Being Green

One thing I can say about organizing my photos is that I'm anxious to begin scrapbooking again.  I am SO far behind and when I look at the pages already done, it makes me want to get busy.   I've done three pages and laid out four more so I'm off to a good start.  I may have to slow down the card making (oh no!) and really concentrate on the layouts for a while.

But I do have a card for the CASology challenge.

I like their one word clue cards.  That leaves it wide open for your creativity to take hold.  What would your interpretation of green be?  

While making another card I saw this big leaf on the Life is a Beach cartridge.  Simple enough, right?  Okay, but plain green paper just wouldn't do.  Aha!  I have a glitter stack from DCWV.   Perfect.  You can see a little of the shine on the upper part of the leaf.  I used two layes of foam in the middle and one on the edges to round it out and give it some dimension.  Then comes the difficult part - sentiment.  I think I used this one once before but I like puns so I used it again.  Don't know when I'll use the card but I love the idea of it.

We had the US 27 car tour in town yesterday.  These oldies travel from Coldwater in southern Michigan all the way up to Cheboygan.  We just happen to be in the very center of the state (Middle of the Mitten, we're called) so they were half way there.  With three across, the cars took up three blocks of the downtown.   It's fun to walk around and see how they've been restored and reminisce about the first car you ever owned, probably wishing you still had it.  lol
