Alphanumeric Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome to the next stop on the alphanumeric blog hop!  Can you guess my Letter?  Mel thoughtfully gave me the letter "L" to go with my name.  She didn't even know that my husband's name also starts with an "L."  So I thought I'd do a page to celebrate our likeness in names as well as other similarities and differences with all phrases starting with an "L" verb.

I started with this photo where we made a forward and backward "L" by sitting with our legs stretched out in front of us.  I was really tickled with how it came out.  Only three takes with the self timer - which was good because getting up and down off the ground is not as easy as it used to be :-)

For Lenny's title "L" I used a piece of designer chipboard that had a green leaf print on the front.  I tore off that print, stamped, embossed and chalk inked my own design on the backing to go with all this Fancy Pants paper.  My "L" is cut with the Cricut.

The flower is misted and stamped muslin.  I used some Rose Red ink from Stampin' Up in a mister with a little water and it worked fine.  I've had it laying on my work table forever so was glad to find it a home.

Almost everything on this page is from Fancy Pants Road Show collection.

Thanks for visiting!  My blog is mostly scrapbook pages and cards with the occasional quilt project thrown in.  I'd be honored if you wanted to follow or subscribe.  Happy hopping!
