How Special You Are

Very last minute entry for PTI MIM to use paper weaving.  I've done this technique but not with leaving space between the pieces like Ashley did for her layout.  To make it easy I used several papers from MME--a pad from my friend, Rosemary.  I love the look & didn't want to cover it so just added a sentiment & a few die cut & stamped leaves from PTI Harvest Berries.  Thanks so much for stopping by--your comments make my day!

I didn't even watch last week's video, since I had done the technique. Yours turned out beautifully. Was wondering what kind of nursing you do. I always tend to look at your profile when it says PNW. I live on the WA/Can border, so I actually cannot get any further PNW. Was supposed to do a travel assignment in WA last year, for the hospitals in the Multicare system last year/early this year for the transition with charting, but decided not to. Anywho, love the card.
