Scrap Happy under the Palms

Posting from Paradise

Yesterday I tried a challenge of sorts. There is a call out for layouts done with only pictures and cardstock...no embellishments, no stickers, etc...just cardstock. I created 2 layouts so far and am totally having fun! This is like the good old days when I first started scrapping. I did one where I traced a picture of coral from a magazine and then cut it out and my second was inspired by a picture of a dresser in another magazine.

I found myself, rather than spending tons of time sorting through my patterned papers, my stamps and inks, my charms, ribbons and other embellishments, focusing on how to best showcase the pictures I had chosen. This has been a very liberating experience and I have a couple more I'd like to try.

I am running my sister on errands to day. She does not drive and often has chores in places she can not go in her golf cart. I am hoping we can get to the beach for lunch and see the high surf that is being reported here as a result of Hurricane (now Tropical Storm)Alberto.

Have a great one...watch this spot for beach and surf pics with any luck.

I am a big fan of just cardstaock or maybe some patterned paper and a few rub-ons or letter stickers. Can't wait to see your creations!
