Time to Distress!

Lovin' the Distress Inks by Ranger -- yea Tim Holtz! Used the inks to try some reverse embossing with the butterflies (saw the technique by Gina K. on Stamp TV). Love the look. Also just recently bought a 'dandelion' stamp -- adore how it looks stamped and embossed over and over across the blue background. These techniques would really dress up a scrapbook page too!

News and pages to share

It has been so long since I've posted. We've been on such a roller-coaster ride with my mom's cancer, radiation and chemo treatments. As of about a week ago, we've gotten biopsy results showing there are no more signs of cancer!!!! Praise God! Tripp celebrated his 3rd birthday (oh my goodness, I can't believe it!) I feel pretty settled in at the 'new' house, Joe is enjoying and working hard at our new church, and I'm looking for a job! Anywho, I have actually been working on some pages (some a lot longer than others), and found a video demonstration on how to make 'washer' necklaces. So, of course I rushed right out to buy the supplies to make some (very inexpensive I might add). I think they turned out really cute -- I've worn one and it really wasn't as heavy as I thought it might be. What do you think?
