Achievement is the Power

   
Recently a dear friend of mine, My Cup of Tea, AKA Poetry in a Pot of Tea sent a gift of Gelatos to me. I have never worked with them before, but have always admired the work of those who use them and have to admit that I had a lot of fun playing with them. Thank you Shawn!





Over at CSI we have a fun challenges this week. I enjoyed working with the colors and finding evidence in my SBR. Thanks, Debbi, for always giving us something wonderful!

I hope everyone is just as excited as I am about the lovely chipboard prizes this month from 2Crafty Chipboard. Thank you, 2 Crafty for the plethora of gorgeous chippies (above) that one lucky participant at CSI will win! 

Now, back to the layout that I did about my amazing son, Lee. He recently graduated from the university with a degree in biology and our family is so very proud of him for his accomplishment! 


Recently, a dear friend sent a box of Gessos to me, saying that she knows how much I enjoy experimenting with new media and techniques.  I have to admit that I  had a ball with them! I used them on two of my Valentine cards this year and this was my first try at using Gessos on a LO. The colors are so bold and fun to play with, AND the paint stick goes on nice and creamy and can be manipulated in different ways.....Love, love, LOVE IT, Shawn! AKA: MiCupofTea. Thank you! 


In the photo above, it is a little easier to see the gray vs. the tan. Unless you use a discerning eye, they are pretty close in their appearance. That's why I had go include this photo of the two adjacent to each other.
