You're so Fabulous!!

Laurie Schmidlin is anywho... she's the MUSE for CASE study this month. Made a card using the colors from her fabulous card and the banner. Used the Verve week 3 sketch by Janelle and made some inchies for the Free For All challenge on SCS. Have seen lots of "inchie" cards but, never could get it to "gel" for me... finally did (or at least I think so, LOL!!)


Used a bunch of scraps from different MME papers to make the background... 1 inch punch from Creative Memories (used to scrapbook a lot and kept those punches!). Tags were made with MFT's First Place Ribbon die... the upper left one was stamped with the polka dots from Verve's Bountiful Backgrounds in versamark ink... black banner was hand cut. Sentiment is also from Verve's Bountiful Backgrounds.. added a 3/4 SU circle punch behind that adorable button. Doily is Martha Stewart.

Laurie's card...


Full of lots of shabby chicness... thought I would go that route... but, got to playing.

The sketch...












Went for supper with my oldest and her new hubby and their neighbors (totally delightful friends) at our fav Mexican restaurant... haven't been there in at least a couple months.... but, they remembered us well! It was a good thing and felt like visiting friends!! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.. mine is relaxed and busy!!

Thanks for stopping by, love it when you do and love to hear from you!!

This is gorgeous Vicki, and a fab way to use up scrap! I have a ton of scrap I can't bear to throw away, I'm so going to do this! Lovely papers, and a great take on both these challenges.
