French Manor on Canvas ~


Busy busy weekend plan!  How about you?  What do you have planned for the weekend?  Well all I have to say is...that I'm so glad it's Friday!  I just wanted to do a quick post of what I made for my DD's room.  She loves all things old and french.  I have never played with modge podge,  so I wasn't sure how this would turn out, but I think it turned out ok.  All that matters is that she likes it and she does!

Made by Momo is having a challenge ~ #12 Just Because Card

Hi ~

I just saw that Momo at Made by Momo was having a Tuesday Challenge.  Usually because of other things going on in my world, I don't participate in this one.  But today I had little time to do a quick card!  I just love this paper with the From my Kitchen cartridge, I think it looks retro like the images do.  (sorry picture is dark)

I've been drooling for the Imagine on HSN!


Did you get a chance to see HSN launch the Imagine?  It's really an awesome machine, and I was surprised by the price change.   Even so, I'm not getting least not for a long time!  I still don't have a gypsy!  Which I'm hoping to change that in the next few weeks!  Well back to the Imagine, I wish that they would have shown more of the projects, there were some really cute ideas!  PC's design team is really amazing!  Now back to reality!
