More Tattered Angels/Graphic 45

This month Tattered Angels and Graphic 45 are mixing it up once again. You will defiantly want to check out the Glimmer Mist blog and see all the Gorgeous creations the DT has been posting. My projects will be posted on the 19th.. but here's another peek at one of mine.

This a 8x10 canvas ( but I decided a few years ago.. that working them backwards is most fun)lol I flip my canvas over and work from the back side. I love that this gives you a wood frame all the way around.
I used Sandy Beach 60430 Glimmer Mist, for my background color on my canvas. As you can see in the photo below.. I spray it on the wood inside edges also. As for the G45 paper line.. if you hadn't guessed .. this line is called "Domestic Goddess" lol


Today my nephew and his wife came to down to visit for a couple of hours. I met them at moms and the four of us had a nice little lunch at the diner. Super cute place huh?

I had some running to do. So after leaving them , I got a few things checked off my list of things to do while I was in town. I have been looking for a new pair of black shoes... finally.. I think I found some that are comfortable and cute. YAY!

Tonight I pulled out the suitcases and "started" putting a few things in .. so I'd be ready come Friday morning. I'm looking forward to next week in CO with the Tattered Angels girls ...just been alittle worried about leaving Aly pup.. concidering all that has been going on with her. No change at this point , and she is still on the antibiotics.. so nothing more can be done for a bit anyway. She is acting fine like nothing at all is wrong. It makes us just want to wish it away and for her to be fine. Dan loves her as much as I do.. so I know he will take good care of her while I'm gone. I'll keep you posted after we see the Vet when I get home. Please keep Aly pup in your prayers. Thankyou!

I've been working on some Christmas Cards using these Crafty Secrets "Christmas" Creative Scraps. I'll share them tomorrow.

Christmas??? eeeek.. it's sneeking up quick huh.
I wont be one of "those people" who freak "me" out every year by saying ... "did you know there are only __ days left until Christmas?" lol
Why do people do that? Just to see all of the color fall from my face. lol
not good
