Friends by choice...CR84FN49 38

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, February 25, 2012 @ 9:56 PM | , , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having an amazing weekend. It's time for an all new CR84FN Color Challenge! We are welcoming the talented Shannon White as our Guest Designer for the month of March. You can see all of her lovely creations on her blog: Enchanted Ladybug Creations. For the next two weeks, we will be playing with the pretty color combination shown below. The beautiful photos used to create the graphic are Courtesy of Leslie at: a Creative Mint.

We celebrated my sweet sister Tina's birthday yesterday. Tina's not only my sister by my best girlfriend :)
Since I had my inks, sprays and paint out consuming the kitchen island, I created another page in my art journal. In celebration of Tina's birthday, I journaled a few sister quotes: "A sister is one who reaches for your hand and touches your heart."
and around the heart, it reads: Sisters by birth...
Friends by choice. This is very true for us. I have 6 biological sisters and 4 biological brothers and sadly, Tina is the only one whom I remain close with. Life happens.
Thanks so much for visiting!  For COMPLETE details, please visit the CR84FN site and for some fab inspiration, please be sure to visit: Suzanne CzosekLisa SomervilleStephanie KraftSue LelliDeborah Frings, Heather JensenAndrea Mathews and Shannon (March Guest Designer)


***I will be back Sunday, January 26th at 3:00 Eastern to share Waltzingmouse Stamps Day #1 previews. Hope to see you then! Be Sweet :)

These colors are so cheerful, and I love them.
What a beautiful sentiment, and so proud you have such a special bond with your sister-nothing more special then that family bond.
I also have a large family and life happens situation.
Hugs my friend and thanks for always sharing your projects.

Mona, I don't even know where to start with how incredibly EXQUISITE this project is… seriously. I think you have outdone yourself - this is now one of my favorite projects of yours, and that's no small feat since I have so many favs. Holy cow, you are a mixed media genius. Really. What a lovely gift for your sister. I am now living close to my sister, after over 15 years of seeing each other once every 2-3 years. We are enjoying each other's company and are closer than ever :)

Honestly Mona, your creations should be hanging on a wall. Maybe in a museum! Just absolutely gorgeous, and I really admire your handwriting too! Not at all easy to make handwriting to look like art (at least, not easy for me!).
