Happy Anniversary

Big shout out to Joni for winning the first "Pagerize" challenge. She gets bragging rights, next pagerize creator, and rights to pick the next winner. So come play along on Scrap Our Stash Challenges. The inspiration page that Joni has created is located here.

Isn't it cute? Things that struck me were:
  • Bright, fresh colors - orange and ocean blue/teal
  • polka dot paper
  • border punches
  • the fun sentiment placement (vertical & horizontal)
So my Pagerize entry took some of those elements that I love, which, incidentally, are also out of my comfort zone. For example, my sentiments are always horizontal. I know - go ahead - call me boring ;)

Happy Anniversary
Stamps: Enjoy the Ride (Papertrey Ink); Pattern Alphabet & Numbers (Creative Clear Stamps)
Paper: Paper Basics Card Stock - Kraft (Papertrey Ink); Key Ingredient Kit - Petals & Paisley (Taylored Expressions); Offbeat (Basic Grey); Classical Botanical (Martha Stewart); various Scrap
Ink: Perfect Match Pigment Ink - Orange Zest (Papertrey Ink); Earth Elements - Chocolate Chip (Stamping Up!)
Embellishments: Rustic Button Twine - Jute (Papertrey Ink); Nestabilities - Standards Circle Small (Spellbinders); Softcore Colored Pencil (Prismacolor)

I tried a twist on creating a banner, but instead of the cute triangles, I opted for little round circles. Here is hoping that there was enough adhesive to adhere them to the twine.

This card also fulfills another challenge that I wanted to par-take in for a long, long while. Actually, I stumbled across this via the very vibrant Vera (like that use of alliteration?), who I met at CHA this year. She serves as a DT Darling for wee Memories. And with such a cute name - how can one say "no" to that challenge? Alas, amongst all the on-going business trips I am finally getting to squeeze it in there and really tickled that I get to play!

The theme is "Scallops, Orange, and String" - pick two. If I incorporate all three, do I get extra credit? ;) Here is a close up of the Orange-goodness and a wee scallop in the background.

Happy Anniversary

Well, that's all folks. I'm off to a Indian wedding this weekend (so excited - never been to one) - so I'll have a wedding card to post in the next few days.

This is so cute and so fun! Love how you created your scallop sentiment with letters and string!! I love that you used all three of the elements. No extra credit but I'll give you a virtual hi-5 for going all out! :) Glad you joined us at Wee Memories :)

That's freaking adorable. Wow. Where to start?

I love your circle banner. There's a banner challenge going on over at SCS. You should post this and get more love.

I absolutely love that car and have been resisting that set. I know it's futile, but it's a game I play.

I love the color scheme too.
