So good to be creating!

I made it through April 15 once again and have had a few days to rest today was creating day!  This project has been sitting on my studio desk for some time now totally unfinished.  I sat down and put the finishing touches on it and found a picture for it today.  Can you believe this frame cover is all made from paper?  Cool....right?
I got the Verday Paint from Technique Tuesday a long time ago and have just now started to play with it.....believe me, there will be a lot more projects to come using it.  I love the way it looks in the end.  Right down my alley - all distressed and aged.....LOVE it!
The flowers and leaves are cut from white cardstock (if you can believe that) using the Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge.

I've got another frame using the same product brewing in my mind, so be sure to check back to see what I've come up with!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

A bit of pampering

Yesterday after a long day of tax preparing I decided to pamper myself a bit and get my nails done.  As I was sitting there I thought how much better I felt with nice new shiny nails....which led to my remembering a post my friend Melissa had recently done about "the most important thing" journaling technique which then led to me thinking about this layout I did using that technique right after I had my nails done once......funny how one thought leads to another isn't it.

These pictures, unfortunately, aren't clear enough to read the journaling, but it talks about how the most important thing about nail day is that it makes me feel whole again.  I did this layout 7 or so years ago, but it is amazing to me that "nail day" still makes me feel whole again!
