Fusion: the journey is the reward


We're already up to Fusion #13!

Awesome work on last week's Fusion challenge ladies!

Check out the newest challenge:


PROCEDURES:

1. Play with just Jackie's sketch challenge.

2. Play with just Lesley's inspiration photo challenge.

3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.

4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.

I'm on Lesley's Team:


I was inspired by the 

birds
color

Here's what I designed:

I decided to go the asian bird route.  Each crane has been fussy cut and each is on a foam pop dot to simulate flight.


origami cranes

We folded a thousand for my brother and sister-in-law's wedding...it symbolizes good fortune.

I'm going to squirrel this card away for my girl that will be going away for college this fall.


For the Japanese, the crane or tsuru {aha..sound familiar?!} are viewed with special value.

I'm going to start collecting origami crane themed items for the girl.  I already gave her this gorgeous necklace for her birthday this year.

 Make sure you pop over to the Fusion blog!!!!

Check out the other Fusion Scientists:


This challenge will stay open until July 23rd!  

We will be back on July 26th with Challenge #14!!

On a sad note, this will be Deanna's last challenge with Fusion. We'll miss her TONS but i know you'll be like me and stalk her blog!
