I put this together yesterday to go with the journal I made a couple of weeks ago. I really enjoyed the process of this, it was all made with found materials...true scrappin! I thought that the altered journal needed either an easel to go with it, or a box to store it in, so this was the result of that. I built up a platform inside so that the journal was raised up, used modge podge and it gave the paper a wonderful waxed feel. I trimmed the edges in gaffer tape (love that stuff) and it covered the rough edges of the cardboard nicely. This all goes to the recipient this weekend...hope he likes it!

Wow! It seems like we blinked and 19 years have gone by. Ron is still as wonderful as the first day we met, and I'm so blessed to have him and our two precious boys in my life. I cannot imagine life without them. We had such a nice date last night and actually had time to talk cause we left the boys with my parents for a couple of hours. Here's the card I made for Ron, he loved it. I used my new Nestabilities, they are going to be a great addition to my supplies.
Just for fun, here's a link to a YouTube video about Two Peas. Enjoy!

Here is my latest layout. This was so fun! It's about Ron's grandpa, and his wonderful sense of humor. If you look closely at the photo, you'll get the joke. I loved using Graphic 45 paper on this, it has the look of men's pajama's, don't you think? The swirls are inked chipboard, diamond glaze and glass beads, my new favorite technique.
