A little update!

The past few days... I rested and relaxed. I feel better.
Last Saturday I was invited to join a great group of ladies Lynn, Janet and Laurie. We had a blast and it was really a great evening. Yummy super and desert, thanks Lynn for the Gelato experience, it's was fabulous! Thanks for the amazing evening. Here is what I was working on during the crop and since then, trying to complete the layout... Since for ever I wanted to create a page for my sweetheart Stephane. I played with lots of cool stuff and if your wondering about that yellow ticket is actually from 1963, it's a train pass for the Great Northern Railway. Pretty cool what can you find looking for vintage elements!
Have a great Wednesday!
Make sure to see the tips on picture #4!



I was inspired watching a TV show with Stephane Saturday morning on wood crafting. For this wood die cut word, I used chalk inks to "stain" the natural wood look and then used my Cristal Lacker to give the glazed look to the wood! Love it!

I LOVE this finished layout Stephanie after watching you work on it and the vintage embellies are very cool. I was wondering how you were going to work those in ...

What an amazing page. Steph, your work is just stunning. I saw some of the store samples you made for the Scrapbox, and I fell in LOVE with your work all over again. It made me want to RUN home and scrap! lol
