Tell Your Story

 Hi, friends, welcome back to my blog! Hope you all had a great weekend. I've
enjoyed a wonderful July 4th and weekend with fairly nice weather here in Dallas.
Today, we have a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show. We challenge
you to use a small stamp or use a stamp in some small way on your project.
Or if you want to use stamps in a big way, that's also great!

 For my DT project on this challenge, I made a layout using some small stamps.
I loves to use small stamps on my projects because they always show beautiful
details. I first sprayed some Color Shine on the background and made
some flowers using Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Tattered Florals Bigz Die.

 I stamped some small text and images using Tim Holtz stampStamendous clear stamp
 and 7 gypsies cling stmap with VersaFine Ink and Clearsnap fluid chalk ink on the
background. This photo was taken on Natalie's 10th birthday so I also stamped the
date using Dear Lizzy Roller Date Stamp. Here are some more close-ups.
