*once upon a time*

After a busy morning of running errands, I was delighted to come home to find my Stamping Bella order sitting ever-so-nicely inside my screen door. New stamps always make for a good day, don't you agree? The new Ketto line is so cute, and those spunky little girls make my heart happy! This one is called Missmatch Ketto. Isn't she fun? Guess what else made my little heart happy yesterday. Do you see that *crimped* layer? I did it! I was finally able to get a straight crimped layer! Will I be able to do it again? Probably not! I have no idea how I did it, so it's anyone's guess if I can master it again, but I refuse to be glum, and I will delight in my one-time success and consider it a victory... however small of a victory it may be!

Several weeks ago when I was shopping out of town, I ran across Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. There were so many fabulous colors to choose from that it took me forever to pick one. I finally decided on Pearl, and I love it! I gave MissMatch Ketto a few spritzes, and she is simply glowing! It gave her such a lovely sparkle, and I was impressed by how quickly it dries. I will definitely be picking up a few more colors next time!

I have some more Ketto's just waiting for ink, so I'd better get scootin'!

Cute! I'm not usually drawn to "people" images, but the Kettos are so cute that I'm a little tempted.

My crimping secret...I hold the paper with my mouth! lol! Handle in one hand, crank with one hand, mouth keeps the paper straight. Funny, but it works! ;)
