It was a hit!

The kids were very impressed after looking around the new school although that could all change tomorrow when they actually have lessons there! Matthew decreed it was "awesome" and "radical"!!! *methinks the boy doth watch too much trash!* Jess hasn't walked very much today but has been climbing up on my chair and emptying my bookcase of it's cardmaking magazines. The sooner I can get her crafting the better! I hadn't managed to do anything today until the past half an hour when I actually got a card made from start to finish and used a Chatterbox tag that has been in my stash for at least 3 years (another one of those things that I loved but didn't want to use).

I used: DCWV cardstock, paper from Kay Miller's Allorganic kit, Chatterbox tag, K&Co sticker, Prima flowers, velvet ribbon and gemstones.

Lovely card. I love the layers and the sewing. I have been sewing on things lately and just love the extra dimension it gives.

HA -- go Jess, rummaging is SO fun! Especially if it's Mummy's stuff. I'm glad to hear the boys were impressed -- radical is pretty high praise around here, too! Lovely card -- one of the REAL PERKS about keeping a visual journal is that if I find something I just can't bear to part with, I can 'give' it to myself in the journal! [is that cheating? I don't care!]
