Once upon a time there was a beautiful stamp that cried out to be used on a project or “6” J.  This “beautiful stamp” came from Impression Obsession and was one of their new releases at “CREATIVATION” which was held in Phoenix in January. This stamp, part of a “geranium series” from Impression Obsession decided to go home with Cathie and she set to work creating “something”. Not really knowing what the project would become, Cathie set about simply altering a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock with her new, stamp and the Poinsettia pigment petal point from Clearsnap.

So many things are changing and growing and one of those “things” is not a “thing” it is my wonderful, grandlovely girl, Rianne. She has decided she should become 18 years of age and although I have strived to try to get her to “grow up slower” she simply, did not.
