Wednesday Stamper - Children

Wednesday Stamper challenge, Children. I removed the glass & painted a wooden photo frame a pale pink. Then while it was drying I stamped a flourish on one corner of the glass. Printed my photo to the desired size (I'm the baby, on Mum's knee, Tracy my big sister sits beside us.), cut my paper to size & attached my pic & vellum quote. Once the frame was dry, I stamped flowers onto it in pigment ink & as they wouldn't dry on wood I heat embossed them with my favourite powder, Silver Pearl as it allows the colour to shine through. The baby glued to the frame was an image I found in a magazine, glued first to strong card. I added soft pink buttons to finish it off.
Then, I has so much trouble trying to upload to my blog yesterday it was a nightmare & despite trying twice & blogger saying no can't do, I have managed to use 3MB of my free space so clearly they have a problem & need to sort it out.
I am on holiday this week & so far nothing has gone to plan. I am a bit sick to the back teeth now!! The time I had designated for crafting has flown out the window, my head is empty most of the time, although I spent half of yesterday worrying sick about my appointment with the nurse. Thankfully it was good (ish) news. I have only one cyst now, half the worry!

Hi, Paula dear. Hope you're feeling better. So happy to hear from you and your good news. Hope that it gets better and better too, health-wise.

I always love visiting your blog. Your creations are always so delicate and gorgeous. I'm always amazed at everything you create since you never seem to run out of creativity.

Take care of yourself, and yes, it's okay to just sit and think and gather up the creative juices for the next project. Me, I just did 10 layouts in like 6 hours! But that was like after, I don't know, a 2-month slump?
