Hi all - I went to Scrap Mania at Archiver's on Saturday night. 6 hours of fun, including eating, coffee drinking, shopping and crafting. I went with a group of 6 so there's always a lot of visiting too. And helping each other - Sayo, who has been mentioned in previous posts, needed help with a scrapbook for her son so I made 2 pages. Also made some cards, including this one for my sister's upcoming birthday:
Mind you, when I left Archivers, the sentiment was just a white circle and there was no birdie on the ellie's back. By Sunday morning arrived, I was busily changing things. Don't we all do this?? I scrapped the white sentiment for the orange patterned one then decided to turn it into a flower. Stamped and cut out the leafy stem from the Watercolor Petals (CL431) clear set.
Hmmm - something still was missing so I decided to add the birdie (from CL276 So Sweet, a valentine set). I stamped her on a scrap piece of light purple HA layering paper stamped with the Hello Luscious grid (not very visible in photo). The birdie had a lot of heart plummage which I cut off since I already had some hearts on there. Decided to stamp the musical notes (from CL354 Let the Angels Sing Christmas clear set) after the thing was all together - the birdie is me singing! Vicky over at Lily Pad Cards does this all the time, so why can't I?? Well, you can see why - my inky fingers put a couple little spots on the ellie's back - boo, hoo. Oh well, those are his battle scars... Other than the extra ink, I'm happy with how this turned out.
Thanks for stopping!
