Masking Background

Happy Summer Days!

I have been busy these past couple weeks...not just the regular summer chores of summer around the farm but donning a Nurse's cap for my husband. Unfortunately, he had an accident...going up against our John Deere and not winning. Luckily, given a bad situation, he came out very well. One piece of machinery knocked him over into the frontend of the tractor and demolished his orbital and cheek bones. He has his sight and is well on his way to a full recovery, not even looking so bad, having several stitches but in 3 or 4 spots not one big jagged cut. Such a relief, from the initial shock of finding him in the Trauma room in ER after dropping my Oldest off for a week long Band camp!

I'm just getting turned around with some of my card making and class planning. I have a few fun ideas up my sleeve that I need to play with, so I should be getting some neat projects on here over the coming days.
I have been working on the Capture Summer class. It's been lots of fun writing up the prompts and reliving some good memories as I draw on them to share with the class. I have gotten some great feedback that makes me feel so good. I'm going to offer an extension into the Fall...and part of it will include a couple lessons on the structure of some actual pages for the book.
I also want to put together an album from Convention! Looking through some photos earlier tonight. At some point during one of the party nights, I found myself amongst many of the top International Demos...
This is Bekka Prideaux from the UK. So many wonderful women around the world sharing this love of Stampin'.
One of the cards I was swapping was this pretty one using my very favourite set, Flower Shop.
I used the lattice and our spritzers to mask the background, and built it from there.
