Life never goes the way it's supposed to! :)

I was SO going to post yesterday AND today - but our internet went down just as I was starting last night - and was down until just a few minutes ago. I'm SO sorry!! SO, I'm going to post two different samples right now - so you can take your time looking at them! :)




Here's the first one....




This is from the last Advanced Techniques class; it's cracked glass on the pinecone front medallion. The set is PEACEFUL WISHES - a set I've wanted for SOOOOOOOOO long, but just got thanks to my dear, wonderful friend Amy :D - done on Garden Green. The medallion is stamped in Chocolate Chip, and matted on brushed gold card stock, then Chocolate Chip.

It's a simple, easy technique! We had a great time - always do. :)




The next sample is from the last Scrapbooking class....


Isn't it pretty? We used the Stems & Silhouettes jumbo wheel in Night of Navy on Whisper White, then used either the craft knife (this is done with it) or paper snips, trimmed out a nice border. Then, we used Dazzling Diamonds glitter in the centers of the flowers to give it a little sparkle, and glued the borders onto Bashful Blue. The mat pieces are also Night of Navy. Simple, easy 6x6 pages that have a little razzle-dazzle - doesn't show in the scan!!! - and are useable for just about any subject matter.
OK, gotta jet - it's time to meet Kenn for some lunch. :) This is the last day of the month, ladies!!! Tomorrow starts June - and it's time for the Annual Birthday Challenge - so be watching and planning.... :)
Be SURE to take the time to STAMP something - that humidity outside will get you.... :)
