Here are my April Inchies; Letter D is for Dream. It's hard to photograph these little gems without getting blurry.

Here is a layout I did for a challenge at my LSS. We bought the kit and had to use everything in it and could only add ink and chalk. I hadn't scrapped a page in so long, but now I have the fever again and need to get Savanna's scrapbook going. It need to be done for her graduation, which is less than a month away!

I wanted to try a few atc's with all my new Tim stamps so fired up my brayer, got out the glossy and here are the results! They look great in these bright colors from the Kaleidecolor pad. I will make more of these!

I needed some animal atc's for two of my groups and haven't done the Cracked Glass technique in a while so I used my deer stamp and colored and cut out and then applied versamark and utee and heated three layers worth, stuck in the freezer, and waited. When I took them out, bent enough to crackle all over and rubbed some distress ink into the cracks with a sponge. I forgot how much I like the results.

Finally had time to play with the "Stringing you Along" technique from TJ's latest newsletter. Made up these two atcs for some swaps I had to send. My 8-yr. old granddaughter, Victoria made me up a few more sheets with different colors so I can make a lot more now. So easy and quick to do. We used distress inks in various colors.
