If You Want to Change Something in Your Life, You Have to Change Something in Your LIfe

Hello.  Welcome.  A bit early for philosophy?  Maybe.  The imminent New Year causes us to reflect on things past and things to come.  What do I want, where do I want to be.  Maybe I'm lucky and am where I want and should be.  Definately worth taking a little time to consider.  

Playing along with Jo Myhill again over at PaperArtsy.  Loved all of her projects this week.  Not time to do all but thought I try some elements from her first post 

I started stamping various images from PA Asian 2 plate onto tissue then stuck it to my base kraft card.  Too white.....

Some DI Vintage Photo and we are good to go.  Looking very distressed.  May have to stick it under a heavy book.  

I made my center panel with ripped card, an old bit of book (Legends of the Norsk Gods) and a stamp from LPC003

I haven't got moths so I went with the dragonfly again cut from three layers of card.  I used a stamp from LPC001 and clear UTEE

Man card!  Excellent.  Just in time for a spring birthday of one of my nearest and dearest.  Can't say too much, you never know who might drop by!!  I only used 4 colours on this project, DI Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain and VersaMagic Gingerbread and Jumbo Java.
