Today, I have a layout for April's Stack-a-holic Challenge at DCWV. This is my favorite picture of Mom and I. It was taken at the Amarillo airport. The horse in the background is one of the famous painted horses you can find around Amarillo. The journaling reads:
Mom always said, "We have two choices when difficult things come our way. We can choose to be miserable, or we can choose to be happy. I choose happy!"
Mom now sits at the Master's feet. I miss her.
I used DCWV's Botanical Beauty stack to create my layout. The stack is all double-sided cardstock with gold foil on many of the sheets.
To create my title and journaling tags, I printed them from my computer onto vellum.
When printing on vellum, you must be careful not to let the ink smear before it dries. Mine dried in about ten seconds. I planned to only use vellum for the title, but I thought I needed a bit more color to this layout so I ran the vellum through my Xyron Sticker Maker and adhered it to a piece of the cardstock.
The deadline is now passed for entering a project this month, but you can still vote. I would appreciate it if you would vote for my layout, or any of the other entries you might like better. You can find the details on the DCWV, Inc. page on Facebook.
Thanks so much for stopping in. Check back with DCWV at the first of the month for May's Stack-a-holic Challenge.

Happy Birthday, Simon Says Stamps
Today, I have a card for the "Happy Birthday Challenge" over at Simon Says Stamps. They are celebrating their 9th Anniversary this week. So excited for them!
I don't usually use ready-made stickers, but I won this flower sticker in a kit from Spellbinders. It's so pretty that I had to use it for this card.
You have plenty of time to join in the fun before a new challenge goes up next Wednesday. Here's a link to the rules.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I appreciate the time you spend here with me.
