Not quite what I was thinking.....

Remember that embellishment I told you i misplaced and was looking for the other day? Well I never found it. I was looking for a Prima metal/resin lamp post that would have looked perfect in the jacked layout from Julie over at Scrap Jacked. 2 days and several stores later I settled on a new stamp of a Lamp post instead. I embossed it using Obsidian Copper Moonglow powder and then double layered it on pop dots. Not quite what I wanted but it worked. It will drive me crazy until I find that piece now.
Here is the completed page. I am so happy I got to complete another jack this month. You can go see Julies original over at the Scrap Jacked blog. I made mine a bit wider and of course with different embellies but same idea.
Here is the top bit and title on the page. I did manage to find some fun jewelry bits on sale while I was shopping around for another Lamp Post.

The actual journaling on the page(yes I did journal this time...Go figure)reads:
Walking down Main Street just my Daddy and Me
Has really become quite a tradition you see.
For each time we visit Magic Kingdom Park,
Mommy always takes this photo as we start.
I journaled it in gray pen at the bottom of the page but the flash washed it out a bit. It looks better in person.

Now Maybe if I get a hurry on I get get another jack done by the end of the month. that would be a record for me lately. Fingers crossed for the predicted snow tomorrow.

On another note. These are my lovely flowers given to me as bulbs from a friend at Thanksgiving. I planted tehm and they just bloomed. Aren't they pretty. Such a nice rarity to have in the winter.

I love the bright red and they are huge.

Well now I have to go get ready to get the kiddies from school then go to work. I will try to get on later after work to do a little blog surfing and leave a little blogging love. Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping in.

Hi Angela - Thanks for the comment, but yours is pretty amazing, too - shame you couldn't find the lamp post, but it's fun improvising. Julie's was a GREAT LO to 'jack', wasn't it:):)
