Sorry! Sorry! Been under the weather with a cold. Hank's naptimes have been turning into my naptimes. Not that naps are a bad thing, I'm a HUGE fan. We've got this nice comfy couch in our bedroom that beckons me to lay down and doze whenever I walk by it. I've been giving in. I think it's helped the cold, as it seems to have come and gone in record time, with only a cough remaining. Watching Hank and Matt like hawks in case they show any symptoms. The news really kinda freaks you out with all the H1N1 stuff. I should know better than to buy into it.
Any who, still have a few projects here and there despite everything. Nothing seems to delight my grandmothers more than photos of their great-grandson in the mail. He is a charmer. (Although, he's becoming quite the stinker as well. Anybody got any recommendations for child behavior/discipline books for toddlers? I need to tame the wild Midgee. And perhaps cocktail recommendations for mama to get through it all?)
So, I started with this negative frame for my Silhouette and copy/pasted/separated the inner frame from the main image.
Then I overlaid the inner frame on this photo holder, sized to hold 3x4 photos. This is the stuff I was talking about earlier when I said you can separate elements with Silhouette for the ultimate in creative control.
And this is what you get. Easy peesy.
Things just wouldn't do without a matching card.
I wanted bling in the holes of that loopy border, but that is like a whole metric crap ton of gems. Instead I used a hole punch and backed with glitter paper. How I LOVE glitter paper. American Crafts has a nice selection!
Supplies: Stamps: Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink; Ink: Papertrey Ink; Punch: EK Success; Die Cuts: Quickutz Silhouette; Metal stud: Colorbok.
What else? Hmmmm. I hear there has been some commenting issues. Are all the old CK message board problems following me here? Maybe it is me?!?!?! I have my comment control completely open. Anybody got any advice?
And...do you want a pee in your pants laugh? Can't believe this actually happened. I'm still chuckling about it.
