February CKC Members' Blog Hop

Welcome to my little corner of the world!  We hope the kit you have created using "Across the Miles" as your inspiration has kept you busily scrapping this month.  We offered 3 challenges to keep you motivated:

  • Using Clear or transparent elements
  • Using a date stamp
  • Using an unexpected title
We also welcome any project or page you've created this month.  We're cool like that!  We just want you scrapping with that kit you've created.

For my share today, I used the vellum map paper (clear or transparent elements) I forged as seen HERE.  I wanted to reserve this paper for something really, really special and what better occasion than when I had the opportunity to meet my fellow Master Forger, Lisa!

Take a look:

It is a bit tricky to use this sort of paper as I couldn't imagine cutting it apart and I wouldn't want to cover too much of its beauty.  Utilizing a narrow band through the middle seemed to be the best compromise.

So thankful that Pam captured this moment.  It truly makes me smile.

Some heartfelt journaling about our friendship.  I know many may not understand how an online friend could be "real", but this one is the real deal.  I am blessed to have such a wonderful friend in my life.  

Here is the entire list for the hop just in case you get lost, but your next stop will be Gemma.  Be sure to visit her and all the talented scrappers in our line-up.   We would love to know you've dropped by!
Thank you!
