That's my youngest grandson, Kesten, who is just learning to crawl! He's trying so hard here.
And this is my oldest grandson, Parker, who actually started walking a couple of months ago and is now quite proficient at it!
Don't you think these hard working little guys deserve nice Valentines from Grandma? They'll probably either be late or cost me a fortune to send them on time. Sigh! Oh well! Better late than never!
I wanted to participate in the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #152 which is a colour challenge:
I was trying to use the Delicate Designs embossing folder to create a frame around the piece of Pool Party card stock, but it's a bit thick. I think it would work better to use just the inner part of the folder to make it more frame-like. It has a very pretty texture though.
The other thing I had fun with was dying the Organza ribbon, which is normally white, but I put it in a little water with a few drops of Primrose Petals reinker and it turned out so beautifully. I had never tried dying ribbon before, but learned how at our last team meeting thanks to my friend, Amy Jasper, who did a great demo for all of us.
