While the girls were in school this morning I did a little scrapping. I hadn't scrapped anything since Saturday, and missed playing with all me goodies. I wanted to create a card based on Kazan's Sketch 26 over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I also checked the Use It! Challenge blog. The talented Rae Barthel started this challenge blog 2 months ago, and I really like the concept. Rae challenges us to use our ever-growing stash. We all have lots and lots of scrapbook stuff, and don't we all buy more? Even though if we don't need anything. Well, at least I do. So far, I haven't had a change to participate in the Use It! challenges, but now that Rae has extended the time frame to complete the challenge (thanks, Rae!) I have more time to play along. Use It! Challenge 9 is 1) color challenge: pink, black, white 2) accents: scallops, ribbon and bling 3) polka dots, baby! and 4) D.I.Y. aka 'do it yourself'. I used one of my favorite collections ever....Scenic Route's Laurel. My D.I.Y. item is the flower which I cut from chipboard. I added some funky circles, a button and twine to it. The card design is based on Kazan's Sketch 26.
