A MyScraps page + a Creative Scrappers sale!

Happy Saturday, friends!  This has been a crazy and stressful week for me...I know I haven't posted that much.  I have a lot to share in the coming week, so I'm starting with a fun page I created for the My Scraps Sketch's Sketch #49.  I used a combination of American Crafts...Cut & Paste and Lucky Charm.  They all work so well together.  The blue and white polka dotted paper is a piece from my stash, and I punched the hearts from vellum.

I love these burlap flowers...a LYB clearance find at Michael's :)  That is a K&Co. brad that I received in a product swap years ago.  Sometimes it pays to hoard...haha!  It's a great feeling to pull something really old out of your stash and finally use it!

I textured up my background a bit with modeling paste.  It's always a nice way to jazz up a background without going crazy.  If you scrap it thin enough, it leaves just a hint of shape.  I lightly inked over it to give it a bit of a dirty look to match up with all the browns in my page.

Finally, if you haven't heard, we're having a Pinspirational Crop in the beginning of November!  It's going to be a lot of fun.  If you haven't joined our boards yet, please do :)  If you do, please tell them I sent you...the DT is having a contest to see who can get the most members to join!  We would love to see you there!

Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!  Stay tuned for a new Creative Scrappers reveal's going to be AMAZING!!  And if you haven't seen yet....
