Tea for Two...

This is my take on Case 191 over at CSI ... I am thrilled to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for the Month of March.... hopefully I will be "up-to-snuff"..!! hee hee
These are some photos of my best friend and myself many, many moons ago. I feel so fortunate to have her in my life... we know each other's hearts and share so many memories together.. I am truly blessed...
Hand drawn hearts/frames and lots of fussy cutting, too....
Come and join in on the fun... you will find tons of inspiration and challenges always help to get the Mojo working...

Cuddle Buds...

This is my take on Case 190 over at CSI... I have to say that I really struggled with it...I wanted to try a little mixed media and found myself WAY outside of my comfort zone...!!
Also..... if you are going to gesso a page....you need to know that gel pens do NOT work on it...wow what a mess my journalling was!! hee hee
I may have to tweak this layout a bit more before I submit it.. but after working on it, off and on, for 3 days... I need to put this puppy to bed.... ( and get out of my PJ's, too) LOL

The only products I used other than my Ziq water color pens. my distress inks and gesso..
was a older stamp from 7Gypsies - Ink+Friends- #7G1069 and two Tim Holtz Stencils - THS007 Burlap, THS008 Stars...and two embossing folders from LifeStyle Crafts - Tea Party #EF-0013, Tide #EF-0020

Hey...it's MY thai!...

My Son D'Arcy and his wonderful partner Phil sent me these great photos from their fun day at a Thai Food Festival in Yonkers, NY last summer..I couldn't fit ALL the amazing pics of ALL the great food on this page.. but I  can tell ya, I was mighty jealous!! hee hee

Lots of older papers ( some I fussy cut for the flowers and mason jar), alpha stickers and a sunburst embellishment from my stash...

I placed the journaling in a pocket on the back which states:
    + Beautiful weather
    + Great company
    + Wonderful Food
    + Lots of exciting new things to see and experience
    = The Perfect Day.
