At the dinner table
"Good morning. Well last week we invited you to dinner, so this week we will sit at the table. We have some great project from the Design Team for place settings, napkin holders, and center pieces that have been given that special touch with embossing. I'm sure you will find something to use at your table. Share your ideas with us and enter to win a gift certificate to The Craft Barn."
My take for the challenge was a placemat and a napkin holder.
I had many ideas for this placemat but due to my worries about my test I couldn't bring them to the table ;) in a better setting. I could.'t even get the purple on the placemat purple but it kept coming out blue. So when I came back home from the tests, I decided give it another shot at the photos and on these ones at least you can see purple a bit more. hehehe
My Thanksgiving Placemat
I used the same scarecrow from the invites, the same punched leaves and the same patterned paper I used for the prior project. I wanted the placemat be an extension of my invites.
If you click on the photo you get a bigger view and can see I embossed the leaves with my TEXTILE cuttlebug folder I am in love with.
These leaves and the napkin holder were embossed as well.
I hope you enjoy it!
It is much decent in real life, lol
On another note, I have to see my neurosurgeon on friday and I am hoping by then he has the results of my brain MRI's.
You see? they discovered I have a brain aneurysm like 8-10 years ago and now I am having blindness episodes for about two years now. I check my aneurysm every two years because it has not moved or grown as of 2008 and these blindness episodes are not from my eyes or my heart. I had already an ultrasound on my neck to make sure they were not blockages despite the fact that my arteries and veins are very open. When I had my open heart surgery three years ago it was because my mitral valve was regurgitating and needed to be repaired or replaced and, Thank to God they were able to repair it and to this day it continues to function well.
Anyhow, I always get a bit scared about the tests and I have been a bit of a mess, lol. I was in that MRI tunnel yesterday for over an hour, :( but, NO PITY please,.......I AM ALIVE AND SO FAR NO TERMINAL ILLNESSES, but thank you for reading because I needed to vent. :)
Now, have fun submitting your project to
for a chance to win a gift certificate to get some goodies.
See you tomorrow!
and we have a winner for the Dia de los Muertos, yay!!!
I have another pendant to give away, so stay tuned :)
Love you all
