The Men!

This is going to be a quick post to share my LO for the DCWV May challenge. I played canasta this morning and I won!! This is the first time I have won 1st place out of 8 players! It was very exciting! Anyway, here is my LO. I am not sure if I like it. I had big ideas for using my glimmer mist. I made a mask with a cut from the Storybook cartridge. I got the idea from my friend Lisa, here. I love how she did her background and wanted to try it out. For my first attempt, I think it's ok. I want to try some other designs in a full 12x12 sometime. I used a Stampin' UP's very vanilla cs for the base. I started with Old Lace and then added Juneberry Wine glimmer mist on top. I am not sure you can tell there are 2 colors and this was really hard to photograph. I used DCWV's Black Currant for my pp, a Martha Stewart border punch, Making Memories alphas, & Recollections glitter chipboard. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I like the border accents. The tiny polka dot paper is cool. Nice page, some of my favorite guys!

  2. Nice page! Big congratulations on the canasta win. Way to go! : )
    I tried posting this earlier, but am having trouble with my server or something. Must be all the storms, hail, wind, rain etc up here on the tornado expressway.
