thank you for your friendship


Wahoo! I stole a little bit of time tonight to actually play along with Dawn McVey's color challenge. I have been wanting to play and this was certainly a challenge! :) I decided to use patterned paper for my colors, so off to my stash I went. (something I should do more often). Thanks for the fun Dawn!! :)
thanks for stopping by!
Supplies:
Cardstock-Bazzill, Papertrey Ink (True Black)
Patterned paper-Scenic Route (Appleton, Grafton), My Mind's Eye

Like the new background? I am playing around with my new photo tent. LOVE it so far, but need to learn a bunch more! :)
