Day One

This is my first day in the weblog world. I couldn't think of a great name for my blog so I called it "Just Me....B". That will work for now. If you've stumbled on this by some twist of the keyboard, please say "hello" and let me know you are out there.

Today I am sharing a card I designed last year, because it is one of my all time favorites. It features a copy of a 70+ year old photograph of my mother and her two younger sisters.

It is created on white cardstock that has been distressed around the edges with brown ink. The background paper was made by photocopying several very old letters and papers that belonged to my family. The colorful piece of fabric on the left is from a discontinued swatch book for upholstery fabrics, button from mom's button box, and flower from Prima. It's really amazing what you can do with what you find around your grandmother's attic.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to "see" you again.
