Pan Pastels.......

 Playing with Pan Pastels:
 I had the good fortune last week of meeting Hetty Sanders- she is here for the Club Scrap event and was staying with a friend that lives fairly close to me.  We had an afternoon of stamping fun.....
Above photo is Laura, Hetty and I

and
This is Lynette, Hetty and I.

We played with Pan Pastels and stamped with some Tim Holtz stamps Hetty purchased. Laura and Loretta also shared their altered books with me- and Laura supplied me with a book to alter- so that will be my next adventure.......

 Here is what we worked on......

 Loretta and Hetty made book pages, we also worked with Gesso and stencils that Loretta shared, and we made card fronts with Pan Pastels.....plain and embossed with CB folders.

I am in Cinci with my Mom and Dad this week.  Mom had surgery last Monday and is still in the hospital...I am heading home tomorrow...  I am not sure when my Mom will be discharged from the Hospital- I am hoping in the next couple of days.

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous card, Shelley. I've never used Pan Pastels before. Love the colors. Are you originally from Cincinnati? So am I. Will add your Mom to my prayer list and sending prayers for her speedy recovery.

Lovely card, Shelly! I was hoping that Hetty might make it down to Southern CA. What a great time and how fun to meet a blogging/TJ friend. We were in Green Bay in September and just loved the area, so how fun would it have been to add this? Enjoy the weekend!
