Ok - I know shoot me!

I can't believe I haven't had chance to post in so long. Why bother coming to my blog if I don't post often. I really need to get better but life seems to take over so much that I don't get it done.

What have I been working on I hear you ask? Well making a tutu - well to be more exact updating a tutu. This last weekend Eleanor performed her first ballet solo and she needed a tutu to wear. New tutu's start at about $250 so you can see why I preferred to use one that belongs to her dance teacher and just add some extras things. Here's a picture of the finished tutu - I forget to take a picture of the before.

Then here's a picture of her dancing in it!

So you can see why I've been busy now. I have had some time to play with my stamps but haven't made a scrapbook page since we cropped in January. The following card is one I'm teaching this month. I really like how the background piece came out. You use string and masking tape to do it so its even cheap to do. The colors are outdoor denim, indian corn blue and crystal blue - all are shades of the same blue family. The stamps are all CTMH stamps.
I taught the card for the first time last night and everyone had fun doing this. Its a fun cheap technique for making your own backgrounds and could be used on a scrapbook page as well.
Come to class this month if you want to learn how to do it. Check my website for club times and email me if your interested.
