~ WHOOPS-A-DAISY ~ and A FAMILY REUNION.....

I did a lot of edge distressing with Hydrangea ink instead of the usual choice of brown or black distressing ink. This is a CTMH planned workshop and all I had to do was follow their directions and add some ideas of my own. I love being a consultant for this company!! They make is SO easy to learn new techniques.
Please let me know what you think of my pages....













Here are 2 page layouts of our family reunion using Close To My Heart's colorful Whoops-a-Daisy paper. At first, I thought this paper choice would be too colorful for my layouts, but I really think that this paper pack along with the embellishments I made with the matching inks just make these pictures "pop" in a nice way.



All supplies used are CTMH products.

Hi Barbara. Thats some 'mean'
distressing you've done there. Mine turns out either OK or a complete disasster, no happy medium.
I've nominated you for an award. Check my blog for details.

Just stopping by to say hello. I've been having computer problems the last two-three weeks. Sometimes it 'would' sometimes it 'wouldn't' Hopefully we are all sorted now (apart from the fact I've lost my photo downloading suite) and I shall be able to visit more often. Hugs Heather xx

Hi Barbara
Terrific LO, I love the vibrancy and I am loving your blog and intend to visit at least weekly from now on!

I am thinking of starting a closed blog as a meeting place for us sisters. Do you have any thoughts on this? All feedback welcome ;)
Thanks for all the kind comments on my blog
