Handy: Hands for my AB

I leave you this Friday before the long holiday weekend with two more sewn sides in my Hands AB.

Pockets on both sides of this spread will hold tags yet to be made. All images are from magazines. I love those scraps of double sided scrapbook paper, although they don't show well on the scanner.


All images are from various magazines or junk mail, as well as a bit of security envelope. Click either pic to enlarge. Have a lovely three day weekend everyone.

Today's blog is by another Kansas gal, Tess (Teresa M.), a frequent commenter here. Tess lives in northern Kansas, while I'm in southern Kansas. She recently showed this cool technique called paint-overs. Although it's not her own, she has taken it to extreme heights. Her blog, The HeART of Words, also contains photos of flora indigenous to Kansas, as well as a healthy dose of ATCs. If that weren't enough, she is a poet and a Producer for the Associated Content community. She documents living and dealing with her daughter's brain tumor (now successfully removed), as well as her bouts with asthma. She also own three cats! So, I hope you'll welcome Tess today.

Hey sweetie, Thanks for the intro...I feel very special and loved seeing my name on another blog. I got excited and called hubby into the room. He says I'm gonna be famous. What he doesn't know is we both already are. LOL!!
I love how you are using the security envelope window on your journal page. Now why didn't I think of that. Great idea....
