I broke out Candy Shoppe (which I haven't even touched yet) and started cutting without a plan. I basically had the whole thing laid out before I even knew what photos to use- but I think these bright colors really work against such a dark photo. And get this- when my husband saw the page, he didn't mention the fact that it was pink. Phew.
And, in case you're wondering- you can use a border punch on sticky-back canvas. But, expect your punch to stick each.and.every.time. And be prepared to use any tools you might have laying about (a ball point pen, scissors, tweezers, a paint brush) to attempt getting it unstuck. Totally worth it.
I used SC Piglet to give it some color and wouldn't you know, its *almost* like Pink Paislee's mistable trim.
I keep getting little ideas for pages right before I fall asleep at night. I saw on the SC message boards a thread about this; some people jump out of bed to jot down these ideas. I wish I did, but man, once I'm in bed, I'M IN BED. I wouldn't get out if the house was on fire. Okay, maybe I would. My alternative is to think about it endlessly until I finally fall asleep and then hope I remember what it was the next day.
I had one such idea last night and immediately started working on it (so I wouldn't forget)- when a second idea hit me. So I left my first project on my table and started with the second on the floor. Then, I ended up on my second desk, and among the mess on the floor I got a NEW idea for a card. I know, I must have gotten a visit from the scrap fairy. In the midst of all this creative madness, I had run some errands- so imagine my surprise when I came back into my room to find this:
Yeah, I guess it's easy to get carried away in here! Better get to cleaning this in the morning!
