"But I bought a big hat..." & FIRST Scrap Our Stash Challenge POST!

Monday, July 8, 2013

 It feels like forever since I posted anything....
I have been busy creating, just haven't been able to post anything yet :)  Keeping secrets is hard!  
But, this one is out now!  I am a new DT at the SCRAP OUR STASH Challenge Blog 
and this is my first layout for the JULY Challenge!

It is a Red, White & Blue color challenge and to use at least 3 stars or any type on your page!
( You can also use kraft in your project... ) 
Pretty easy challenge to do, especially this time of year!  

 I chose a photo from our trip to the beach last month, and used these red and 
white polka dot doilies that I have had in a drawer in the kitchen for years.  
I kept meaning to pull them out at Valentine's or birthdays or anytime and kept forgetting. 
I finally decided to bring them to a place they would get used!  

(My craft room...duh.  Don't know why I didn't think of that before.)

I didn't really have a "title" for the page but wanted to use this quote from Dr. Seuss about the hat.
I love hats and this one is definitely my "time for vacation to start" hat!  
I loved the quote since these little people can be trouble, but are also the most precious of troubles!

Since I had that quote written fairly large, I decided to use this kraft envelope to tuck a 
journaling tag into. I started with some watercolor on my background and then painted 
some stars I cut out on the Silhouette too.  I couldn't decide where to stop with the stars, 
so I just included them all!  Some chipboard, wood veneer, stickers, even a metal star mini brad!

My latest scrapbooking theory: "When in doubt, keep adding stuff!"  
Real deep, I know ;)

I am really excited about this team, there are lots of great challenges and some great 
inspiration from lots of talented ladies!  Since this is the debut month for the new DT, they have
had the intros to the team members along with that designer's first layout.

They are all pretty amazing so go check out the BLOG and link up your challenge!
Thanks for stopping by today!  Happy Monday!
