Feeling (not so) Blue

Daughter Amy is home! I love it when she is padding around the house, cracking wise, and serving as chief instigator! I took the day off. I'm not sure what she has in store for us today but I'm looking forward to whatever it is we do.

The Blues
~Stampin Up! Night of Navy cardstock
~Layer of blue hues design paper
~Rectangle of Stampin' Up! Night of Navy topped with more of the blue hues design paper
~Leaf die cuts
~Strip of dry wall mesh tape (Lynn! Are you convinced you NEED some yet? hehehehehehe)
~Stamped flower from Stampin' Up! Heartfelt Thanks - flower stamped twice with flower top popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals
