Happy Friday everyone. My days are all messed up because my son is on Spring Break here. So everyday seems like the weekend. Know what I mean?
I participated in today's Free For All Challenge 6. Today's Challenge is to make an Accordian Book. This was my first attempt at making one of these and I am so happy I did. I love it.
I got to ink up this hot new release BLOOMING WITH BLESSINGS from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.
On the front, I used the new Labels Twelve Spellbinders Nestabilities I got from Clear Dollar Stamps and chalked the edge. On the inside I chalked after stamping. I stamped my large butterflies on separate paper, cut out (leaving a small white edge) and popped up inside the "praying for you " butterfly with dimensionals.
