*Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time.....* :):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....


Thanks again for all the well wishes...I am still not feeling good at all....might be time to head to the doctor! :):):)


I made this LO for the latest challenge at Scrapbooker's Anonymous! The challenge was to use rub ons and NO pattern paper!! OUCH!! That was hard!! I loveeeeeeeeeee my pattern paper!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And the title of my post.... welllllllllllllll... I used REAL LEAVES on here! I used Mod Podge to get them on here...and then added more Mod Podge to the top....and the reason I say "It sounded like a good idea at the time".... is because Mod Podge and card stock don't mesh too well together! LOL! The paper started buckling and it left a shine on the paper...that I tried to cover up with Shimmerz!! Ohhhhhh well... the end result looks good... it just was touch and go there for awhile! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)










And some reminders! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


Don't FORGET about my big NIKKI SIVILS follower GIVEAWAY!!! See all the deets here here here here! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And I am guest designing this month on Category Stories....and if you play along with that challenge and get picked as the winner...wellllllllllllll... you CAN WIN A GUEST DESIGN SPOT ON FAVE THINGS!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


Thanks for stopping by... I appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  23. LOVE the LO and the idea to use real leaves is awesome. I have thought about that too when Fall first started and there were big beautiful undamaged leaves on the ground. For some reason Mod Podge did not jump in my head as a way to preserve them. I will have to give that a try sometime. :-) Thanks for sharing!!
