Another Reject

Greetings from sunny Florida! We are here…like every other Midwest spring break family…for fun in the sun. We aren’t visiting our favorite Disney this time, but spending time with Mimi & Bopie…my parents…in Bradenton, playing in the pool, going to spring training games and general all-around relaxing. Since I’m not at home, I thought I’d share some of the rejects from some magazine calls I have.

This one is from the Go-To-Sketches call Paper Crafts had a few weeks ago. The circles are all stamped and heat embossed on White Metallic Shimmer paper, then I used the resist technique to have them match the Baha Breeze background. It’s cute and shimmery in person…take my word for it…
