The Weekend and Soccer Junkies

This is the book I made for Teresa Collins using her Welcome Home collection. Beautiful papers and the Burgundy Petaloo flowers looked just great with them.

I used Tombow brush markers to add red accents to the papers and a golden brown to the inside of the letters. I like the contrast.

The Chipboard pieces were really fun to work with. You can leave them black and white, or add a bit of color. It's your choice.

Stickles light up the chandelier for a bit of glitz.

This is on a craft accordion book that was just the perfect color to go with the Welcome Home collection. The smaller flower in the Mulberry Street Tyedye collection above has Stickles on it. That's the sparkle effects you see. There's a bit of Tim on the clock, he's always there somewhere.

I'm just going to say this and move on.....WE WERE ROBBED!!!! OK, still don't see the foul on the winning goal for TEAM USA!!!

Good game, and we're still in it.

Brit is coming down for the weekend. So I'm taking some time off to see her this weekend. Her Grungeboard bracelet took a bath, and well, it just needs to be replaced. Tell a teen you need to take things off once in awhile!

Have a great weekend. And "Don't forget to Play". I still haven't shown you that bracelet yet, have I?

Oh, I got 2 extra Texture Plate sets. Seems I ordered some, bought some at Scrapbook Friend'z, and ordered the same ones again. Think enough of you out there would want to have a giveaway of these? You'd have to have an Embossing machine to use them, or you could go buy one if you didn't have one!!!! Ha!

Let me know....they're just sitting here, still packaged up, needing a home to play in.

I'll try and play this weekend but have to teach a class tomorrow!
Glad I'm not the only one who buys more than one of things! LOL.

I think you were robbed too, and the less said about England last night,the better.
Your accordian book is gorgeous, I have always wanted to do one, but this is just amazing. Love those Petaloo flowers.
I reckon you'd find lots of people who'd love a giveaway (me, me!!) I once bought two of the same stamp - on the same day..... well, it was a nice stamp!!

Sorry, I can't think about soccer right now, too upset! I would rather think about those extra texture plates you have that might need a new home? I'm sure I could make them very happy...

Hi Linda. This is my first visit to your blog. *Ü* I have been admiring your work and this book you have made for Teresa is absolutely beautiful. I'm sure she will be impressed. I LOVE black and white - and red together - very dramatic and has a great impact. TFS. ~Glen~

I love your work, Linda. You always offer loads of beautiful inspiration in your work that you share. I would love to play with the texture plates as I have a Cuttlebug. Thanks for the offer to share.
