Just spent 3 days at CKC Valley Forge. I'll be posting class projects and reviews all this week - still have to finish some of them!

But Guess What ?
Every year, at the Friday night crop, they ask participants to make cards
to go to our service members overseas and they make a contest
out of it. You have 1 hour to complete any card of your choosing using
the card stock base that they provide - this year it was orange.

 I won first place!
I guess I can't say "I'm not a cardmaker" any longer. :)

My daughter went up later and took the pictures with her phone so please excuse the quality - she's only 11!

I had no idea what I was going to do. Especially as orange is one of those colors that I don't use often. But I had just picked up the Fancy Pants Love Birds collection pack at a clearance sale. The banner design on the front of the card was cut from a sheet of the paper and then I cut additional triangle from another sheet and used pop dots to add dimension to the card. I had a random paper doily in some supplies I brought with me and the sentiment was also in the collection pack.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cape May - FtLoS

This week at For the Love of Sketches, Donna used the cover of the Beatles Second Album for the sketch inspiration.
I have received a bunch of old 1970's photos that were taken with 110 film and their quality is not great. I scan and reprint all my photos. Photos from a hundred years ago I have no problem with changing the size but these photos shot with 110 lose quality fast! This layout was a fantastic way to get a bunch of these photos grouped together. I'll surely be using it (or a variation of it) again.

Thanks for stopping by!
