Hoover Dam Pages for Marilyn
Saw Marilyn this past Sunday. The visit was a blur! Time flies when you are having fun with super cool people. I showed her glimmermist and how to spray chipboards, in fact she sprayed the little cog pieces we used on her page. They are Dusty Attic, straight from Australia.
Anyhow, she gave me a huge bunch of photos from The Hoover Dam for our exchange. The Theme this month is travel...have still yet to go deep diving in some photos from highschool. I thought it was pretty cool, since I've scrapped the Hoover Dam before and in fact, pulled out my page to show her. I decided to get funny and use the same paper. It's terribly old Close to My Heart and you get points if you can name which one! I did use up my stash finally. I included a photo of a card I made with some scraps and how little I have left. Not much of anything! Anyhow, my original Hoover Dam page is MUCH flatter than the two I just made. Those Australia girls have driven me to using depth and mists! Marilyn did also say with a smirk as she gave me the photos that I would have to lay off the butterflies and flowers! But, I did manage to sneak a very little bloom in there, in the midst of the coggs. If I recall from our trip to the Dam, there was desert all around but these little itty bitty sweet desert blooms would pop up unexpectedly!
Sorry about the title, Marilyn. I can still hear our tour guide saying, Welcome to the Dam Tour. It cracks me up to this day. Obviously, I need to get out more. There is also a new little triangle punch from Stampin' Up that I just got! I had to put it to immediate use. I don't think it's released as of yet to the general public, but I can assure you, it rocks. I still have a heap of photos. If I get inspired between now and next week, maybe I'll scrap up another page...we will see!
