Another crafty weekend

I got to go to a crop this past Saturday with the usual crowd plus a few. Seems like everyone has plenty to work on after the holidays. Even the kids got a lot done. This page I did as a kind of challenge from my friends. One was going on about using these buttons since they are really old from EK success. Then they started teasing me about how I use the Bubble wrap scraps for my painting so I decided I would also incorporate some of that. This page was the outcome of all their taunting. I stamped on the buttons with a script stamp from "The Stamp Man" and used grey Dylusions paint with the bubble wrap to add some texture. I also added some paint around the edges. The flowers are Prima and the Letters are from American Craft. The papers are from MME.
The pictures are of another one of our Fosters Maddy who was only with us for a few days. We are currently fosterless now as we wait for a new furry friend to temporarily join the crew. Lexi went into a trial adoption over the holiday so we are still waiting to hear when that is final. That was hard because Lexi was really special and since we were away we did not get to say goodbye. She will always hold a special place in our hearts. It was a tough decision not to adopt her ourselves but if we did we would have to give up the fostering as 2 would be enough to handle and our house is tiny. So we made the decision to continue fostering. I find the older dogs so much harder to part with than the puppies. Although each one is hard in its own way.

Back on the crafty front. Not much else accomplished this weekend. Just a few DT projects and a lot of Chit Chatting throughout the day on Sat. Sunday I finally got to hook up with my crafting Pal Anne from the UK on Skype. We have been trying to hook up for quite awhile now but never seem to be around at the same time. It was so nice getting to talk and catch up . I also got to talk and catch up with another friend Sandra and her girls from our old Village in England. Sunday seems to have become our skyping day.

Well that is about all to tell for the moment. Got a lot of work to accomplish today and tomorrow so I had better get too it.

Thanks for stopping in and have a lovely day. Angela

Gorgeous page Angela, don't think I could foster a dog, as I wouldn't want to let it go.
