Inspired By Elizabeth Kartcher's CHA Canvas

I did not attend CHA but there are plenty of videos on YouTube showcasing the latest and greatest.  Ranger gave products to several prominent designers and challenged them to create.  They were all fantastic!  One that caught my attention was Elizabeth Kartchner's canvas.  She used  alphabet letters to create this fantastic project.

You can see the rest of the participants' work over on Ranger's blog

I love the alphabet letters and since I have so many that are hard to use due to lacking vowels or common letters so this was perfect for me to use this technique in my layout.

These are three of my grandgirls.  

American Crafts Thickers, Prima flowers and crystals, Blue Fern Studios chipboard, acrylic paints, Tim Holtz Alteration Picture Wheel, and My Minds Eye Chalk Studio (tags).

Personal Note
Last Wednesday we experienced what was called a major snow/sleet/freezing rain event that nearly shut down the state of South Carolina.  I grew up in very cold winter places and this was not just a southern was rough.  Just as we were coming out of it we had an Earthquake.  I woke up Sunday to the sound of the Emergency Broadcast System going off.  It scared me at the thought of what was going to happen next.  Well, it was just a test and I was relieved. 

We did mange to have a little fun with my granddaughter that lives next to us.  Enjoy...

Have a Crafty Day!
