Here's a layout I did yesterday, It's of Ralph and his Dad and Uncle, and brothers and sisters. Ralphs dad is the one in the dark blue shirt, This picture was taken a year and a half ago, he no longer looks like this he is now battling stomach cancer. IT's very sad to watch. He's already stage 4 This man is only 50 years old. It's just so sad.

Paper Makeup Monday Challenge.. on Tuesday!

Here's my card for Paper Makeup Monday Challenge which was to use transparent embellishments. I used some Vellum and made my wings pop of the page and look like fluttering.
This isn't a regular ole' card instead of scoring at 4 1/4 I scored at 4in and again at 4 1/2 inches making it book-like on the inside I took one of SU! long notes envelopes cut off the top and made a pouch. Perfect for a gift card, candy, or a PMS Stamp! I used my Aqua Painters and SU! Ink to color.

I'm entering this card also into the All Sorts Challenge blog which was to use White and Pink, I cant resist those girly challenges!!!

Have a great day!
