I picked up some new ink colors yesterday and sassafras so I was itching to create with it last night. ...aren't those balloons the cutest? I also finished up the other layout from the weekend below.

The inks that I use the most are the Tim Holtz Distressed Inks, I love them and the pigment in them just rocks! I did order a bottle of Maya Mist with my Studio Calico kit this month so I am going to test that baby out tonight.

Thank you for the book suggestions, putting some on reserve at my library tonight!
....nothing much as to say, got some sad news at work that one of volunteers that we work closely with died last night. They do not know the cause of death at the moment, he was young, so so funny and always a pleasure to work with...just bummed about it :(. So the weather for sure matches my mood today. xo
