Inspired by Belleek Pottery

So ... I soooooo loved the Technique Lover's Challenge over on SCS this week. It's basically a challenge that many of us have done before. That is, inking up an embossing folder before running it through your embossing machine with cardstock in it. The point of this challenge, however, was to create a light-neutral-monochromatic-type of look (that's a LOT of words!!).

I tried River Rock, Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake ink on this before finally settling on the Crumb Cake. It turned out a bit darker than I had planned, but I still like the outcome anyway!!

My brain feels like mushy oatmeal!! I am in the process of switching our accounting software at work from an entirely Windows-based program to an entirely Mac-based program. I feel like I need to just open up the top of my head and let someone with more knowledge about what I am doing just pour the info in! (I keep hearing "I'm a Little Teapot" in my head now!!) Hopefully I will do better with it at work today than I did on Monday and yesterday ... onward and upward!! Smiley from

Speaking of which ... I am CHA-Anaheim bound this weekend (and y'all KNOW that means a trip to DISNEYLAND in there somewhere!)! The rest of the fam is staying home with the dog ... I will take LOTS of pictures for them, though. And I may even be persuaded to bring them home a goodie or something!! Can't WAIT to hang out with my super-cool crafty friends!! GOOD TIMES!!
