Bittersweet day..

Today is my last design team post for My Paper Crafting and I must say I am a more than a little sad. Melin and my fellow DT members are wonderful and I'm going to miss working with them. 

I'm even more sad since my card didn't turn out as well as it could have and I didn't leave myself enough time to fix it properly. I have been having some major lack of crafting mojo issues lately so decided to let the cartridge do the work for me. This is the first time I've used my Art Deco cartridge and the top is a little wonky. I guess I'm going to have to play with it some more. There are many layers on some of these cuts so the card front is very thick (9 or so layers on this one). I like the overall concept, but I will definitely play with it more later to see if I can get it to work correctly. The papers are a combination of DCWV and stuff from Tuesday Morning. The button is from my stash (it matches better in person). The really great thing about this particular cut was that there was a card base to match. I cut the whole thing at 5" which is the smallest recommended size for this cut.

Today they announced all of the administration changes at my county's schools and one of our Assistant Principals is being moved to another school. I will probably end up giving this to him (or one similar to it). He has been at my school since I started there and he will be missed.

It seems to be a time of change in many areas. Things will change at work and they are changing at My Paper Crafting as well. It is part of life but that doesn't always mean it's easy. Thank you to all of my DT peeps, and a special thanks to Melin for allowing me to be a part of this wonderful group! Have a great day everyone.

  3. Awww, Lynn I don't do well with changes either. :-( But know they are part of life so I try to roll with it as best as I can. I am going to miss this design team as well!! Now for your card, I think it looks great!!! I have been admiring this cartridge from afar for a while now, and the more I see the more I am really liking it! Wow, that is a lot of layers but it sure is worth it cause your card is fantastic! Hugs!
