Design Team Image & other wanderings of my mind!

Well I used to have something in the "About Me" section on the right.  Wonder how I managed to blow that out??  This time I will save it in Word so that I don't have to rewrite it!  Guess I'll take care of that in a minute.

It's two days before Thanksgiving and usually by this time I am totally immersed in flour and other kitchen fun.   But right now I seem to be on a SBing binge and don't much care to do anything else.  BUT, since I am feeding 10 people I suppose I'd better adopt a different mind set!!

But I'll share these with you and then I am going to the kitchen, I swear!!

Karen at PIT challenged the design team to use the image above in a project and this is what I came up with.  It started out as an ATC but grew a bit large for that. The "Pages in Time" title is mounted behind a Tim Holtz fragment that I inked lightly with alcohol ink on the front side of the fragment.  Those fragments are kind of neat~ I just got them.  I put gold Stickles on the back of the fragment.  The little clock is actually a button from an article of clothing that I had long ago and the shoe is a Dress it Up button that I've had for a couple years anyway!  I inked the shoe 'cause it was too shiny.  This was one of those projects that I just kept adding too.  After I added the flowers I added the fiber to balance it all out.  Then I picked up the circle (left over from another project) and liked that look so I painted it with gold glitter paint and then I spied the piece of screening and mounting the whole thing on that.  I think it ended up looking a bit like an embroidery hoop on a piece of ladies veiling.  I have it hanging over my scrap table just as a bit of joy!

Then this morning I wanted to complete a challenge at PIT, New Paper Line challenge, using Bo Bunny Flutter Butter papers so here's what I came up with.  This is our 2nd home that we actually lived in for 6 weeks while waiting to move into our new house in NC and then dh lived in it for another 3 months before he moved into his weekday apt.  (He works away from home and is only home on the weekends.)  I love the blues in this paper line!
