Technique Blog Hop

It is technique time again. We are here sharing our take on Perfect Clusters. You will be amazed at our great clustering techniques based on the examples shown on page 96 in the current 2012 Spring/Summer Idea Book.

If you have come from Debi's you are on the right trail. This hop is a great big ol' circle, so keep hopping 'til you get back where you started from -- still have a little of that Texas drawl from Convention in Dallas last week.

Each Convention year, we create a little roomie gift for those ladies sharing our room. This year I went a little Western, starting with the Victory paper packet (great masculine colors), some Kraft and crimpy stars and shapes, a little hemp, and cork letters finished off with some great metal stud accents.

This is one of the three mini albums each of my roomies received to display their Convention memories.

Now hop on over to Anne-Marie's to see her version of this month's technique.
