TGIF - Numbers


I am very honoured to be the guest host for the TGIF challenge this week. I was assigned the theme "Numbers" and stressed about it for a little while. Then I told myself to relax, that numbers are a huge part of our lives. In the card sample that I created, I wanted to use the Applegate Family from Retro Cafe Art Gallery. I thought about these siblings and how they would grow up together, how the older daughter would look after her younger siblings, how they would go to school and play games together and how their mother might mark their growth on a chart or perhaps on the frame of a door.....and how each of these events involved numbers in some way.

So very true, so very wise...we are ruled by numbers, our lives are all about numbers in so many ways. And you were inspired by the Applegates (Kris' sheets are so inspiring, aren't they?) and I love how you imagine and create a story around the graphic in your mind which I'm sure makes it easier for you to create.

What a lovely representation for the theme of numbers! I love what you did. Everytime that I look, I see another number subtly appear. Great job!

It's been awhile since I've blogged. I love your new look and the new header!
