Yippee!! I made it through week 1 of Bad Girls Top Designer!!! So here is my class 2 LO.
We had to use a least 2 types of printed paper. As usual I went overboard:):):) But "to thine ownself be true" right? :):)This design has been in my dreams for awhile now and it feels so good to finaly have it on paper! I love quilting and wanted to encorporate it into my scrapping, so I made my own victorian crazy quilt! I sewed tiny pieces of paper and fabric together to make this mini quilt. What fun to not worry about 1/4 inch seams and precision cut pieces!! This was very liberating:) I used alcohol inks on transparency for the leaves, crackle paint, glossy accents, embossing, lots of stitching and distressing! The Prima peach and blue flower is from my dear friend Karen, aka Scrapoholiker! (Thank you Karen:)This photo was taken 6 years ago when we were a family of 3! It really was was perfect day! TFL:) take care!

Jamie, my friend. Please, PLEASE let me know you are alright, and you received the ATC I made for you! I know how busy you are and I've tried not to bug you, however,
I am worried you are sick, or dead, or even worse...your ATC is lost in mail.(sic)
Perhaps, you didn't like it much, even so, please let me know if you got it. Luv to you, Trudy
