October visit

Every October my parents come to visit from Maine. Their visit is at an end, and they head home tomorrow. We will miss them.

I made the following page for my mom to take home with her (next month is her birthday):

I used a favorite photo of my mother's that I took at the State Fair this August. I also used September's Studio Calico kit Glee Club. Lots of happy colors on this one.

I played around a little with punches, specifically the EK Success Swiss Cheese punch, which I haven't used enough:

I also punched little bits of patterned paper using a 1/4 " circle punch to fit in some of the holes; other holes I filled with gems or brads.

Just for fun, I added some random cross-stitches, which are a current favorite accent of mine. I also "in-lined" the letter stickers with a Zig Millenium fine gauge pen to make the letters stand out more.

I've been working hard on two things: some design work for GCD Studios, and grading papers. I'll show you some other smaller projects I've worked on this month in the next week.

Coming soon: A trip to the October Afternoon Warehouse Sale, plus a giveaway!
