If you can do this . . . .

I had intended to do a bit more on this spread, but time got in the way. This was a quickie that I made using a piece of cardstock, a used fresh garlic bag, and the image that came from a box a friend gave me years ago when she installed her new internet. With all the computer/internet problems I've experienced for well over a week, I thought it was about time I used the image. While I was gluing it to the page, I kept thinking "If you can do this, your computer isn't as misbehaving as mine!!"

I finally had time to make a few additions to this page. I was glad I had not posted the original post yet, because I wanted to show the additions. I added five clay hearts to jump rings and hung them from eyelet covered holes to the outside of the piece. I also placed the two hands from the push molds on the cardboard. I'm definitely more satisfied with this spread.

Click to enlarge the above images I scanned with my new scanner. I have to admit, it does a much better job than the other one with antiquated software the new computer refused to install.

not sure how I missed this post!
Great use of your rescued treasures and your hand charms are perfect too, "hand" spelled in beads makes a nice dangle at the bottom too!
You must be happy with your new scanner it did a great job!
