I Will Miss

I saw this post Big Picture to complete a layout using 10 products, 10 techniques and 10 words.

Here is my layout

My 10 techniques are stencil, inking, doodle/outlining, punch, sewing, stamping, embossing, cluster, staple and splatter.

 My 10 products are metal clip, tag, stickers, buttons, paint, ink, flower, chipboard, felt embellies and twine.

My 10 words have to do with what I will miss each time Jen flies back to Phoenix.

I also did this for the Kraft Challenge at Scrap our Stash and the chevron challenge at Frosted Designs.

MME March Challenge

This month MME posted a challenge to use their die cuts, phrases, journaling cards.

Here is my layout. I love this picture of the kids from Christmas week. They were laughing over something as we decorated the tree. Since they are both out of the house, I treasure these moments when we are together!

I am Back but will be Leaving:):)
