For a Friend

It really is a good idea to come back the next day before you decide to trash what you've made.  Last night this almost went in the round file, but this morning I actually liked it & finished putting it together. I used the negatives of the PTI Hexagon cover plate to make my flowers after watching the PTI MIM video for this week.  The sweet aqua dotted paper is part of the blog candy I won on Maria's blog.  
I used another PTI tiny tag & stamped the sentiment from the set in Aqua Mist. The gray panel is matted with a purple panel & is mounted with foam tape.

We had a lovely 3 nights at Winchester Bay. Wearing shorts at the Oregon coast is pretty rare! Our site was right on the bay--hated to leave!

  8. I always find walking away from a project in hand and coming back to it later with a fresh eye works for me too. Glad you enjoyed your beach vacation. Hugs Mrs A.

  17. Yes, letting a card that 'seems' not great sit overnight can lead to a wonderful new perspective come the next day...and your card is a perfect example! So glad you persevered with it...such pretty papers, cool hexagon flowers and that wee tag is utterly darling! Fabulous photos...I can see why you wouldn't want to leave. Incredibly beautiful scenery...
    Hugs~c
