"Over hill, over dale to Grandmother's" (July 20, 2016) Not exactly a mixed metaphor, because these two phrases are not logically incoherent. They just seem to represent other times and places, not the one I have chosen for them. I used two small images and piece of torn paper bag for this scene.
"Food Fare" (July 21, 2016) I put three examples of food and drink together using a single staple. This one was easy, albeit very unbalanced.
"Face the music" (July 22, 2016) A play on words and images resulted when I stamped the face and added the sheet music.
"Take Flight" (July 23, 2016) My friend Kathy gave me a ton of these butterflies she cut from a punch. She said the secret was to find colorful magazine images and punch away. I just gave them flight.
"Balancing Balls" (July 24, 2016) A hodge-podge of washi tape, ribbon, colored circles, and a punched bird make up this humorous final card for week 8.
Squiggles, who got a big head last week when he felt like the star of the show, and I want to thank you for your continued support of this two month project. I am always grateful for your visit.
