Scrapbook City site is down for the moment, which is a real bummer. Love to get some inspiration at the moment.
Here is my latest offering to the new album for 2007. Thanks to the girls on 123 Challenge for this one. No patterned paper, green, stamping!! God, they’re good!! And I got it in on time this month LOL!! Mixed green paint with Iridescent Medium. It’s a lot more vivid in real life – you’ll just have to visit to see!!
