LOAD #16

This was a fun one! I was able to post this in three different spots on Let's Scrap. 1. For the LOAD challenge. (to find out about the LOAD Challenge, visit here.) 2. For the Scrap Your Stash Challenge and 3. Posted into the gallery for following the weekly sketch. And Guess What? The weekly sketch has a random drawing from all the entries--
I'm gonna get a bunch of October Afternoon goodies!

I'm also entering this over on Use It Tuesday, where Tuesday's Challenge was to use two hoarded items. Well I can tell you that not one sheet of paper or brad or bling is less than two years old! Most of the paper is from Close To My Heart and there is one piece from Fancy Pants.
I've been visiting that blog for quite some time, but this is the first time I've entered anything.

The Scrap Your Stash Challenge (#32) on Let's Scrap gives you a list of items to use. When I saw the list I thought there was NO WAY I was going to put all those things together.
Here is the list:
3 patterned papers ( I ended up using 5! )
2 different washi tape
rub-ons (the lettering and the "You Rock My World" are rub-ons)
1 die cut (cricut cut the dragon flies and journaling spot)
3 eyelets/ brads/bling (used 3 brads, 3 pearls and 2 blings!)

I would never have put this many patterned papers together if it wasn't for this challenge! 
I was surprised how well it came together!


  1. Great layout! I love the way you managed to take so many different DPs and make them look like they blend so well together! Great layers. I'm so glad you finally decided to play along with us and I look forward to seeing more from you in upcoming challenges :)
    Thanks for joining us at Use It Tuesday this week.
