Thinking of You

Long time no post!  Eeek.  Sometimes life has a way of getting in the way of the things I want to do.  I have missed blogging.  I have missed creating.  I have made a few things behind the scenes.  But quite honestly, I haven't had a chance to get in my little space and create.  You know the kind?  The opportunity to just play with all my creative goodness.  No deadlines.  No projects.  No kids.  No stress.

Oh, I never mentioned my in-laws 40th SURPRISE Anniversary Party.  That is what kept me busy through the end of September and the first half of October.  300 pictures.  220 photos used in a video.  About 100 photos printed, matted, and tagged.  Yes, LOTS of work for me.  So, hopefully I am somewhat back again.

I used a sketch from TE.  This was a few weeks back.  I came up with this idea and never had a chance to see it to completion.  Although the challenge is long gone, I still loved the concept and wanted to keep going.  The polka dots and plaid took FOREVER to stamp (mostly because I made 10 of these).

This is very, very pretty. I love the polka dots and plaid combination......but I think your blues and greens are what make me love it even more.

I love all of those floral images you used. They are great! I also like the colors you used for the plaid and dots. Very cool indeed!
