Simple…love.

Gilli Waitress_SimpleLove~

T icon winter

his time of the year a lot of us reflect a bit. Sure we need to try to do that everyday…and I think this is a life exercise and we get better as we move along  : ). It was interesting though to see how some of us actually put all those “promises” and make good. The truth is that some people do good deeds and just keep quiet. I like this way : ). But sometimes a life experience can be so big so profound that goes beyond you and your close circle…it can change others lives forever. Why all this talk? A book I read over the BookEndz club. The Invisible Thread. A must read for the young or old. I won’t give the plot…an actuall a true story.

Anyway I will stop here otherwise I will give away. One thing I will share with you is how I was inspired to make my project for Gilli Waitress_SimpleLovethis month’s book club! What inspired me? “ The simple things in life that demonstrate that we care. Do you see what Gilli waitress have over her tray? A brown bag. I will stop here : ).

I colored Gilli using copic markers but added a few tweaks…like the lines on her shirt. I did that by using my copic multiliners. I also used my multi to write the sentiment (Love is a simple thing!).  I cut Gilli by hand plus Martha circular tool. The lovely aqua color background was created bGilli Waitress_SimpleLove ay using chalk inks ( I get mine over Oozak with Rusty).The border was made from Martha Stewart punch plus a  touch of stickles. The swirls are from the Silhouette studio library. The little corner embellishment was made using a cut from the silhouette. I added a cut to both side of my paper and threaded with twine. See the link? LOl. Read the book  Smile. Anyway…the little brown bag was fun to make since I got a big brow bag and cut the paper to make a tiny little one. I added a heart decorated tissue to make volume and also some hearts confetti.Gilli Waitress_SimpleLove bag

I hope you liked the project and will also be able to join us over the BookEndz. My friend Suzanne J. Dean has a sweet prize  this month for the winner and also you can join in to help a cause. Literacy!

See you around super soon!
