Well, I've finally got a few spare moments to upload. It's been a wild ride, getting a house ready to list with 4 homeschooled kids in it. We're not messy, but I did clear out about 1/5 of our belongings. Oy! What a job! We are in a small house and are really looking forward to moving. If... If our house is bought. If our offer is accepted. If... This will be our first time selling, second time buying. I'm so glad God is in control of all this, but I wish I knew the outcome like He does.

This is the cover for the blue star book I did as a sample for stamp camp last month. I love it. I really don't know whaich book I like more; the blue or the brown! I still have one book to go, and then our music teachers will all have this gift at the end of the year.

For those of you who are curious, Tim Holtz grungeboard looks like chipboard, but that's just about where the similarity ends. Grungeboard feels like suede and is maleable. The flourish on this cover is in a tighter swirl than it was originally. Grungeboard is not Xyron friendly - I think the texture resists the adhesive. I used Adirondak acrylics on it, and sprinkled with glitter while the paint was still wet - FABULOUS!!!
