We have a new challenge up at the Sampler (scrapbookingsuppliesrus) to do a layout with your lucky charm. I used this fantastic piece of Dove of the East paper (it is almost too beautiful to scrap) from the March Sampler to showcase a photo of my son when he was in Italy. The round embossed metal piece is a Chinese good luck charm, and most of the embellishments came from the March Sampler (so much goodness!) - Jenni Bowlin buttons, Hambly transparency, Maya Road journaling card, and packaging from the Tim Holtz mask. I also used a few buttons from my personal collection - the funky tan and cream buttons came from Trinidad. Please join us in the challenge and show us your lucky charm, and check out the March Sampler.
Our azaleas are in full bloom right now and I will post some photos this weekend. It is sunny here but still not very warm - way below normals - but with all the rain we had last week, everything is popping. So many tiny fluorescent green buds and leaves, and lots of tiny lizards etc. Yesterday afternoon we had a flock of ibis eating in our yard, and it was so entertaining to watch the squirrels and ibis eating so close - the ibis are so tall that they ignore the squirrels, but the squirrels will start barking at the ibis if they get too close - so funny!
Hope you have a great day and a super weekend, and thanks for reading.
I am trying to finish up several projects before the end of the month and don't forget the Mini Crop tonight 7-12 EDT at Scrapgal.
