Sisterly Love

Hi all!!
I sure hope this works! I haven't had much time to spend in the Rubber Room lately. We are in the midst of remodeling the front portion of the house. I don't know what I was thinking 19 years ago, when I painted my livingroom and diningroom in a color that we thought was going to be a light peach color. It turned out to be more pink than peach. So, for the past 10 years I have lived with a pink livingroom and diningroom. Now, we've decided to paint the walls a cross between Bamboo and Brown Bag. Its the prettiest tan. I bought a tapestry to hang on the wall behind the couch which reminds me so much of our garden when we lived in England. I'll be sure to share with all of you once the projects get completed. I really don't want to do a before picture because I hate showing my life being so upheavel. We all go through it, I can accept that, I just don't want pictures of it! LOL

Anyhow, this slide show I am sharing today is what we will be doing at my next monthly workshop. I used CTMH's Mt Reflections Bella papers and the embellishments I made myself with the help of my Sizzix Big Shot and dies and my QuiKut dies. I even took my Hollyhock reinker and dyed the satin flowers. I believe I got the flowers from Debbie at http://www.reasonableribbon.com/. (Hi Debbie ) I made this photo cube for my sister. She knows something is up but she doesn't know what. But she frequents my blog, pretty soon, it won't be a surprise. So, SURPRISE Jo!!! I'll be getting this in the mail to you after the first of the month. Love ya Sis!!




Thanks for stopping by. If you like what you've just seen, leave me some lovin'! Hope you all have a terrific weekend!!

Inky Hugs,
Leanne

Great photo cute, Leanne! One of the best I've seen! Good luck with your remodeling. While the process is a pain in the butt, the outcome will be worth. Sounds like the colors will be gorgeous! Take care, friend!

Aunt Lea,
How absolutely adorable! Mom (Jo) forwarded the email with the link to your website. What a great idea. I used to scrapbook years ago, then life got in the way!
Thanks for sharing. Take care!
