Your Face

It’s been a week. It’s been a really long and extremely difficult week since my Mother in Law passed away. I want to thank those of you who have helped me (and Gene) try to get through this. Writing my last post was extremely difficult, but it needed to happen. And those of you who commented on it, really touched me. Thank you.

So I am slowly trying to get back into the swing of things. Of creating…of blogging…of my regular life stuff. So, I made a layout that made me smile. Something that I am having a hard time doing these past few days. I hope it makes you smile too!

Your-Face-1

This is my silly little girl…making her silly little face that she makes whenever a camera is pointed at her. I have no idea why she does this face…but it’s hilarious! She crunches up her nose, and squints her eyes (mostly the right one) and grits her teeny teeth.

Your-Face-2

She’s so silly! I used some ric rak (which I am quickly becoming obsessed with!), Prima flowers, brads and a journal spot. The title was created from Smeared Ink’s Teen Style Sayings. I embossed the edges on my sage cardstock which was first inked with White. I think it came out cool.

Your-Face-3

So there you go.  A happy little layout that brightened my day. Again, thanks for all the love. I’ve really needed it. Have an inspiring (and happy!) day.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
