Last night I continued in my scrap/craft room cleaning and organizing.
Then I thought to myself, its National Scrapbooking Day, I should do something creative.
So I joined a challenge on Distress to Impress' blog.
Rebecca wanted us to scrap something using our favourite colour combination.
For the last few years my favourite combination is burgundy and pink.
But it has to be a certain shade of burgundy and pink ;)
I used this Pure Innocence image that I had coloured earlier in the month. I had only coloured her flesh and hair.
There was something I didn't like about it, so I didn't use it before now.
I won't tell you what I didn't like about it as a few of you have told me to stop pointing out my flaws in my projects, lol.
But just so you know, I point out my flaws, not because I am putting myself down, but to show you that I do use my flawed pieces or that the flaws can be fixed :)
I paper pieced her dress with some of the background paper.
I added some buttons and some ribbon. I think this ribbon goes perfectly with this colour combination.
I also took a photo with the tag on the white background.
I think I like it on the brown background better.
Onto My Day:
I was planned on sleeping in. I even told Wayne last night, that when he wakes up, just quietly leave. Don't snuggle me, as I don't want to fully wake up ;)
Well guess who wouldn't leave me alone....Rose, our cat. She kept meowing. I guess she figured it was a week day and we should all be up if Wayne and her were awake, lol.
Wayne and I ran out for a bit this morning. I went to Michaels as they had their 14x14 Iris plastic containers for $3.99 and I was able to use my coupon on it as well, bonus :)
I wanted that 8x8 photo display rack, but it was 25% off. So I will wait until they aren't on sale and use my 40% off coupon ;)
Sharon and Jim dropped by for a while tonight.
Its always nice to have unexpected company :)
Hope you all had a creative Sunday :)
