FREE TO BE...


 Hi Folks! It has been way too long since I have scrapped. I have still been visiting blogs & galleries-just not scrapping. I think that is past & now have a renewed energy for it! I had to take a little break, however now I am happy to be back at it!
The inspiration for this layout is a photo of my son, Nick & daughter in law Stephanie taken in Maui. They work work work & have found that their place to refresh is Hawaii! They go every so often and just love the peace that Maui has to offer.
I used the Basic Grey Kioshi line of papers... the colors were perfect!


A Sizzix flourish was used to cut the flourishes. I still have my hand cranked Sizzix & no electronic cutting machine. I guess I am living in the Ice Age!!!

I made flowers using various dies & punches , inking the edges &  adding a drop of Scribbles for the centers. I also dotted the flourishes with the Scribbles.



Lastly, I stamped around the edges with Inkadinkado (whew I always type that wrong ) chandelier stamps-using the chain portion! It was just what I needed!

Thanks so much friends for visiting & hanging with me in my absence!
