American Crafts Dear Lizzy & Amy Tan | Mid Week Mojo Citrine #5

Posted by Melodee Cloud

Citrine - Week 5 of 10

New to Mid Week Mojo? Get started here!

Combining two things into one is my goal in life. I always try to drive two kids at a time to their practice or jobs. Today's steal is two awesome American Crafts Collections in one steal. For this Mid Week Mojo I combined Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm with Amy Tan Yes Please collections to showcase this awesome pic I found of my daughter in 1st grade. Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

Lizzie was obsessed with the bird they were trying to raise in her first grade class. She always wanted to bring it home. I convinced her to just hold it for a picture. She says she is still emotionally scarred that she couldn't bring that bird home.

If you look closely you will notice I didn't use any ink on this layout...I know, I am pretty proud of myself too. I did use my favorite thing, pop dots, on a couple of things, but no ink! I love my new distressing tool (keep watching for the distressing tool).
