Count down

Yes, the count down is on.  CHA is only a few days away.  I fly out on Thursday and return late Sunday night.  I cannot believe it is here already.  I feel so behind since I have had the inlaws and my sister here back to back – then followed by a 3 day migraine.  I really wanted to post some new project but time does not allow.  So here is a picture of a menu holder that I made for CHA Winter 2006 in Aneheim. I have begun to notice I have a thing for fluer de lis.  Not quite sure how to spell it though. The stencil was created on my Pazzles and then Delta Texture paste was used for dimension.  It also has a patina finish.

She is known for her distinctive, high quality creations that feature a diverse mix of styles and highly creative approach to even the smallest detail.
