CHA Binders

It's Thursday, and time for another CCEE challenge. I stuck with Cindy's sketch as a base, but added a couple of things. Hopefully I won't get the buzzer!! We'd love to have you play along too. Just click HERE to head on over to our CCEE Stamper's Blog.

I leave for CHA this Sat., and am about as excited as I can get. Last year I altered some Maya Road binders for us to take notes in, so I thought I would do it again this year. I will have one to show you tomorrow and Sat. too.

To alter this 6x6 Maya Road Chipboard Binder, I used Urban Tapestry and Slight Alterations (Tim Holtz's Stamper's Anonymous). For my CHA medallion, I turned to my trusty JustRite tools. I used my Vertical Stamper, with Brayton and Trompe Script fonts.

The paper is Basicgrey Periphery and Birchtone Dark Prismatics.

That about sums up today's binder. Check back tomorrow to see another in a totally different style.

We've been getting a lot of storms here in central California. Very rare indeed. I thought I'd share a few photos. 2 of one of the many rainbows we've been seeing, and one of the sunrise over the mountains the next morning. You can click on the photos for a closer look.

If you look closely you can see a double on the right. It's very faint.





Happy Stamping!
Tosh
