I finally got some time to scrap yesterday! yippee!! I can be downright stubborn sometimes. I know, this is not news to anyone who knows me. I had it in my head to use the pics on this LO in color. I just flat out refused to print them in sepia or b/w. I really don't know why. Guess I just loved the contrast between that bright blue sky and the rocks with that setting sun glow that would all be lost if I converted them. Well, do you have any idea how HARD it is to coordinate papers in these colors??? This one frustrated me for several hours yesterday until it came together and now it's one of my faves. It was too fun using up some paper I bought at Target eons ago and of course, mixing anything with BG--as my friend Terry says--" always classes anything up". I'm challenging myself to step out of that comfort zone and try techniques or products that I normally don't reach for. On this one I used a little sugar coating on the flowers. Rebecca, if you read this, thanks for pushing me over the fence on the glitter :) I've also been dying to use my new fiskars threading water punch that I was lucky enough to find thanks to a whole lotta internet hunting! It's beer brewing weekend for us so I might get a chance to scrap again this weekend while the guys have their own fun!
