Same picture (from a layout I did a couple day ago), different layout!
More American Crafts love! (Despite the fact I didn't make the DT. :( ) Congrats to all that did!
And I got some JilliBean Soup journaling sprouts too!
AND, to prove JUST how technologically challenged I truly am, my version of a sketch! LOL!
I can draw it MUCH easier than I could ever figure out how to do it digitally!
How pathetic am I??
Also for the fair, I whipped this together... (For the "other" papercrafts class)
The flowers are from Sweet Vintage 78 on Etsy...
The idea "sprouted" (couldn't help myself) from a frame I saw Ginger Williams do. She did these fantastic flowers (flowers she handmade out of paper) and framed them, all using Cosmo Cricket Early bird... I used a little early bird, and some of the swimming line... and the flowers were fabric and vintage sewing pattern!
Yes... I KNOW I could make them myself... but I don't have vintage patterns at the moment (though on my list of things to find) or much fabric... sometimes it is just nice to buy something pretty from another artist...
The chipboard button, Sweet Vintage also.
Can I just say... I LOVE my butterfly punches STILL? :)
I entered 4 layouts and one frame at the fair... we'll see. They might want all Jolee's and matted pictures. We all know that isn't me. (Disclaimer: Not saying there is anything wrong with Jolee's OR matting your pictures.)
Wish me luck!
Here are a few pictures of my alone time with Gabriel last week! We went to the farmers markets in Davenport.
Where Gabriel ate his way through the market. :)
I do NOT want to dwell on how many grams of sugar are in the above treats! :)
And they have this weird slide that doesn't really work and the kids tend to fall off of. Hmmmm...
And for Alicia... since she just posted a comment about including Dad...
This one (below) was taken the other day when we decided to take the dogs for a walk.
I put the camera on the back of the car in the driveway and ran...
And yes, that is a dog in a front carrier (Baby Bjorn style) :)
