A little about me…

Jul 31, 2008

Since I had so much fun meet­ing and get­ting to know peo­ple at CHA I thought I would share a lit­tle about myself while work­ing on projects for my first book dead­line. Well a few days lat­er Mrs. McDon­ald had me come up to her desk and asked if she could enter my piece in the State Fair art con­test.

Wendy’s stamps are large cling mount­ed stamps (I think there are 24 all togeth­er) and she has a real­ly cool clear album to store them in when not in use. Oh and not only was she debut­ing her own stamp line, she was also doing demos for Ranger using Per­fect Pearls which now I have got to start using cause they are so cool.

We used pages from sev­er­al of the many Maya Road Chip­board Coast­er Albums, placed one of the cut sheer sheet tem­plates on top of the chip­board page, sprayed the Maya Mist Orange on top (hold about 6″ from the page for best over­all cov­er­age), removed the Sheer Die Cut Sheet and sprayed the Maya Mist Metal­lic Gold on top of the masked chip­board page.

I thought before I left I would share one last post show­cas­ing more new Maya Road prod­ucts.

These are great to inter­change with their Square Scal­lop Chip­board Album.

The but­tons run all the way down the front of her skirt and look so pret­ty when the light hits them. I think the lit­tle bird rest­ing on some moth­er of pearl but­tons looks as though she is telling a few of our fam­i­ly secrets.
