One of my 'resolutions' this year, as usual, is to make more Off-the-Page projects.
I tend to stick to layouts because I have photos to scrap & 4 kids albums, plus others,
& am always wanting to keep them moving & get them up to date.  But Off-the-Page 
projects can be fun & challenging.  Some I find easy & others difficult, so pushing
the boundaries is exciting & how we grow as artists & expand our repertoire, which
to me is more important than the humdrum boringness of keeping albums up to date!


I bought an inexpensive board at a local decor store & covered it with paper from one of the new 
7 Dots Collections, Thoughts Keeper, then layered up with some media, corrugated board, 
Thoughts Keeper tags, Maya Road embellishments & topped it all off with Prima wooden butterflies!  All this in 45 minutes.  I was definitely rolling!!
