JOY Frame

I purchased this frame from Joann's a couple weeks ago and here's what I came up with!

Paper used: Kamahlat (retired) and matching alphabet stickers
Stamps: Inspirational Sayings, Tag Tidbits
Inks: Noir PH, White Gel pen
Embellishments: buttons, florals, ribbon, scrapper's floss
I tried to take real close up photos but they blurred. Anyway, on the lower left and upper right of the frame I stamped Come Let us Adore Him, on the lower right is Peace on Earth, and on the upper left is Happy Holiday. I stamped these to be part of the background. I sponged around the J O Y then outlined them to make them pop. I really like the effect.

This weekend I joined KellyRae Cooper from Coolidge, AZ in attending the big Rubber Stamp Fall Fiesta in Mesa, AZ. We had a ball! There were 33 vendors (5 years ago when I attended I think there was double this) and we did a make 'n take at the After Midnight Art Stamps booth
(I will post this later). I met Kathy McGuire who teaches stamp projects on an AZ TV station and many of KellyRae's friends. We purchased some great "toys" and just had a ball! Saturday night KellyRae taught me an album she made at the Washington Angel Gathering last (?) month. Char Wilson taught it at the gathering and it is just adorable! Takes a lot of paper and when I get more embellishments on it then I will show the finished album (without pictures, probably). We also went to a huge scrapbook store that was having a "yard sale". That was hard on my plastic card but I got some great stuff for my Paper Wings secret sister and me!
So, I now need to get dressed and head off for Curves!

Please remember to vote tomorrow. Remember that Obama has a very pro-abortion and pro-homosexual agenda.
