Stationary Set

One of my needlework groups meets in the summer and we have a nice dinner out. This is the door prize. All one has to do is attend in order to have a chance at winning. I wish the colors had come out better in the photos. I gauged it by the brown which is pretty close to looking like it really does. I haven't been active with any of my scrapbooking/cardmaking groups lately as I went to see my sons and their families. It was a wonderful trip and I came home exhausted with tons of stuff to catch up. So now I am caught up and thought I would share this with my super duper followers! I probably will also put it in my lists or whatever Yahoo calls them! I started out making two of these and colored two Tildas. I love this image and think it is perfect for what I made. The other box didn't get to have Tilda at all as I goofed up so many times it just didn't seem possible to make that many mistakes on one project!! So I am saving the other Tilda for something else. She is even cut out! I am not so enthused with cutting images out now that I can manage to stay inside the lines! I do need to give credit to the two people who posted videos and instructions for this box. One is Splitcoast Stampers (Beate Johns) and the other one is Dannie Graves (she has a pattern on her blog).They are almost identical but I did use both of them. I would like to thank them just in case I could get lucky enough to have them check out my stuff!! I wish I could remember whose paper this was as I adore the animal print!! I actually bought it at our one and only local scrapbook store! I do not usually pick pink for anything but it just jumps out at you when you look at the paper, hence the pink accents (ribbon, roses). So here are the photos - there is so much going on here that I did take more than usual.

I have gotten to the point where I am ready to pull my hair out!! Last time I posted it went so smoothly. They must have done something to "make things easier"!! Sorry that the photos are all out of kilter. Guess you can just zoom up on them if you want. Sorry. As for Copics:
E00, E11, E31, E33, E37, E53, E57, R20, R29, RV10, RV13, YG67, B0000
Please let me know what you think. The lace is a Martha Stewart lace punch. It does have a corner one that goes with it if you want to do the punch around the page. Hugs to you all, Barb F
