LEJ Designs- Something New

I have loved this image since I first saw it, there is something about Ellen  that I find intriguing, she is that everyday kind of girl living a life somewhat better than most of us  and with a bit more  glamour judging by her 'cool' outfit, I'm sure the boxes are full of all kinds of fashionable clothes, shoes  and trinket  OR if she is more like me, than full of crafting goodies and designer paper:O)

  4. Hi Glenda, a fabulous card, ( I used the same image, she is great isn't she)

  6. Ahh ha ha ha -- fabulous sentiment! Love your color combo, Glenda, and that dp is superb. Wonderful coloring!

  7. I got the biggest chuckle out of your card and what you said....and all so true. I see you listed the dies you used, but I'm not sure about the swirls or open outline of a type of flower behind the sentiment and on the top and bottom of the oval with image of Ellen. Can you tell me what you it

    1. The open outline's are Memory Box - Tilth Floral - isn't it amazing! I bought the die for my friends Christmas Present but just had to try it before it got wrapped - sorry Dawn- could not control myself and I had a hard time giving it up - only used it once but I was in love; lol!
      Hope this answers your question Cely!
