thaw challenge #11

this challenge was another recycle challenge. i recycled the negative from my pop dots! i used the april work in progress kit and the smooch is from queen*scraps.

i used smooch spritz in licorice! i placed the mask, sprayed and moved it over and sprayed again.
this is what it looked like after the second spray.
it just adds a little muted background detail.

have you been to the room?

that would be the color room!! it is a fabulous site, with amazing designers, and a super fun challenge of a color pallet!

these are photos of alexa between 2 and 3 weeks old. they just found that the rate of babies born premature has decreased by 3%. that may sound insignificant to you, but as the mom of 3 premature babies, it's huge!!! the march of dimes might be having a walk in your area, or a $1 fundraiser at your local market, if they are think of how the research they do has saved all 3 of my babies!! please support the march of dimes!
