Back Home Early from CHA...

Well the weatherman told me to get my behind back home before the blizzard begins. I arrived at O'Hare last night just as it started snowing...light for now 1-3 inches... but getting heavy later today (blizzard warning). So here I am... waiting and wondering how long we might be socked in!

Sooooo CHA… did you all see the peaks we put on the HERO BLOG and on the Hero Arts FACEBOOK? Did you see the Basic Grey? Here's a quick video... wish you could see everything in better detail…sorry!


I did a scrapbook page for the Silhouette booth, I haven't done a page in so long, it was fun to get my sea legs back.  Here's what I did...used a fun picture of my niece Courtney and went with the feel of her artsy, fun personality.


I cut all the pieces using white cardstock, colored them with distress inks and then stamped (the frame).  For the little flowers with long stems next to the picture, I left the blossom area white and added Rock Candy Stickles.


I love cutting out beautiful words... I think the "Everyday" on this page adds so much just colored in black. 


There are four Silhouette elements in total... the letters COURTNEY, the frame, the flowers and the big EVERYDAY word. Hope you like it!

Have a fantastic day!
