Gingersnap Recipe

No, not the cookies--it's a crafting recipe, of course! 


Today on the Gingersnap Creations blog, Shar is featuring the month of June's Blue Moon recipe challenge:  3 papers, 3 buttons, 3 words.  I " threw in " with the entrants when I made some ATCs for a swap (meaning I had not signed up to do this as part of my Ginger art examples).  I purposely made one to fit the Ginger challenge.  So here it is again because last time I posted it for the swap info. I hope you click on this Gingersnap link: GCSP08 to see all the wonderful recipe entries.  Not a cookie, but still a treat! 


This ATC uses the Crafty Secrets paper that I won from the flying uicorn store.  I used two patterns from the Classic paper pad.  I created a third patterned paper by stamping music with a Red Lead Paperworks stamp, Red Lead  also made the "handle with care" stamp and the female image is from one of their collage sheets.  Links to these places are on my sidebar.  


You may have noticed my new blog look for August.  I'm still posting fairies and ballerinas but they were competing with the ballerina blog background.  Just too much visual bombardment.  So I'm picturing this breezy room sitting on the ocean somewhere on the east coast--a lovely summer retreat for my August projects--coming soon.  In the meantime, I'm envisioning this lovely woman, retreating to a friend's summer place to contemplate the scars of love.
