Still here....

Wow I cannot begin to tell you what a crazy month this has been. I am really hoping October will be much better. As I write this I am once again fighting a sinus infection complements of the fall weather and wonderful allergens in the air. Time has just seemed to get away from me with the start of school and start back at work along with all the other daily trials and tribulations.  Today was the first day I have been in my craft room in I don't know how long. Of course I had to put everything away because I left it such a mess then just piled atop it for the last month...It did feel really good though to get inky once again.  

This week over at TIOT is the next challenge for the month and the theme is lots of layers. I had started this a bit ago but only got as far as stamping a few images and gluing the book pages together. Today was the day to finish it up.

I loved these fairy stamps when I saw them and wanted to do something whimsical. The background is layered with torn book pages , stamped acetate images and gesso. The outer frame is pattern paper by Basic Grey. the butterflies are also stamped and colored using promarkers. 

Now if you head on over to TIOT you can see the rest of the teams wonderful projects and enter yours. Can't wait to see you there. 
Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day. Angela
