Isn’t it ironic
May 9, 2007
That I’ve spent so much money on wonderful supplies, only to realize my favorite layouts are with dollar store materials? So yes, I ADORE Basic Grey, I have almost all their paper, but I think I just don’t know how to use patterned paper in layouts. I think I’ll just announce myself a collector of patterned paper. Or else I’ll challenge myself to use it. I’m just afraid to use it, well, yes, because it’s so gorgeous, but also because I’m afraid I won’t be able to match pics/embellies/background/colors AND the patterned paper, you know what I mean? OK, I’ll have to try it.
I really enjoyed making this layout, punching all the holes, doodling and cutting up the pic – which I really did take on the day my sister got married. I know, looks silly to some, to me it was REALLY weird and interesting seeing my toes painted! 🙂
Except for the cardstock, everything came from a dollar store – the precious letters and felt from Holland, and the brads – surprisingly enough, from a dollar store in Israel!
