ATC for you and me.


Whoever said that smaller is easier than larger may not have been talking about scrapbooking. Case in point, ATC cards. I joined a swap that Jenn at Studio Calico was hosting. I have never done ATCs, so I thought it would be a nice change in pace and signed up to do two. I have never been so challenged in my life. My brain is definitely stuck on 12 x 12 format. LOL! I will admit it was a lot of fun, but I did not get the idea above during waking hours. It came to me in a dream. I know...weird as heck. When I woke up I realized with great sadness that I am more creative when sleeping than I am awake. What.ev.er. Now I have to give credit to my friend, Dawn. She makes beautiful layouts and cards. I always notice the cool paper flowers she makes, so I copied her. This is perfect, because one of my swap mates is Jonnelle, who is a friend of Dawn's. I didn't plan it to goes like this, but it makes me happy that it turned out that way.
BOO TO YOU DUDES!
Anyway...before I lose your attention I wanted to wish you all a safe and spooky Halloween. I hope your bagful of candy doesn't develop any holes. That would stink. I should know...it happened to me. All that work to come home to find I left a trail of candy behind me. Losing candy wasn't too bad...the bad part was leaving the trail for all the ghosts, monsters and cheerleaders to find their way to my home and to me. ARGGGGHHHH!
