So, let me show you what I came up with. I challenged myself a bit as I never...EVER mix and match Designer Papers, I chose 3 of them!! Yep, I overcame my fear of it looking too much and too busy and I just went for it,LOL!!!

Do you want to see how it came out? All right, but you gotta promise me to honestly tell me what you think...all right?

God's Hands

Paper:PTI Sweet Blush, Dark Chocolate, Memory Box Gossamer

Stamps: ODBD God's Hands and Fleur De Lis Borders

Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Tattered Rose, Antique Linen

Accessories: Nesties Petite Ovals Large, Prima Flowers, pearls made with Viva Pearl Pen in Ice White, antique copper cross, hand dyed seam binding, hemp cord, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool

Whatcha think? Those Memory Box Gossamer papers are all so wonderful and I truly had a little fun picking the ones I liked and was surprised how well they go together ;D. I am getting there....slowly but surely I will overcome this fear of mixing and matching papers!! Gosh, I have enough of them. ....I have so many paper pads that my DH always tells me that I could open up my own store,LOL!!!

Would you love to see some more inspiration to get your creative juices flowing? My Design Sisters....oh, I love this bunch of ever so creative and totally talented ladies!!!! Check out

This is it for right now...thanks so much for stopping by today!!
