Hallo there. It is such a privilege for me to be part of the CREATE team. You can read or download this free magazine HERE. I love the sketches and colour challenges that we are sent to play with. It is always so hard to keep everything under wraps until after the magazine is released. You can download all the free sketches HERE. Here is my take on the sketch that we were given to work with this month.
Supply list: Cardstock: American Craft; Patterned papers: My Minds Eye; Brads and enamel dots and stickers: My Minds Eye; Small alpha stickers: My Minds Eye; Alpha stickers: Doodlebug designs; Other: Silhouette Cameo.
My initial thought was that I would need Simple Stories papers for this...but then I just took the My Minds Eye papers and embellishments and cut everything to size.
Another challenge for the month was to take either a card sketch or tag sketch that was provided and make something else using it as inspiration. I used the card sketch and made a single page layout:
Supply list: Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Papers: Pink Paislee; Flowers: Prima; Felt heart paper clip: Making Memories; Brads, My Minds Eye; Quote: Kaisercraft; Other: Silhouette Cameo.
This week my man hurt a muscle in his shoulder when he nearly fell into the pool. He plays golf...so that makes it a "serious" injury. Last night while I was rubbing some Deep Heat into his shoulder I reminded him of the eight years that I suffered with Fibromyalgia. Eight years of unrelenting, constant pain. It took eight years to find the pain blockers that work for me...and I have now been pain free for two years. It is just by God's grace that I didn't fall into depression during that time. I am thankful for...
#122 ~ 5 little tablets each night that keeps the pain monster in it's cage.
