no trip to Silver Dollar City is complete without a visit to the jail, trust me for at least a portion of the day we wanted to leave them there!
My Creation:
The Color Combo:
Products Used: printed papers-Sassafras Nerdy Bird; Artic Blue Tattered Angels; 3 round rubons-Basic Grey Boxer; red cardstock-CTMH Cranberry; yellow cardstock-CTMH Buttercup; blue cardstock-SU Not Quite Navy; ink pad - CTMH Outdoor Denim; spray-Tattered Angels Slate; lettering cut with Cricut using Gypsy and the Paper Lace Cartridge.

TECHNIQUE NOTE: I embossed the Cranberry cardstock using a Tim Holtz embossing folder with my Sizzix Texture Botique, the rubbed my Outdoor Denim ink pad lightly across parts of it, after that I got out my sanding block and sanded down until I could see part of the white core of the cardstock.

Also a big DESIGN TEAM WELCOME!!! To Leanne, Linda, Lesley, Michele F & Michele K! They became a part of our team last week, please give them a warm welcome!
