'Brellas & Boots & Piano Hands

The Friday Mashup! this week included using umbrellas in your project - I tried very hard to absorb the positive energy from this card, considering it was snowing yesterday while I was making it.  I know spring will come, I know spring will come.

The second part of the Mashup was to use a Double Z Fold.  I was going to use a belly band to help keep the card shut, but it would get in the way of the umbrellas - so I decided to use the Decorative Label punch tucked under one of the umbrellas to keep it shut.

The Kissing Technique was used for the second umbrella using "Beyond Plaid".
Here is the Challenge:
  1. Create a project using an "Umbrella Image".
  2. Create a "Double Z Fold Card".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Double Z Fold Card with an Umbrella Image".

I've also been working on getting Elliot's "First Year" book finished.  This is a plain and simple page - but it's a theme we will return to repeatedly.  


Here is the first time we took piano pictures.

He's my little sweetheart!!!!

Hope you have someone in your life that you absolutely love to pieces - young or old!
Thanks for dropping by -

We're in the middle of a big snowstorm here :) I love it but my daughter is looking at all the umbrella projects, dreaming of a beach somewhere, LOL.

Love how you used the decorative label to close the card, that was a great idea! Great colors and background also!

Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Friday Mashup!
