Life is...

an unexpected, joyful, loving. crazy, most eventful, completely random, but so wonderful kind of thing!  Ok..won't chatter too much with this one...let's just say i was not entirely sure that i would get this done in time...and by hook or by got done!  Here is my entry for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show...

Here are a few detail shots:

Long story if...I am a huge Wendy Vecchi fan!  When I saw that this week's challenge was 100% inspired by Ms. V...well...HAD TO PLAY ALONG!  Some random tidbits:  I took a class from Ms. Vecchi last year learning how to make flowers from grunge (and used what I learned with this project)...last year I also completely randomly won some goodies after commenting on the Studio 490 blog (Wendy Vecchi's blog), one of those goodies was a scrumptious bit of paper by Jenny Bowlin...I used that paper for this project (it had never before been opened by my hands!) weekend (SCREEEEEECH!) I will be taking two more classes from Ms. V at my LSS!  I am SERIOUSLY excited!  WOOOHOO!  Anyways...enough random chatter from me!  Hope all is good for you!

Supplies: Paper - Jenny Bowling; Shadowbox/ATC holder - 7 gypsies; grungepaper and grungeboard; ink - distress ink peeled paint, walnut stain, old paper, fired brick, tumbled glass, faded jeans, wild honey, spiced marmalade, stazon timber brown; stamps - ALL Studio 490...wish i could remember all the sets!; tim holtz alterations - caged bird; bling - heidi swapp; pearl - queen&co; rock candy stickles; idea-ology - gears, game spinners, foliage, key, tickets, ornate plates; october afternoon - 3 kittens card;   making memories - key font stickers (can't remember exact names); I am sure i am leaving something off but it is entirely unintentional!
