Hello friends, I've missed you all so much. Life has been hectic ... it can get that way sometimes. We decided to take a week and travel to see the beautiful hills of northern Georgia. What a gorgeous area of our country! Waterfalls, hilltop views, history, the Appalachian Trail and so much more. The week we returned was filled with state wide volleyball tournaments, school finals, and student celebrations. I'm still playing catch-up. A big hug goes out to Ros who so kindly sent me a note to "check-in" on me. I was so touched by her gesture of concern ... my heart is full of gratitude for all the friends I've made thru this blog - you are all just amazing!
I have been busy these past couple days and have some new projects to share with you. Today's project takes it's inspiration from the Just Us Girls color challenge. A wonderful combination of rich tones coupled with pastels.
The patterned papers showcase the colors beautifully. A Scallop Edge Border Punch added interest to the layers and a simple rub-on was perfect for my sentiment ...
The scallop circle is a neutral shade called River Rock on which I added a sweet little flower print circle. My crocheted flower (I made dozens while on vacation ... so relaxing and lots of fun) is embellished with soft velvet leaves, seam binding dyed with So Saffron Ink, a bit of lace, a pin from Viola, and a posy for the center.
It's just wonderful to be back sharing with you again. I can't wait to get "out and about" to see what you have all been up to! Thanks for taking the time to stop by today! (I'll be posting my next two projects soon ... right after I clean the "kid prints" off my camera lens - boy these pictures are blurry!)
