Chalk it Up! for Madge's Scrappin' Lounge
Looking for the Timeless Twine & My Scrap Chick post? It's HERE:
The first month's embellishments arrived last Thursday. I opened them with great excitement....then froze. Everything was for the chalkboard craze. And, since I'm being honest here, I haven't jumped on the chalkboard band wagon. Well, I guess it's time. But, I have no chalk, and every single embellishment said, "just add chalk". Well, well. I'm creative, I thought, "work with it." So I did.
I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, then smeared some white ink around to make it look like a chalkboard. The round button is another embellishment from the kit. And, I had FUN! Now, I'm INTO this chalkboard craze! The Elegant Floral beneath the round button is from Pinque Peacock, made with ribbon from 3 Girl JAM. The sentiment is from a Unity Stamp Company sentiment kit, "Forever Friends". Papers are My Mind's Eye 6x6 Collectable "Unforgettable" paper pad.
