Inspiration...


After receiving Cornish Heritage Farms Scalloped Lace backgrounder and the brainstorming process worked through... An idea was hatched for a scalloped lace window treatment accompanied by Asela's Standing Swirly Bird! *wink*

Inspiration didn't stop there... I found myself looking at MANY window treatments driving to and from work that day! After sorting through many visuals and why this or that wouldn't work out on paper... A design decision combining the weave backgrounder lent a weathered finish to my window frame, thus becoming my focal point. Adding Asela's "A Little Birdie Told Me..." sentiment to the top of my creation lent the proper balance. Did I achieve what I set forth to accomplish? *wink* Will this be the last of my window treatment creations? Certainly not...

Last week was a busy one, however this week is certainly no different! *wink* I'm busily working on the completion of three ATC swaps, not to mention a Halloween swap deadline looming before me. The majority due this week! Am I nuts... These were commitments entered into prior to becoming a design team member for Cornish Heritage Farms, which I feel strongly about keeping. I enjoy swapping with other stampers and the friendships they've brought me, however my focus will be on my commitment to Cornish Heritage Farms and my blog until I find a proper balance. *smile* So stay tuned for the reveal of my swaps, not to mention my CHF creations.

I look forward to our next visit. Until then...

Your card is adorable Anne. I love how you used the lace backgrounder to make the curtains in the window. A very creative idea. :) Not to worry. You will find your balance now that your ATC's are all done. ;)
