Look who I brought home...

I finally found some time to glory in one of my favorite pasttimes, thrift store stalking. I love to find that one beautiful object to add to a collection or complete one. I found little Ollie here at Thrift Town. He pulls double duty as a bank and a natural pick me up. How could you say no to a face like this? (FYI-My husband gasped and asked WHAT is that thing!?)





























I was up LATE last night working on this project and one other which I will divulge later on in the week. Just a little notebook to take with me to Creating Keepsakes Convention this Thursday through Sunday! Yippee. There's five of us going and I think it's going to be a rockin' time. "Life, live it, record it, treasure it" The big chip letters are by Li'l Davis and the big flower is a die I used at our local scrap store. I just have to give credit where credit is due on the photo effect. I met Tara at scrapbook.com a WHILE ago and she always does this amazing trick with photoshop where you duplicate a colored layer, desaturate the top one and then cut out the top layer over the eye so the color pops up from underneath. It makes the eye so dramatic. Thanks Tara for the instructions all those ages ago. Check out her blog, her work is amazing.
