Italian, of course! and so close to the English word, romance. We probably stole that from them! Long before I traveled to Italy, I was entranced with all things romantic...the meeting, the glance of eyes, the exchange of sighs, the seduction...(splash...a dash of cold water to bring me back to the topic at hand!). In short, I have always wanted to create the ultimate tribute to ROMANCE...and if this isn't it, I am so close I can taste it.

This is my class for the MS Crop for Hope in November for KnK. Those who take the class (or who want one of the kits...e-mail me)will get velvet, tissue, ribbons, an 8x8x4 paper mache box to hide the album that offers an opportunity to tell all...or not! Ribbons and lace and pearls...what more could a girl ask for? Well, if you have to ask, perhaps you should sign up to take the class or get a kit and find out!

See you at the MS crop!

My interpretation of the download from GRP

This week's challenge for the CT at Gypsy Rose Paperie (www.gypsyrosepaperie.com)was an ad from a women's magazine from the 30s or 40s. I had such fun with this. For information on how I created this and what papers etc. I used, please go to the GRP site, click on the upper left icon and you should see the story behind the creation and the details on how to do this.

{Gypsy} Girl Friday

Today is my first reveal at www.gypsyrosepaperie.com (click on the upper left icon to get to the blog). We are given a download each week and are asked to create something with the vintage image. The downloads are free for use and always something fun. My reveal will always be on Friday and I wanted to give you a bit of a tease...Nikki, the owner of Gypsy Rose Paperie calls these strip teases when she posts tantalizing snippets from the upcoming kits.

It is fun to see how 4 different women interpreted and executed the use of these images. Hope you like mine! To see the full view, got to the site and follow the directions to the blog. The newsletter is a goody too so don't forget to subscribe! and she is always looking for guest designers!!!

Have a great weekend and happy TGIF
