ART with Glimmer Mist...ahhhh

Thought I'd share another Tattered Angels project with you today.... along with some fun photos. I enjoyed the process of this simple project.. and I love the color contrast! Something about mating vibrant colors on black is just so beautiful to me. I've always loved the look. These alphabet letters are new from Tattered Angels.(available soon) Aren't they fun? Like all their other alphabets ... 3 parts to each letter piece , all embossed with cool designs, and all self adhesive!
My sister gave me this cool floating frame for Valentines Day. I'll be changing it out alot ..but for now I have these between the glass pieces. You know how photos just don't really show off things like you had hoped.. well trust me.. the Glimmer Mist colors that are blended on this are AMaZiNG!! ...oh.. the Glory of the mist. lol
Okay.. I HAVE to show you this darling photo that Kyle (Kyle and Wendy are the owners of Tattered Angles) posted on facebook of their girls, Ally and Kaitlyn. They are just the sweetest little girls ever. We got to be swell buds when I was there staying with them in Colorado in November. Ally sent me her school project "Flat Ally" to see if I would let it visit Nebraska and send it back to her after a little look around Nebraska. I took photos and made a little album about Flat Ally's little vacation, send her. ( oh.. and of course an outfit for it) lol. I altered these colored pencil cases for both the girlsies with their names on them.( we did alot of coloring when I was there).lol
This photo made my day. CUTE!

It was a pretty busy day.. as it was the official "Grand Opening" of Amy's scrapbook store in Fremont. "Precious Treasures Scrapbook Boutique"
( I don't know about anything else..but I can tell you Miss Amy really liked those BIG ribbon cutting scissors!) But then again, what true scrapper wouldn't? ha
I thought it was so sweet that Amy had her family cutting the ribbon with her.

The Chamber members gathered for the Ribbon cutting..... and a table full of delicious goodies Amy was serving.

Everything is "Over the top" with this girl. lol

I'm talking ... WOW!

The presentation was amazing!

I did some Crafty Secrets Make and Takes and had fun creating with the girls throughout the day.
Congratulations Amy.. thankyou for bringing your wonderful store to Fremont!

Okay.. "The Office" is on.. my jammies are on, and my feet are up... so later gators. lol

Oh how I WISH that we had a store like that here. All the big boys shut down here & most of the little ones too. DARN I used to love the getting together to scrap. You are a lucky girl to have such a wonderful shop & friend. Hope you are starting the thaw up there. Saw the announcement for Scrapbook Convention in June & thought about you. Are you coming? Hope so. Hugs Charlene
