Curious Katie

I do love going through old pictures! I found these black and whites of Katie when she was 2. Going for a walk would be an adventure in itself!  At that age she had to stop and investigate everything and stop and visit with everyone along the way.  Curious when she was little and still is!!

I have buckets of flowers in my craft room that need to get used up, so I can of course, make room for new crafting goodies!  I thought this awesome weed stamp would be a great way to use some up. I stamped Rubbernecker's Weed SKU:497-15  3 times in Versafine Black Onyx on scrap card stock and clear embossed them. I cut them out and adhered them to the page and topped them with some white Prima flowers.  Don't these weeds make a fantastic embellishment for a black and white page.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
