Finally...She Scraps

Just a quick little entry today with layouts I did this past week. I have gotten to thinking that I talk way too much with my posting. I should just show the stuff and zip my lips (or tie my hands up since that seems more appropriate). I hope that's possible. I'll try anyway. Here goes.

The above was done for the recently posted BASB challenge. Use stamps. No pattern paper. You can check out the challenge here: Hope you have a chance to join in! It was overwhelming for me at first, but I like the finished product.

Underwater World was done for the Sketch challenge at Studio Calico. Fun challenge. I haven't tried a lot of sketches and found I loved doing it. Those sea horse charms have been in my collection, since I started scrapping twelve years ago. Can you say pack rat? So true.
Below is another challenge that was posted at Studio Calico. Complete a layout and use the scraps to make a card. Kristii and Waleska both had layouts using the "building" paper and both blew me away. Without them I would have tossed the paper aside. Not because I don't like the paper, but because it scared me.

Lastly, just a layout I threw together. Nothing too spectacular, but I love the yellow and "teal" together. Plus it has been cloudy and grey here and I needed to work on something springy.

I seemed to have gotten through without blabbing too much. But boy is it boring. Hope you stayed awake through it. Next time I will figure out how to write less and add humor. Not now though. There is a birthday party waiting for me at home. :o)

You are on fire!! The building paper scares me too, but I like how you used it.

You should talk more. You're funny and I like when you talk.
