filial: adjective

of, relating to, or befitting a son or daughter
 having or assuming the relation of a child or offspring

Have you missed me? I certainly have missed you!! I have been sooooooooo very busy since joining 3 DT's and business is picking up again at the Art MoB now that winter is over. On my desk today is a mini album that I tried to sell last fall, but maybe it will get a better reception earlier in the summer. Plus, revamping it it with some prettier ribbon might help...crossing fingers!

I made it to the top 3 finalists for designing a wooden book for Genuinely Jane Studios, would be honored if you would go visit there and cast your vote for me...( I designed the camera. ) I REALLY , really need your vote!!
Now for more fun stuff I entered the sketch challenge for NSB day:

And a close up of my lay out:

Little Yellow Bicycle:
cork background - Making the Grade
dark brown woodgrain paper - Acorn Hollow
light brown striped paper, chipboard shapes, sentiment words, Fresh Verse - Fern & Forest Boy
canvas butterfly sticker, cork sticker letters - Naturals ( colored with distress stain )
Clear cut - Saturdays

I love how 5 different paper groups merged so well together, mixing them up is the best way to get the most use out of your stash!

I love that the canvas stickers can be colored in but since I needed both orange and white to balance out the lay out, I only added a tiny bit of color.

Here, I did darken the cork letters with distress stain so they would show up better against the light colored backgrounds.

I mixed in some chipboard banner pieces that I wrote on with a permanent marker along with the Fresh Verse so I could make a sentiment.

Ranger - Vintage Photo distress stain
American Crafts - Slick Writer
Faber Castell - PITT pens
Really Reasonable Ribbon - twine

Really, really lovely scrapbook page honoring your MOB beginnings. Nice book, too. The ribbon may be all that was needed to change this book.

Happy WOYWW. I have no number, yet, because Julia is still asleep.

Hi Sandee,

LOVE the sign about being in the ART MOB! Especially the paint brush. Oh, but the banner is adorable. How fun!!

I have some canvases I'm thinking of painting over..... recycle and reuse! I bet your mini album sells!

Hi, Sandee, glad to see you on the WOYWW list! I went and voted for your book design. My family and I will likely be visiting the Hendersonville area sometime in late June -- I see that the Art MOB is just around the corner from the Mineral Museum -- if we make it into town, maybe I'll have a chance to check it out. I'm so glad it is bringing you happiness. :) ~ Laura #107
