National Scrapbooking Day!

supplies used:
letters: American Crafts
pattern paper: American Crafts
Happy day!  My day started off with cutting coupons and grocery shopping at 3 grocery stores!  hey, we have food--EVERYONE is happy now! :)  Anyway after all that we picked up a new little desk for DS from my parents, (it's a nice little desk and he is excited to have space to create and write.)  And setting up the new mattress for DD,  I planned on making bread but umm.. it didn't happen..... 
I really didn't start playing a long at Creative Scrappers and Two Peas in Bucket until 3pm this afternoon. With minor interruptions I was able to create 2 layouts & a card-- I know watch out! :)  Without further blabbin' from me here ya go:
I have to tell you this was truly a CHALLENGE for me.  Sweet and simple no pattern paper was the challenge.  Ugh!--what to do?  Tattered Angel mist and fancy pants rubons.  All but the mist are from the May kit at Scrapbook Circle.  I am pleased with the simpleness--made me 
S-T-R-E-T-C-H!  Don't think I will be doing it again anytime soon.... :)
supplies used:
cardstock: Bazzill
rubons: Fancy Pants
mist: Tattered angels
lettering: Jillibean soup
supplies used:
pattern paper: Scenic Route
letters: American Crafts
circle: Accent Essentials cartridge
jewels: hobby lobby
stars: Fancy Pants

Now this one, I LOVED...took a while to find the perfect paper with colors, but when I did, it flew together.  And what's more fun is that I've had these letters for over a year and I was able to create words with the leftover letters!  I even used my cricut to cut the circles--woohoo--love that thing!  And yes, there is stitching and bling!

Phew!  Thanks for hanging in there with me!--I'm a little tired myself!  DH is waiting to watch a movie with me.  (yes, man)

Oh, for those of you that were curious or not,  I DID like X-men origins Wolverine, wowzers--there was a lot of action and it answered a lot about him and what is in the movies (well, if you were paying attention to details....)  Best jet for now, thanks for stopping by!  Hope you spent it having fun!
