Hope It's Not "TOO" Shabby!

As much as I love the shabby chic look, I don't think that I do it well. However, I absolutely love this Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie paper, and after all, it DOES have a lot of PINK, so I thought that I'd give it a try! LOL

This is a 8 1/2 x 11 scrapbook page that I made for my friend Kim. She is such a great person, and I'm so thankful for have gotten the chance to know her. Well, this was for her 40th birthday, but if you know me, then you know that rarely do I have something like this done on time, SO here it is. Late, but better than never! :)

I distressed the picture (a lot, maybe too much?) with a sanding block and then sponged on some Distress ink. I used the Boho Blossoms set in the bkgd, along with SU!'s Linen bkgd stamp for some light pattern on the green layer. I also inked all the paper edges. For the sentiment, I used the SU! stamp set, Friendship Flowers.

It has been a REALLY long time since I've scrapped, so I hope that she likes it! The picture was taken a year ago at last year's StampFest. I stupidly didn't get one from this year! :(

Well, I get home today, and I'm sure that I'll be DYING to see my guys when I get there (I'm preposting this :)) Hopefully, sometime soon, too, I'll feel like getting all inky again! I'm so exhausted, I can hardly think of it, but things should be dying down as of next week. Therefore, there's a light at the end of the tunnel! I think! :)

Till later...



  1. I'd tell you how much I LOVED meeting you and think you're a blast and too much fun, but I have to MINGLE!!! (note that I actually left a comment on YOUR blog; did you know that I have one, too? No, I didn't think so ... LOL!) : ) Hope you've made it home safe and sound and hugged that little boy of yours. Can't wait to see you again! {{{Kirsten!}}}
