It's been a couple weeks since I've had time to stamp and post to my blog. Busy, busy at work and a weekend spent out of town with friends being the causes.
Last Saturday when I did finally have some time to stamp, I went to Jen's blog to see the Sketch For You To Try "sketch", planning on making a card with it. I saw this project and got side-tracked. It looked really interesting, so I just had to give it a try. I had a great time creating. The panels just evolved with the only "theme" being Halloween. It pretty much took up my whole weekend's stamping time and I'm quite happy with the results. I will be sending it to my sister and her kidos (my biggest fans after all) to dress up their fireplace mantle for Halloween. The original instructions are here on Taylor's blog from 2007.
In creating this project, I used a variety of stamps, papers and embellishments, some new and some retired. It's a long list.
