Faux EMBOSSING with my Martha Stewart SHAMROCK!

Hi, friends! It's time for ANOTHER lovely Just Us Girls Challenge...

We're puttin' paper THROUGH it's paces, with FAUX embossing!

Our beloved, Andrea, has cooked up fun and INSPIRED us with
this fabulous p-l-a-y on... PAPER play... Check out the JUGS
for all of the details, including a link to a fabby tutorial!

In the meantime, THOUSANDS of apologies for my continued
slowness in catching up with my lovely friends! {I HATE saying
that, but GAWSH! Life is running me ragged!} Luckily, though,
I haven't lost hope that routine will return to "normal" soon!

This was SUCH a fun technique - a perfect way to let paper really
do it's THANG! I love, love, love the texture and shadow that is
created, combined with the delicious act of gluing cut shapes to
background paper and letting them SHINE! Such FUN!

I hope you'll take a gander at what the LOVELIEST co-horts
of Jug-a-riffic fabulosity have created this {and EVERY} week!


And please, check out, our wonderful guest designer
for the month of March, Marisa!

Simply sweet. And that rainbow ribbon is sending me back to some early '80s childhood memories, including a sweet li'l white heart pin with my name on it, above a rainbow that a friend gave me. I know what you mean about life staying busy. Hope you get to take a breath soon! :>
