Another Top Tip Tuesday Challenge


My 450 followers candy is here

I'm sharing a link to a very good cause with all of you today.  LaJanette, by Top Tip Tuesday friend and colleugue had a relative named Susan who is battling a very vicious sort of breast cancer.  This isn't something I ordinarily do, but I've felt moved by the plea and I know that I would love to receive greetings if I were as ill as Susan.  Also, because one of my dearest friends LaJanette has been such a wonderful inspiration and a terrific follower and a treasure to work with, I feel it is the least I could do.  Susan is in a difficult battle with cancer and could use some cheer so if your drawn to help, this is the link I was asked to forward you to.

Please direct people to http://patriciagrc98.blogspot.com/2012/04/cards-to-cheer-up-susan.html

Our challenge this time is "Dig out the Old"

On to my project for the day:


Challenges entered:
Inky Impressions - Lace and Trim
Waste Not Wednesday - use your forgotten stuff


I used, for the first time, an image from the sponsor Nicecrane called the "Beautiful Ladies".  I've altered a journal that I've had years now.  I've given it an antique look with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and pearls along with an intricate beautiful butterfly to add the garden feel to the book.  These pre colored images are Vintage, elegant and extremely easy to embellish!
