I am loving all the examples of using stamps in layouts - its giving me an idea of how much stamps and layouts really do go together. I just always thought they were mainly a card item so I stayed away from them.
Kory, I wish you could be my embossing coach too! We'd probably shop more than we emboss though. And I know I would end up with every cool embossing powder and ink they make!
I learn hands on and in class. I have a girlfriend now who is helping me with my gypsy because I'm clueless.
I spent 2 hours tonight researching Balinese Hindu funeral and cremation rituals.
I know - weird and bizarre.
We were in Bali and our shuttle bus was stopped for a while in traffic and out our window we saw a Balinese Hindu cremation service so I've been researching it to learn more about it. Actually, they aren't sad - its more of a party or celebration!
Since I have pictures I will make a layout and explain what is going on.
Its a celebration because once they are cremated and ashes are thown in the sea the soul is able to reincarnate. If you are Balinese Hindu, that is a good thing. You come back as a new person or the next baby born into the family - you are in the same family.
Okay, now I have to sift through all the info and put it in some kind of logical order.
