Catch Up ~Rusty Pickle~ ~Two Chicks Designs~Everything in between





Hello everyone I know it has been awhile I can hardly catch a moment for myself here. I was in Utah with all the Rusty Pickle girls and what a blast we had came home to two sick boys and a messy house. It has taken me this long to post anything. I made this for my secret sister at the Rusty Pickle retreat. Pamela Young was my secret sister and received this frame of her family. I had purchased the frame at Michael's for 4.99 in the wood section and used the Rusty Pickle Mayflower collection to decorate. I inked and used Tim Holtz crackle paint...love that stuff!! The alphas are Quickutz and the hearts are some wooden hearts I have had since the 80's...(i know) The bingo card is Jenni Bowlin, Prima flowers. Had lots of fun making and really enjoyed giving to Pamela. I will be posting more close up pics on my blog!! http://creationsbydawn.blogspot.com/

You have been very busy!!! I love it all. The frame is pure genius! I love it!!

So glad you're back! :) Hope the boys are feeling better. Tobias is getting over an ugly bug too :( It sure was nice when I was able to breastfeed him he never got sick. He's been sick twice now since stopping.

Love your work as always and I look forward to your blog updates!

forgot to add...I giggle every time I come to your blog..."flip flop and pop tarts" is a very cool name! AND I'm reminded that this summer I learned they are called "flip flops" not foot flops...I have called them that my entire life!

Beautiful layouts but I have to say your altered frame is amazing! Absolutely beautiful. I laughed though that you have had the hearts since the 80's it must be a trait with crafters as I never get rid of anything either! Wnderful work as always!
Hope your boys are feeling better.
