Here I am back in Sevierville, TN, at our semi-annual scrapbook retreat at Whispering Winds. The last time I was here I had to drive up in January during a terrrible snow storm, but this week has been gorgeous for August. Not rainy and not too hot. There are only 5 of us up here all week, but some others are going to drop in here and there for a day or so. I have worked on a scrapbook for our trip to Hiwassee, GA, with our two daughters and their families, but all the pictures aren't printed out, so I couldn't finish it. For the most part I have been doing cards. We have a Stampin' Up consultant up here, and an former Anna Griffin Design Team member, so I've really learned a lot of new techniques and made some new cards. I've taken a picture of one of them, but it's not very good. I'll try to do a better job tomorrow. The card I've posted tonight is a 3D rose. I cut 4 different layers of one rose and pop-dotted them to make the flower dimensional. Then to make it a little fancier, I glittered around all the petals and then outlined the matting with Perfect Pearls. You can't see the glitter very well, but it really makes the card.
Oops! I didn't mean to post two of them. Oh well, enjoy. I'm going to bed. Judy
