Yesterday I made a video featuring the Straw Technique. If you haven’t seen this, please click HERE to learn more about making these backgrounds. Anyway, I was left with a couple of extra backgrounds and on one of them, I stamped images from Nature Walk. I actually prefer to use bolder images on these backgrounds, but wanted to experiment with line images. I decided to go for a collage look and I like how it turned out. The words stamped on the side are from the stamp set called Fabulous Phrases. I’m crazy about the font in that set . . . so pretty!


And, here’s another pretty in my life!! My daughter, Kari, reading over her acceptance letter to the University of Minnesota Rochester. We are so excited and happy for her. She plans to pick a major in the health care field . . . she has her eye on Diagnostic Sonography. She is very detail oriented, has an incredible memory and a caring heart so I am sure she will be a good fit in the health care field.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!! I appreciate you and always look forward to your emails and comments.
