Still Using My Stash!

Have you ever started a lo and just couldn't figure out what the heck to do with it? Something or a lot of things just weren't working the way you thought they would. That's the case with this lo of the girls and I . I started this lo in the spring, around the time that I purchased this K and Co paper, which by the way is my most favorite paper pad ever. Of the few pads that I buy, I usually use a few sheets of paper and then tire of it and give it away or sell it at a lss sale. "Cut n' Paste" stole my heart and I still love it. Anyway, I started this lo with a large photo from Lily's birthday and it just never looked right to me, so I stuck it in a page protector and filed it away. Every once in awhile I would come upon it as I shuffled papers around my desk from one pile to the next. Well, I decided now was the time to either scrap with it or turn it into a card or something. I didn't want to just throw it out because I do love the paper and I spent a long time sewing on it. So, this is what I came up with and i am happy.....that it is over and done with! A rare photo of me with my girls and they aren't even looking at the camera...of course.

The collage card in the last post used die cuts from the line and this lo includes the paper. I also have some old posts of this line here, here
and here.

Most of the embellishments on this page are from GCD Studios, they are a part of the Melody Ross line called Artsy Urban, I was the lucky winner of the embellishments, but I haven't had a chance to get the paper yet, it will be sold at Michael's, but it hasn't arrived at mine yet. I also made a mini album with this collection and I never did post the whole album here, so I think I will do so tomorrow.





Here is another collage card...
I like that style, can you tell? I used Upsy Daisy patterned paper and die cuts from K and Co and Sassafras. The little pinwheel stamp is Studio Calico and you can see my favorite wood grain stamp layered over the bingo card
