WW #89 Symbols of Peace Reminder

This week's challenge at Wicked Wednesday is all about Symbols of Peace. My inspiration came from a $1 magnetic memo pad that I use in my craft area. I tore off a sheet of paper, glued it to card stock for stability, cut it to ATC size and started applying gesso, gelatos, and charcoal....along with a few other mixed medium products. I then stamped the Inkadinkadoo sentiment and heat set the white embossing powder. Rub-ons, glitter and doodling completed it.
It seems like it has been ages since I last posted, yet it's only been a week?!! My daughter's graduation party last Saturday was great, and we couldn't have been happier than to be with our family and friends who came out to celebrate Frankie and her accomplishments with us.
On a sadder note, 4 hours after the last guest left we received a phone call that my father was taken to the ER with some serious complications...which he is still trying to recover from. Most of my past week has been spent at the hospital or talking about the hospital....making the hour it took to create this week's ATC a much needed break from my daily routine.
My teamies have some wonderfully fun and funky ATC's to share which you can see AND link your project to HERE. Don't forget to link your ATC by Tuesday at 7:00 pm EST.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave such sweet comments, they are a bright spot in these emotionally filled days.
