Live today as if there is no tomorrow...

Since I still don't know when I'm leaving to France, I decided to keep up with my obligations and try to finish early. With that I completed my March entry to the CJ Challenge. This month we had to use favorite quote or scripture. I decided to use a quote, "Live today as if there is no tomorrow", it really captures how I hope to live my life, hence the title of my blog.

Here is what I created:


It's a 12x12 Canvas. I used the K&Co Cut-n-Paste Paper line, I used the plain paper as my base and the glitter paper (same design) I cut it up and used pop dots to give me dimension. I also used pearls galore of all sizes. I cross-stitched over tulle and over some letters. Used some vintage music sheet, ribbon and lace. I glimmer mist the canvas with Vintage Pink, it worked so great with my colors. The chipboard letters were also glimmer misted with Olive Green. I love how it all came out. It's so shabby chic. I just love those colors, pink, green and ivory/pearl.

Enjoy.
