Looking Back and Looking Forward

Today's project is not a sneak peek, but a fix of an oopsie on sneak peek #6. The background of the wall hanging didn't look good with the brown ink I chose that blended right into the burgundy color. I prefer to not throw away things just because they didn't work...I believe "it's all fix-able."

Looking Back: Crystal and I took our first cruise together in November 2006. At that time, I made up a board book of our cruise. Today, I started a wall hanging, that will end up in a small easel (can't find it right now).

Looking Forward: I will be taking my next cruise with Crystal in the beginning of exciting!!

I finally pulled out my Spellbinder Wizard Embossing and Die Cutting System and started playing. I'm so in love with the Flowers Impressabilities, I haven't touched any others yet. That's what I used for the background and flowers up top. I used the Reece cardstock pack and Brown cardstock. Ribbon is also Reece (in real life it matches). Flowers are from the Audrey Embellishment jar.

Yes, I'm addicted to the Antique Copper hardware. Everything has been distressed with Burnt Umber and/or Burnt Sienna Palette inks. Paper flowers are punched with the Extra Jumbo Flower Punch (1 1/4").
