City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 239 ~ Techniques

Edit on the road

We are sad to sent Dan off on his last journal on earth, but we are happy that he is no longer suffering and that he is now with the Lord. It is going to be hard for everyone that loves Dan, especially my sister-in-law Marilyn, sigh....
Anyway, we left Iowa Sunday afternoon after a small family gathering at Marilyn's place, we decided to go through Colorado this time instead of the southern route, we checked the weather and know it will be no snow and DH can visit his daughter on the way back, we drove through Iowa, Nebraska and staying a night here in Denver Colorado, just one more day of driving tomorrow!

Char wants us to tell her what is our favorite crafting technique 

Vellum overlays is one technique I learn recently while playing along with PTI Make it Monday, I always love working with vellum so I am going to use this technique again on my project today.




I hope you hop over to City Crafter Challenge Blog and play along with us!
