The Polls are closed!

IT is over! I tell ya, working the polls for an election is not the easiest thing I have ever done. I am pretty good and fudging my way through most creative ventures, but this was something that had to be done the right way. I mean, really important and all! I'm not so good at that kind of thing. The day started VERY early, earlier than it really had to because I kept waking up all night in a sweat, afraid I had over slept. Silly me. Anyway, I spent 14 hours at the polls yesterday. I have to say, on a whole, people were very nice and very honest. I was so impressed with them all! I came home and went to bed. I was SO tired! It was a great experience tho. I am looking forward to the next one!

I was playing around with my new rub-ons the other day and came up with a couple samples I liked. I just love how bold and clean they look on the dark colors!
This first one is a 6 x 6 scrap page featuring my favorite people in the whole world! Yes, the whole family is on here. We are all bright and shiney because we are all looking right into the sun. But hey, the lighting is great! I used just one rub on here, on the actual picture! The "all of us" is a rub-on. Pretty cool?!
The F on this next card is a left over from a scrap page you may remember from a month or so ago. I had traced the F from the fall chipboard letters onto textured cardstock and used the negative part for my page. This F was just looking to get used! I used my Big Deal alphabet to spell out the rest of friend using my craft inks. I ran out of room so I got creative with my craft kniife and stamped the N on scrap paper, cut it out and stuck it under the edge of the E. The white gel pen is here...along the side of the F, faux stitched on the corners, and dotted as the butterfly trail. I used Rub-Ons for the flower and butterfly. Don't they just pop!? The center of the flower is a build-a-brad with some celery dotted DSP under it.
One lucky member of my downline will be getting this card in the mail soon. I sent it out today!
I hope to get back to run-on play later today.
Keep smiling!
