A Little Faith

The Penmaker buys
our spring water from our local Giant Eagle grocery in gallon jugs that come three to a box. We generally get four boxes every few days this time of year... which means a lot of good cardboard going to waste. Our daughter Sarah takes some for her Ebay shop, but I pulled one off the stack and cut off a nice hunk to use for craft projects. I cut one piece about 5" high and 16.5" long. I scored it at 5.5" and 11" then folded it accordion style. Gave it a spray of Dylusions Black Marble ink, and created this...

Daughter Carrie (the 
one planning the kitchen remodel here) had also posted some darling photos of her youngest, Faith. I just had to make something with these and thought they would look good on an album, of sorts, sitting on her new black Ikea Hemnes bookcases.

Not a lot of embellishment
here, just fussy cut papers. I used Prima's Romance Novel collection, Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, May Arts ivory burlap string and a tad bit of molding paste with my CW Confetti stencil. I did the title on my computer, cut it out and backed it onto black chipboard. Used lots of 3-D foam adhesive thru-out.

Although I wasn't real
happy with the way the pink of Faith's dress looked on this paper, when I tried a black and white photo, it just didn't have that same punch I wanted.

The dove is a
Sizzlit Bird #5 die from Sizzix. The "moving" text on the RN tab is an Authentique Diction sticker.
The Penmaker and I
are both down with dizziness and general aches. A result from the change in weather, no doubt. I'll be by for a visit as soon as I can. Am really missing sitting at my Mac and my Kindle is not cooperating with me.
Have a wonderful Sunday, my friends!

This is adorable, Linda! And great minds must think alike, as I just made a accordion-fold desk frame myself this weekend. ;) Really love those sweet photos and love how you fussy cut them out. The banner is so pretty. Love the postage stamps, too.
Sorry to hear you two are not feeling well. The dizzies just suck. I got vertigo a couple of years ago, which has never truly gone away, so I know what that feels like. Feel better soon!

Sorry to hear you and the Penmaker are under the weather. Hope things improve soon. This little project is going to be a real conversation starter once it's displayed. That little cutie needed to be showcased. Hugs!
