Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Start Where You Left Off
Don't get me wrong - I'm not afraid of new beginnings and sometimes new beginnings are the place to start...and, I also believe, that sometimes starting where you left off is another way to move forward - to learn something new. I left off in the craft room the other day with a layout similar to this one (with those adorable crabs). So, when I entered the craft room today, I decided to begin my journey where I had left off and to see where the road would take me. Here's the end result!
I added some background stamping with the Define Your Life stamp set (a huge favorite of mine). I stamped in Barely Banana ink onto Barely Banana card stock (will be sad to see Barely Banana retire at the end of the month..sniffle, sniffle). I took the adorable hostess set, It's The Thought, and went crazy with these turtles! I decided they couldn't make the journey alone - they needed to be together :) So I used my stamp-a-ma-jig and piled those turtles one on top of the other :) I colored them with markers and added some dazzling diamonds to make them sparkle! The round tab punch added a nice touch with the word "journey" stamped in Old Olive ink. Finally, the gorgeous striped ribbon...watch for this one in more colors with the new catalog in July! Yeah!!!!! I hope you like it...now, where did you leave off before coming to see my blog? That might be a good place to start :)
