CAS-ology #





You are witnessing a first for me:  I am the Guest Designer for CASology this week, and I couldn't be happier.   


This week's word is 'POND'.  The first thing that popped into my head when I saw 'pond' was frog, so I put this little green cutie on a lily pad, nestled amidst the bamboo.  I used this frog as my focal point, and balanced him out with a sentiment in the opposite corner.  There is still room for lots of textured white space.



I hope you will play along this week.  What do you think of when you think about ponds?

Here are some guidelines you may find helpful:






Supplies Used (PTI):
Stamps:  Frog Hop, Peaceful Garden
Paper:  White, Kraft, Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuese
Ink:  Kraft, Ripe Avocado, Memento Tuxedo Black
Other:  Frog Hop, Fillable Frames Dies, Canvas/Linen IP, Twine, Google Eyes



Thanks for Visiting
