Back to my Roots

It all began with a Stampin Up party. Although I use a lot of non SU images Stampin Up is still a big part of my stamping world. Its my primary source for ink and paper. I do have several new SU sets but tend to put them aside for no apparent reason other than lack of time. I tend to grab a pre-stamped image from the Wish Rak group or print out a digital images. Its not that I prefer one over the other it has somehow turned into my normal routine. I have been thinking of hosting a bi-weekly challenge for awhile now. Maybe it will help me create a balance between old and new, SU and non SU and stamped and digital. If I decide to give it a go you'll be sure to know.



Stamps: Stampin Up - Pocket Silhouettes
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, SU Afternoon Tea, Cream
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: 5/8 inch Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Pearls, Pearl Bridal Pin, Misc. Bead
