I wrote up a little tutorial over at the Hambly blog if you would like more in depth description on the how to. This idea has loads of potential for other home decor items, fun cards and scrappy projects as well :o)
Happy Easter Friends!

This card was made using a stamp set from Recollections that is very cute. Just a simple black silhouette on cute patterned paper and tied with tulle and twine.
If you are interested in a fun impromptu blog hop, head over to Damask Love where Dr. Amber is up to it again!

Not much going on around here besides crafting constantly and attending Chloe's Senior banquets and such. Last night she was awarded an MESA scholarship and tonight is the High Schools awards banquet, we are so very proud of her and how hard she has worked.
So weird to think that this fall, now that Tyler is home and Chloe is graduating, we are going to have 3 students up at the University of Utah. I can feel my wallet getting lighter already, lol!!

Thanks for your patience with me not having posts up for the last week either, I took a much needed break after creating about 75 different types of projects for varying deadlines and such. My brain was kinda mushy, so the timing for a getaway was perfect when I got an invitation to a very dear friends wedding and she just happens to live close enough to my sweet aunt Bev who had been bugging me to come and visit her and my fun cousins in Mesa, Arizona. Sunshine, friends, fun, lots of relaxing and plenty of good food gave me a wonderful recharge. Now I am back, ready to take on the other stuff that is on my plate. Amazing how good a little recharge on the soul feels :o)
And now with buds on the trees signaling that Spring really is in the air, it will be nice to get a little recharge from our own Utah sunshine by spending some time outside hiking, walking and playing some tennis, yay!
