Challenge Inspiration: Caroli & Sandi!

This is my last challenge as designer for The Paper Variety *sighs* It's been such a great experience, I learned lots and had the opportunity of working with these awesome ladies. Thank you for creating this space Abby and Suz! :)

Sooo, I wanted to make something really special as a final project. The instruction was to make anything but a layout or a card, (that means out of my comfort zone) and the first thing that came to my mind was this idea I had since long but never seem to find the time to carry it out. I altered a canvas with a picture of our little girl as a present for my fiancé.

The design is quite simple; I misted the canvas in two colors and then added few hexagons and some random stuff layered on the top. Some lettering and voilá. I really enjoyed making this project, actually I'm working in another canvas with a pic of my finacé, this one will be for me :)  You can see more closeups and details if this project in my blog, hopefully you'll get inspired to participate with us in this new challenge!


My hubby and I recently took a wonderful trip to the Florida Keys and I decided to make a Smash book to document the memories.  The awesome thing about Smash books is all the writing, doodling and little souvenirs you can include.  I am really having fun completing this book.

Here I added the corrugated cup holder from Panera Bread which was our first stop as we headed out of town.  Check out my blog, Slightly Off Center for more photos.

This is my last post as a DT member of The Paper Variety (sob!).  I have served 2 consecutive terms and this DT has been a big part of my life for nearly a year.  It has been one of the most positive experiences I have ever had.  Suzanne and Abby are wonderful to work with and I have made friends and been unbelievably inspired along the way.  Thank you Abby and Suzanne for giving me the opportunity to serve.
