My First Heart In Hands Project...

Good morning! How is everyone out there? All of you out in the midwest, I hope that you are staying warm!! I won't rub in the fact that it has been 80 degrees here for the last three days. I think that someone forgot to mention to the weatherman here in North Carolina that it is December, not May!?!?

Kat and I are both still sick...I swear that this is the neverending cold. She has had hers now for at least a week and a half, but you know, she is such a good baby. The only time she even gets fussy is when I lay her down and I honestly think that is because she can't breathe, but most the time she is happy as can be. I, on the other hand, feel like I have been run over by a truck and whine about it at every available opportunity. :)

In the midst of it all, I found time to do my first project over at Heart In Hands for the creative team. My job is to take assigned classes and remix them. My first was a gorgeous collage by Catherine Matthews Scanlon. As you all know, I have some difficulties putting together collages, but OMG! This class made it so easy!!! This entire project from start to finish took me less than 2 hours!!! I highly recommend these HHS classes esp. if you need a quick gift for this time of the year. It totally takes all that time commitment out of the creation process and when you need a gift in a hurry, these are perfect (and they are darn cute too!!!)

I am definitely creating another one of these for Kat. This one is for my 12 yo son, Jacob.

Supplies used:
*papers: Collage Press, Urban Lily
*tags: Making Memories, MME
*chipboard: Heidi Swapp
*punch: Whale of a Punch
*glitter paint: Jo Sonja's
*gaffer tape: 7 gypsies

OMGosh Christi- this is so amazing!!! Love everything about it!

Mary Jo said...

Christi - that is just fabulous!!! Your collage makes me want to create one for Evan. You are definitely inspiring us already :0)

As for sick - Erin and I were just there and she's finally getting over it hopefully for good or at least a while. Her's lasted a little over a week and a half so hopefully Kat will feel better soon!!! But I definitely know how much it takes out of us mamas, too!

WOW oh WOW oh WOW -- I am in love with this project -- it turned out so fantastic! Makes me want to do one for each of my kiddos. Great work -- and did I mention I'm in love with this project?? ;)

And I sure hope you and little Kat get over those colds soon. I feel your pain -- we all went through the same thing here -- it seems to never go away!

Hope y'all are feeling better. I'm not feeling so great myself. Here's wishing you a speedy recovery.

I love the depth of the collage and the use of black and white to set off Jacob's picture!
