Life is too short...

I used Crate Paper's Restoration Collection for the papers, the Maya Road banner from CHA and Maya Road ribbons to make this layout along with Helmar's Liquid Scrap Dots to add dimension to the layers of flowers that make up the border.

Thanks for looking. (this is my pal, Janet Miller and I at the Columbia Restaurant in St. Pete Florida and the drink of the day is the house specialty, Sangria).

Vintage banner with Maya rose canvas and ribbons

I've had this banner since CHA (thanks Maya Road) and had been wanting to play with it since then. Posh Scraps, in Palm Harbor, just got all the new ribbons in and I was off and running! I dyed the banners with Glimmer Mist, attached everything with Fabri Tacand printed the vintage lovely ladies onto canvas paper then used Perfect Pearls in pink to high light their drapes and the flowers.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks for looking!

ACOT: Altered Objects Challenge for Sept

Every month, the CT members at A Cherry on Top, issue challenges for the membership. I do an altered challenge that centers around using objects most people would find around their house. In the past year, I have challenged members to use such things as coffee filters, empty boxes, ribbon, the cellophane packaging off embellishments, etc.

The challenge for this month is to open the tool box or odds and ends container for a tool box and use at least one of the items on a card, a layout or as an embellishment on either of them. I used a hinge and a rubber washer on this card.
