Hi all! Rita here!
Christmas??? in August - I know weird but thats all my baby girl talks about lately! Well, since her big sis (pictured in the lo! A long time ago) left for college. You see, baby girl knows that Christmas is the next time she will see her big sis and she misses her very much - in spite of the daily phone calls! lol!
So I guess it isn't so weird that I would post a Christmas lo in August..right?
This is a close up of the journaling...
These are my oldest kids, who are now 18 and 16!
It's amazing how quickly they grow!
The papers are Ta Da Creative Studios . The shape of the paper and Acrylic overlay is my favorite shape at Clear Scraps It is called the XL Deco and it comes in a two pack. This pic is really old so I wanted to protect it, the acrylic covers the base paper and the picture - the embellishments and title lay on top.
Here you can see the envelope closed with some quilling...speaking of which, has anybody seen my tool? I haven't seen it in weeks and it is driving me crazy because I really like quilling! The bling is Prima, the stamps Ta Da Creative, the chipboard is We Are Memory Keepers.
The ink is Dew Drops. If you are trying to figure out how to attach acrylic try Glue Dots. I just put them in random places that I know I will be covering later (with flowers or whatever); they work great!
