In an never ending quest to fill my ME album, I thought I'd take the opportunity when presented to make another page! Janet contacted me earlier this week and asked if I'd mind creating a page as a Featured Member! HAPPY DANCE!
Click on my photo to the left to read my journaling.
The beautiful tree in the middle of the page was rescued from a school project my Dad had done. The actual board it was pasted to was crumbly and nasty. But, he had sketched up this amazing tree on what he called "trash paper" which is really thin almost clear paper and then used adhesive to stick it on his project. It was so old, it easily peeled off so I could reuse it.
I really love some of the elements I pulled outta my stash. I found these cute little folders that had originally came from Marilyn, a few Purple Pumpkin doilies and flower that were on a failed project (dyed one of them orange!), a little wood window I got on-line from ArtChix, a BoBunny ruler brad, and a fancy dancy paper clip from Helen's stash. Ribbon was passed along by Tink!The letters used ARE actually brown. I am frustrated as they didn't photograph well. They actually started life various other colors and I used StaZon Brown to fix them.
So, if you haven't ever done a CCG Challenge, maybe give one a whirl this weekend.
