The newest challenge has posted!


I had fun with this one....


Today is thee day...



do it.

What have YOU been procrastinating?  

Come on...we all do it...or should I type 'don't do it' since we're chatting about procrastinating.

I've been admiring the whimsical thread action of some fab scrapbookers so I finally gave it a try.  Do you know how hard it was to resist clipping those sprigs?!!!!!

I finally broke into my Freckled Fawn stash...laid it down with the hopes of some wrinkles...BAM...think and it shall happen...yet again, I had to resist the urge to try to peel up the tape to flatten it out...

I'm trying to be more whimsical:


Um, did you catch my post from yesterday?  It's when I flat out said that I'm predictable..so now you know how whimsicality is a challenge for me:)

Gotta love the Echo Park Everyday Eclectic Collection.  I teamed it up with some Sassy alphas {thanks Cassie!} and my card base is by 
Gmund Savanna..111 lbs of woodgrain embossed goodness.
