  9. I see you’ve put Seth’s new stamp to good use here today. I wanted to get Stratosphere, but with shipping it was more than I wanted to pay for one UM stamp. His stamps and stencils really ARE lovely, though.

    I especially liked the skull. It went well with the sentiment. You always put so much into your pages, from the stamping to the texture to the images you use. I’m really, really impressed.

  13. Aaargh! A skull to remind us of the passing of Time, thanks Patty!
    The thorns are a bit unnerving too.
    But good to have something different.
