Good morning and welcome to this month's blog hop. Boy, the months sure do zip by, don't they!
This month we're playing with Techique Tuesday's December Studio AE - It's Okay by Ali Edwards. I love all the word options in this set - they can fit just about any layout, AND - they'd make great cards as well!
For today's share I decided to pull together some pictures that my friend Stacy took of me when I invited her to come crewing with us this last fall. It's not often that I'm on the other side of the lens.
For the ups and downs stamp, I stamped it on a non-textured piece of cardstock, trimmed it out and then colored it in with colored pencils.
I did the same thing with the lifetimes stamp.
I ended up not being happy with how the journaling turned out here - my go-to black journaling pen came out too light on that red, so I retraced all my words, but it was still difficult to read. I then traced it one more time with my silver CM pen, but now it just looks too bulky and harder to read. I will probably end up redoing that portion. If I get it done today before I file it away I'll edit this post and add the updated version to the bottom. My kids, however, say we have to make cookies today since the snack cupboards are bare and they are anxious to pull out the rolling pins and make Christmas cookies. *smile* Sounds like it'll be a day well spent. I reminded them that I *will* be taking time out for this afternoon's tube concert however.
Nobody from my house ever wants to join me for the holiday tuba concert in the cold. Odd bunch.
So hey - Happy Saturday, thanks for stopping - and be sure to stop by all the other blogs along the way to see the great fun and variety that can be had with this set!
