I want to share!! Till then - have a fantabulous day!
