Chalkboard Craze {I love it}

Monday, November 26, 2012

This chalkboard look is everywhere now, like here, here, here, and here
 {and I love it}!
It's such a fun look and I thought it would be perfect
 for my nephew's upcoming birthday!
Leave it to Betsy to work her magic on paper and come up with this technique here.

Then during the recent blog hop I saw this card by Colleen and loved it!
I'm sure I'll try this technique again.  It's a lot of fun and easy to do!
