Wowsers!!!

Wowsers....coz I stunned myself. The One Page at a Time kit was such a breeze to scrap with....I didn't have problems coming up with my minimum DT requirements at all and did one extra layout!!! I still have enough for a few more...the kit is just so awesome and so generous and soooo inspiring to work with. This is what I came up with...
ok....little known fact....in fact...I didn't even realise it myself.....I have never ever used pink alphas....I don't own any.....never thought of buying any....and actually thought it was a problem getting pink alphas in my kit..........even on the my son flower layout......the pink alphas really balance the layout......that's it...I have to get out of my comfort zone and buy alphas in all the different colours....be bold.....go PINK!!!!LOL....I left the clipboard to the last.....I was kinda stumped....so I decided to alter the clipboard so that i can still use it as a functional clipboard....not just a decorative item....so my LOTD clipboard was born...so I can clip up my latest layout and admire it for a while. When mod podging the clipboard......my brain remembered a tip.....I poured on the modpodge and used an old credit card (was just a store card)....and used that to spread the mod podge around....the result was fabulous...no brush strokes....just nice even smoothness...like icing a cake....tee hee....

And my brain....hmmm....my brain stores lots of info.....it seems to absorb lots of 'how to' tips......I don't know why...but it just does. It's kind weird and bizarre.....I wish that my brain will remember my shopping list....my dwindling bank balance when I am scrap shopping....that I must order school books and uniforms for next year....I wish my brain would remember useful things like that. lol

So all in all.....a very scrap productive weekend!!
