Collage Press

Ya'll know how i love to alter so when i saw this challenge over at Collage Press, i jumped on it. i have been dying to use these journal spots in a creative way so this is what i came up with. plus, my FAVE quote! i don't know who said it but i am all about it. i want to carry this with me when all the parents are on their cell phones at football practice instead of watching their kids play, or when ppl are texting instead of driving. i get overwhelmed with frustration when i see the disconnect in our lives these days.

so this is what came out of that....

{the shadows this thing cast are amazing, LOL! every photo i took has a bit of shadow on it from the overhang of the frame.} each journaling spot has some stitching on it, even going off the page.



and a close-up:


Make sure you check out Danielle's blog here for a give-a-way {did someone say SLICE???} and this fun site called torendi -- it looks like it's gonna be cool!

Very cool, Ellen! And, you are right... I hate when people are on their cells during inapproprite times!

I know I've been scarce lately... I need to get caught up. My gram has been in the hospital and rehab from a new hert valve for 2 weeks so we've been traveling back and forth to Geisinger almost every day. Not gettin' much else done around here...arghh!! I can't wait for us to get together though sometime soon!
