Home again

It was a WONDERFUL weekend...
I got to see Fall colors in the Utah mountains, thanks to these lovely editors of Creating Keepsakes who were so gracious to sacrifice their Friday evenings to take me out to dinner at Ruth's Diner and a small drive to a local monument. We watched the sun set, SLC light up for the night and did some souvenir shopping. The food at Ruth's was delicious and the conversation hilarious!

And then there was Saturday, a day filled with delightful women and creativity thanks to Faber-Castell Design Memory Crafts and Oh My Crafts!

And now exhausted and catching up with laundry :)

Stencils by Balzer Designs

Good things happened when Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and Jaime Echt of The Crafters Workshop came together to create trendy lovely stencils! Ever since Jaime gave me some of those beauties, I have been playing... let me just admit that I find them irresistible! And sometimes I use several stencils in one project too... like this one:

I used the 'Trust Your Heart' and 'If You Believe' 6"x6" stencils with spray mists, watercolor pencils gelatos and a stamp to create this 9"x12" poster.
