  42. A little bit of this, a little bit of that… does make a difference. I too, didn’t care for the paper. However, the seasonal addititons make a statement, especially the ladybug. Since I celebrated my birthday a few days ago, I think this piece should take flight to me in upstate NY near the Canadian and VT
    borders. :)

  43. Oh Kathy… it is beautiful!!!

  44. A little bit of this, a little bit of that… can make a big difference. And, of course the addition of a ladybug steals the scene. Since I celebrated my birthday a few days ago, I think this piece should make a new home in upstate NY near the Canadian border. :) ladybug458

  45. It truly did turn out to be beautiful. My chat wasn’t working on ustream when you were commenting on the paper – I was agreeing with you.

    Nice job as always. Can’t wait to see what’s next.

  60. You just proved that our creative side makes our art unique, special and beautiful to not just us but everyone viewing it. Beauty begins from within and blossoms just as this beautiful art canvas project did for you. I am so glad you changed it so that YOU were happy and it also taught us how to problem solve if we ever feel disappointed in how a project is evolving. Love it Kathy :-)

  61. Your work is always fabulous! This one feels different though – almost like we are enjoying the outdoors on a sunny day while in flight. Just carefree & whimsicle. Love it!

  62. Fabulous, as usual. Very different feel light & airy. Has a whimsical feel to me. Almost feel like I am a butterfly in flight enjoying someone’s yard on a sunny day.

  63. That is so pretty! What paper line did you use for this?

  64. Your work is always fabulous! This one feels different though – almost like we are enjoying the outdoors on a sunny day while in flight. Just carefree & whimsicle. Love it!

  66. How many hours are in your day? When do you have time to sleep? Do you sleep???? I love all of your work. What I don’t understand is how you come up with all these wonderful and unique projects, make them, film them, write up the tutorials and sleep. Inquiring minds wanna know!
    Thank you for your inspiration.

    Another new idea…..do you ever run out??? I hope not!!

  75. Turned out great! Love the black.

  76. That is amazing!!

  77. Kathy, you accepted the challenge and struck it out of the ballpark! The black cardstock was exactly what the “fugly” paper needed. I’m with you its not a very exciting paperline but with the “right” accesories a girl can tranform an “outfit”! lol

  78. Looks like Spring! Love everything you make.

  88. I think its great the way you were honest about not liking it and was willing to go and pull it all apart to change it. It’s great to know the people we all follow and aspire to also make mistakes and show us it can be salvaged! It’s lovely now!

  89. OMG it’s beautiful – not that I ever doubted it, but it’s stunning. Fingers crossed I win it!!!! lol
    Take care
