If at first you don't succeed....
Try, try again!!!!
So, I must be a glutten for punishment, because I just submitted an entry to the 3 Bugs in a Rug DT. I took my time with the "proud" layout and clock, but whipped out the last one in one night. I like them all, though!!! Fun stuff with bright colors!
The photo in the "cute" layout was by my friend Tisha McCuiston!
The clock was from the Dollar Tree. It was completely flat, so I knew it would be fairly easy to alter. My inspiration for the center octagon was a patio umbrella (I had been browsing through a Crate and Barrell catalog!) It was the only way I could think of to get the "circle" in the middle as I had envisioned.
And I am stuck on handcut titles!!! The poor scrapper's die cut machine, if you will!!! But I have tons of fonts, can make the title exactly to size, and it's just fun to use my Honey Bee scissors!!!
Although I thought I'd lost the scissors for about a week.... they were buried under the chaos on my scrap desk!!! Guess it's time to organize again!!
