Happy Tuesday, all and one!
Say, whatever happened to these kewl Prima "Paintables?" They were popular for ... oh, say, 2 hours a while back, and then completely disappeared. I found this lone 12 x 12 piece in my stash, and decided to finally do something with it.
Using a Tim Holtz "Fragment," I lightly traced a square with a pencil. Then, using Distress Ink re-inkers, I water colored the details in the square and erased the pencil lines. I adhered the Fragment over the water colored square using Crystal Lacquer, tied on some twill and a scrap of ribbon, added four brads, and finis! So easy, even
I a child could do it!

So, this weekend, Sheila's family and mine attended the wedding of a mutual friend. After the ceremony, Sheila asked Reid-the-Wild-Child if he understood what he'd just witnessed.
"Yup," Reid answered. "The woman in the fancy white dress upgraded to a new man."
When Sheila asked Reid to explain, he replied "Well, she went down the aisle with an old man and came back with a young one!"
Hmmm ... strangely, the kid makes sense!
