My Favorite Piece of Art

Look What's Around the Corner!

Has anyone thought about Christmas? It's around the corner! I went on Ali's blog and "BOOM" ~ they're getting ready for another "December Daily"! I had fun doing this. I started out with an acyrlic cover, put all my pages in with tag's, envelopes and embellishments. The point here, to put together the entire book before hand. When December comes, you start with "Day One" and go from there. It's all ready for you!(who wants to even think about Christmas? I have friends that start their shopping in August)

OPPS ~ Made an Error!

Ok ladies............I apologize, sorry Bona! Arlene, it was your Blog too that I was on lastnight. You are the one with the "Acetate" technique! It was in the mini that you made for your Hubby...........so if you both are reading this, I love your blogs! Sorry for the mix up! That minibook was awesome!

Awesome Work!

Happy Monday to all of you! Lastnight, I was on some GGS Blogs. I was so amazed and just kept staring!

These GGS ladies are so talented. I have to say I love everything they create. I get really happy when I see something new. A technique that I haven't tried. Today, I will do some inking and distressing on "Acetate". A cool idea from Bona's Blog. Oh, and I need to try and do some journaling tags that Hope has done in her "America" book, they are so beautiful. On Wheezie's mini ~ creating, or trying to do these folding thingys where they open out for journaling or photos. I can't wait to see her finished minibook. I hope I can do it, I don't really measure, I just eye everything. But with this technique, I better use my ruler on my trimmer.

From Wheezie's Blog, I saw at the bottom of her video where I could click onto more videos ~ I viewed a very beautiful minibook on "Laura Ingalls", the history, the pictures and every embellishment complimented this book so well. I would love to know who this person is so I can view her blog, there was no name, except for this: June GGS Part 1 and it goes into Part 2. She used her June GGS kit to create this fabulous mini and so much more. This mini was "thick". Meaning with all the pages and embellishments made for a bigger, thicker minibook ~ which I love. Ok GGS ladies, which one of you created this "Masterpiece"?

If anyone knows who created this book, can you please email me? velmagriff@yahoo.com

Thanks..............and I hope all of you are staying cool. This heating is really getting to me! Mmmm...maybe I should move to Oregon? (haha!)
