My journey has ended

Well, I got news yesterday that I didn't make it to the top 10 for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol contest. I can't say I'm not bummed but I am still happy to have gotten to do a few rounds!

I want to thank all of you again who voted for me and took the time to leave such sweet comments wishing me luck! You're all great!

Here was my final card. The category was shaped Mother's Day cards.

I also finally got a chance to use a bella image that Juile sent me! I had to try out the sand like she had on her card. I just love the look of the real sand!

  • Beachabella (Stamping Bella), 1/8 inch snap stamps (Karen Foster)
  • Positively Pink, Cool Caribbean CS
  • DCWV Pocket full of Posies Mat stack
  • Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder
  • ZIG markers and aqua painter
  • stickles, sand, ribbon, needle, pop dots
I am still having a blast with my camera! I think I have decided to start a photography blog so I don't picture overkill on here! When I do I'll be sure to post the link!
