How's your week going? Today I spent the day with about 200 Pre K - 1st grade teachers and Dr. Jean Feldman. We did a lot of singing and fun activities. I have the song "If your happy and you know It" stuck in my head. Don't forget about my blog candy. There are lots of new Magnolias coming soon....click here!
I got my new photo box. I am experimenting; I think it will take more practice to improve my photos.
I got the wooden beach sign at Michaels for .80 cents this weekend. The minute I saw it I had to have it and I was creating a design in my head before I left the store. First, I painted it with steel gray paint. I was going to use white crackle paint for the flat part of the sign but sadly it was dried out (rather disappointed in that as I only used it twice). So I had the idea to use the cheese cloth to represent netting.
A closer view of Tilda:
MiaMia the flamingo was stamped on printed Authentique patterned paper. I just couldn't bring myself to put a hot pink flamingo with this color scheme. Tilda's top was also cut from the same printed paper. I covered the letters with patterned paper too.
We can't forget MiaMia:
